Fedizens of the #Fediverse ..

I want to attract attention to the #weblite hashtag, as something important is happening!

@alexandra and @alcinnz have kicked of a great initiative to finally address the #BloatedWeb and bring it back to its essence.

Existing standards bodies like #WhatWG #W3C #IETF have lost their way. Long-lasting #BigTech influence has led to #web #specs that serve current #browser monopolists only.

A better alternative is now emerging on #Codeberg ..


New #weblite overview post: It's (or rather it will be) a family of specifications for a lighter-weight Web without scripting and focused on being simple enough to implement relatively easily, but still mostly compatible with existing simple sites.

The current plan is for the draft specs to go in
the Weblite Codeberg organization. We should be able to accept contributions without a Codeberg account via email, though it may be more cumbersome than we'd like.

The main hub for conversation is currently the
#Weblite tag on fedi, which isn't really optimal as hashtag searches are sometimes unreliable and don't necessary see everything. We'd like to get a better place to talk for that reason, maybe IRC/XMPP/Matrix, maybe mailing lists, maybe something else.

The specs currently planned for the first round are XMLite, HTMLite (based on XMLite's data model), CSSLite, and a bundle of recommendations for protocol and URI support. Standardizing
HTMX as a user-agent feature for scriptless interactive applications more sophisticated than forms and links has also been floated and seems like a popular idea.

The main people who have actually started work on things are
@alcinnz@floss.social (who's most of the way through writing the first draft of the HTMLite specification as I understand it) and myself (I've sketched XMLite in informal terms and I'm currently admin-ing the Codeberg organization). Please pitch in if you have anything you'd like to contribute, use the #weblite tag so we can see it!

⚠️REMINDER: Only download Inkscape from trusted sources and be cautious about emails with links, even if they claim to be from the project. If there's any doubt go to the source. The latest, validated release will always be available for free on our website.

Boosts appreciated.

Congratulations to @PINE64 for launching the #pinephonepro - just like the original #pinephone, this will surely be an amazing catalyst for the whole alternative Linux smartphone OS community! 🚀

So if you have been under a rock today, here's the original announcement: pine64.org/2021/10/15/october-

Google Chrome is NOT a legit browser choice. Spread the word.

Is there an authentic website to purchase bitcoins which is not hosting trackers and is not on cloudflare?

It baffles me that at the beginning of this week, it was revealed that Anil Ambani, Nira Radia, Kiran M Shaw, Sachin Tendulkar, Ajit Kerkar, Vinod Adani et al all stashed money in offshore companies, but TV channels and MSM thought SRK’s son Aryan Khan was the more imp story.

Hi folks does anyone knows of a website which hosts latest programming e-books for free. Not in particular by known publishers but good in content.

Hi folks, require some help. Is there an iOS app for peer tube

TIL that iphones regularly transmit the Mac addresses of devices attached to the same WiFi network to Apple. In addition to their geographical location of course.

So essentially you can be tracked across all locations where an iPhone is near you (and you haven't disabled your WiFi).



Monthly reminder that Twitter is awful for privacy (and in other ways). Switch to Mastodon instead and take back control of your data.


Web 1.0: Decentralized. Every company hosted their own email servers, sites, DNS, etc.

Web 2.0: Centralized. Controlled by Google, Facebook, Amazon, Slack, CloudFlare and others.

Web 3.0: Decentralized again? I doubt the web2.0 owners will allow it without a fight.
