New CNI channel & call for curators!

  
We are also looking for people who want to help finding good sources of high quality inspirations and put some time into re-publishing content with meaningful comments. Such contribution would be highly appreciated and help us take the "CNI Coop Social center" off the ground.

The goal is to create information channels  covering the topics under broad definition of "Liberatory technology" — technology cultivated and implemented to empower self-organised communities.

We can define them as we wish. We have our own server, with installed Hubzilla (federated social network software) and full administrative control. The crucial thing is to get people on board, who'd take care of selectng quality (real, meaningful and practically oriented) content, put some intelligent introduction, hashtags and publish.

We want to make it a popular source among federated networks and bring more people both to the topic of technology as a tool for grassroot political change and to support CNI efforts in this area.

Talk to us, if you are interested. Share anyway.

New CNI channel!

  últim editat: Fri, 11 May 2018 08:45:16 +0300  
So, we start a new information channel. "Low & Appropriate Trusted TEchnology" aka L.A.T.TE feed.
It has three goals:
— to create a place where hand-picked and curated low-tech solutions will be presented, commented and discussed, outside of corporate media cage;
— to bring more people to our #Hubzilla instance and eventually get them involved in our projects;
— to increase visibility of our (micro)donation system, soon to be implemented online.
You can see the channel here: https://cni-coop.net/channel/cni-latte-feed, subscribe to RSS here: https://cni-coop.net/feed/cni-latte-feed or reach out across federated social media to add us: cni-latte-feed@cni-coop.net

Email connector soon!

Other channels will start gradually, as we get more people on board, to take care of the content.

The link to the channel does not work because of the comma following it. Here it comes again:

Thanks for the correction. Some editors prevent it -- i will be more careful now.

Charger/controller for wind turbine generator
!Community Network Infrastructure Cooperative
Hey,
I am looking for a source to buy (or order custom made) a charger/controller for wind electricity generator. Input up to 150 V DC, output 24 V DC. Power up to 1000 Watt. For now I need to get one, for prototyping needs, later about 10 per batch. Can you help me, please?

*** EU only! *** (or not, if you can help with importing it)
  
I am now approaching 50th anniversary of the dramatic moment when my older sister, fed up with reading stories aloud for me, taught me how to read.

Looking back now, I realize that overwhelming majority of my readings were from speculative fiction area, with rare but notable exceptions of encyclopedias, some more clear-minded philosophical writings and quite a bit of technology sources.

But what shaped me in the existential level was, without a shade of doubt, Science Fiction and Fantasy.

I lived thousands of lives in thousands of universes. I was human, alien, machine, ghost, abstract and everything in between. I was living happily ever after, dying one death or another, changing the course of cosmic history or being crushed in the mill thereof.

On different angle, I have been granted a direct and indirect commune with the brightest minds of humanity -- creators and those who supported them with knowledge and wisdom.

Now, when the time is coming for new stage in my life, again I am revisiting old readings, like old friends -- not all of them, only those most trusted and wise.

I have changed a lot during half of century -- and I am happy to say that I keep changing. And I see an array of books behind me and ahead -- like stepping stones floating in the air, paving my way across nothingness. Magically, some of them reappear in front of me and help me make another step, and another...

This kind of pensive mood is not typical for me. There is a reason for it. I revisited a special friend, one Harry Dresden, a street wizard from Chicago. I joined him again in his struggle with internal and external daemons and again he reminded me that the way out is through. And that the only power we can wield is the power to make our own choices. Not much more. Sigils, wands, guns or flak jackets are just gadgets. The choice and determination are the long and the short of it.
Hell yeah!

Regular reminder: "legal name" is a very boring sounding phrase.

It sounds WAY cooler if you call it your "government alias"

#2: How to diagnose and troubleshoot federation

!Hubzilla Support Forum
Connecting with my other account in hubzilla went without a problem. Now, I activated some federation plugins (see the screenshot) and tried to connect to my mastodon account (https://walkaway.space/@Petros) but I only have a view of public profile. No notification is visible on Mastodon site, neither I see a way to add my hubzilla account to the list on mastodon.
I tried to send a message from mastodon to my channel here, but there is no sign of it.

Thank for kicking me in the right direction. FAQ is going to be my favourite reading, as well.
Now, when I found a place to get answers, I feel much more comfortable with my job of deploying Hubzilla.
  
What is https://grid.reticu.li/post ? Looks like this is nextCloud with broken cert.
I also have empty string in my queue. What does it mean?

That's my old hub. It's dead and should eventually vanish from your queue.
#1: "random" changes in directory display

  
!Hubzilla Support Forum
Hello,
I have 4 active channels for 2 accounts (1 + 3) defined in our instance. During last two days their visibility in public directory changed without apparent reason.
from all four visible, to sinle (CNI) and this morning to two (default channels for both accounts).
Remaining channels show in global directory nevertheless.

I have public visibility enforced on admin level.
How can I control this behaviour?


Imatge/fotoImatge/foto
  
The local directory is also served by a directory server by performing a hidden search for channels using your hostname. These should not change randomly, so something seems to be causing the variability. I don't know currently what this is and this is the first report of this behaviour. Unfortunately we can't fix it until we find a way to reproduce it. If any of these channels created clones, these may have been created with a different primary server or changed their privacy mode to something hidden. I don't know for sure, but throwing out ideas  of what kinds of things might affect this visibility. The public visibility setting isn't retroactive. If I recall it only affects directory updates which are made after it changes.
  
Harper, in this moment i see 3 channels in your 'local directory' (your hub), but I also see 0 channels here https://cni-coop.net/siteinfo/json , so, I think that is very strange...

channels_total    0
hide_in_statistics    0
channels_active_halfyear    0
channels_active_monthly    0
local_posts    0
local_comments    0
  
I will keep my eye on it. The instance is not yet fully configured, so maybe something will kick in...

Thanks for looking at it.
