This friday at #OW2con18 @benoitmortier1 and me will give a talk about @FusionIAMorg, a full Identity and Access Management solution, relying on free softwares only.
Following up on the #github fiasco, maybe on top of only using #FOSS software, and federating as much as possible along #selfhosting, what we really need is agent-centric naming and #identity system (also to allow for nomadic identity for #Mastodon and the fediverse).
I wonder if we could use something similar to IPNS (in the #IPFS project)? https://github.com/ipfs/specs/tree/master/architecture
Or maybe simply https://www.opennic.org

Also, in german we don't have a term similar to "geek".
I really think we should rediscover the method of #dialogue.
The bigger the squares the most important is the #method.
But I know by experience how hard is to keep everybody open to listen.
People are naturally scared at this.
@Gargron@mastodon.social A valid concern if posting too many unrelated topics "as the same source". Read on to see why I SPLIT my activity into several ACCOUNTS, + why this (increasing) #informationOverload #dilemma should be addressed at the core of the #Mastodon #platforn. #strategy Show more
If we focus on the purpose (normally; engage, enlighten, move or entertain various individuals or groups), then what we DON'T want, is to BORE them with some topics while they already enjoy others.
We want to help them #filter out uninteresting ones that causes them to loose interest in our posts alltogether, from a time/cost perspective.
I am in the middle of exploring the practicalities of separating my public activities across 3 axis:
The account names that represent "identities" have a nick name + XV as a common denominator SUFFIX. The rest use logical words.
