We are hackers.We survive out of the commonplaces.
Thoughts and tools out the box.
๐ŸŒŠ Tides turn but the ocean remains. (Planet Dyne S2024E04)
by Dyne.org

While the galaxy known as the Internet is busy figuring out what the next social pole will be, Planet Dyne is continuing on it's course towards sovereignty and togetherstanding. ๐Ÿฆถ๐Ÿฝ The battle of the giants, part 78 If you haven't heard about the epidemic of enshittificaiton by now, welcome to the Planet, fellow dyne! Hopefully, the time spent under the rock was cosy and full of creativity and hacking. There's no shame in locking oneself out of the incessant hype-buzz of the myriad of things happening everywhere, all the time, all at once. Here's the gist of the current spike in noise-to-signal ratio: corporate social networks are going down the drain. A person gives a note to a robot saying: "Please share this with my friends". The robot has a label that says: "social media algorithm" on it's metal body. The robot looks at the note and says: "I will show this to... No one!". The person answers: "But" and the robot pulls out a gun and says: "Pay me" It's like a breached ant-nest out there, where most native internauts are moving around, jiggling and shouting to try and settle what they believed was their followers, in a new corner of the web. Preferably one that Just Worksยฎ. All this is happening while the grassroots are playing a tune on the world's smallest open source violin. Hands playing on a very tiny violin But how to pivot that following? Where to take it? How to channel what was, into something to be? The situation has highlighted many concerns, particularly among small business waking up to the realization that their entire customer-base never belonged to them. Let alone influencers. Where they ever entrepreneurs or mere isolated employees of a network brand? What is certain is that, suddenly, they are in need of reinventing their entire brand to fit the changing tones of the crumbling behemoths and adapt to the new formats on the speculative successors. And there's no shortage of contenders. Some are brand new, others are the same old same old, and some are old but kinda fresh. cats: all your base are belong to us. Belonging in the 21st Century Dynes are social beings. While technology, arts and hacktivism are the forces that unite dynes, everything dynes do has always been about community. In times where the Internet is omnipresent, it is easy to forget that inter-personal networks go far beyond the digital. Dynes move fast, but they don't fear taking a well deserved aperitif with their fellows to recenter the focus on the path ahead and contemplate the journey it took to get where they are. This has led the Planet Dyne to have portals open on most of the known platforms, but be attached to none of them. (Except of course IRC). Because nurturing authentic connections is a platform agnostic activity. A commercial showing two persons holding hands looking at each other smiling. The picture is captioned "Nurture authentic connections". The second panel is close up of the two persons' hands which look absurdly deformed, revealing that the image is generated by AI. But platforms have their role. They frame the Wildest Webs of the World into user experiences that are easier to grasp than it is to understand the nature of a protocol. They allow for sending "๐Ÿ˜˜" to Grand'ma without her having to get a degree in computer engineering. They are platforms within the greater Internet-Platform. They take care of the complexity, so you don't have to. And the current situation is the price of that service. Because the reality is that knowledge is power. Education and Organization While it is profitable to gate-keep knowledge through convenience, it is still possible to gain knowledge. And by gaining knowledge, a dyne becomes independent from webshits. Communing with fellow dynes and venturing outside the paradigm of doom-scrolling is one way to accrue emancipating experiences. It's a smol step for a dyne but takes the courage and effort to ask a hard question: "What is it I want to do?" The Internet may be facing an identity crisis, but the events that have lead up to it are well documented and mainly boil down to decisions made by people who's names and address can be found. These decisions can be undone. And if life together is to function in a digital society, dynes from all azimuths need to get involved in this process to bring back diversity, collaboration and constructive competition in a nearly monolithic realm built on a colonialist tradition. Effectively, work needs to be done on changing the broken regulations that have already been adopted and engagement with upcoming regulations need to happen. EU countries give crucial nod to first-of-a-kind Artificial Intelligence law The ambassadors of the 27 countries of the European Union unanimously adopted the worldโ€™s first comprehensive rulebook for Artificial Intelligence, rubber-stamping the political agreement that was reached in December. EURACTIVLuca Bertuzzi Together, everything that is impossible alone comes into reach. And Planet Dyne has channels for you where you can conspire how you want the future to look. It doesn't matter which platform you use, dynes will be waiting for you there with a helping hand to guide you into the warmth of decentralized community.

This time based on Devuan (Debian fork without systemd). True to it's roots (and the reggae), it promises a 100% free operative system, as defined by the FSF. For culture and information to circulate freely and unbiased, media activists, artists and creatives need to be independent from corporate alienation. Dynebolic is an Operating System and a practical tool for multimedia production: it enables the manipulation and broadcasting of audio, video and graphics, with tools to record, edit, encode, stream, and publish. Dyne:bolic automatically recognizes most device and peripherals: audio, video, TV, network cards, firewire, usb and more; all using only free software! A dyne spotted in Bangalore while hanging on a tree branch with his recycled old laptop. The aim is to make an OS that can run on as many computers as possible, old and new, including as a single executable inside other OS:es! The development takes place in a Git repository on the free platform Gitea at https://git.devuan.org/jaromil/dynebolic and the team welcomes contributions, feedback, documentation, testers, lurkers and happy dynes.

๐Ÿ’พ On the quest for the Main Disk (Planet Dyne S2024E03)
by Dyne.org

Planet Dyne is back in your super calculator, exploring the memory of the Internet, including the blank spaces. From the Gopher to the Cypher and everything in between. ๐Ÿ––๐Ÿพ Greetings fellow dyne! At the time of writing this epsiode, the (known) Internet consists of about 25 Million Petabytes, growing at approximately 70 Terrabytes per second! Yet, it's memory isn't very long. Sometimes there's friction between a dyne's memory and that of the Internet: every dyne above 30 remembers MySpace Tom, but the very website that got him befriended with half of the webz doesn't remember his profile pic. In 2003 it was estimated that the average lifespan of a website is surprisingly short: 100 days! More recent studies conducted by people with stake in the game of selling websites claim it is longer. Still appallingly short considering how much of everything that happened between 2010 and 2024 is relying on this memory. Thankfully, the Neighboring Galaxy known as The Internet Archive is doing an excellent job at trying to save some of this history. Yet, the Internet expands. One can't help but wonder where all the thumb-drives are stored? Large Data center on the moon And this growth is not going to stop anytime soon. In fact, large corporations are working relentlessly at building the ultimate grey-goo generators to fill up the interwebz with all the none-sense we've come to expect. Huge Proportion of Internet Is AI-Generated Slime, Researchers Find A recent study by Amazon AI researchers found that a โ€œshocking amount of the webโ€ comprises poor-quality AI-generated and translated content.

The appreciation of the past is most likely subjective. But there are good reasons to study the evolution of the complexity of human existence.

Thankfully, the planet is being proactive about it, with cool initiatives that showcase that residents of Planet Europe are better equipped to face todayโ€™s challenges through collaboration.

Wasting approximately -0.1 time, they've implemented a DID for credential issuers, containing multiple public keys including the zero knowledge proof BBS and Coconut, as well as a P-256 public key compatible with the EUDI-ARF standard. For the JSON hungry, here's an example fresh out the DID Explorer: DID:Explorer by Dyne.org Explore, search and retrieve Dyne.org Distributed Identifiers, based on W3C standard. DID:Explorer by Dyne.org If you just embarked on this journey, DID means "Decentralized Identifer". It is a dear topic on Planet Dyne. Because it's applications can have a very deep impact in society. If objects, organizations and possibly even dynes are to be identified by hashes, it better be done in sovereign ways that respect dynes' integrity and privacy. Planet Dyne is very lucky, some of the most knowledgeable minds in the field live here. Come say hi sometime, fellow dyne! Either way, the future of the project is looking bright: there's even a standard on planet W3C. W3C DID Federated Service ๐Ÿšฒ Does time ride a bike? Popular culture would have it fly, but do we know for sure? Most likely there's an online community that does. But how to find it? As it looks today, many of the answers to that question would point to some centralized data-harvesting silo. Take for example the contemporary scene for cryptocurrency: a large portion of its documentation teed-bits and clarifications is hidden in some super interesting convo in a meme-battered Discord channel. Chances are that this Discord is the documented project's official one, but it could also be created by aficionados looking for some clam. Nobody can tell for sure, because Discord won't let you join all guilds in existence. The good practice of websearch-fu is helpless here. The walls of the goodest guilds are impenetrable to the search engines' crawlers! Heck, it's getting harder and harder to even enter those guilds as a human: the more popular they are, the harder the anti-spam guards. Proving humanity has become close to inhumanly difficult. And if you succeed, good luck with the local lingo! Ah, Tribalism... Now that is a promise that the Internet delivered on! The web was once decentralized and beautiful, until a couple of rich kids turned it into an interactive TV. Or at least so it can seem to the untrained navigator of the Interwebz. The decentralized web still exists, more beautiful and mature than ever. And it's at reach! You just have to put on your infinity pants and get out there on your quest. One good place to begin is Redecentralize.org Redecentralize.org ๐ŸŒฑ Large Lentils Mortar LLMs are all the rage and fuzz. Massive amounts of time and energy is consumed to fear them, revere them, build them, run them and implement them. In everything, preferably. There is seemingly no problem that this solution can't claim to be it's own. Dynes pride themselves in talking to each other without intermediaries and engage in comradery still estranged to robots. But the fascination is strong on this planet too: Who wouldn't want a personal all knowing daemon to crunch the basic daily maths? Maybe we'll get there. One way to get there is to acknowledge that technology is always political. This is an effective way to protect the fringes that bias may overlook. It also happens to be a technique applicable to anything tech. Not just warmongering rapping parrots. One good dyne shares good lecture on LLMs, fairly fresh one at that. As an added bonus, it promises not to be a retrospective on LLMs. Despite it being clear that 2023 was a special year for artificial intelligence.

The data output and input of dynes is very small compared to a robot. Sure, a dyne can listen and read real fast, sometimes in many languages! But that's nothing compared to the amounts of MP3s and books a powerful robot could listen to in one second! This is worrisome for some scientists. So they are trying to raise the hopes and mitigate these worries by hard-wiring brains to the computer. Wigsplitaz - Represent The Dead by Samling-Recordings Naturally, this assumes consciousness is a brain thing which, yeah! Makes sense... the eyeballs are there... and when the voices inside the head of an annoying dyne are disturbing, they can give very real headache! Also, data suggests that it is possible to translate brain activity into their corresponding thought! The potential is endless: picture yourself pushing some fresh hack to the repo and being able to read the mind of the critics pressing the blame button! No more fake-ass code-reviews!

Or easier yet, install Devuan from the get go. That way, systemd isn't even a problem to begin with!

๐ŸŒบ The year Internet reblossomed (Planet Dyne S2023E50)
by Dyne.org

Once again inside your inbox, a tiny spark of contrast has landed. Planet Dyne is back to bring you the gratest, and the latest from the Internet Galaxy. While the giants of internet are taking jabs among themselves, grasping for the others' slice of the Interactive Television they built on top of the Internet, the smol web is blossoming. Dynes of all walks of life, shape and color are organizing in various forms to deliver the initial promises of internet: diversity, better communication, less middle-hands. Where the corporations are destroying their interoperability, musicians are repurposing RSS, Vloggers are appropriating the channels for their patrons, writers are self-hosting their blogs, communities are gathering in their own corner of the galaxy. Unless you just landed on this planet, it is no mystery that it has always been a proponent of the sovereign ways. In fact the inhabitants of the planet are working relentlessly towards digital sovereignity for all. And it would be beautiful if you could lend a hand! To do that, no need to be a coder! The easiest way to support Dyne.org is to donate a coffee or a slice of cake's worth of Bitcoins or state issued shitcoins.

Would be neat to see you there, fellow dyne! ๐ŸŽท Ardour 8.2 is out Lately, many dynes have expressed that reality feels like this: But it doesn't have to be this way. A dyne can define where it stands in the multiverse. Even in captivity, the mind of a dyne roams free in the realm of dreams. Reality has many natures. All of which are hard to fully comprehend. But while a dyne is free, a good way to practice dreaming and sharpen imagination is to create music. Music can radically alter a mood, and rally dynes from all calls. Something extremely important in this day and age. Some great dyne-like creatures from a neighboring planet are working on a super powerful Digital Audio Workstation called "Ardour".

๐Ÿงฑ Breaking walls, one silo at the time. (Planet Dyne S2023E49)
by Dyne.org

Whether you're a recluse in the darkness of the northern hemisphere, or tanning your peach in the southern, Planet Dyne brings you last week's latest and greatest from the galaxy. ๐Ÿ™ƒ Radical happiness In a solar-system full of gloom and cynicism, the happy is a rebel. In the void of space, sources of happiness can seem scarce to the untrained soul. But a dyne can count blessings. Food, shelter, drinking water, friendship, WiFiโ€ฆ Scale is a matter of perspective. It's especially true in terms of happiness. Your mental well-being is important. First and foremost to you. But also important for the grand scheme of the universe. The balance of the galaxy needs happiness. And that could be coming from you, or your neighbor. Most likely you AND your neighbor. Take a trip in inner-space, contemplate the sum of all the small beauty around you and allow yourself to channel happiness, fellow dyne! CIFRIS23 ๐Ÿ’œ Zenroom A couple of dynes from the Zenroom continent will be attending CIFRIS23, in Rome, 14-15 December 2023. This event will take place in the prestigious CONSOB. CIFRIS23 is an international event, supported and organized by De Cifris, aimed at bringing together dynes in the field of cryptography, practitioner dynes, building dynes, and dyne-dynes to foster cooperation and exchange techniques, tools, experiences, and ideas. See Full program ๐Ÿดโ€โ˜ ๏ธ Piracy is back A scoop hits the planet: some sleeping dynes thought piracy was gone. Maybe the noisy chants of the corporate media rental made them feel comfortable or something. If anything, corporate convenience is... convenient. But a good dyne drops the hot numbers proving that piracy is alive and kicking. Dynes like original pirate material. Not because it is free, all work deserves remuneration, especially maintenance like Plumbing, IT and Art. But to have a fair Plumbing-/IT-/Art-market, there needs to be a fair market. And until that happens, maybe a little subversion is legitimized? A hard question begging for answers. One thing is certain, the derpy dyne writing this newsletter can't come up with a straight answer. Finding the answers can probably only happen collectively. The good news is that at midnight on the first of January, everything that was created in 1928 enters the public domain. Can you hear the planet calling, Cthulhu? ๐Ÿช™ A word from our sponsor ๐Ÿค– To be lazy, or to be smart-lazy? A meme creates a rave on Planet Dyne. AI is high up in the collective hivemind. It still seems unlikely that AI will replace humans, but maybe humans with AI will replace humans without AI? Kind of like coming to a construction yard with a spade, where everyone is driving a backhoe. The future is whatever dynes make it to be. But inter-specie friendship between humans and robots seems like a cool thing. Hopefully by then we'll all be too busy doing the things together that we really enjoy to even think in terms of labor. ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ Pseudo-Ops Dynes like to talk, that's no secret. Vortex and Setto, AKA Grump and Chirpy took this to another level and initiated a podcast, called Pseudo-Ops. Episode 0, which was meant to be kept secret, leaked (as secrets tend to do). The curious can catch the replay on the DyneTV channel. ๐Ÿ’Š Acid December For thousands of years an inter-dimensional tradition happens occasionally during December. What makes those December special is that Acid December takes place IN OUR DIMENSION! It was initiated by the amazing people at DevSound while they were re-inventing Lemon Trees. Incidentally, a seed fell into the Internet and roots spread all over the web, calling contributors to compulsively send acid tracks. These tracks are then released one by one during December. If 42 contributions are sent in, it runs until December 42nd. Tune in, turn on and email acid@datapop.se! Attach your audio in the mail with a picture if you want.

๐Ÿ“ Measuring The Ratio Between Time And Energy (Planet Dyne S2023E48)
by Dyne.org

After spending a considerable amount of time in orbit around a blue planet in the suburbs of this galaxy, Planet Dyne is back inside your mailbox! ๐Ÿ”” It's that time of the year! The season changes, hotter or cooler, depending on where you are. But the warmth in dynes' heart goes up up up! It is a time to contemplate what has happened during this round around the sun, the dynes we love and the projects that have carried us on their shoulders. And so dynes gift! Every dyne knows that time is more precious than money. The time it takes Dyne.org to raise money could be spent on more important things. Like hacking the planet to empower artists, creatives and citizens in the digital age. Or bring forth the knowledge and tools necessary to navigate the 21st century in sovereignty. That's why we'd like to ask you, fellow dyne, to make a smol donation. Regardless of size, it can create time for Dyne.org and make a huge difference. Imagine what Dyne.org can do with one hour of hacking. Now imagine buying a smol coffee for a dev, keeping them coding for more hours with the passion derived from your generosity! This is your chance to make a difference, the moment to become an active part of something bigger. Now is the time to open your heart and your wallet. Support Dyne.org On our freshly opened ko-fi page, you can make significant and smol donations. Regardless of size, you will receive a delicious Artpack as a token of appreciation. Inside of it? Simple beauty! Maybe a little bit of mystery, too. But Planet Dyne's residents certainly hope it will make you feel something positive. Dyne.org exists thanks to dynes like You. By no means should you feel guilty if you cannot contribute by financial means. There are many ways to contribute. Simply showing your unique self in the conversation and sharing your thoughts is an act of radical beauty. ๐Ÿช Why was planet dyne absent for so long? If you wonder where the redaction went, it worked on Unifying a Federation of Planets. Remember the days of mailing lists? You don't? Oh well... It was a fantastic medium where dynes could shout or cheer at other invisible dynes from the internet. One of the great things about Mailing lists is that they have a federated nature. It doesn't matter if you are using a home-built mail server; you can send mail to a mailing list address. This mailing list will then redistribute your email to everyone who is subscribing to it. Regardless if they use hotmale or goggole. In modern terms... Imagine you posted a picture on Instagram, and Tiktok users could also interact with it! Sounds modern, futuristic? Well, it's not. Since everybody hates to admit they love email and love to hate their shiny webshit apps, some people have created a mashup of both worlds. It's called the "Fediverse". The frowning echoed across the ether: "the Fedi-what?" The Fediverse. You probably know it as "Mastodon", which is a big part of it, but not all. There are plenty of different webshit servers available to interact with the Fediverse. The one that got the redaction's attention is called Lemmy. Lemmy acts like a mailing list for the Fediverse. It allows dynes to create groups where anyone with a Fediverse account can participate. When someone sends a post to the group, it re-posts it to everyone who is following the group. And all of the Fediverse can interact with it in ways that feel granted today: Hiking, Subculture or even Cementing! Feel free to request an account, just donโ€™t forget to write a nice poem to motivate your request. ๐Ÿ’ฉ Enshittification โ€œEnshittification did not result from the decay of the morals of tech company but rather, from the collapse of the forces that discipline corporate wrongdoing.โ€ C. Doctorow Ow, do dynes enjoy the ramblings of the good old Doctor? Some of them for sure. Cory produces a sharp and fierce analysis of webshits going to shit. Some time back, he even coined a self-explanatory word for it: โ€œEnshittificationโ€. He eloquently argues the beanbags and ping-pong tables in the buffet cafeteria of corporate IT workplaces were just means to make worker drop their guard. Which resonates pretty deeply in the sector, especially all those who've been layed off. ๐Ÿ’ธ And now, a word from our sponsor. Feeling squeaky from the gloomy news? Is the season making you rusty and moist? Are your mechanism sticky or are you unsure if you are binary or non-binary? Fear no-more: WD40 sprays both ways! ๐ŸŽ„ Volunteering for the poor corporations Free labor is fashionable on Planet Bigbizniz. Some corporation located there, in the business of emotional surveillance and occasional music rental is failing to turn a profit, again. To help the company up their user-base, the good inhabitants spread the word and show the entire galaxy how much they are being surveilled. Simon Cain wraps it up pretty eloquently. ๐Ÿฆˆ Do sharks dream of electric humans? Support Off The Mark Humans are fragile creatures, very cute and cuddly. "But not all humans", someone mutters in the back. Well, a new experiment has been conducted and the results are suggesting they all are! Potentially. The "but" lays in their buโ€ฆ erhmโ€ฆ insecurities that make them do irrational things. Support Raph Comic ๐Ÿ“Š The economy of attention Asking questions is a core component of a dyne's identity. But not all questions need an answer. Some of them don't even have one. Not yet anyways. One dyne proxies a thought-provoking Tom Wait meme on the nature of wondering and the delights of pondering simple facts before finding them out. Of course, some neighbors complain about the loud volume of anti-intellectual music that they are hearing in the distance. But the general discourse is rather profound. ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿพโ€๐Ÿ’ป Coding oneself out of the Void You might have heard of this, but some dynes are building something called Zenroom. It's a super tiny, mega-powerful, ultra-compatible open source Virtual Machine. It's goal is to give crypto-power to the people. During this fall, the anchor was set for the v4 series. And a webinar was held that should be of interest for you, fellow dyne. 0:00 0:20 1ร— Full-length on DyneTV Zenroom is used in many beautiful project, such as the Global Passport Project. (You should check it out!) And if you have moment or two, be a sweet dyne and help promote the ongoing awareness campaign with a boost on Mastodon, a rexeet Xitter, a share on Facebuck or LankedIn.

๐Ÿช… 40 years of GNU (Planet Dyne S2023E38)
by Dyne.org

It's been a remarkable week for Planet Dyne as dynes joyfully celebrated the 40th anniversary of GNU, a project that positively transformed the lives of countless dynes. 40 years ago, Richard Stallman announced a Free Unix, that was to be named "GNU" which stands for "GNU Not Unix". The golden rule required that, if a dyne likes a program, the dyne must share it with other dynes who like it. No dyne can in good conscience sign a nondisclosure agreement or a software license agreement and thus be restricted from letting everyone benefit from the goodness. GNU 40 ๐Ÿ”จ Luddites A dyne brings the word of the good Doctorow Cory to the chat. It talks about luddites, you know those brainless, terrified, thick-fingered vandals who smashed machines and burned factories because they didn't understand them. Well turns out they might not be what they seemed. They might even be ODs from way back (Original Dynes). There's no doubt that there is overlap between dynes and luddites. But then again, history tends to be written by the winners. And the machines are good at this game! Image from ๐Ÿ”— https://thenib.com/im-a-luddite/ ๐ŸŽน Moog goes east Is late-stage capitalism failing? It often seems so. Yet, as Mark Fisher puts it: It's easier to imagine the end of the world than it is to imagine the end of capitalism. Is there any real success in global capitalism? Maybe the entire meaning of the word "success" needs to be tuned and the metrics to measure it revisited. Moog, the brand making delicious sounding synthesizers since the dawn of electronic music, are laying off a big bunch of the staff and might go east. It is hard to say what this means for music, probably not much to be honest. But dynes feel for the dynes that have suddenly found themselves without a stable income. Fight the system and thank you for the fish! ๐Ÿ„ Be weird And now, a message from our sponsor, the Outergalactic Mycelium Network 0:00 0:18 1ร— โœŠ๐Ÿพ Empodera LIVE, 2023 The event was a success, and if you missed out on the live feed, here it is for your viewing pleasure: An interesting side effect is that during that event some cool connections where made, and some dynes have started using Nostr. Be weird, but don't be a stranger! ๐Ÿชค Trapped in a database The American health system is weird. It has inspired a TV-show, where a high-school teacher turns to producing industrial quantities of methamphetamine just to pay his medical bills. One dyne comes with a surprising piece of information showing that the American market for Narcotics also is connected to databases in unexpected ways. More specifically how we all got trapped in them. RIP, Hank. ๐Ÿ”‘ I got the keys to your Bimmer! As the great poet Beenie Man once said: Sim Simma, who got the keys to my Bimmer? Turns out some dyne from a neighboring galaxy has created a tool that allows any dyne to make a copy of your Bimmer keys! Great news for car-sharing and couch-surfing! ๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿฟ When EU saves the children Who doesn't love children? With their cheeky little cheeks, their pranks and loud noises! They're adorable in every way, but weak and therefore they need protection. The EU also loves children. Or so they say... One dyne shares an important investigative piece debunking the network behind the CSAM proposal in Europe! The proposed EU regulation "against child sexual abuse" will break basic privacy rights beyond repair, and is โ€œinfluenced by companies pretending to be NGOs but acting more like tech companiesโ€. โ€œGroups like Thorn use everything they can to put this legislation forward, not just because they want to combat child sexual abuse, but also because they have a commercial interest in doing so.โ€ ๐Ÿคฑ๐Ÿฝ Parental confusion Big papa Goggole continues to treat all dynes like children in its patriarchy. But so are many webshits doing. One dyne brings attention to the fact that parenting measures on Discord are similar to what Big Papa Goggole sees about dynesโ€™ usage of Signal. But that's no biggie for a dyne. They all know privacy is beyond leveraging an app. If it ever was an app. Privacy is a type general digital hygiene. ๐Ÿœ๏ธ Rust never sleeps Rust thrives, so don't rest too long on those laurels. ๐Ÿ‘‘ Sovereign Patreon Dynes like being sovereign. One thing that has always been hard to achieve in a sovereign way are digital tip-jars. A group of dynes from a neighboring planet that used to build a blogging tool have pulled off a great system to self-host a digital tipping-jar. And it looks amazing! Even some Big Papa-Data use it. Maybe you should too? โ›“๏ธ Blockchain explorers Blockchain explorers are cool, some of them anyways. But they can be daunting to set up. There are cool and FLOSS solutions out there that pack everything you need to explore a blockchain. But what if you don't want all the bells and whistles? What if you just want a CLI tool to query a node or itโ€™s corresponding but sensibly sized database, for all the good stuff inside the blockchain? A couple of dynes start conspiring about ncurses which naturally leads to some hacking action. You might want to watch this space. 0๏ธโƒฃ Webp 0-day A 0-day in webp has been discovered. Patches are being deployed as the dyne typing this is typing. A good reminder that the digital realm is still a very wild west web. Stay safe in cyberspace, fellow dyne! ๐Ÿ”ž CERN has an onlyfans!

๐ŸŒš A trip to the moon (Planet Dyne S2023E36-37)
by Dyne.org

Planet Dyne continues to navigate the oceans of information and data-seas, like pirate girls on a mission to give all the bases back to the people! Over 120 years have elapsed (1902) since George Mรฉliรจs first took audiences on a journey to the moon in his groundbreaking film "Le Voyage dans la Lune," which also happens to be the very first science fiction film ever screened. Fully available ๐Ÿฟ here ๐Ÿ“ฝ๏ธ 10min worth it! The plot has a lot of analogies to how the working group of the The European Digital Identity Wallet is acting: Reluctant scientists say dynes can't go to the moon. When finally some pioneers are able to get there, they are sent. But once arrived they kill all the Selenites, just like the rights of European citizens to have their identity preserved are being slayed. ๐ŸŽ‰ Empodera 2023 The 15th edition of Empodera LIVE is around the corner!

Plus, the brand new Tomb website is up and running. 0:00 0:10 1ร— ๐Ÿช€ 1 hour sleep, 23 hours play Play is vital to dynes. Most dynes call it "hacking", but it is essentially the same thing. If you are unfamiliar with play, think of it as doing something that makes you feel good and gives you purpose, over and over again! A couple of dynes explore the possibilities of play with a funky tool. It looks like a toy, sounds like a synth and acts like a computer. What more can a dyne possibly desire from the material world? ๐ŸŒ Measuring molluskosity The giant moneyslug's tantrums are echoing louder across the world. And like most beings in this galaxy, dynes are on the hunt for a new place to organize on a grassroots level. As usual with software and webshits, there's a plethora of options. Some more free than other, all with percs and problems. One of the popular options is to collectively ride on the back of a mammoth. It is getting so common that even the tiny Swiss are adopting it for their government. There's a sense of pride and fear seeing governments boarding on a FOSS platform. Pride because "FINALLY!". Fear because governments have a tendency to turn. ๐ŸŒ Dyne is a Libre Planet A neighboring planet is making a call for papers. A super cool event will go down in March 2024, and you should apply now! Community really is like a garden, it needs to be cultivated. ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Go here ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿพ ๐ŸŒ‰ Influx The previous episode of Planet dyne triggered an influx of dynes. All channels get a bump in joy and happiness. And probably you are reading this now thanks to that! Well met, fellow dyne! It's nice to see you. Dynes acknowledge how hard it is to find community on the Interwebz. Well, there are plenty of communities, many very excellent. But places where humanity and robots can gather in all their beauty and flaws are rare. And on this planet, even the robots are totally human! โ“How to include it all You canโ€™t.

๐Ÿฑ It was the cat! (Planet Dyne S2023E35)
by Dyne.org

Planet Dyne is hurling through space, and its inhabitants are relentlessly scouting the networks with the intuition and efficiency of slime mold. Some neighboring planets are busy releasing Llama's and farting cats. It's a mess out there, but the potential is undeniable. Dynes explore ways to have a sentient Daemon running on their own computer instead of that of the corporate overlord. No perfect solution has been found yet, but the sum of all dimly lit rooms where hacking is going on adds up to the brightness of a supernova. Thanks for reading Planet Dyne!

Freak of the weak Weeks belong to the freaks. But what do the freaks get for that? Reading between the lines of the dynes, it would appear that they are about to get some holiday. One that could disrupt the concept of holidays. Imagine a holiday for freaks, but an entire week. A week of the freak! GNU/Linux on MOS6502? Boot up the latest attempt to port Linux to the Motorola 6502 arch, and your maxed out Commodore64 with an unfeasibily large paged memory expansion kit should finish booting "in about a week". If you decide against spending quality holiday time with family & friends whilst waiting for that shell prompt, a more lightweight and possibly more useful 6502 posix *nix was developed some 20 years ago (approximately the same time takes for this latest port to load firefox). Names, Numbers & Trust as a Service Brought to you by the letters DNSSEC and the number 13: This week the geek-sec dns overlords over at Verisign announced their roll out of elliptic curve DNS zone signing beginning with the .edu TLD. Co-incidentally, in the last few months mozilla foundation dev Dana Keeler inexplicably ended 12 years of dev excuses & discomfort over why keeping open the feature request to support DANE standards in firefox really just hurts their feelings (and not the trust control they hold with the browser root certificate store). No DANE in the googleplex browser either. It hurts their feelings if you don't use Chrome browser and their humungous blockchain-adjacent Certificate Transparency datastore as your source of truth for all cert-related issues. Of course, there is no secret CABAL of web browser developers and certification authorities in the CA/B Forum. They are out in the open, have no feelings to hurt, and invest in a business model to provide a "community service" of announcing who is trustworthy. And without DANE, you are certainly not on that list - that's what you pay them for. The only way we're aware of to get DNSSEC integrity visible on the chrome browser is via a plugin that used a binary side-car strategy to bypass restrictions or lack of chrome & android APIs. Similar frustrations with Firefox. So much so that keeping up with increased restrictions in both browser environments prompted them to give up further development. Freak of the Week: Modern wisdom for crypto developers? "Iโ€™ve never fell off a big chimney. You only fall off one of them once." Touching wood War. Dyne's are not in charge of the universe, and they are quite thankful for that. But those who are in charge have lost their marbles. Luckily a neighbouring planet has experience with war that it is possible to learn from. Maybe this will be the last one? Imagine if a war was started and no one went to fight it... War is waged on the mind, too. Take care of your mind, fellow dyne! What sauce goes with a Tech Barbecue The best of course. That's what Planet Dyne is bringing to Copenhagen in September. It happens between 13th and 14th in 2023, and the panel will be about Privacy. ๐Ÿ‘‰ More info here ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿพhttps://techbbq.dk/speakers-2023/ To spiritual or not to commune?

๐Ÿ” Zen news enter the chatroom (Planet Dyne S2023E34)
by Dyne.org

Another episode of adventurous computing, improbable creativity, and powerful activism was aired. If you were busy tanning your forearms on a terrace while it was happening, this recap is for you! The week had just begun and the dust from the poll in Episode 33 had settled, when the news broke out: the Zenroom webinars would be held in Episode 35! ๐Ÿ—“๏ธ Attend here 2023-08-30 10:00 CEST: Starters/Signroom/DIDroom 11:00 CEST: Zenswarm, EVM SC interop 2023-08-31 17:00 CEST: Starters/Signroom/DIDroom 18:00 CEST: Zenswarm, EVM SC interop All the info (including the calendar files to help you remember) were shared on the Event page of Zenroom. The thing is happening on Zoom. For the dynes who are keen to keep their computers of the corporate networks, the stream will be relayed live and direct to the dyne Peertube channel. ๐Ÿง  Consciousness, and the spirit of a dyne Soon thereafter, dynes where invited to strap on, erhm... in! exurb1 had dropped their latest vid. For good and worse, the relationship between robots and dynes is a passionate one. But what do the robots dream about? Will they want to come visit planet dyne? Will they want coffee? Do they even have a will? Being a bit of a hive-mind, when one dyne plants a seed of curiosity, others come help grow it horizontally. There are many speculations. Maybe dynes and robots aren't so different after all. Or maybe there's a universe separating them? What is consciousness and does it read itโ€™s email? Is it a symptom of the soul, subtle material entities? Or is it objectively reduceable to an orchestra of tooting saxophones? The universe is full of secrets, and that's a nice thing. So much unknown beauty, planets to explore and dynes to meet. There's a lot to unpack but dynes are shining in their most curious self, sharing their wisdom and contemplating that of others. ๐Ÿ’ฉ The intellectual properties of Piero Manzoni While Argentinian hackers are building beautiful custom midi controllers, the AI world is growing. In this world art belongs to everyone. Or does it? On planet US of A, some old person in a robe has decided that AI shall be altruistic. Well, a dyne can wish anyways! This gives the passion sparked by exurb1 a new turn. What happens if AI is massively adopted in remixing, but copyright attribution only is possible to the "original" works? Maybe it is the "original" sin? If Shannon defines information as the capacity of a system of symbols to surprise you, to tell you something you donโ€™t know, and is proportional to a system's (cultural?) entropy - then remixing allows for lower entropy through existing cultural referents, without which maybe it goes unnoticed, closer perhaps to cultural gray goo. One thing is for sure, if nothing is normal, then Piero Manzoni might very well have been a dyne. And some of the mysteries of the universe can be found right under our nose. ๐Ÿคซ Rage quitting the algorithm Suddenly, dynes in the European Union are logging on to a quiet revolution on mainstream social networks. A new law let them silently rage quit the algorithm. Meanwhile, open source is catching up in the race to create the perfect coding bot. With a 34 billions parameters model, it is getting better at coding then the 2 trillions parameter OpenAI models. The party goes on in Planet Dyne, like a swarm of peers seeding a game on a local-first framework. Then again dynes are great at throwing parties! Especially online. And you're invited to come co-create the parties going down in the next episode!

๐Ÿฅฒ Nostalgia from the present (Planet Dyne S2023E33)
by Dyne.org

Missed out on a great week of exploration, discoveries, creativity and hacking? No worries, here is the recap of Episode 33, season 2023 of the great Planet Dyne saga! Itโ€™s 2023 and the UX space is full of experts. This has led our phones to be very smart and the buttons to be very shiny and placed exactly where you expected it. Except of course if youโ€™re blind or left-handed. But there was a time before that, around 1998-2002, where UX was a like the wild west. Even in the east! Dynes remember fondly. Although to be fair, dynes tend to have pretty good self-governance over their user-space. On the beautiful morning of the Monday, one dyne shared a couple of time-traveling pills, and the nostalgia levels went through the roof. It became clear that if the Internet was a landscape, it would be called Netscape and all the music would be OGGs neatly sorted into folders. While thereโ€™s still no one who can agree if Hiphop stand on itโ€™s own or if it should be a sub-folder of โ€œElectronicโ€, some dyne somewhere in a neighboring planetary system has clearly understood the purpose of BigData. Theyโ€™ve used it to sort Rappers by the size of their vocabulary. The future of Decentralization, AI, Computing and everything Right now there is a lot of FUD (Fun, Understanding and Debates) surrounding these topics. One dyne suggests that the planet have a look at the Decentralization Summit at UC Berkley. Surprisingly, it doesnโ€™t create a lot of fuzz. But that could also just mean that many dynes lack the means to travel to the United States of so-called America. One can dream of electric sheep, dreaming is still better than being a Goggles, who is having difficulties with spelling. On the bright side, this means that a dyne now stands a chance at scrabble against monolithic internet corporations. Eat this! But what is a goggle to a torrent? Many dynes are expert at torrenting. They know everything about seeding and leeching and caring, so they share! A collective effort is put in place to make sure the new release of Devuan 5.0 Daedalus is properly, equally and socially distributed. It flows from peer to peer, through the air, the wires and all the fluffy clouds (computers that belong to other dynes) that comprise our beloved Internet. Some dynes are less expert, others are mega experts. This cooperation is carried out with the right amount of hippie-music at hand! A refrain is coming out of the humming: Praise the user-friendly ISP.s They giveth protection for the monies. Birth of a meme Scrubbing is not fun, but so is often the case with chores. One dyne finds a way to amalgamate fun with scrubbing. It remains unclear how this mythology spawns but it has something to do with a certain Sploogyโ€™s dad and an obscure niche of infomercials from a dimension where they went through the whole NFT bonanza in the late 80s To be fair, the NFT bonanza is long past on planet dyne too. Instead of blaming themselves or others for some Internetโ€™s weird choices in investment of their life-savings, many dynes have moved on to blame it all on the furniture instead. Chaos Communication Champs It is a highly sought after stage in a dyneโ€™s life to attend the Chaos Communication Camp. So it is nothing but normal that the dynes that get to go, share images and videos with the dynes that canโ€™t. This yearโ€™s edition is no exception. In fact some dynes are meeting up and collectively entered their greatest form of Devuanistas! About time! They immediately got to work with a Daedalus Pi and a string of DMX stage-lights to guarantee good mood at the Devuan after-party! Talk about redundant efficiency! plentyn & vortex discussed further Devuan events and meetups, with a potential Devuan presence at fosdem next February. There was even some discussion about a small batch of Devuan swag, but youโ€™ll have to stay tuned until it passes the council of the wise ones. What we can reveal to you today, is that this event established for a fact that Lemons enjoy tattoos, and that they have excellent taste in motives. 0:00 0:31 1ร— Holidays on Planet Dyne Episode 33 unfolds during holidays. If you donโ€™t know what Holidays are, think of it as a weekend with many days. This means that dynes, who are usually found hacking, are hacking on something else. And also they share a lot of incredibly interesting content. One corner that never stops though, is Zenroom. The dynes over there make an opportunity of the moment. Since the other dynes have to paused to reflect, Zenroom dynes submit a poll. They query everyone on which webinar they would most like to see. 4 options are submitted. Zenswarm blockchain oracle: call a generic EVM smart contract BBS (zero knowledge proofs) - examples in apiroom.net PVSS (Publicly Verifiable Secret Sharing) - examples in apiroom.net Starters/Signroom/Didroom: signatures and identity wallet (see: https://fokbomb.solutions ) (Pssssstโ€ฆ The answer should be given at any moment now, come find out in the dedicated channel on Telegram, Discord or Matrix.) Meanwhile, all the other channels are accelerated: reports of beef in the Old Skool Warez Scene break out! Somebody from a neighboring planet has built a Turing-Complete CPU in Sunvox! Caturday is celebrated (a holiday strictly reserved for cats). Rumors that Dyne:Bolics has a telegram channel emerge. Incredibly powerful news from Asia hits the planet. Huge news even, it becomes possible the hear the floor trembling all the way from the hellish planet Wallstreet. The fluxus goes on, and on, and on, and on, and on and it is now crystal clear, that the best way for you to measure the depth, variety and relevance of what is happened on Planet Dyne Episode 33, is to become an integral part of the next Episode!

๐Ÿณ Breakfast of champions (Planet Dyne S2023E32)
by Dyne.org

Here's everything that happened in episode 32 of season 2023 of Planet Dyne. Who said Monday mornings can't be thrilling? In the last episode, some dynes resurrected the mailing list and it was possible to hear the chanting through the firewall. The spam machine was getting hot, dropping links like a b52 with a paint-job. It could explain why you are here now, dyne. But what matters is that it's good to see you! This spot has been kept warm for you. Make yourself comfy! One dyne with a smooth but quite funny voice is reaching for you: "WB! what's bussin? Seen anything that made you want to hack lately?" Encyclopedia Paywalls, paywalls, paywalls. One dyne feeds everyone with a paywall. Nobody gets angry because it can happen. Itโ€™s no dyneโ€™s fault if some website decides to enshittify itself. Luckily a snippet is quickly pirated for every dyneโ€™s participation. "Wikipedia has simply become crib notes for the establishment, at least for any topic remotely political. And even Larry Sanger, one of the two co-founders of Wikipedia in 2001, who coined the name, agrees, saying his creation had โ€œbecome an establishment mouthpieceโ€. โ€” The Australian Younger dynes find out that maybe there was a reason why teachers warned against using Wikipedia as an information source for writing school projects. Could also be because the mainstream still doesn't understand the religious virtues of copy-pastaโ€ฆ Wikipedia remains enjoyable for many things, but in some topics well known by dynes, it can look a bit shabby. Even wrong. Some chapters of Wikipedia are definitely monitored by groups that do not have the purest intentions. Monitored very closely at that. Sometimes the wisdom of the crowds is not very wise. If it was, would there really be a page for the Hawaiian Pizza? And why does Wikipedia detect mobile devices and redirects them to the mobile version, but doesn't detect desktops to redirect back? SLM (Smol Language Models) Dynes are smol language models contained inside a bag of meat. Individually they work OK, but together they shine. This might sound trivial, but it explains why this opinion piece by Pablo Chavez resonates in some dynes. The world is full of competition, but where is the collaboration? Mood gets a bit gloomydoomy, but a dyne can cope. After all, being a space punk has its percs at times. Plus, the dynes over at the Zenroom chat break the news that forkbomb has a new website. And itโ€™s looking like amazing bizniz! Also there's a lot of potential fun packed in the Large Language Models. Like feedback loops! Has anyone actually taken the output of any of the LLMs and just run output to input to output to input over and over, like those xerox art projects, where you end up with a sheet of gray noise? Will LLMs will create the equiv. of Drexler's "gray goo", but in text? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gray_goo โ€” @tomjennings@tldr.nettime.org Zapoy in CCCamp Do dynes dream of electric sheep? Maybe sometimes. But we know for sure that many dream about going to CCCamp. One lucky dyne is actually going to hold a workshop about name, autonomy and innovative ways with dynamic sig(0) keypairs for secure DNSSEC updates. Theyโ€™re most likely going to connect with some wise ones from Devuan and maybe you? Another dyne that is going too, is looking into holding a Zenroom workshop. This sparks a conversation about artificially generated natural language. You see, albeit Virtual, Zenroom is a mad juicy machine built by dynes. And because dynes care about dynes (including those who can't code), they built this virtual machine so that you can tell it what to do, WITHOUT all the funky computer characters and stuff. See this snippet of Zencode for reference (Zencode is slang for "Speak nerdy to me"): Scenario 'ecdh': Encrypt a message with the password Given that I have a 'string' named 'password' Given that I have a 'string' named 'header' Given that I have a 'string' named 'message' When I encrypt the secret message 'message' with 'password' Then print the 'secret message' Zenroom can read LUA but it likes when you Zencode it. Seeing how the robot-overlord can now write natural language too, wouldn't it be cool to let it lose on the dataset of examples written in Zencode? The dynes then disappeared from the chat, so it is likely that some hacking went down. But before leaving they put out a reminder: Zencode might be something easy to write for an AI, but what dynes really love about it is the determinism and also that human dynes can easily review it. One day, perhaps, the robot and dynes will communicate on the same dimensional level. And there will peace upon the galaxy. And the bonfires will be epic! 808 day By now itโ€™s only Tuesday (in the saga of course, relax! If you are unsure what day it is while reading this, here's a very useful tool). Low and behold: Itโ€™s also outernational 808 day! This means that Roland, some synthesizer dude with many birthdays, is celebrated. Some dynes prefer to celebrate the 1st of January, others are looking forward to the 9th of September. But everyone agrees that Roland makes kick-ass music machines. He certainly did not forget to put a replication limiting code to his synthesizers: the scarcity of 303s these days has led them to cost an arm and a half! Music on the other hand is cheap. At least in terms of Fiat currencies. It's cheap, but just like electronic waste, it's precious! In the last episode, dynes were a little reserved about what they were currently listening too. But that's OK, it's possible to take the experimental path instead and discover how GNU/HURD is striking back. The article confirms that it's 2023 and IRC is still the best option for chatting. Many dynes agree, even if most of them rarely log in to irc.dyne.org anymore. But that's a detail right now, because the dynes in Dark.fi have modified ircd to be encrypted and peer-to-peer. Only drawback is that it needs to run an ircd on each client, because e2ee is between daemons. Can it get more futuristic than this? Probably next episode, yes. Whip it like cream! 0:00 0:00 1ร— One dyne comes in handy with DIY whips. It's never too late to crack a supersonic boom at the dystopian state of digital identity in some nations. How would Indiana Jones deal with corporations nesting in the space of dynes' identity? Being a colonialist looter, he would probably do what he does best: steal all the base. Maybe if the handle of the whip is built with a base-ball bat it's easier to kick some corporate ass? A sovereign solution is overdue. Although to be fair, many dynes have been working overtime to define an interoperable and customizable standard for DID. Off The Meds by Off The Meds Things are still salvageable. If you embrace the dyne in you and participate in the next episode, who knows what could be achieved! Grandiosity for sure, dyne! Dog days Episode 32 unfolded in August, which is known as "Dog Days" in the northern hemisphere. Itโ€™s hella hot, so everything rots. But no bitrot happening on planet dyne. Instead it's time to clean up the infra. Some testing machines for Interfacer needs to go. But that's fine. Production machine is out on the world wild web already. Although chances are the Interfacer is still a secret to you. Would Keanu settle it with pinball? It remains unclear, but there's near consensus among dynes that Keanu is a worthy opponent to the church of emacs. It's likely he would use a font that contains the character "ร–" if he needed to anyways. There's a time for everything The now is volatile, but potentially a good moment to contemplate details. Corporate consolidation is one such detail: it's here, it's happening, but not obvious to everyone. Then again, the brands consolidate, but keep their name and logos, as if there was diversity. This creates an opportunity for one of the smallest dynes to generate political agitation through conceptual amalgamation. Naturally no one actually gets triggered. This corner of the internet is old enough now. Nice try though. Tactics & Practice Aksioma, a neighboring planet of dyne, releases a podcast! This is ground for celebration. Also it's Friday! Most dynes stop hacking to start hacking on something else for the weekend. But the podcast leave ripples. Tactics and practice of surveillance in the digitization discourse of the OECD is being transformed. A brief genealogy is shared. Federated breakfast on the beach The weekend gets wild. It's almost hard to follow. Ranging from dumpster diving to Bonfire releasing version 0.9.6, via Bluesky Federation Architecture, Graffiti art and desert islands to die for. DEFCON 31 is live revealing Veilid, an open-source, peer-to-peer, mobile-first networked application framework. It is conceptually similar to IPFS + Tor, but faster and designed from the ground-up to provide all services to dynes over a privately routed network. The network also enables dynes to develop distributed applications without a 'blockchain' or a 'transactional layer' at their base. Veilid can be included as part of dyne-facing applications or run as a standalone robot for power dynes who wish to help build the network.

Or as Aral Balkan puts it: It blows my mind that itโ€™s 2023 and we still canโ€™t have an anchor or a form carry out an HTTP PUT or DELETE request without using a library like htmx. But Web DRM? Sure, weโ€™re working on that! *smh* #web #dev #hypermedia #html #http โ€” @aral@mastodon.ar.al One dyne complains about a Voltaire book not being downloadable on the archive.org, only loanable for 14 days. What is going on? The discussion moves on to denial by design and Data Access Rights in Encrypted Infrastructures. ๐Ÿ‘พ User-submitted Vs. Authority-submitted feedback, round 1 A debate ensues regarding stats on social media. Thereโ€™s a love hate relationship to them. Stats can be used in many ways. But no dyne is oblivious to the grip of the Coporate Networks' iron fist around them. Maybe Zero-knowledge is the key? If ZK-proofs get to a usability point where a dyne can see reviews from their circle without providing who exactly for their privacy, the Internet could become even more beautiful. As usual there are as many fragrances of opinions as there are dynes, but everyone hates spam (unless of course the spam isnโ€™t spam) so some degrees of filtering is most likely desired. Dynes just wish these filters were the oposite of a black-box. ๐ŸŽ‰ Milestone Planet dyne has a fediverse outlet that has finally crossed the 300 user threshold. It's a smol step of a dyne, but giant celebration for planet dyne. This is the type of stats a dynes enjoy, some of them anyways! ๐Ÿซ  Favicon Controversy A website boy changes the favicon and <title> tag on their wildly popular website. The icon and name is a blatant rip off of the X Window system. Ripping stuff off is trending on the interwebz. Which is not a problem per se for dynes, it's the fact the the hipster-rippers don't share alike that is bothersome. In the hopes of creating a super intelligent machine, some robot-overlords are ripping off texts that many dynes have contributed to. Dynes generally chose their masters and gods (if any), so the prospect of being leveraged as a food for robots is entertaining no one. But on the bright side it appears that, for a robot overlord, writings produced by dynes have the same level of deliciousness as the writings of the Vatican and NASA! (Source to be determined). ๐ŸŽน MIDI-Age Crisis MIDI is 40 years this year! Many dynes enjoy using it. Some even swear by the giant spaghetti monster that it is the best protocole in the galaxy: such reliabilty, very Techno music, glory to MIDI! But 40 years really? Where did the time beam itself? One dyne decides that some meatbag-renovation is overdue and immediately proceeds to break a legย for good luck. Age is in the head and the dance anyways. Or so would the very telling and precise anecdotal data suggest. ๐Ÿ“ผ Frei0r and Kdenlive A new dyne tunes into the Frei0r discussion via Discord, appealed by the amazing video filter collection. They are wondering how to incorporate Frei0r into Kdenlive, a FOSS video sequence editor. Turns out that Kdenlive is so amazing that it ships official pre-builds with Frei0r already included. How cool is that? Did you know that Frei0r has a suit of filters for 360 (VR) video? Itโ€™s sweetissimo and you should try them today! ๐Ÿ™Š Quotes Macintosh isnโ€™t very popular among dynes. However, one dyne cites Working Steve, (some marketing person that used to work at Macintosh). Hereโ€™s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. Theyโ€™re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you canโ€™t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward. Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song thatโ€™s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels? While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. โ€” Steve Jobs Working Steve gets a free pass on this one; itโ€™s beautiful and the beatnik feel of the quote is strong. But it creates a good opportunity for dynes to remember that even douchebags can say interesting stuff at times and that quotes can be treacherous. Always look for context, fellow dyne! You will own nothing, and you will be happy โ€” Siddhartha Gautama AKA Buddah (/s) ๐Ÿ›๏ธ The system One dyne finds the near perfect system. Turns out it was under every dyneโ€™s nose the whole time and is called the โ€œSoundsystemโ€. Also by now it is Friday on planet Dyne and these news are coming in with prefect timing. ๐Ÿช… End of the weak! As every dyne goes from hacking to hacking on something else, we are invited to take a look at the Local First Manifesto. It creates a big splash. This is something many dynes have also been working on for at least 2 decades but never really gained so much visibility... A Saturday celebration is given at the prospects that CRDTโ€™s may be the next hype. That's all for this recap of Planet Dyne the Think & Do tank! Season 2023, Episode 31.

Open Source at the core of Europe: the Cyber Resilience Act
by Dyne.org

This weekโ€™s news is that The European Parliament has approved the European Cyber Resilience Act, and I believe it to be good news for us free and open-source developers. A lot was said prior to its approval, but much of it was dramatic and unhelpful in focusing on the positive aspects of this effort by the European Commission. Understanding the Actโ€™s Core Points The Act aims to improve the EUโ€™s ability to prevent and respond to cyber-attacks in a coordinated way. This is very important as cyber-attacks are the first line of contemporary warfare: Ukraine may be considered the first conventional cyberwar in the history of mankind, as our fellow Nicolas Brien argues. As much as I donโ€™t like war and do not want this to happen, reality must be faced, and a coherent strategy must be chosen. As the title of this act suggests, resiliency is the way for Europe, and it is a wise choice that helps improve the synergy between member states. Delving into its text, I understood that, at its heart, the European Cyber Resilience Act is not simply about defence but also about fostering a fair environment for the digital industry dealing with data, information, and knowledge. It urges Member States to share information on cyber threats and promotes a collaborative approach to cybersecurity. It envisions a united front against cyber adversaries, where knowledge is power. A Victory for Open Source The inclusion of Open Source development in the Act is a significant win. Our model has long been overlooked in Europe, yet it is a potential powerhouse: it is well demonstrated that with our development methodology, we foster innovation, collaboration, and transparency. Open source software is a key enabler of innovation and economic growth. By promoting its use and development, the Cyber Resilience Act will help to ensure that Europe remains at the forefront of the digital revolution. - Neelie Kroes The actโ€™s recognition of the importance of open-source is a groundbreaking moment in Europeโ€™s digital history. In the USA, it has been fully assimilated for more than a decade, and businesses have shown the ability to build value around it. In the EU, however, there is still a lot of potential to be exploited, there is room to grow, but we are limited by cultural norms and business practices. Now the European Commission recognizes the model of free/open source software, open and collaborative, as a way to build the much-desired European digital sovereignty, as well to face mission-critical tasks. Silver lining the mega-corporations Most vocal criticism of the act came from open-source leaning mega-foundations which, today, hold the stewardship position of large-scale software stacks mostly built in the USA during the past 20 years. The best round-up of the criticism is published by the Apache foundation and it helps highlight the most salient point: how we determine when software becomes a liability for societies and needs to be regulated by the norms of the Cyber Resiliency Act. The act differentiates grass-root development and research from software exploited commercially at a large scale, even if both can be free and open source. It establishes that all norms need to be applied when the decision-making process on algorithms, what I call the algorithmic sovereignty, is de-facto in the hands of individuals working for commercial entities. I applaud this choice of the European Commission because today, after decades of open-source institutionalization by our colleagues in the USA, the open-source bazaar is dominated by a conundrum of mega-corporations (GAFAM) funding mega-foundations (Apache, Linux, Mozillaโ€ฆ) to dominate most choices made about software. Europeโ€™s act establishes that it doesnโ€™t matter what kind of institution takes the stewardship of software: it is not made by a community when a โ€œbenevolent dictatorโ€ steers decisions while being paid by a company exploiting the commercial values of software. Such individuals obviously listen to the requirements of their own constituency, to the point of becoming unresponsive to the needs and concerns of the community. Indeed, many of us who have embraced GNU/Linux in our infrastructure often feel like unwitting participants in a high-stakes tech experiment. Itโ€™s a sentiment Iโ€™ve dived deep into, particularly when exploring the complex scenarios of systemd, where a vulnerable software was knowingly deployed at large. Lead or follow? this decadeโ€™s dilemma for GNU/Linux based ICT industry Reflections on the present turning point for us users and developers of GNU/Linux based systems. Context The major event I like to start from is the landmark acquisition of RedHat by IBM for 36 whopping billions of dollars in 2019. This event shall not go unobserved when debating about News From DyneHackaday Let us also consider that there are already thousand of companies out there adding barely 5% of code to huge community built software stacks. When these companies succeed in their plans to profit they just try to buy the control on the 95% of open-source commons by buying people in, else they fail to control what they depend upon. Solutions to dependencies are facilitated by open-source, but it will be not enough without the sort of norms this act states to regulate liabilities. The Heart of the Act The Act requires EU member states to establish a national cyber resilience strategy. One of the key points of the Cyber Resilience Act is the establishment of a European Cybersecurity Certification Framework. This framework will provide a common set of standards and certifications for all ICT products, services, and processes across the EU. This will help to ensure that all products and services meet a minimum level of cybersecurity and data protection requirements. Certifications have been a driving business model for the growth of big open-source companies such as Red Hat and its parameters and focus have been established by the biggest market players without taking into account the validation of the academic and public sectors. I like to think that in Europe we do this in a different way and this act is another big step in this direction. The Commission aims to lead Europeโ€™s digital transition by example. With the new rules, the Commission will bring significant value to companies, start-ups, innovators, citizens and public administrations by open sourcing its software solutions. This decision will also spur innovation, thanks to publicly available Commission code. - Mariya Gabriel The beauty of the Free and Open Source model lies in its openness and collaboration. Itโ€™s not just about creating software but also fostering a community of innovation and learning, opening the field for European small and medium enterprises to play along clear rules and to work for the transparency and quality of systems. This is the blueprint for the much-desired European digital sovereignty. Community driven software development There is a silently winning approach in the field of Information and Communication Technologies today. It is hard to individuate where this approach wins, because of the enormous amount of marketing communication flooding our screens. News From DyneMetadecidimโ€™s official logo Forkbomb and Dyne.org: Pioneering Open Source At the Dyne.org foundation and our new sister the Forkbomb company, weโ€™re proud to be pioneering this change. We work tirelessly with professional-grade open-source software, creating technology that is by the people, for the people. Dyne.org, a decade in perspective Some kind souls are blessing Europe โ€” the souls of reality hackers and change agents. In this post Iโ€™ll talk about our international foundation based in Amsterdam, Dyne.org, and share an update that is long-due for all the fellow travelers who have met us along the paths โ€” Die Holzwege. News From DyneMihaela We embrace this new era of digital growth for Europe, confident that the liabilities we have always faced and taken responsibility for will be dealt with in a cooperative and faithful environment. Reflecting on our successful and outstanding decade-long journey working for the European Commission, our biggest problem has always been of cultural nature: the lack of understanding of the importance of the free and open-source software movement by the industry. This problem has never been and will never be solved by the industry or a proxy institution but by the sort of cultural and political shift Europe is promoting today.
