Friendica

Liberty on the Rocks Huntsville now has it’s own Friendica server, thanks to Chris Case. Friendica is an alternative to certain “creepy” social networks that are a little too cozy with the state. It is decentralized, and users have total control over what data is shared and what isn’t.

The Friendica Project is a world-wide consortium of software developers creating decentralised social platforms and technology for the coming post-Facebook world. We aren’t as flashy and well known as some of the other projects working on a decentralised/federated social web, but we’ve been quietly working behind the scenes to provide the most reliable, full-featured, and extensible alternative to the monolithic providers.

You can create an account at http://social.huntsvilleliberty.com. All new members must be approved by one of the admins, but if you’re a member of the group, or are a part of the liberty movement, I will approve your account as soon as I see it. Keep in mind, we just put this system up this week, so there will be some bugs and issues to work out.

Chris and I will give more details on this project at tonight’s meeting and answer any questions you have about security.

Event Info

Last Liberty on the Rocks before the Mayan Fiscal Cliff

mayanfiscalcliff

We are meeting a week early this month so everyone will have time to prepare for the obvious doom on the 21st.  Prepare for a night of lively discussion of current political, economic, philosophical issues, and remember that after the apocalypse, be it Mayan or Fiscal, 2 for 1 beers may no longer be a certainty.  So come on out to Mafiaoza’s on 12th Ave S on Thursday, December 13th.  As always Liberty on the Rocks starts at 5:30pm and goes until they ask us to leave.
