Warm-up to the first interoperability hackathon

At the c-base, a few hacktivist anticipated the upcoming hackathon: from mobilize.berlin, librevents and mobilizon-reshare.

Data liberation and the Fediverse

Tools and strategy to reclaim culture beyond GAFAM * * * A creative way to force interoperability because regulations take ages in doing it 😆 Featuring: ( tracking.exposed ) ( libr.events ) ( mobilizon.berlin ), and the documentary ( DISAPPEAR ) https://joinmobilizon.org . The Critical Mass problem https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metcalfe's_law . The law has often been illustrated using the example of fax machines: a single fax machine is useless, but the value of every fax machine increases with the total number of fax machines in the network , because the total number of people with whom each user may send and receive documents increases.

Version 0.1

The first attempt to implement librevents was to be a prototype that would allow us to test the hypothesis. A sequence of small scripts were developed that are part of a package called mobilizon-poster. These scripts handle file containing events and support the user in posting them to mobilizon. The librevents package instead, accesses Facebook to collect the most recent events and producing file compatible with the aforementioned scripts.

On interoperability

Interoperability is a property that frees us, gives us independence, and allows networks to grow by pandering to the needs of communities. It is not always a right, but this tool does not want to implement a law, it wants to enable Internet users to achieve interoperability regardless of what companies want, because that is how the Internet is supposed to work.
