I’m all for that!

I think the best thing we can do, is to organize. Not only internationally, but locally as well. To engage all kinds of people in digital issues.


I lost you at “let alone to have his pronouns respected”.

You disrespect somebody by refusing their identity and then you cry about being disrespected. In Norway we have a saying “den som er med på leken, må tåle steken”. Those who join the game, must accept the grilling.


Im not suggesting that the text to be translated should be posted to instances. That would break the right to privacy.

However, I think a fediverse could improve such offline tools that you are referencing as well improve translation tools that has access to the internet.

This could for example be done by having instances specifically designed to create dictionaries through collaboration, perhaps with a very specific theme. An instance could have an aim for creating definitions in mathematics, for children or for carpenters. A dictionary could then be generated from a set of instances.

These definitions could be designed to allow for automation of translation. Perhaps through use of functional definitions.


Love the idea! By the way, does humane tech have conferences? If so, I think it would be a great way to mobilize the lemmy community.




I dont know how this could be achieved, but I do think we will see amazing ideas as the fediverse cultivates.


No doubt its difficult, but we need to envision how to create translation tools that ensures the peoples independence.


Very interesting, but is it still under development?


Im interested in structuring information. So for example editing text, using spreadsheets or mindmapping.


Distraction free operating system

Are there any operating system designed to be as distraction free as possible? …


In long term, I think the fediverse can solve this issue with federated and interconnected tools. Each software putting emphasis on a different aspect of analysis of language and each instance aiming to map the undefined and discuss contraversies.

Dictionaries can be built up from a subsection of instances that focus on definitions. Perhaps have some kind of functional approach to definitions.

Translation instances could use these dictionaries actively to quicker find good translations.


Or that’s at least the impression I get from reading the comments here.



I’m kind of pissed off because I’ve been reading this for 3 minutes without having any idea what the project is about.


I think technology so far has had a negative impact on society. Both from an individualistic and from a societal perspective. Because of technology, inequality is increasing, we become more polarized, more lonly, feel disconnected, democracies are neglected and completely dependent on tech giants whom act in opposition to our common interests.


Im most curious about the private instance feature. That could be a great tool for organizations.


Ill be trying out Nextclouds photo hosting.


A million small instances > a few big instances

A good mentality for a blooming fediverse

We have yet to see the pioneers of the fediverse. Both in terms of development and culturally. But in order to ensure that these pioneers will flourish, we need to have the right mindset. A mindset that will ensure that our energy is spent as well as possible. …


Decentralized Single Sign-on

Using RSS to popularize decentralization

I want decentralized services to become mainstream, but it is understandable that people are hesitant. Signing up for new services takes some time and requires password management which many people doesn’t take as seriously as they should. Any pod could also be discontinued for various reasons. …
