For this , I want to thank everyone who still wants to own their data. Those who aren't swayed by seemingly valid and effective technical solutions designed solely to entrap. To those who don't believe in the flashy pages created by web giants that promise better results than others and sometimes sabotage competitors to create this illusion. Or embrace and extinguish the competition.

When all our data and activities are chained to the servers and infrastructures of a few entities, what will we truly own?

On the spare time, going on with the article. Currently fixing the paragraph named "To encrypt or not to encrypt?"

I'm writing (and will publish on my blog in the next few days) an article about self-hosting some services. In this case, on FreeBSD, but I will also use other BSDs. The ultimate goal is to promote what I often advocate with the hashtag , which is always to remain the owners of our data.

This first article will be a part of a series on the same topic, but there will be more with different technologies and solutions.

Stay tuned!

I'm reading that Meta's social networks are experiencing accessibility issues across Europe.
The Fediverse is open for (not) business, as usual.

Long live decentralization!

@corley Exactly. I've been advocating the philosophy for more than 20 years.

A few months ago, I persuaded a client to abandon an external cloud system and use Nextcloud on their own server instead. Powered by FreeBSD and ZFS, it has already demonstrated its strengths on a couple of occasions (such as in the case of a snapshot rollback). This morning, they expressed the desire to abandon the various WhatsApp groups they use for coordination and to use a solution "all on their servers." I was inspired and quickly installed both an ejabberd and a Matrix server (Synapse) - which they will probably prefer, according to the latest news they sent me - on two FreeBSD jails.

Today, we have the awareness and experience of what it means to give our data to large companies, completely losing control over it. We have the tools, so why not use them?
And I'm really happy when someone like them, thanks to their willingness to try "new" solutions, realizes the alternatives to the colorful, advertised, warmly recommended (by salespeople) "proprietary" solutions.

It's kind of mind boggling that there are millionaire owned social media sites incorporating algorithms designed to keep us at each other's throats for their profit and amusement, and people are on them willingly.
