monkeystew.social is shutting down

29 August 2017 social

I’ve decided to retire my Friendica instance at monkeystew.social. Mostly to free up some resources from my server and have one less thing to worry about and manage. I’m not going away from the social web, just coming at it a little differently now.

If you’re following me from Diaspora, I’ve dusted off my old profile:

thrrgilag@shrekislove.us

If you’re following me from GNU social or Mastodon:

mastodon.social/@thrrgilag

If you’re following me from Friendica you can continue to follow me at either of the two profiles linked above.

I also have a couple of other micro blog feeds that you can follow me at:

https://monkeystew.org
https://pnut.io/@thrrgilag
https://micro.blog/thrrgilag

Of course as always I’m available on chat as well:

matrix => @thrrgilag:monkeystew.net
xmpp => thrrgilag@monkeystew.net


Support Matrix!

This has been one of my favorite projects this year. If you haven’t checked it out yet head over to matrix.org and take a peek. It’s grown a lot over the last year but now faces funding challenges. If you are able to help support the core team. Patreon, Liberapay, and bitcoin details are in the linked blog post.

A Call to Arms: Supporting Matrix!

TL;DR: if you like Matrix (and especially if you’re building stuff on it), please support us via Patreon or Liberapay to keep the core team able to work on it full-time, otherwise the project is going to be seriously impacted. And if you’re a company who is invested in Matrix (e.g. itching for Dendrite), please get in touch ASAP if you’d like to sponsor core development work from the team. And if you’re a philanthropic billionaire who believes in our ideals of decentralisation, encryption, and open communication as a basic human right – we’d love to hear from you too O:-)


Hmm… The one meeting I had on the schedule today is with someone who is out of the office. Perhaps I can sepnd this morning converting #coffee into code.

It looks like I might actually get to spend some time this weekend coding. At least I don’t have anything on my calendar that says otherwise. 😃
