Hello @switchingsoftware. I came in peace and am looking for a more ethical and open source alternative to #Keybase. Show me what you have in back store! 😜

Hi @rob ,

I'm not aware of a single drop-in-replacement for 🤔 Here are some ideas:

💬 End-to-end-encrypted chat
- /
- with OMEMO encryption

🔒 Encrypted Storage
-
- maybe for some use cases

🔗 Linking keys to accounts
- Sorry, I'm inexperienced here 😅
- for PGP keys: Public PGP key servers
- for Mastodon: profile link to website with key infos + "rel=me" link

Gonna share your post for more feedback on this 🙂

Hi Fediverse 👋

the refurbished version of switching.software keeps evolving ... and I keep on immersing myself into it without posting updates on the progress 😅

I guess it's best to have a look for yourself 🙂

This preview gets updated regularly 🙃 Just like the main "todo list" here:

@switchingsoftware
What platforms would you suggest for wiki hosting? Including system admin service. And a solid, easy to use wiki content admin interface?

Also for website writing (and hosting), with tools as good as, say, Wix? And a reasonable though not extravagant selection of templates.

Hi @kensanata and @mike_hales 🙂

Sadly, I don't know any wiki hosting providers. 🙁 I only know of some software, that might be of interest:

📚
bookstackapp.com/

🌐
wiki.js.org/

I will boost it, maybe someone knows a provider for these (or similar) projects 💻

Hi Fediverse 👋

today, our site swiso.org joined the initiative to keep .org-domains non-profit.

We host our site on a .org domain. Furthermore, we heavily rely on services hosted on .org domains - as for example @codeberg

Please consider supporting the initiative by spreading the word or signing the letter:

Hi Fediverse 👋

as mentioned before, we are reorganizing the codebase of the website. If you are curious concerning the progress, I'm happy to share the current status:

pages.codeberg.org/swiso-en

Powered by @codeberg·s new static pages. Special thanks to supercell for migrating all the google-related pages. If you also want to participate, you can do so here:

There's a #Funkwhale app for Android now, called #Otter. It's still kind of in beta, but it looks really cool and has a lot of potential.

Really stoked about the potential this might have with Author profiles and podcast support! The Funkwhale project has those things on a roadmap for future development.
The albums view of Otter, a Fun…

Hi Fediverse,

@edi is asking for a FLOSS alternative for Amazon Wishlists, as we are heading towards Christmas 🎅

Does anyone have a suggestion? 🙂

Thanks @switchingsoftware for rebuilding the site! If you're out there anonymous switching.social creator, you rock, and we miss you.

@aral Hi, thanks for pointing out the ambiguity of my profile description concerning the person behind the new account. See my pinned post (the one I'm replying to here) for the whole background. 🤔

I will update my profile info as soon as I can - will take a few days though as I can't do this via app. 🙂

@Framasoft any alternative to Tresorit? Safe, privacy-concerned, E2E encryption, remote but accessible.

Any good alternative to Google groups ? It's for a friend of mine, @kaulian, who is looking to change the software used by the parents of his son's school. Maybe you know one @switchingsoftware ?

Hello #fediverse! I'm starting a Spanish version of @switchingsoftware 🤟

If you speak English and Spanish and want a more #privacy friendly and #opensource world consider giving the project a look 😇

Head over to our GitHub repo, share with friends and spread the world. let's help some hermanos out! 💪

Hi Fediverse 👋

let me tell you this: Thank you all for the feedback, wishes and support offers so far! I'm very optimistic that we will get this project continued together ⏩

Before the next big steps, I will take a break for a few weeks. So, might get a bit silent here. I'll try to visit once in a while but internet access could be rare sometimes 🏖

While I'm away, you may also have a look at @privacytools and their software section 📋

Hi Fediverse 👋

this is for everyone interested in supporting switching.software 🙂

Here is my proposal on how to reorganize and improve the codebase of the website:

codeberg.org/swiso-en/website/

I would really appreciate your feedback - comment right here or on the issue 🗨️

Also, who would like to join the effort? And don't worry, we will figure out the "how" together - soon after the proposal is community-approved 😁

Hi Fediverse 👋

let me sum up the situation around

Around September 20th, the original (anonymous) author of switching.social shut down its website and all related Social Media accounts, including mastodon 🤔

This info reached me (@tobias ) the next day via my German version @swisode .

As there hasn't been any sign of life since then, I restored the website and created this new account. Right now I'm out of spare time to work on it, but that'll change in a few weeks 🙂
