Tailscale Inc. is a software company with a freemium business model based in Toronto, Canada. It was founded in 2019 and is headquartered in Ontario. Tailscale provides an open-source software defined mesh virtual private network (mesh network VPN) software and a web-based management service.[a][1][2] The company provides a zero config mesh VPN service under the same name.... The open-source software acts in combination with the management service to establish peer-to-peer or relayed VPN communication with other clients using the Wireguard protocol. If the software fails to establish direct communication it falls back to using relays provided by the company. The IPv4 addresses given to clients are in the Carrier-grade NAT reserved space. This was chosen to avoid interference with existing networks. The configuration also allows routing of traffic to networks behind the client on some clients. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tailscale https://tailscale.com/

Fediverse is a portmanteau of "federation" and "universe". It is a common, informal name for a somewhat broad federation of social network servers whose main purpose is microblogging, the sharing of short, public messages. By running social network software that supports a standard set of protocols called ActivityPub, independently run servers can connect to the Fediverse,[1] allowing its users to follow and receive short messages from each other, regardless of which particular ActivityPub server implementation they are running. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fediverse See esp Mastodon.

term from Clay Shirky (2004): custom-built software for a small group (Creative Network) - doesn't have to worry about "scalability" of software, nor of community model (e.g. rules can be enforced in the Real World). And can be finely tuned to specific Context/requirements. Strong Ties? (more)

BetaWorks (John Borthwick is hosting an event today in NYC: From the documenting software on the earliest PCs to modern tools like Roam Research, software's paramount value has been in providing people leverage in not just their productivity, but also their thinking. For this edition of Render, we'll be exploring new advancements in the space with some of its brightest entrepreneurs and contributors. Across two days of programming, we'll be taking tours of new projects, learning about knowledge graphs as public resources, discussing recent advancements in AI and ML in understanding semantic meaning of ideas, and of course sharing with one another how we use these tools ourselves. Join us as we explore the past, present, and future of tools for thinking. (Tools for Thought) I'll attend virtually. (more)

Zvi Mowshowitz: Covid-19 9/15/22: Permanent Normal. the CDC is going to be using the term ‘vaccine-derived Poliovirus’ and seriously, what the hell are you thinking, yes I know it is technically right but wow I do not want to hear the CDC talk about boosting public confidence in anything ever again.

Zvi Mowshowitz: Covid-19 9/01/22 : Meet the New Booster. We will soon have a new, updated covid vaccine booster shot only eight or so months behind schedule. Given only 30% of America is boosted even once, not many people will accept this kind and generous (if rather late) offer. (more)
