Hi there!

I never got really used to Discourse, but I did it and registered :slight_smile: I hope I am doing right posting my introduction here.

I am Georg, living in Leipzig/Germany. My pronouns are he/him.

In the fediverse you can find me at @gcrkrause. I am admin at lediver.se, maintainer at Funkwhale and involved in some other projects not related to the fediverse :wink:

I am a white tech guy and therefore the group who is able to use the fediverse without any barriers. This makes me a really like person, but I really hope there is a way I can help to make the fediverse a more welcoming and diverse space. Thats mostly why I am joining here, to have discussions how to solve these problems on a technical but also social level, maybe with more time and calm then possible at Mastodon.

Thanks for the effort to host this forum :slight_smile:

Welcome @gcrkrause and @aschrijver.

Hey cool, I didn’t know you where involved with Funkwhale Georg.
Making the Fediverse a more welcoming and diverse space is exactly the kind of discussion I created this forum for. I hope we can make that true.

Arnold feel free to add your lists to our lists once you are able to edit wikis. I love lists. :slight_smile:

One project I created is called delightful. It is similar to awesome project on Github, but only for FOSS, Open Science and Open Data related resources. With it anyone can add a curated list of resources on their topic of interest, and on their code forge location of choice (gitlab, github, gitea, self-hosted, etc.). I invite anyone to create their own sub-lists (I maintain a bunch of them myself).

Another list is Awesome Humane Tech (yes, you guessed it, a sub-list of awesome project :smile: )

I were involved a little bit since sometimes last year, but I got more involved early this year. Since Agate stepped down nobody was really taking care of the project and now we are on a good way to making the project sustainable. But I am really just connecting the dots and a lot of work is done by different community members.

Hey I’m James. he/him
I already feel very welcome in this forum.
I like @discobot who greeted me.

I also like gardening and DIY stuff. :house_with_garden:

Hi,
I’m Elli. I’m also a trans woman. she/her

Arnold I think you used the wrong link. It should be https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/

I’ve been at the SocialHub, but it was too techy for me, so I hope this forum will be more user oriented.

Welcom Elli :slight_smile:

I think your hopes will come true.

Thank you, Elli. It is fixed now :slight_smile:

You are right about SocialHub being more technical, though we have a non-technical brainstorming area on Lemmy as a companion, called Fediverse Futures. Have a look at this topic about possible collab between our two communities: Positioning and purpose of Fediverse Town community forum.

Hi,
I’m @LeftyLucy.

First of all: Thank you Paula for everything you do! I’m following you since I joined Mastodon in January and I don’t know anybody who does more for the Fediverse. And I love your guides and lists.

Now about me. I’m a leftist, as my username suggests. To be more exact, I’m an anarchosocialist. I hate people who discriminate.
Oh and I knit and stitch.

Very welcome Lucy.
Now I’m blushing :blush:.

So i think now it is time for me to introduce myself.

I am called Proviant (he/him, she/her) and I am a activist in the climate justice movement and also active in antifascist groups. I am living in Germany and I am very interested in decentralised and secure OpenSource Projects.

You can find me at the moment in the Fediverse as @proviant@seizemeans.com (I will update this in the future, if I make new accounts) and maintain a couple of relayed accounts. I am also working with some other people on the Fediblock Blocklist.

I am looking forward to read and discuss many interesting things!
