1. We follow another instance
2. We scan it's library
3. We import some tracks from it
4. We play those tracks from our own instance
You can't imagine how happy I am to see this actually working, after weeks working on the protocol/invisible stuff!
Thanks. We hope we will inspire and help (technically) others to launch similar initiatives so that the number of decentralized and federated service providers grows.
#deltachat This is worth a read:
@mikeao (I mean, for one thing, the source download links at easyinstall.citadel.org don't work over HTTPS…)
One alternative, to the FOSS social networks, like diaspora, friendica, and hubzilla (and of course mastodon ) is the citadel suite. It has an amazing pedigree, (like 30 years) so is not going away with the next fad or craze. It's rock solid, and has a small but friendly team who maintain and add to this great system.

(just noticed i spelt FOSS as floss :D . maybe we should all have a good digital floss? )
#deletefacebook Has anyone written about, or formed a view of the future, where 'we the public', live our digital social lives in privacy without being prey to too much corporate manipulation?
Things that come to mind:
# independant floss software systems/servers
# universal encryption
# a sensible way to fund free communications, and safe online social living
#deletefacebook, 'and' bring our friends and family out with us.
Just thinking now: Something i have thought about for a few years , and i am sure many have before me.
What would persuade my friends and family to ditch - firstly - Facebook?
I suppose we all need just one 'tech savvy' person in our immediate circle of friends. First to actually inform us of things like 'data mining', and loss of personal freedom, also to maybe run a social media server (mastodon, friendica, diaspora?) . Suggestions - on connecting all these circles of friends very welcome.
