With the GPL, for any binary that you distribute, you have to make the corresponding source code available. With reproducible builds (see: https://reproducible-builds.org/), it is possible to verify that the binary was indeed compiled from the available source code. All you have to do is to compile the source code yourself, and compare the resulting binary with the one distributed. For an example of this in practice, see guix's `challange` command.

With the AGPL, if you run a service accessible through a network, you have to make the corresponding source code to the service available to the users. But is there a way for the user to verify that the service provided corresponds to the source code available? I can't think of any situation where the service couldn't just simply lie about what it is.

I believe this to be very important in today's climate where every megacorporation tries to paint themselves to be great supporters of "open source" and many of our organizations are funded by their "generous donations". But the problem is that they don't give a shit about software freedom. Take Visual Studio Code for example. Microsoft used to advertise it as being Open Source, and millions in good faith downloaded binaries of it. Until a careful eye noticed that the source code released as "Visual Studio Code" was different from the binaries released as "Visual Studio Code". In fact, the binaries even have their own license agreement that you have to accept to use them. After being called out on it, Microsoft modified their website and now Visual Studio Code only claims that it was "built on Open Source", as if that was something to be proud of. But the damage has already been done. I think Docker employed (or still employs) similar tricks. The problem is, pushover (so-called "permissive") licenses do not protect you from this trickery at all. With copyleft licenses, the source code of the binary has to be provided. But with pushover licenses, corporations can put some crippled version of their software on Github as bait, and distribute proprietary versions of it in binary form. This is why I think verifying source-to-binary correspondence, enabled by bootstrappable and reproducible builds, is so important.

There was this talk at LibrePlanet 2020 by someone from the Open Source Initiative(!) about some current practices that companies employ to appear as part of the Free Software movement without actually adhering to the principles of software freedom.

I wanted to make a somewhat niche imageboard but my friend dropped out of the developing due to depression and i am more of an idea/design/admin kinda of person than good programmer and it ended up being more work that i can handle, i've been admin/mod for forums back in the day but never really the coding guy so we kinda just shot down the domain.

Has any of you operated something like that? Or has a cool webspace? or want to do one with me

 No.1473

Have you thought of joining wirechan maybe?

 No.1474

>>1473
wirechan is in pretty good shape alreadythey got everything on point for the theme they're going for i think, i just wanted to make a image/textboard in a different theme that is not very popular with imageboard users, it was just an idea that i threw out with my friend and he said he would be down to make it but i wasn't supposed to be i guess.

Do you have a cool webspace fren?

 No.1475

Yeah, I have a small landing page for my ZNC and that stuff, plus my friends are working on a revival for an ib they had, plus another one has his own ib and I help them moderate it.

Have you ever dumpster dived and picked up any schway shit? I built my first 2 computers out of parts I found on street.

>>210Lucky! I would love to find some great parts in some dumpsters around here. But I live in a small redneck town where no one ever even got into computers yet now everyone has to have a damn smartphone.The only interesting find I've ever had in a dumpster is a nice bowling ball that I decided to throw off a building and let it roll into oncoming traffic just out of sheer boredom.

One of the most cyberpunk things I can think of are alternative intranets. The biggest one I know of is in Cuba, called SNET.
Info: https://media.ccc.de/v/34c3-8740-the_internet_in_cuba_a_story_of_community_resilience
There are also examples of this in the DPRK. And, most recently, Russia has been supposedly planning to cut itself off the global Internet (https://www.pcmag.com/news/371347/russia-is-about-to-disconnect-from-the-internet-what-that-m), although I very much doubt they will. I remember reading it wanted to do this in partnership with other BRICS countries, and make another "Internet" to counterbalance the West's influence and power on our current one, but there wasn't much interest from them.

Do you think things might still get worse in the near future?

 No.951

In the meantime, I suggest you guys start running LibreMesh (https://libremesh.org/) with cjdns (https://phillymesh.net/2016/04/21/cjdns-on-openwrt-part-3-installing-configuring-cjdns/), in case worst comes to worst.

Have you ever operated a chan?

What does it take, in terms of memory, CPU, bandwidth and disk space to run a chan? Let's suppose it's at wirechan's posting rate.

What software is best? Vichan? Lynxchan?

there is nothing wrong or extreme about the concept of "free speech"
allowing people to talk shit on your own physical property or website has nothing to do with free speech
forbidding other people to say something in general, by law or other measurements is something a modern free society should look down on
it's the most basic tools to expose and to stop an oppressive and/or evil government/institution

If you don't like what people say, have you ever tried going out of their way? There are a lot of people in the world, you don't need to try to be friends with everyone. And you will surely not make yourself very likeable if you run around trying to take away people's voice.

I think the more popular a platform becomes, the more it has to hold up the values of free speech, especially when your own country benefited from this concept for centuries. That's why people look down on how the owners of Twitter and Facebook are behaving.

"wirechan.org" is a smaller website and I think it's perfectly fine to have a couple of rules, to behave nicely
freedom of speech exists to allow people to express their ideas freely without giving anyone the ability to shut you up, just because his opinion differs from theirs

Only by hearing many _VERY_ different opinions, can a society come to a good and healthy consensus.
If half of the people aren't allowed to give their honest opinion, any consensus formed will be very shaky as if it would only stand on one leg.

A dedicated ip would probably cost more than a vps.

 No.1886

>>1878
You'll want a VPS (most unmanaged linux are barely $10 a month anyways) for stuff like FFmpeg to do webm thumbnailing or use php modules not included in regular shared hosting.
Sure you can use a shared server, but you'll have to make do with some limitations in the software.

 No.1887

>>1885
no one expects anyone selfhosting to have a static ip, isps only give em away with industry/office contracts (or sinfully expensive) and the like, self hosting pretty much always needs dynamic dns like from afraid

 No.1888

Running a small chan with 1 post a week (by me because no one else uses it) that I custom made in nodejs works fine on the cheapest vps I could find which is shared between like 3 other websites as well.

Assuming your chan is gonna be somewhat small you can probably just go with the cheapest $5 a month vps.

Apple announced that they will be using their own chips; I wonder how that will effect x86's monopoly on desktop computing.

 No.1525

>>1524
It probably won't. Macs already had compatibility issues with things made for PCs (e.g. Linux), so I doubt widening that gap further will change much. Then again, I tend to be continuously surprised at what kind of cues tech companies take from Apple. Like, it didn't surprise me at all when iPhone abandoned headphone jacks, but I was absolutely baffled when other phone companies followed suit.
If anything breaks the x86 monopoly, I really hope it's something open source like RISC-V and not just companies trying to copy Apple's dumb bullshit. Who am I kidding though, that's not gonna be the case.
