What if any options are there for running Federated social networking tools on or through #OpenWRT or related router systems on a single-user or household basis?

I'm trying to coordinate and gather information for #googleplus (and other) users looking to migrate to Fediverse platforms, and I'm aware that OpenWRT, #Turris (I have a #TurrisOmnia), and several other router platforms can run services, mostly #NextCloud that I'm aware.

Is #diaspora itself viable on these systems? I'm thinking that may be ambitious.

If not, what are considerations for running a small node through a router? Primary considerations would be capacity planning, bandwidth and load impacts, and configuration and security considerations.

Hoping there's some expertise here.

Diaspora is going to need more pods


Based on @Di Cleverly and @David Thiery 's experience and estimates, Pluspora is not going to be sufficient or sustainable for the anticipated G+ exodus.

They see 20-40 pods of 1,000 - 2,000 users each being likely needed. Not necessarily all at once, but this is something that should be getting considered.

Operating costs are on the order of $25/mo using cloud services, or about $0.025/user-month, give or take. A quarter per year.

This works out to roughly 50,000 users migrating over. My previous estimates of user activity, backed by independent analysis by Stone Temple Consulting suggested 4-6 million publicly-participating G+ users as of January - March, 2015. The active core of that may have been as low as 50-100k, which seems generally sensible based on other indications.

The numbers are much squishier than I'd like but at least establish a starting point.

There are other alternatives, such as protocols / servers which have lower per-user overhead, but we have no data on this presently.

G+ Migration Post Mortem: What went well, what went poorly, what are lessons learned?


We're now well into the post-Google+ period, and I'd like to open up the question of how things went.

I've got my own mental list of things which went well or poorly in the process, of the latter, many of which involve myself.

This is open to contributions and discussion.

Discussion here or at PlexodusReddit.

There's a Plexodus Wiki Post Mortem page open as well.

ArchiveTeam uploading of Google+ content to the Internet Archive


So it turns out that fetching data from Google was only part of the archiving process -- the other is sending that to the Internet Archive. That's what this image (and link to the tracker) shows. About 2/3 complete by my eyeballing here:

https://atdash.meo.ws/d/3-kDz8Emz/telegraf-aggregated-stats?orgId=1&fullscreen&panelId=9&from=now-15d&to=now

(That's going to be relatively current for the next day or so, given it's a relative date offset of about 15 days.)

I've also heard that the Communities fetch may not have been as successful as hoped. Again, that was intended to capture effectively the paginated views of G+ communities, though it was an additional goal, and started late in the process. The contents should (mostly) make their way to the Archive, but it may not be easy to navigate by Community there.

And there is an Archive Team Google+ Archive Collection at the Internet Archive which makes navigation a bit cleaner: https://archive.org/details/archiveteam_googleplus

Programming vs. Software Engineering? Or why I think that "Software Development" best captures the essence of what we do.

Friends+Me Google+ Exporter can still access images & video


If you're like me, well, first, my deepest sympathies, but you've used F+MGE to capture your posts and other text content, but were saving images for later, only to be caught by the Google+ shutdown.

Turns out that googleusercontent.com is still serving up those images (this may be data that's harder for Google to remove), so you can still fetch media content through Google+ Exporter.

Hop on that now if you're interested.

A set of 604 curated "locally notable" G+ profiles


https://pastebin.com/raw/0Wh4BJah

This list comes from a set of contributions from +Eli Fennell's listing here:

https://plus.google.com/110619855408549015935/posts/XrZkNKam1Jo

Though not strictly-speaking "signal flares", I've submitted the profiles to the Internet Archive's Wayback machine (scripted via the "Save" URL) -- that part took about 90 seconds. Sorting out grabbing all the profile names and IDs from G+ HTML (and wrestling with local systems) a couple of hours.

A really good reason to pin a #signalflare post is that that pinned post WILL SHOW UP IN THE INTERNET ARCHIVE when saved.

(I'll schedule another save or few of this through April 2.)

This'd be a good set of folks to keep tabs on and through whom to find others.

I'll be adding this to the #PlexodusWiki Notable Names Database (NNDB) ... eventually:
