Whats Your Status Net 2.0 (Updates like Identi.ca)


Published on

StatusNet is a hosted service for setting your status updates (aka, microblogging), is free software (licensed under the GNU AGPL), and is the software that powers the popular Autonomo.us Free Network Service, Identi.ca. This presentation looks broadly at these three parts of the StatusNet, how to setup YOUROWN.status.net, installing your own instance, and the company which supports the community. As a bonus, this talk introduces StatusNet's business and how to apply to under-represented free network services. Since this conference is more technical, we will dig deeper into the LAMP-powered StatusNet software, the updated OpenMicroBlogging standard that allows distributed federated microblogging, and will explore the basics of free network services through the eyes of the Franklin Street Declaration.
