What is #Seppo?

A tool to publish short texts, links and one fine day images, too, and socialise in the Social Web, also referred to as the Fediverse.

And not be subject to terms and conditions. No fretting about small print or tech lore. And without the need for an IT-consultant, nor becoming one. But rather keep having a life.

By renting old-school web space and dropping a single file.

How is that possible, that's for experts, right?

No.

Allow the comparison with cycling: Building a bike is ambitious and only few can do that. But riding one makes sense for many. Likewise it takes a lot to responsibly operate (let alone build) an entire internet-server. And the more complicated, the more difficult to operate and maintain.

The way out is to leverage cheaply available commodities, reduce, omit secondary things and make housekeeping smooth and safe. For both, human and machine.

What may I say with #Seppo?

Everything permitted by law. And what is fine for you to see again decades later as an unexpected boomerang 🪃. Be kind.

As you operate #Seppo yourself, you are obliged to nobody but public law. Because you don't need assistance, nobody else has a say. You and only you are accountable. The technical simplicity of #Seppo becomes an empowering asset — along with the Social Web / #Fediverse / ActivityPub integration.

What is one's own bike on the internet

  1. independent operation without outside help (apart from renting web space),
  2. 'ownership' of the space & name (rented),
  3. freedom of expression (e.g. German Grundgesetz, Article 5), i.e. there are no restrictions through general terms and conditions or other terms of use, third-party codes of conduct or similar. Local laws of server location and place of residence apply,
  4. few functions, just sufficient for post & like of texts, pictures,
  5. no maintenance (no security updates necessary), simple deactivation by deleting files.

So what now?

Until #Seppo can dogfood itself at @demo@Seppo.Social you have to resort to Seppo.Social/development
