mastodon meta (fairly important) 

Hey, Fediverse. I see more and more bridges between Twitter and here. And why I donโ€™t think itโ€™s inherently the worst thing ever, youโ€™re doing it wrong. So many twitter links, missing images, and posts with missing context. Either be better or donโ€™t do it at all.

โ€œJust install Linux on itโ€ is the โ€œjust change the engine of your carโ€ of tech.

Not everyone is a mechanic, not everyone wants to be a mechanic, and, if we want a world where freedom is the norm, we must stop expecting everyone to become a mechanic.

Note: this is not because these people are too dumb to be mechanics. Itโ€™s because theyโ€™re brain surgeons and space-shuttle pilots and they have three kids and they care for a loved one and they donโ€™t have time to also be a mechanic.

Iโ€™ll be live on Al Jazeera News Grid ~ 15:35-15:55 today to discuss Facebookโ€™s consolidation of Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram.

Expect my best what-the-fuck-were-you-expecting face and some slowly boiling frogs analogies ๐Ÿต๐Ÿธ

In the not too distant future this account may not be able to interact with them due to ass-hattery on the part of the admin.

Also, this is a distributed network, one node that is something like 90% of the network goes against that. Don't support Gargrons refusal to accept accessibility as a good idea and being all cagey about funding sources.

Just one more week and the peoples meet up at , can't wait!

What a supreme start to 2019, the best is yet to come ๐Ÿ˜‰

La bataille du libre, un documentaire contributopique !

Nous avons eu la chance de voir le nouveau documentaire de Philippe Borrel. Un conseil : ne le loupez pas, et surtout emmenez-y vos proches qui ne comprennent pas pourquoi vous les bassin

Friendica 2019.01 released โ€“ #friendica

Congrats to the whole Friendica team for a huge release! Why? It brings Friendica over to the #ActivityPub world, bringing compatibility with tens of additional projects not reachable via #OStatus, #Diaspora or #DFRN protocols. ๐ŸŽ‰

Whenever a web browser, operating system, or web site gains dominance among users, it stops being cool and starts becomes blatantly abusive.

This Chromium nonsense is just more of what we saw from Internet Explorer.

Every generation of geeks learns this anew, and acts all shocked. Learn some history, folks. Learn from those who came before.

Stop supporting only one platform. Variety is ESSENTIAL. Monocultures are death. #sysadmin

Does anyone here own a Mycroft? If so, what has your experience with it been like? Do you host your own servers for it?

If anyone in #Finland is planning a #Pixelfed instance, here is your chance! admin available with possibility of domain owner change if wanted.!XTcFGXYoSwwJPindt

Just put in my membership request to #FENEAS (Federated Network Association)

My hope is that we might be able to do great work together, given some of my own goals with projects like #WeDistribute and #VidCommons probably align with their own initiatives.

RT @codepitbull: I work in IT, which is the reason our house has:
- mechanical locks
- mechanical windows
- routers using OpenWRT
- no smart home crap
- no Alexa/Google Assistant/...
- no internet connected thermostats

We're seeking visually impaired or blind people with coding experience who want to help ensure solid screen reader behavior in a new iteration of the CodeMirror in-browser code editor. Accessibility in the previous iteration is terrible, and I want to do better this time around.

If you're prepared to answer questions about coding while blind, or to test-drive the current prototype of the editor, please get in touch here or via

@0x1C3B00DA I've just been learning more about #Feneas (Federated Network Association) today. I really like the vision by @cj to use #ActivityPub to create a federated protocol forge for specifying AP extensions. It's a genius solution, and a brilliant example of #dogfooding to boot ;)

I'll be at #FOSDEM. I'm interested in go-fed (AP in #golang) and getting folks writing #ActivityPub extensions into decentralized but federating spec-owning authorities. Who wants to meet up at FOSDEM? I would like to make sure to block out specific times to meet with folks to have these sorts of discussions.

Doesn't have to be 1:1 discussions either.

#WTF #WordPress! Requiring free code developers to use #Slack to contribute to your code, and making end users use #IRC for support? You've got this exactly backwards:

Busy reading through various articles on

Really well written and getting me more and more curious to try it all out. Especially to try Docker on ZFS and getting stuff more encrypted.

Thanks @angristan !
