Pinned toot

whisper it softly mastonauts but we live through an incredible period. enormous challenges, yes, but also enormous promise

no, has not won yet. not while continues to be the device from hell for billions.

not while it takes a geek to just host a server, let alone to have regular users adopt, develop and create their own new communication modes

but it will win. 5 or even 10 years is nothing for a project that will rewire our entire collective

There is both a risk and an opportunity in the current political sabre-rattling against "social media" in multiple countries. The #DataFarms will attempt to capture any new regulation and twist it into anti-competitive forms that disproportionately target smaller players, and even non-commercial ones like most #fediverse instances (eg #Article13). But if we can educate politicians enough, they might begin dismantling the datafarming revenue model that gives #TheStacks their dominance (eg #GDPR).

event coordination? simply host nextcloud and ask your friends to install compatible calDAV clients. facebook is unecessary. messaging? if your friends don't want to exchange device keys to ensure that your end-to-end encrypted matrix chat is secure, then are they even your friends?

@SeriousFun fediverse.party/ might tell you more about decentralized platform, though definitelly not all of them.

privacytools.io/ might be considered to be simple privavacy guide.

Unfortunetally, I'm not aware of any really comprinhensive text right now. Even EFF thinks that situation is a mess and they were speaking just about the more "mainstream" messaging apps. eff.org/deeplinks/2018/03/secu

I think I will write a "GoodMorning Bot", to reply to all those lonely souls that toot "good morning" into the digital void (actually inserting a record into a database)

Just my little contribution to make the a more welcoming place 🤖

I am receiving the same email about registering a domain for "SEO purposes" for about half a decade now

I think the spammer died long time ago, but a lonely and royal keeps sending those automated emails because those where the last instructions of the master

"Former Mozilla exec: Google has sabotaged Firefox for years"

I mean, I think it's obvious at this point that while the chrome team seems to have good intentions, the company around it is a sleazy, immoral ad company. Being an engineer doesn't make you immune to the policies and incentives of the toxic company you work for.
