Pinned toot


If our is only worth that much, then why can't we pay to keep it?

I'd gladly pay more than $70 a year in a heartbeat to use all of the popular platforms with guarantees of 100% privacy.

We need someone to do for privacy what did for music. Charge users and then broker deals to pay part of it to the platforms in exchange to them agreeing to stringent privacy standards on that account, such as collecting zero data, no ads/analytics etc.

Take my money... Please.

Almost the two month anniversary of this article: Maine’s police intelligence center sent reports on activists to corporations Still no clarity on why cops communicate information about protestors to ExxonMobil, Emera, Walmart, Smith & Wesson, Nestle, Sinclair Research, Verizon, Oxford Casino, Sprague Energy, Irving Oil, and Lockheed Martin, among other corporate partners. #BlueLeaks

#PeerTube now allows searching across all federated public instances. Next big feature: live streaming.

One of the most nauseating things I've seen recently... The test should really read "Rather than having your children befriend their imagination, have them befriend surveillance capitalism instead! Now in a fun, candy-like wrapper!"

Disturbing reports that Google Play is threatening to kick out Mastodon apps. See:

App stores have a track record of acting capriciously & are also easy targets for gov't censors (including Trump). This is why alternatives like @fdroidorg are so important for user freedom.

If unfamiliar: F-Droid is a free & open source app you can use to install other Android apps, with focus on free & open source software. Get it here:

I already made a toot about PeerTube v3 but here is a more elaborate blog post of mine about the v3 roadmap and the progressive fundraiser accompanying it.


Is there anything like GRUB available for the @PINE64 ? I'd really like to play with more than one operating system without constantly having to remove and replace the SD card multiple times a day...

Hello world! This is the mastodon account for #Mobian, a Debian customized for mobile phones/tablets. Here, we will comment, respond and report on the development. It will also contain quite some redundancy to our content on twitter (I guess). Welcome!


I'm wondering where a person should request a mobile Linux version of the and apps? Looking on GitHub, the repositories for the apps are OS specific (eg talk-android) so they don't seem a relevant place to all for a new platform.

Has anyone tried to install Nextcloud Linux desktop 2.7 RC1 on the ? I'm wondering how well it fits the screen?

Getting a very weird behaviour in @nextcloud talk.

Every user can immediately be seen and contacted by every other user on the instance without their permission?!

Is there a way to avoid this? Maybe something with the circles app?

It's so weird. Every other chat app I've ever seen gets a user to confirm a friend/contact request before letting people message them.

Is there a way to set this up so it's a bit more... private / secure?

upgrade completed, seemingly without any glitches 👀 . Everything appears to still work, and it seems faster now, too! Great work @yunohost devs!
