‣ Imagine a world where companies only want to offer the best for their users, and not their investors.
‣ Imagine a world where everyone can freely use services, and freely donate to them as they see fit.
‣ Imagine a world where users can directly raise their opinions and proposals, even vote about them.
‣ Imagine a world without unnecessary data collection.
‣ Imagine a world where platforms are fully owned and operated by their users.

Sounds utopian? A first step into this world is using #Codeberg

Have you considered the Use Case where the User is angry with you, doesn't like you, doesn't like your Product (tm), thinks your entire socio-economic class are measurably making everything worse and accelerating a global slide into fascism, genocide and extinction, and is only sullenly interacting with your Product (tm) at the cracking point of the harsh whip of capitalism because they will lose the ability to eat if they do not

because you might find that's quite a large class of users

It's often assumed that because Twitter has a larger userbase than the Fediverse, that accounts would automatically get more followers there.

However, many accounts (especially FOSS projects) have more followers here on the Fediverse.

Some examples (as of 26th July 2021):

@fdroidorg has 10.8k vs 7.33k on Twitter

@k9mail has 1.57k vs 680 on Twitter

@Minetest has 1.39k vs 785 on Twitter

If you know any Libre projects that are yet to join the Fedi, please ask them to give it a go!

After a big month of hard work, I'm happy to release today a new website for my webcomic Pepper&Carrot! It was a rewrite I made from scratch this time:

More infos and report on the blog-post:

Shame. 😔

Shame is what I expect to grow day by day for every FOSS project staying on Microsoft services. It's like environment protection projects holding meetings on an oil-rig.

Sounds crazy? Then try adding bug reports, feature requests or comments to projects on github without a Microsoft account – any you'll see the insanity of the situation.

Diaspora wird ja gerne als Teil des Fediverse gesehen - ist es aber IMHO nicht. Das Fediverse spricht nahezu einheitlich ActivityPub. Meine Prognose: Alle Dienste, die das nicht unterstützen, werden in absehbarer Zeit nicht mehr Teil des Fediverse sein.

A decade ago…

“Kids, get off the facebook, don’t waste your life away! Don’t trust anyone you meet online, you could get hurt!” — The Parents

A decade later…

“Mom, Dad, please stop with the forwards, they’re clearly fake and you’re spreading misinformation that could hurt people! Don’t trust everything you read online!” — The Kids

Devs who are hosting their projects on #GitHub should allow people to report issues with an alternative way (by email for example).

Because I can't contribute to project I like because I don't want to create an account on a fucking #Microsoft #proprietary service. I already have an account on @codeberg and it is fine for me. And I think other people have the same problem.

“First cross-app comment loaded in Podfriend , Wohoooo!”
Thank you @martin for making cross-application comments for podcasting a real thing! 🙏 🥳
Now the audience can interact with a podcaster with no middleman. ✊💬

COVID vaccine encouragement 

Get vaxxed if you're on the fence. They work. They're safe.

I got COVID again (and have it as I write this) anyway despite the vax because I am an unlucky bastard and one of my doses had improper storage (and the immunity isn't lasting, I had it last over a year ago). Do not be deterred.

mray boosted is still working to get launched, and we've made huge progress in charting the path forward. You can help too!

Hello #fediverse 👋

Well, it isn't Hello, World because we've been around since February 2018 thanks to @xuv.

But now, we're here as a project. We are slowly taking shape as a true community-run project. We'll post updates about our progress here.
