anyway, the stickers feature is actually two different things

a personal media collection (misskey already has this)
the ability to include files from your personal collection in posts instead of uploading new ones

this will also allow personal emoji later on.

Twitter got the axe this week. The LinuxRocks Mastodon instance is my only social media now. Also, good morning ๐Ÿ™‚.

capitalism inhibits creativity so much in search for the most profit

Radicle: A decentralized alternative to #GitHub built on IPFS

Issues, decentralized and bundled.


Please #StopUsingMedium. Itโ€™s really annoying and makes me not read your content, no matter how good it is. Not specific for this author. This a general statement.

It's sad to see that #Gnome accounts mainly features non-free services.

For whatever reason the number 1 entry is Google. Then, yay, Nextcloud as a free software integration, followed by Facebook, Microsoft, Flickr and Foursquare.

The last two are usually hidden, those are free protocol-based integrations like SMTP+POP3/IMAP and Kerberos.

I wonder if we can't do better than pushing those big non-free services using our wonderful free desktop platform.

@gnome any thoughts?

As of the most recent release of Misskey from about a day ago, its implementation of polls is now fully compatible and federated with Mastodon's implementation.

And about possible jobs in JG, MMT promoters often mention social care and policies for the Environment and in general whatever is overlooked by the private sector because it generates few profits or none.

There will always be something to do, from maintenance of public infrastructures to scientific research, from transition to new and more sustainable technologies of energy and goods production to cultural initiatives.

After all, humanity is still in its infancy.

@alexl not to worry, "xmpp is stupid and useless because we already have email" is a similar take i have seen. there is no solution to protocol fragmentation except to create bridges wherever it makes sense.

i.e. you can use whatever you want as long as it meets your needs. i use irc for chatrooms, xmpp for direct chat, activitypub for pubsub. yes, i could use xmpp for all of the above. i choose not to. bridges exist, i'm sure. if not, they can be written.

Indie Web Server

If you want to run your own personal web server, this is as easy as it gets.

- Zero-configuration

- Seamless TLS for development and production (without certificate warnings + A grade on SSL Labs in production).

- Command-line: use it to serve your static web site

- API: build your own dynamic web app on it in Node.js using Express, etc.

@Shamar about being "worse" than JavaScript from the user point of view I suggest you to take a look at the following video, minute 20:30, because the speaker explains that WebAssembly can be used "outside of the browser" and I'd say this is a chance to reuse Web developers experience, libraries, frameworks and tools and lead them to a paradigm that isn't the actual client-server one where you need to trust a server you don't control.

Please pay attention to terms manipulated by modern propaganda:

Democracy โ‰  Universal suffrage
Capitalism โ‰  Market economy
Populist โ‰  Demagogic
Nationalism โ‰  Chauvinism
Liberalism โ‰  Liberism
Fascism โ‰  Authoritarianism
Dictatorship โ‰  Political repression
Globalism โ‰  Internationalism
