What's better than an project with an account on the ? An opensource project on the fediverse that gives out shiny stickers. Thanks @charm. Also @mailtape @elementary @openstreetmap but those stickers aren't so

Someone carved the alphabet into a tree and let it deform for five years and made a font out of it: bjoernkarmann.dk/occlusion-gro

Thread: #OtD 13 May 1985 Philadelphia police attacked the home of Black liberation and environmental group MOVE, then dropped a bomb on it, killing 5 adults and 6 children, destroying 61 homes in the predominantly Black neighbourhood, and making 250 people homeless.

Don't give up on self care just because something didn't work for you. Keep trying new ways of being kind to yourself!

Comfy morning to you all, dear fedifolks ๐ŸŒบ

One of the unexpected joys of the fediverse over other places is the addition of weird domains appended on to everyone's usernames.

It makes the web feel like more than just four websites again.

It's both a signal of a smaller more intimate internet and also a larger and far more diverse internet at the same time!

hi! #introduction
just joined and looking to expand my horizons ๐Ÿ‘€ any artists here in the same boat? feel free to interact

i love nature and selectively some games, books, comics and animated works but they keep changing :)

here's some of my old stuff because i forgot how to draw in uni and i'm barely slowly getting back into it now:

I finally finished my final screen print for my printmaking class today and this is the result! I made roughly 25 prints, and each print took 6 screens to make :>

It was very ambitious and the registration was,,,, hard but! I'm v v proud of it!

Some Fediverse alternatives to "big tech" social media:

Twitter โžก๏ธ @Mastodon

Instagram โžก๏ธ @pixelfed

YouTube โžก๏ธ @peertube

Twitch โžก๏ธ @owncast

Goodreads โžก๏ธ @bookwyrm

Facebook Groups โžก๏ธ @mobilizon

Medium โžก๏ธ @writefreely

You don't need an account on all of these in order to interact with them.

Because they all use the ActivityPub open protocol, you can (for example) use a Mastodon account to follow someone on PixelFed or vice versa. That's why they are collectively known as the Fediverse, because they federate together at a technical level.

Also, this is an incomplete list, there are many other Fedi projects out there such as @funkwhale or @inventaire that are not direct alternatives but are their own thing.
