I am happy to reveal that a non-profit legal entity for Mastodon, Mastodon gGmbH, is in the process of being entered into the German company register.

For context, I have been operating as a sole proprietor so far.

It's been in the works for 8 months but I didn't want to announce anything until everything was finalized just in case it didn't work out. Yesterday, I paid in the starting capital.

It wouldn't be possible without the help and advice of @mellifluousbox. More to follow in blog form.

So I have an announcement. I sent an email to my work saying that I wanted to be able to focus on my work on taking advancing the federated social web to the next level. Read: better security / abuse resistance, richer interactions, virtual worlds.

How will I be funded to do this? I don't know. I do know that the state of the political world scares me enough that I feel I have to do this. If you want to support me:

I don’t think he has ever been transphobic, but I can believe the guy who made Emacs is an ableist, and no need to argue about the misogynist part

REGARDLESS, even if he was innocent of all accusations, the fact the FSF needed Stallman back is a sign they’re not actually capable of taking their own direction. Would the FSF just dissolve if he died?

If I'm writing an application for a job, and I would like to stress that I want an employer that consider me a long term investment, not just a temporary solution, how can I tactfully express that in (British) English?

Super tempted to make my own minecraft. Write in the functionality of all my favorite mods from the start, make everything super detailed, exactly the way I want it. I'd probably never finish, but it could be fun. XD

@play0ad I love to play RTS with friends and family and played many hours of age of empires II before finding out about 0ad. The people behind the game impressed me tremendously. It has a very strong, active community. The game is seriously good and after a few months enjoying it, I wonder why they still call it alpha!
