@blakehaswell One factor to consider is that if the Australian law is considered to be "successful" then similar laws will be passed elsewhere.

Some possible tactics:

- Ensure that any backdoors which the government adds are discovered and publicized
- Work towards reproducible builds
- Encourage everyone not to trust proprietary chat apps. Assume that such apps are already backdoored
- Devise and deploy systems for monitoring the relevant open source projects. For example, a system which monitors open source chat apps and lists changes to cryptography related sections. Make code review of sensitive files trivial
- The government won't follow its own laws, and will use apps which are not backdoored. Use FOIA or anything similar to check what apps are used/purchased by officials and point out the hypocrisy
- Run cryptography workshops for your people. Make cryptography cool. Make it fashionable. Make songs and art about it. The government will prefer that people are uneducated on the topic

...eso que PERDES un día, literalmente, "flasheando" no móbil padiante e patrás, e éntranche gañas de mercar un i- :apple_inc: de esos de 1000€ e mandar todo a 💩 . Ou invadir Polonia 🇵🇱 . Whatever.

E aínda así non sei si erá de esta :blobfacepalm:

vexo no TL federado que ainda queda algun usuario do éxodo da tuita de hai un par de meses. Bonito, né? 🙈😉

@spla a hi ha unes publicacions de fa 4hores. Això no ho fa el pont.

This place feels definitively different, but altogether much better than tumblr
However, I haven't been here all that long, so who knows if that'll change

Hi I'm Mike. I've been around the Fediverse for a while. I created the Friendica, RedMatrix, Hubzilla, Osada, and Zap projects. I developed the DFRN, Zot/Zot6 and OWA protocols.

My software does some pretty cool stuff, but I'm not out to win any popularity contests and world domination isn't my thing. I played a non-trivial role in creating the modern internet and now I'm investing my time and energy creating ethical alternative services to bring back a real sense of privacy and self-determination.

I have a modest farm in Bugger All, Australia and raise cows, horses, and chooks. I drink kickass #homebrew and play a mean #guitar.

Have a great day.

hey everyone, I'm brand new to mastodon so I figured I should introduce myself in my first post! I'm an animation student from southern California, and I mainly create animation and illustration. I also enjoy cosplay and a bunch of other nerdy shit.

I'm mainly going to use this account to post my art and news/info about the animation industry, so give me a follow if you're interested!

tired: the F*** "Imp Pt" key is JUST above "Back" key on my keyboard.
So often when I try to edit my writting I take a screenshot.

ToDo: write a cron job to delete them all every week or so. :blobfacepalm:


I should likely introduce myself, even if my profile isn't even done!
I'm Fia Lagerdahl and I'm a freelance photographer, self taught and in the process of dusting off my abilities after a long hiatus. My main focus is nature photography but I do branch out for practice.

I'm happy that @Gargron is always quick to recommend @pinafore to folks who prefer single-column layouts. I see Pinafore less as a competitor and more as a statement about how it's *possible* to build alternative Mastodon UIs (thanks to Eugen's good API design). #Halcyon and #Brutaldon are also great examples of this.

The Mastodon frontend doesn't have to be all things to all people. We have a wide choice of mobile apps; it should be the same for the web.

I didn't repeat it enough times:

I made a small #artodon upgrade to make remote follows work as they should. Now you can discover new artists easily and follow them from Artodon.
