As promised, version 1.0 of #PeerTube, a free and federated video platform, has just been released.
Thanks to all the people who supported this summer's crowdfunding.
This is only the beginning!

I grabbed a couple of Quidditch boxes. Gonna put them together at work, make a pitch out of felt, and display somewhere in the library.
Also, I got the new Ant-Man set because it's Ant-Man!
At the library where I work, I've had to help so many elderly people who can't make head nor tail of web forms. I'm happy to help them, but the issue shouldn't exist in the first place.
Whether it's applying for a parking permit, recovering an email password, booking a holiday, or whatever else, bad forms are a usage barrier.
If your web form can't be understood by a pensioner with limited computer skills, it's not good enough.
The fact that articles 13 and 11 were approved, (let alone under discussion), shows what a chokehold the copyright industry has on the governments of the world, but I'd think that the #EU would be a bit more cautious at adopting an unpopular position, considering Brexit and what's going on in Italy, Hungary, Austria etc. but no - maybe they just think that nobody can see them.
Happy Star Wars Day!
There are some really freaking cool people i'd never virtually meet had I not joined the fediverse.
Thank you all for being awesome. For every minor negative encounter I've had on here there have been literally hundreds of positive connections.
I'm still blown away that such a healthy social network exists.
Still summer-like in London. Today's musical mood:
