Het is na het debacle rond het dividendbelastingmemo niet toevallig dat Dijkhoff het opeens iedere dag over uitkeringstrekkers en asielzoekers heeft.
Het relatief harder aanpakken van kwetsbare groepen is geen teken van grote klasse.
Het is ook nog eens zo dat belastingontwijking door multinationals qua financiële schade een eindeloos veel groter probleem is.
Federated social media will out live giants like facebook, twitter. They might have a small user base but that means nothing, they are not run for a profit and a single node going down has little impact on the hole of the network.
And being a for purpose network, it is not left to the mercy of market valuation that has killed so many social networks in the past.

It's been a while since a Pinafore update! The master branch is deployed to dev.pinafore.social though, so you can try it out there. The next update should include things like:
- a "reply all" icon to identify threads
- list of mentioned users in CW'ed posts
- smarter network timeouts for offline mode
In case you're wondering what's been going on, it's mostly been about making the tests less flaky so that the project is healthier. Yay project sustainability! https://github.com/nolanlawson/pinafore/compare/nolanlawson:5aa8ba6...nolanlawson:b7748d8
You can tell when I'm using Pinafore as a Windows PWA because my posts have tons of spelling errors. Hoping spellcheck comes in the next release 🤞
So we have Mastodon, pleroma, gnusocial in the messaging space of the fediverse, pixelfed playing in the instaphoto space, and peertube making progress in video. What other non-text AP services are popping up? I want to support as many as I can - with encouragement if not ca$h
The Nordic Creatives podcast I was interviewed for after my talk in Copenhagen is now out. Among other things, hear me rant about surveillance capitalists like Google and Facebook as well as their cohorts (like Singularity University and the Danish government that appointed an ambassador—of all things—to Silicon Valley) and rave about Mastodon and @Purism :)
Many thanks to https://twitter.com/xhensilareci for the lovely interview :)
All right let's just face it. I'm having a better experience on mastodon.technology - same awesome nice people, more focused local timeline, and less stuff I don't care about seeing. Federated timeline still has plenty of variety to keep it from being an echo chamber. I'm moving over! 🛫
Today I learned that there are a number of Linux-based laptop shops in Europe.

Keep an eye on:
#PeerTube is free/libre software alternative to YouTube
-- federated (uses ActivityPub)
-- peer2peer streaming
-- currently in beta
non-profit @Framasoft is crowdfunding its development
this project is already usable (more than 50 instances)
and can be a game-changer.
Boost its development and give it more visibility.
500k hits in the first week! The $20/mth server has no problem keeping up. Thanks redis!
I'm not sure if I'm missing something or if it's not possible at all, but..
I want to build a serverside (i.e. the server holds access tokens) mastodon "client", but I don't want to implement a login-flow on the server.
Can I somehow re-authenticate with the mastodon instance such that:
1) I reuse the same client-id, and the user doesn't end up with multiple "app authorizations".
2) The user is required to authenticate themselves with their instance in each session.
