I don't want to be the BDFL of pixelfed. I want to move on to different things after I feel it's polished enough.

Privacy is dead for millennials, I think not!

Millennials are more nervous than any other age group about using smart home technology, according to research by Accenture

@dansup YES. I'm in the process of planning an instance for my non-techie knitting friends and pixelfed seems like the natural choice because it puts the focus on photos and this group is all about the visuals.. but it doesn't federate well with Mastodon so I think it will feel a little isolated.

If there were a more Instagram-like frontend for Mastodon that would help, although I don't know how that would work with their different commenting models.

😻 € 20 000 in 5 days, #Mobilizon will exist... thanks to you all, so thank you!
Now is when we know if we'll get enought for a federated tool.

Sharing is caring ;).

I think it would be awesome for Mastodon to experiment with alternative frontends.

I can see Tumblr, Instagram and YouTube inspired UIs becoming huge for Mastodon since it already supports those types of content.

Mobilizon, the upcoming open federated alternative to Facebook Events, has reached its first crowdfunding goal of €20k:

joinmobilizon.org/en/

This covers development of the events software itself.

The next goal, €35k, adds federation through ActivityPub, which will let people on the Fediverse share and join events. This could be crucial to helping many more people leave Facebook πŸ‘

I'm gonna keep posting this until one of you fucking boosts it

I'd love to form a co-op of marginalized folks that want to work in this FOSS space. We could push actual social change forward. I don't know where we'd start, though, or who our customers would be.
