Withdrew yet another application for a job today when I was requested to complete a 2 hour test before a call or interview could be had.

Why should a developer spend 2 hours of time in order to get an audience with a prospective employer?

Stand up against these policies.

Na wo bleibt denn da der Spass? Einfach fragen kann ja jeder.

Create a ARM version of the SDK/App that can be run on a headless RaspberryPi, so people can support the network without having to run their desktop PC all the time and waste a lot of energy. :thinkerguns:

Ein Rapper als US-Präsident? Offensichtlich sind wir schon näher an den Zuständen aus dem Film "Idiocracy" als ich dachte, ist wohl an der Zeit PepsiCo Aktien zu kaufen...

die richtige Antwort wäre besser: "Ich hoffe das dauert noch länger bis ich dazu komme."

Google Analytics is the most prevalent tracker in the world. During our last crawl, we found it on 64.2% of web sites:

Developers: every time you add Google Analytics to a site, you are helping build the global panopticon. Stop it!

Hey Apple,

Saying you block trackers but not blocking Google Analytics is like saying you practice safe sex when you cut off the heads of your condoms.

Sincerely,
A guy who makes an app that actually blocks trackers

Reading this I'm extremely happy it is summer here, but yes I should probably spend more time in my garden too...

Oh, and I trust the admins of my instance a million times more than big companys like Google, Facebook or Twitter. As a matter of fact Eugen could read my direct messages if he wants to, those companys do read them for sure.

Exacly, "social networks" are not about privacy.

Everything you post, toot, tweet... is meant to be puplic, if you are looking for privacy you have to use other tools to communicate.

If Mastodon was meant for private conversation this conversation would not exist at all. I dare to say we would never have known of each other's existance.

@jsalvador
@Coffee

Isn't this what Mastodon is all about?

Being visible, having open conversations other people can join if they are interested in the topic, talk to people one would never have met otherwise?
Encryption for direct messages is on the todo-list iirc, until it is here just use something else for private communication (have a look at delta.chat for example)

Auf meinen Geräten wird die App nicht installiert. Und das nicht wegen der App an sich, sondern weil sie von den Google Play Diensten abhängt. Die API ist die nötig ist damit sie funktioniert kann ich nur bekommen wenn ich gleichzeitig eine ganze Menge an Daten und Kontrolle an Google abgebe und das ist für mich nicht akzeptabel.

I know and follow that account, otherwise I wouldn't mention it 😂 (btw so did you).
They crosspost but the account has a way to low follower count imho

Maybe not malicious, but still centralised.
LBRY Inc. can control a selfhosted Mastodon instance in a federated, decentralised network. Isn't that what LBRY Inc. itself is promoting?
At least it is a fallback option if most people following the Twitter account know about it.
