I'm looking for a smaller Mastodon instance to move to from mastodon.social.

My criteria:
☑️ General focus or technology focus
☑️ Must be chill
☑️ No Nazis

Anyone have any recommendations?

Imma make this clear: I'm not building software for developers.

I'm working to building tools for people.

You shouldn't have to know to maintain and secure a server to have your own independent identity online. You shouldn't need to know what libsodium or similar library to be secure online.

That's my objective.

Great news: my favourite tool for planning #running sessions #onthegomap onthegomap.com breaks free from #Google. Instead of Googlemap, it is now using #OpenStreetMap data. Even if some functions (searching box, elevation, etc.) are still missing, I congratulate the author for this brave move. #map #opensource

I really like #OSMAnd but oh boy, #Maps (f-droid.org/en/packages/com.gi) is really, really fast and slick. Both in rendering and navigation.

Not quite as featureful as OSMAnd though, I'll probably use both in the future.

(Update coming to your local @fdroidorg repo soon)

I'm still amazed by the state of that industry. Why paying for an eBook for nearly the same price as a printed book gives you a file you don't own and you can't use, while piracy gives you a file you can use like an actual book?

When buying a book, I can read it where I want, in as many places I want, on as many couches I want, and I can even lend it to a friend. And that's legal.

Wasn't technology supposed to make the future better?
