#fediverse - Please boost
1) Mastodon is not one but many.
Mastodon - a free ( as in freedom ) open source (#FOSS) microblogging software developed by a community. [ Mainly @Gargron :) ]. You can run it yourself or join a community's/ friend's server you like.
Twitter - a microblogging service run by a company. Their service is running on their servers. Nothing much is in your hand really.
Oh, finally, some foss-lightbulb-firmware coming up:
Generally speaking I consider "smart lightbulbs" the most pointless thing ever, but hey, who am I to tell people that running a HA-K8s cluster in a datacenter just to turn your lights on and off might costs more energy than you safe when you turn off the LEDs on the go, if you forgot to turn them off.
Why @email@example.com switched from #Slack to @firstname.lastname@example.org:
* Slack is expensive, and holds data ransom;
* Alternatives exist: @RiotChat@twitter.com is continuously improving;
* An open standard for interoperability was considered important, if not essential.
The PeerTube content bootstrap fund:
@ubuntustudio, the Linux distribution "for creative humans", will move to KDE's Plasma desktop by default for future releases. Plasma's "better tools for graphics artists and photographers" and lightness make it the ideal desktop for Ubuntu Studio's users.
The KDE community looks forward to working closely with Ubuntu Studio in delivering the best desktop experience to their users.
