1) Mastodon is not one but many.

Mastodon - a free ( as in freedom ) open source () 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 @gnuradio@twitter.com switched from #Slack to @matrixdotorg@twitter.com:

* 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.

I started working on cross-signing in @matrix with the initial spec proposal submitted in September 2018. Over a year and a half later, it's nearly ready to go live in Riot.im. We had a video-conferenced key-signing party today at work, which involved us yelling emoji over each other. It's nice to have people stress-testing something that you've worked on for so long, and have it hold up.
