I'm temporarily taking down my personal mastodon instance for some changes. Feel free to mention me here (and not my account on my personal instance) if there's anything urgent in the meantime.
It will be back up soon but may not be ready for use right away. I'll toot from it whenever it's ready.
Hahahaahahaha holy shit. Hiveway is a fork of Mastodon with blockchain slapped on top, selling ICO tokens, and John McAfee is involved. Wew lad
Hi just your local rabid copyleft zealot here with a gentle reminder that
if @Gargron had not changed Mastondon's license to AGPL, then John McAfee could have taken his blockchain-scented knockoff 100% proprietary closed gfy source and we'd never know what shenanigans he gets up to within it. Thank you Gargron!
This is really important stuff.
They do surveys which show school teachers require children to sign up to proprietary services which kids younger than 13 aren't even able to legally sign up to.
They are trying to teach today's teachers to not ask kids to use WhatsApp or github.
They provide alternative FOSS solutions for schools, such edugit.org with kid-compatible TOS.

Scary thread here about how the Alt-Right have been infiltrating and actively recruiting to neo-Nazi ideology on online depression forums.
<<NOBODY is talking about how the online depression community has been infiltrated by alt-right recruiters deliberately preying on the vulnerable.
There NEED to be public warnings about this. 'Online pals' have attempted to groom me multiple times when at my absolute lowest. >>
I keep seeing these posts about people who is going to be kicked out of their homes and ask for help to the community
We shoud collect data about this phenomenon.
This could be the beginning of a worldwide welfare system
I also read that one of the GNUHealth guys was envisioning a worldwide ID system so that a receiver of health care performances could be identified if they move around the world and maybe their scans could be accessible

Hi guys, I'm here to ask for help, not for me but for my partners. They need to raise some cash to help the two of them move into a new apartment, as they're essentially getting kicked out.

and a commission page here: https://a-bra-ca-fuck-you.tumblr.com/post/171174023786/a-bra-ca-fuck-you-something-something-updates
If you can help these wonderful people I love, I can't put into words how much I'd appreciate it. Thank you for reading, and please share if you can

My mother and I are disabled and autistic and I'm also trans. We could end homeless in some months as our support system is at grave risk, but we could get a very cheap place of our own to secure a home forever. Please retoot and help us!
