Check out Trunk, a list of Mastodon lists on Community Wiki! They've got lists of different people to follow on Mastodon but the GLAM lists are either pretty short or non-existent. Hit up the Wiki and get added to the list(s) of your choice!

Julia 1.0 is out julialang.org/blog/2018/08/one, for those who haven't checked out the language and ecosystem, worth your time :)

Consider to move away from evil digital empires (like Google, FB...) and their mind farming agorithms and spywares. Found very useful guide from @Tutanota that can help you discover alternatives. #privacy #FOSS

Just had to block the first spam account on infosec.exchange. I suspect Mastodon is going to quickly need to implement defensive tools to combat automated spam account registrations, as has had to be done on other sites, like blogs and forums. My wordpress instance for defensivesscurity.org, for example, has about 2k-3k attempted spam account registrations per day. Given the nature and reach of Mastodon, I suspect spammers will focus their efforts here soon

.@Blender's videos on #YouTube have now come back, but they are also being told by Google/YT that they HAVE to monetise them. #Blender are considering refusing, which presumably would mean the videos being taken down again:

blender.org/media-exposure/you

Whatever they once stood for, #Google's aim now is exploiting their users' content for maximum profit.

If you don't want your videos to be exploited, it is important to switch to an independent alternative:

joinpeertube.org/en/

#DeleteYouTube

and I want to emphasize this about the scale we're talking.

you don't need an internet connection to build a distributed social network with Pleroma. you can go off the grid, and have a fully autonomous social and communication infrastructure, just on a mesh network with some raspberry pis, and connect it to the internet if you want to or not.

that's possible right now.

Math articles on are just the absolute worst.

I reliably don't understand *anything at all* of what wikipedia math articles are saying, even for concepts that I already understand, have applied and implemented myself.

Like, I don't know if reading about a topic can actually make you understand *less* about it, but if so wikipedia math articles are the absolute holy grail of that field.

Attention knitters: (n) the ad-tech people who make sure your recommended youtube videos smoothly transition from lets-plays to people who are very angry that the lizard people refuse to inflate the flat earth with ghosts

The lady who said a half million dead Iraqi children was worth it wants to warn us about fascism.

If this shit is true, fuck the world. Can't these society parasites just let it be for a while? Ffs

Turns out I can’t be #googleless until I find a good contact replacement.

Google only works with google play. And Mac contacts only work on Mac computers.

What’s the alternative?
