#Mastodon celebrates it's two year anniversary. It is really impressive what all the people together with @Gargron achieved. Not only with Mastodon as such but also the underlaying technology #ActivityPub and the rich ecosystem of apps and tool around it. Thanks to all the people who made it happen! I'm sure the free, decentralized and open web has a bright future! #fediverse https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2018/10/mastodons-2-year-anniversary/
Interesting read on why #Microsoft joined #OIN https://www.yahoo.com/news/microsoft-may-relinquishing-billions-android-patent-royalties-141047213.html TL;DR Microsoft is in a transition from a product company to a service company. With Azure they earn a lot of money these days with people running Free Software on their cloud platform. Which means that the threat of software patent interferes with the growth of their services business these days.
Wow, when I heard the rumors last week I bet that this will not going to happen. But now #Microsoft really surprised me by joining the Open Invention Network #OIN. This also means that they have to stop using #patents against #Android! https://www.zdnet.com/article/microsoft-open-sources-its-entire-patent-portfolio
Feeling lost on Mastodon? Wondering what all of those timelines and options mean?
