Wow the head of the Open Technology Fund just resigned over lobbying efforts to force it to fund closed-source projects vice.com/en_us/article/935k5p/

I'm reliably informed it's Friday today, which means it's my last day at Moodle!

(and yes, I have put on a bit of weight during lockdown, how kind of you to notice...)

I'm starting to think that the appeal of sandbox games such as Minecraft under late capitalism lies in the players' encounter with a world where not everything is owned and defined already.
Especially for the majority of people that lives in urban surroundings these days, it may well be the first time they find themselves able to interact with their environment and shape something new.
It's closely related to the art of graffiti, redefining and in doing so appropriating the liminal and / or inaccessible spaces that abound in the urban landscape, such as bridges, tunnels, railroads and streets.

#Pleroma -- my Blog post yesterday on Pleroma as an Alternative to Mastodon was surprisingly well received.

I have received messages from various people, asking for recommendations of good Pleroma instances to join.

And i am working on it. Serious. As I write here, I am logged in and chatting with friends I just met, all in various Pleroma nodes, that responded to my #introductions post there, thanking the admin for the service.

I will prepare a detailed Blog post, with more suggestions and reasons, but for now, kudos and a mention are appropriate.

Highly Recommended -- FAB

Also known as the German instance with the impossible to remember name, which is *completely accurate*.

Thank you to @absturztaube
