I've spent the past week getting to know myself better and doing some self care.
I am proud to come out as a gay man.
I never thought I'd have the courage to do this and I really want to thank the fediverse for helping me be comfortable with who I really am.
I love you guys ❤️ #pride
In case it wasn't clear:
I am anti-racism, anti-sexism, anti-homophobia, and believe black lives matter. If you have a problem with that, smash that unfollow button.
"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."

Hey people new to Mastodon!
Did you know that Mastodon is part of a wider network called the Fediverse?
These (and more) are on the Fediverse too:
PixelFed - an Instagram alternative (https://pixelfed.org)
PeerTube - a YouTube alternative (https://joinpeertube.org)
WriteFreely - a blogging platform like Medium (https://writefreely.org)
Lemmy - a Reddit alternative (https://join.lemmy.ml)
You can follow Fediverse accounts from Mastodon, because Fediverse platforms talk to each other.
NGI Zero is a fund that promotes open internet standards and privacy friendly projects. You can follow them at:
Find out more or apply for funding at this website: https://nlnet.nl/ (NLnet is the non-profit foundation that runs the fund)
They have supported CryptPad, Funkwhale, Lemmy, PeerTube, PixelFed, SearX and many many others: https://nlnet.nl/project/current.html
FediDB now displays #NodeInfo info, software version and more stats if available.
More updates coming this weekend!
I am happy to reveal that a non-profit legal entity for Mastodon, Mastodon gGmbH, is in the process of being entered into the German company register.
For context, I have been operating as a sole proprietor so far.
It's been in the works for 8 months but I didn't want to announce anything until everything was finalized just in case it didn't work out. Yesterday, I paid in the starting capital.
It wouldn't be possible without the help and advice of @mellifluousbox. More to follow in blog form.
Hi I'm looking for work again
Notable experience: I wrote the Mastodon documentation and I help manage Pixelfed
Looking for documentation, technical writing, could also do Github issue triage or junior programming, project/product management
Can be either a permanent role or a temporary contract thing
Such a hopeful move for #fediverse as a playground and innovation space for humane technologists.
Just quoted it in a post to the new #SocialHub related Lemmy space I created yesterday:
