Also reminds me of #StarTrek #Discovery. First I though that this galactic #mycelium network was to much over the top, but now I think it's a very good thought out #scifi concept.

All the #distributed, #federated #webapps in the world don't matter if they're prohibitively hard for people to run (ie #selfhost!).

That's how most of the world's #email ended up owned by #Google and #Microsoft.

So it's almost criminal that the leading #FOSS #selfhosting platform @yunohost is only getting €9.63 a week from their #Liberapay.

We can do better! Let's make it easy for everyone to host #Mastodon, #Peertube, #Wordpress, #Pixelfed etc!

Go, #Fediverse! Go!

If you want to discover free music that you can stream, download and share legally, you can find lots of it at Jamendo:

jamendo.com/

Because the tracks are licensed under #CreativeCommons, you can legally share them on any service you want such as @funkwhale

(Remember to include the CC licence type when you share a track, you can see this next to a track's download link).

Any other suggestions for sources of free legal music?
