Those who know and love Brazilian music will miss drummer, singer and composer Wilson das Neves. RIP.

Every time I see rightists trying to make their history look better by saying that Nazism was a left-wing movement I ask myself what do they have to say about Pinochet...

@nitai, tudo bem? Interessante ver essa instância aí, .gov... Ela é "publica"?

@miguel Olá, desculpe pela abordagem simplesmente por sermos os dois brasileiros, mas tenho tentado fazer meus amigos migrarem do Facebook pra cá e não está sendo fácil. Aí se houvesse uma instância com mais gente daqui do Brasil talvez animasse o pessoal. Vc administra uma? É isso?

Hey there,
What's the best mastodon client for iOS in your opinion? I'd much rather use one that's open source, by the way.
I've been using Amaroq and like it, but there are some issues when refreshing content.

Hi there! Has anyone here used Cryptomator? It ticks all boxes for me, as I have a huge Google Drive from work which I'd like to encrypt and still access from mobile but wouldn't like to have Google snooping on my files.
Any other program that does that?

Ultimately Mastodon's killer feature is that it's a public good that someone built because they thought it needed to exist and not a startup someone built because they wanted to get rich quick selling other people's data.

Why am I more concerned about corporations mining our data than govt agencies spying on us? Because corporations actually pose a threat to democracy through user profiling and all its implications.
The government itself has always been able to abuse its power and in fact it is somewhat essential to the state as we know it, but if we make the government more accountable and improve democracy, we can mitigate these factors, which leads us back to the beginning of this post.
