Regarding political aspect you can check https://salut-a-toi.org/social_contract.html . We try to think about implications of technology on our daily life ("technology is not neutral"), we are organized in non-profit association collegial committee, and we generally try to debate about these things.

Still I can very much see there being a market for that.
Some good points for XMPP:
Finished the last batch of Vahdam’s Second Flush Enigma Assam #tea.

@Gargron Regarding using React.JS – you are aware of its overly restrictive patent license?
Sorry about the multi-toots, I received 500 errors and didn’t see them in my Home column.
@Triplefox, sorry to bug you again …but do I get it right that the “Public timeline” on this Mastodon instance shows the public posts from **all** the Mastodont, StatusNet/GNU Social servers that have federation enabled?
If so, does it do that also for other federated servers? There is/was a plan to federate between GNU Social, Red, Friendica and Diaspora AFAICR.
Hmmm, is there any markup for Mastodon? MarkDown it ain’t, I noticed :]
