Today is FOSS-North Community Day in Gothenburg. An insanely ambitious project by @e8johan and the rest of the FOSS-North people to span several projects in several locations the day before the actual FOSS North event.

So even though its not #FollowFriday I wanna suggest @e8johan as someone to follow on Mastodon. The dude is tireless, intelligent and above all charming AF with a passion for Open Source unrivaled.

I created a GoFundMe for helping me to buy the computer at gofundme.com/for-buying-a-new-

It's for a Librem 15 version 4 (Only if I get enough funds otherwise, any other ideas are welcomed). Thanks.

Any devs interested in porting the Mastodon streaming API from Node.js to Rust?

We would likely not be able to abandon the Node.js version completely for portability's sake, but there is no reason not to have a more performant drop-in for those who can install it.

The Node.js version consumes about 1GB of RAM for 21k connections.
