Two great things you can do to make the fediverse more diverse and interesting:

1) USE LOTS OF HASHTAGS. It's not spammy! It helps people find stuff they're interested in, since the search is intentionally limited to tags to prevent abuse.

2) BOOST THE GOOD STUFF. It gets it into new federated timelines, which is vital for smaller instances with fewer connections. It also helps with hashtag searches, since they only bring up toots known to your instance via follows and boosts.

No one company should "win" when it comes to the safety of self-driving cars.

We have a right to demand that self-driving car manufacturers take reasonable steps to help make the technology safer for everyone, such as sharing incident sensor data. eff.org/deeplinks/2018/03/some

For a messaging app to be truly secure, it needs more than good tech. Developers of any “secure” messaging app must have a solid history of responding to technical problems and legal threats. eff.org/deeplinks/2018/03/beyo

If your business depends on Facebook, or any other algorithm-controlled social media, you're - sooner or later - gonna have a bad time.
