- Google forces DRM into web standards to limit your access to content based on money, location, & software.

- Google now is blocking ALL YouTube content from competing platforms.

- But Google supports #NetNeutrality because "freedom".

If we are to live in the cyberpunk world, at least give us the badass company names.

Don't forget: if you join this week or give a loved one an FSF membership by 12/9, you're supporting #freesoftware twice - a generous donor is matching all donations up to $10,000! https://u.fsf.org/2dp

🇬🇧 We no longer federate with counter.social.

This means it is now impossible to see statuses, to follow and to interact in any way with people on this instance.

counter.social blocks whole countries they considerate hostile and we believe this is a huge error. This is pure racism, tainted with hate and we don't want to promote this behavior.

counter.social is the only blocked instance on xyz. While we want to be as open as possible to all opinions, we don't want to be open to fascists.

Okay everyone, if you want to see the new standard I'm working on (Linked Data Capabilities) it's available here: w3c-ccg.github.io/ld-ocap/

I tried to include a gentle introduction-by-narrative-example, which I think was also very helpful in ActivityPub.

Very interested in feedback if you have it!

okay so Plan Sweden is sunk by the requirements for a Swedish Visa

So once more

IF YOU CAN HELP ME FIND A SAFE PLACE TO STAY, PLEASE DO

I AM CURRENTLY IN THE ANN ARBOR AREA BUT AM WILLING TO RELOCATE AS LONG AS THE DESTINATION IS TRANS FRIENDLY AND IDEALLY HAS SOLID PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

I posted a multi-msg reply rant to Grove Norquist on birdsite and it seems to be going viral. 😮

I made a flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.

only recently did i realize the 'confederacy' probabky from con + federal ... against federal.

Since we are pro federation here, maybe birdsite + friends could be called the confederacy??

🤔🤔🤔🤔

Decentralize birbsite.

Decentralize YouTube.

Decentralize Slack, Discord, Messenger, Gchat.

Federate the planet.

Can we make this (or another post)
get +500 boosts, proofing that the argument to stay away from the #fediverse because one can here only reach out to a few is completly wrong?

Wondering how high the reach of this post is?

Well, we don't know. We don't track the users.

You only can see the boosts/fav/reply.
If that's a lot, it reached a lot.

If that made one rethink their opinion here you go:

Shameless plug tootin' time!

I'm making an 80's style text-parser adventure game in my own engine. It can do stuff the Sierra AGI engine cannot, like parallax 3D rotation.

Questions, Follows and Boosts always welcome! 😄

i think the forms/controls and visualizations are still desktop relevant tho. it might not be the best one, just the one i'm most familiar with and i know the license is good.

are you familiar with atomic design? might be a good way to arrange the elements

'down by the bay' is a dreadful song to have stuck in your head :-/

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you
