Hey there! I just joined this instance since I tried to self-host my own instance but since my RPI was already hosting 18 different containers, I abandoned that idea. Now I'm joining this instance :D

I doubt anyone is going to read this anyway so... :(

I'm going to share the last album of one of my favorite bands. My favorite song is the one called "Probar y Arriesgar"

The #Tusky drama stirred up again with the typical FLOSS-bros of "it's not free software", people who just want to code saying "it's a bug not a feature", and free speech extremists "screw developer speech my unprincipled take is user speech all the way".

Butt his time I can't point to the thread that I debated ALL these points because the thread owner is gone, and so is the thread.

TL;DR: It is still Free Software, it's a feature to prevent extremism growth, and developers have free speech.

I got the honor of merging this into #Tusky today \o/

We will not facilitate Gab on our app.

I'm starting to love and love more Storybooks. They have an official addon that tests the accessibility of your components.

This is great, since there's a lot of people that cares about accessibility but doesn't know how to implement it and with this plugin you can easily see what's wrong with your components and fix it (e.g. "your form is missing a label")

It would be great if it would be implemented by default thought

I love my new Sway wallpaper!! It's set using Vilhalmer's Oguri project!

"A Google employee spoke with the Bay Area Reporter on the condition of anonymity about the current mood among LGBTQ Googlers, saying by phone that, "I'm really worried that they [company leadership] don't know how unsustainable this is. They want to have it both ways: to monetize the engagement that comes from really odious content, but to bear no responsibility for it. And all of us queers who work here see how they're getting away with making money off people who hate us while doing nothing to stop them. Meanwhile, most queer creators' channels are demonetized or marked 'adult' because they use words like 'trans.' Google has no right to be at Pride. They're just capitalists. They don't care."

I love Golang's testing system. Seriously. Is the main reason why I got interested in testing my programs. Before working with Go, I knew about the importance of testing, but since it was super hard and really tedious, I always ended up not testing the stuff. Thanks Go for making it that easy! <3

Don't let anyone in the world forget that the filth are trying to put an end to #GunsDownWaterGunsUp. Ask why the government is so concerned with stopping a harmless event aimed at building community and reducing gun violence

Conservatives talk about how Black-on-Black violence is a problem that the community should stop itself, but once they do the state steps in and puts an end to it. Why?

Could it be that gang violence is a necessary facet of their broader strategy of oppression? That the Black community needs to continue to fighting itself to keep it from fighting its oppressors?

Obviously I'm not qualified to talk in depth about racial injustice, and I'm going to try and boost any PoC and Black voices I see talking about this from now on instead of saying any more, but I do know that this is something we need to be talking about. This is a clear display of the state's real goals

Hello Fedi!

Having pronouns in your bio is important to normalise the practise, not just gor trans people but everybody. If only trans people do it, then it becomes a marker of who is trans, if you all do it then it's just a standard thing. I know it can be annoying to be asked over and over yo do it, but it is important

Heyyyy, Fedi! :blobaww:

How are you? What are your hopes and dreams?

Do you need help making a project of yours more visible? What is it about?

Do you... Have a link for me? :ameowbongo:

This weekend, #Atlanta police tried + failed to shut down more than 500 people coming together to celebrate #GunsDownWaterGunsUp, a self-organized movement to end inter-community violence. But despite the attempts at a crackdown, the movement is spreading. youtube.com/watch?v=TC1eUpkOgS

Hi people! It's time for a #ForgeFed update :)

I've been working on thoroughly documenting the details of federation in Vervis: dev.angeley.es/s/fr33domlover/

@zplus, @bill_auger and I have been working on the ForgeFed spec draft, gradually updating and refining and discussing issues and feedback: notabug.org/peers/forgefed

I started working on ticket federation! dev.angeley.es/s/fr33domlover/

The SocialHub forum has been active too, despite technical issues there.

More updates soon :)

I will continue to heavily defend #Tusky and a developer's right to free speech in code. If I wanted to stuff the entirety of The Anarchist Cookbook in a HTTP header by golly I would.

If you're a free speech extremist that thinks "censorship" and "free speech" lie at opposite ends of a dichotomy, don't @ me and go read more books.

Taiwan has a 'digital minister' that actually knows here stuff, and they're setting up ways to combat disinformation (fake news) without censorship, but keeping an eye on when it arises, and fact-checking/providing correct information as fast as possible

we (and yes, i mean we) have built this together, all of us. but we have a lot more work to do. and, especially, we need to sit down and improve performance so Pleroma runs *better* on raspberry pi type devices than it does.

but i can think of dozens of examples where Pleroma is somebody's lifeline, right off the top of my head: the transgirl who has to pretend to be a boy in order to not be kicked out of their home, the neurodivergent kid who has problems making friends who understand them, the tech worker who is fighting immense depression. for all of those examples, there are many who use Pleroma to tap into a network of friends that gives them hope and meaning to continue their struggle.

when @lain first started talking about Pleroma with me, i was honestly sceptical that there would be any value in running instances at scales smaller than Mastodon instances, but that scepticism has vanished.

anyway, i frequently hear from people who have said that Pleroma has literally helped people make new friends, and that without Pleroma and the wider fediverse in general, these people would likely have already committed suicide.

when i hear things like this, it validates to me that we are doing the right thing, even if democratizing access to the fediverse means that assholes can use the software for throwaway troll instances.
