Pinned toot

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 fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom. Our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. RMS does not speak for these values.

I don't want to support Amazon but there's literally no tech store within easy distance and I need something specific: A Leftist Hacker Horror Story

"bitcoin is converting capitalism directly into climate change" - Harald Lesch

tech people: language does not structure how you think or what you can conceive in any way and that is why i should not make any effort to rid my vocabulary of sexism or ableism

also tech people: and this is why C++ is better than JavaScript

9 is out!
Creating polls, improved search, always expand content warnings, and more!
Read the full changelog here:

i've defended rms' pedantry
i believe in free software
i believe copyleft is essential
i believe AGPL3 is the best license

i disagree with those who say "software freedom isn't important these days" or that ease of use is more important

but every time RMS makes the news he undermines the FSF and the free software movement 🤦‍♂️

i just e-mailed them to discontinue my recurring donation and told them why

gonna increase my donation to software freedom conservancy instead

If you want to steward an ActivityPub Conference, you have to prioritize accessibility.

Not everyone can fly or drive to the location.

Some ideas to improve accessibility:

- Adopt Code of Conduct.

- Accept pre-recorded talks.

- Prioritize diversity over clout.

- Stream the conference live.

Ishara is designed to be incredibly efficient given these constraints:

- it does not use SQL, but instead a journaled log-structured database built on top of rocksdb

- the database itself can be encrypted when hitting the disk

- it stores as little remote profile data as necessary

- no shared timelines of any kind, only your personal inbox and outbox.

- no web client by default (you will be able to bring a Pleroma FE or Mastodon client if you wish, but API coverage is limited to essentials)

- static html for profile pages, no JavaScript, profile pages can be disabled

- the entire thing can be locked down to require OCAP or signed fetch

- user blocks work like in Pleroma but this doesn't matter because Ishara does not have a concept of remote profiles anyway

- an MRF like framework is planned but will likely use Lua or similar instead of forcing C++ usage

- config file for admin, no web admin

- planned uses: personal instances, IoT, etc.

Introducikg triple check: people now see if people have seen the double check

"npm is not a benevolent institution. It cannot be one. The possibility of it being that ended the day its owner took VC funding instead of putting it into a foundation or some other form of community ownership. That decision turned npm into a financial instrument."

This weekend, I discovered the illustrated children's book T-Rex Time Machine. Lots of the children's books I saw had weird/uncomfortable/neoliberal/antiquated messages about manners or love or society, but not T-rex Time Machine.

Within the first three pages, the t-rexes have eaten a time traveling scientist come to colonize the past. They then travel to our present and marvel at the way food is everywhere, always. They eat everything they want for free, until the cops come to stop them. The dinos then throw boiling cup noodle on the police and evade arrest, fleeing back to their time machine.

Honestly, what heroes. #BraverThanTheTroops

Fash prick sharing this pic to make fun of anti-fascists without realizing how awesome it shows we are. They will never understand and this is why we will win.
