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.
marketing chief of purism is giving support to ICE
Remember, that racist agency that even imprisons children.
He made a video commenting on the removal of CTO from ICE from a #github conference.
He uses following argumentation:
- let's leave politics aside
- if left or right I don't care
- you cannot make everyone happy
- if you remove someone from a conference, more people will be mad at you
- ignore the critism, host anyone
this is the story of oportunism.
this is the story of marketing as a means
the video is sponsored by #purism. And his followers on twitter do have a clear position, that support his view points.
Those are the ones purism is advertised to.
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
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
The first iteration of the #retribute app is now officially ready 🎉
It's a web application that connect to your Mastodon account(s) and suggest you creators to tip based on your activity.

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
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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TC1eUpkOgS8
Hi people! It's time for a #ForgeFed update :)
I've been working on thoroughly documenting the details of federation in Vervis: https://dev.angeley.es/s/fr33domlover/r/vervis/s/FEDERATION.md
I started working on ticket federation! https://dev.angeley.es/s/fr33domlover/r/vervis/s/src/Vervis/Handler/Ticket.hs#L-289
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
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.
