Hey, please take note that one of the nicest meeting around FLOSS for graphics is happening in Sevilla, Spain next year. It's called Libre Graphics Meeting. Don't miss it. Full of friendly people. Website is up. You'll definitely hear me speak more about it as we get closer to it. http://libregraphicsmeeting.org/ #LGM #LGM18
Some folks on birdsite are tagging our project account in tweets like "hey jack twitter should copy this thing mastodon does". The idea that this is merely about features is short-sighted. Twitter will never, ever, ever be your friend. They are the shareholders' friend, not yours. No feature will let you see what their engineers are working on, what's under the hood. No feature will fix their headquarters in the US following and enforcing US laws and customs worldwide.
