Just cleaned up my social profiles. It's so toxic.

Towards a larger personal goal of mine - "" a complete guide to prioritize and switch to the fediverse over other corporate social media.

I'll blog on this later. Perhaps a video on PeerTube? 👀

I've reduced my NewPipe (YouTube) traffic by unsubscribing 20-30 YouTube channels. Found most of them on LBRY or PeerTube and followed them there.

@lbry can you bring ActivityPub/RSS support for LBRY channels? Like how write.as does for blogs.

It doesn't matter if you consider yourself a "content creator" or if you upload videos to once in a while for whatever reason.

Please consider also uploading your content to [joinpeertube.org/], whatever instance you'd like. I assume if you're sharing your content, you probably want it to reach as many people as possible.

Let's populate the with good and original content 📽️ 📺

@alpinefolk As users, what we can do is:
- Make sure we upload our videos to peertube and not youtube
- Use invidious to watch youtube (to prevent them from collecting data and ad revenues)
- At the very least, use an ad blocker.

I have brought up an RSS-to-ActivityPub server. It can convert any RSS feed into a ActivityPub actor, so that one can follow them from Mastodon, Misskey or other ActivityPub compatible platforms to receive updates of the feed.
It's still under development so please do not abuse.
portal.0svc.com

I have modified the code so that it should be compatible with latest version of Mastodon, Pleroma and Misskey.

Feel free to report any issues on GitHub:

Friends don't let friends use GitHub.

--

With GitHubs recent push for their CLI tool over the the already ubiquitous and understood git CLI and the new certification agenda, I will be migrating and will no longer support or endorse Github.

Don't let GitHub continue to monopolise FOSS and OS communities - Move your hardwork elsewhere.

If you still use GitHub as your main place to host your projects, reconsider.

Git is made to be decentralized.

Use it.

One more thing. Avoid every service that is based in USA or complies with their law. Unless they have no info on you or can't identify you.

Nathan boosted
That's what you get for using a centralized service in the US.

Support artists who release their work for free or use DRM-free platforms like Bandcamp.

Do not support artists who lock their work behind DRMed platforms.

Vote with your wallet. Don't give people money who don't deserve it. Foster a culture of support and owning what you pay for.

"We moved to GitHub because everyone's already there"

"We shut down the mailing lists because most of our users prefer to use GitLab in their web browser"

"We're rewriting in Rust because we don't really have any non-x86_64 users"

"We're leaving IRC because Discord is more user-friendly"

What all of these arguments have in common is that they exclude people, centralize infrastructure, and eschew free software for proprietary solutions, all in the name of some ill-defined measure of "progress".

All servers for Fediverse softwares (Mastodon, Peertube, Pixelfed, etc.) are managed by people that do it only to offer an entry to the Fediverse.
These services won't track you, there is no advertisings and are fully respectful with your privacy.
You can help your favorite instance to keep working with a donation that will contribute to server charges.
They also need your help :)
