Starting to use Mastodon! Let's see how this goes; here's a quick intro: I am a #programmer, #linux user, #opensource advocate, #nlp data scientist, #language enthusiast (aka #polyglot), #dutch and #gay. I'm also into #privacy and #security. But if I don't have anything interesting to say I'll probably just post pictures of my #dog and #cat here ;)
For the holidays, you could say thank you to some of the people who write free software you use, especially software that isn't hugely popular.
Those of us who write little-known software may go for months without hearing from a user, and it can be a little de-motivating.
Hearing from someone who actually uses one's software gives an energising jolt that can carry one through several weeks of darkness and cold and wet.
Very attentive #puppies
