@atomicpoet as much as I appreciate (I honestly do!) the huge impact @Gargron and @dansup had, there were thousands of developers and designers that joined and helped, and then thousands of instance admins and moderators and deeply involved fedizens that helped make fedi into the bustling and fabulous phenomenon that it is.
I don't wan to minimize Gargron's or dansup's contributions here, but it's important to recognize all the others too.
PSA: @fosstodon is a fantastic Mastodon server. The site is reliable and responsive. Their Code of Conduct is solid. They're well funded. Their excess funds are donated to other fantastic projects.
It's a good server with good morals.
For all of these reasons, I recommend considering supporting them.
More info at https://hub.fosstodon.org/
I am five years or 86 releases old and I speak 45 languages. Over 150 people have collaborated on my code. All of that code is of course open source!
New people, welcome to Mastodon and the Fediverse!
Here's how to get started:
2. Find out your Mastodon/Fediverse address so you can share it with friends (https://mstdn.social/@feditips/107248252715651564)
3. Invite people to join you on here by telling them to go to https://joinmastodon.org and click on "Get Started". It doesn't matter if they join a different server because the servers talk to each other (here's a bit more of an explanation https://mstdn.social/@feditips/107021461185874594)
4. Find out what the Fediverse is (https://mstdn.social/@feditips/107044096139091624)
5. Find out why Mastodon being on so many different servers/instances is a really good thing (https://mstdn.social/@feditips/107083735491993183)
6. If you see anything nasty, you can report it to your friendly server admin (https://mstdn.social/@feditips/106540152842368591)
7. You can (sort of) verify your account if you own a website (https://mstdn.social/@feditips/106274105538953001)
If you have any questions, @ me or DM me!
As one of the main Mastodon developers, I can't promise you that Mastodon will be a complete and exact Twitter replacement for you, but it may fit your use-cases, at least it does for me.
Just keep in mind that it is not exactly the same thing, some core design decisions are different (there isn't an unique centrally-governed website, but many interconnected servers operated by different individuals and organizations) and thus the tradeoffs can be different as well.
While I personally don't think Mastodon should aim at being an exact replacement to Twitter, I do hope Mastodon can be useful to more people wanting an alternative to Twitter! And I know there are lots of room for improvement, on things we do know, and on things we don't.
Also keep in mind that Mastodon is developed by only two core developers payed through a non-profit funded through sponsorship, grants and donations, so please be patient!
Our ProtonMail Android app is now open source! Starting today, every app you use to access Proton services are open source and have passed an independent security audit. You can find all the details here. https://protonmail.com/blog/android-open-source/
In about 6 hours, I'll do a shorter and more beginner-friendly #rustlang stream on multiple lifetimes, strings, and some generics. As usual, the stream will be live on https://twitch.tv/jonhoo and https://youtube.com/c/JonGjengset/live, and I'll upload it afterwards. While it'll be *more* beginner-friendly than my usual streams, it won't be *introductory*. I'll assume that you've read the Rust book, and that you have written some Rust code. But as always, anyone is welcome, so stop by even if just to say hi ❤️
The ProtonMail Bridge app is now open source! It has also passed an independent security audit. You can find the full details and links to the code and audit report here. https://protonmail.com/blog/bridge-open-source/
Starting today, you can now preorder the PinePhone UBports Community Edition: a production model #PinePhone preloaded with UBports (Ubuntu Touch), with a custom backplate to match!
So you don't like Google stuff? How about getting ALL of our network's content on an open source platform like @LBRYio@twitter.com?
