viral: laughing at Stallman fanboys who complain that they can't date because "Netflix and chill" requires embracing DRM and nonfree software

spiral: feeling bad that you haven't been on a date in ages, and then improving your mood by telling yourself "at least I'm avoiding JavaScript"

The Big 1.0. – Riot

Riot, the default and most mature client for #Matrix just hit 1.0, with a huge redesign <3 If you have ever checked Riot before, but didn't like the looks - please give it another try! If you haven't tried it but like things like, dunno, #Slack for example, have a try and you might be pleasantly surprised.

Decentralize your world.

There is of course #mastodon as federated social media.

There is good old #email as federated postbox (as long as not everyone uses GMail).

There is #peertube as a federated video platform.

There is #Riot / Matrix.org as federated group messaging.

There is #XMPP for federated 1on1 messaging.

And there is #nextcloud as federated cloud storage.

In theory most services are already federated. We only miss more users :)

#federation #selfhosted #privacy

Dear user of the fediverse,

today, it is my birthday. I have but one request, and I am sure you already know what it is. But, I will still choose to reiterate myself.

For my birthday, as a gift, I would like some boosts. I hope you can fulfill my request.
Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,

Evelien "Citrus" Twee

Nest Secure has an unlisted, disabled microphone

Wondering how many times this has been used before being offically activated? How many agencies knew, had access to it, etc?

The excellent Mastodon/PeerTube/Pleroma app Mastalab has changed its name to "Fedilab", to reflect that it works on many Fediverse services.

Fedilab is available through Google Play and @fdroidorg

The new site is at:
fedilab.app

Their Fediverse account remains the same though, it's still at:
@tom79

(It's also due to get PixelFed support soon.)

#HelloWorld! As active members of the open-source community, ProtonMail supports open source projects like Mastodon. Mastodon’s decentralized nature reminds us of the days when the Internet was free and not under the control of a few monopolist giants. Our followers can look forward to toots about service updates, new projects, and news on privacy.
