@root Hiya, just checking out if you can see what I'm randomly typing :oh_no:

@selea @admin Thanks! Nothing yet so far, probably my lacking skills, will continue.

@admin trying out to connect to a Drupal-instance for the sake of testing :oh_no:

@benis Understandable! This was a major point of discussion (and rightly so) during the 2nd webinar: Mastodon is *not* the fediverse.

But we will continue to raise the point, which is essential to understand, that no single tool or solution should be placed above others.

And for anyone who just wants to see the many developers & contributors show their magic, join the conference at 14:00 (it's BigBlueButton) ->

Hey #fediverse, does anyone here know of any paper that looks into what 3rd party code is used in government applications? Like including #GA or #GTM in the applications for the postal office.

Hm... this would make a great website... 🤔

We're already updating the agenda page with new data from this morning's session.

We are also grateful for the many poignant questions asked & points raised by enthusiasts and advocates like @tfardet, @sl007, @petros, @naturzukunft, @pukkamustard, @Castopod, @m3me and many more.
