BREAKING: ICANN has voted to REJECT the sale of the .ORG registry to private equity firm Ethos Capital. This is a major victory for the millions of nonprofits, civil society organizations, and individuals who make .ORG their home online. #SaveDotOrg icann.org/news/blog/icann-boar t.co/sFLcwZqU1B

@kirch Anyone who pokes fun at you for using e.g. a self-hosted WordPress instead of Medium has their priorities way out of whack

The more I use products, the happier I feel with myself. The fact that there's no cost involved is just bonus and rarely enters my mind. The biggest "get" is the peace of mind of knowing their are millions of eyes looking over the code.

I have a metric ton of respect for @schestowitz . He is consistent in what he espouses and that is impressive. For real. . .he doesn't embrace a personality of cult on anything. His positions are well-reasoned and rooted deeply in principle. Proud to follow and hope to follow his example.

So stoked that my favorite radio station, @RadioWhatever is now on Mastodon! What a great fit! They TOTALLY get the privacy, corporate-free ethos that so many of us hold so dear! No copyrights, no licensing, no fees, logins, no data to worry about getting stolen, and no ads! All the artists are independent and Creative Commons! Let's give these guys some love! Give them a follow and a listen! radiowhatever.com

Seriously considering a total abandonment of Twitter. Really trying to move to a true open source lifestyle and to move away from corporate overlords. As @schestowitz likes to say, "social control media".

Love this station and what they stand for so much!
