"[free software is] free as in 'free puppies', not 'free beer'. Adopting open source solutions, like adopting a puppy, involves some time spent on care and feeding."
, found this passage yesterday while reading Trevor Owens's "the theory and craft of digital preservation" and I won't stop thinking about it for a while, probably
@flancian yes. Mastodon is a river. I don't see it being useful for longer, deeper interactions, but for spreading packets of information through a larger network in a more ephemeral way.
I am really rather surprised no one is talking about #RCS #UniversalProfile here on the fediverse. It is a mainstream attempt at huge scale federation across the world and they already have an implementation of E2EE (well the google goons do at least)
I assume the whole standard is probably horrid and based on some asinine XML or something but regardless people should be talking about it here since its in our "federated territory" or whatever you want to call it
I'm really happy to share that I've transfered the #ForkAwesome project to a group of very passionate individuals. Thanks to their patience and motivation, there is a future for set of #Icons that grew so important for a lot of people in the #floss community. Special thanks to @douginamug who made this transition process so smooth and for driving the community. Follow the project at @forkawesome and on https://forkaweso.me
the fossil power and fuel industry, as well as their regulatory partners in government, would like to thank you for getting very mad at #bitcoin instead.

TIL that the hash sign—#—can also be referred to as an 'octothorpe'
