I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative. Even when doing it for "good" like ridiculing awful comments, you are giving awful comments more eyeballs that way. No quote toots. Thank's
Running Sublime Text 3 on my Chromebook. What a crazy world we live in.
It's also wild to see actors from the Spartacus series play different Roman characters--the Spartacus German turncoat is Caesar, and the guy who plays Pompeii was a Roman noble in Spartacus.
The Roman Empire Season 2 on Netflix is great, but it's also taking some serious liberties with accepted truth vs. legend. That's the nature of TV, I guess.
Mastodon is great for defeating #censorship . Right Now I'm in a hotel room in mainland #China. Connected to the hotel wifi, and without any VPN, I'm still connected to the world. OTOH, Twitter / Facebook / Google are all blocked by the infamous great #firewall of China.
Mastodon is not the first online ecosystem for any of us, it’s a chance at a reboot.
So it’s pretty rad that our consensus answer to the question “If given a chance, what would I have done differently online to make for a better future?” is a resounding “be authentic and kind and seek connection with others.”
Hey, #Keybase users: If you'd like to see Mastodon support in Keybase (which is just *perfect* in a federated network to verify people) and have a GitHub account: make sure to voice your wish, +1ing this comment on the related issue. That might make it happen!
Why isn't the Mastodon introduction post called tootorial?
Happy Birthday, Debian. 🎂 🎉 🎈
25 years old.
Ian Murdock announced #Debian on August 16th 1993. The first release, 0.01, was made the next month, on September 15th.
Congratulations & thanks to the Debian volunteers, past and present, for making it such a fantastic distro. Here's to the next 25 years.

There should be a global 'awareness' week for developers. For a week reduce your RAM to 2 GB, disable all cores except 2, downscale your resolution to 1366x768 and cap your internet at 1 Mbps (or less for mobile developers)...
Maybe, just maybe we will start to have less crappy, bloated software.
