J'ai cru m'étouffer en apprenant la consommation électrique de ces horribles écrans publicitaires numériques qui envahissent nos espaces publics (au minimum 6818KWh/an). J'ai donc été regarder notre consommation à la maison... et là :

I just realized: One thing I'm missing from the Fediverse are event calendars.
I'm currently in a group of people planning a climate protest, and we're using Facebook to post events there for people to subscribe to.
I'm not aware of any federated social network / tool where I could post a calendar event and people could subscribe to it.
That would be a really useful feature to get more people off Facebook.

It is really quite damning.

* Facebook deliberately obscured from users what information they were collecting about them & how to opt out

* Facebook used its monopoly to cripple competing applications and services

* Facebook signed agreements to acquire data other app developers collected in exchange for some of its own

* Companies could circumvent user permissions by signing an agreement with Facebook

Don’t use Google AMP

“Google AMP is bad news for how the web is built, it’s bad news for publishers of credible online content, and it’s bad news for consumers of that content. Google AMP is only good for one party: Google.” –

“If I had my way, Mobile Safari would refuse to render AMP pages. It’s a deliberate effort by Google to break the open web.” –

I joined mastodon and loved the generally friendlier atmosphere (which I realize has not exactly been everybody's experience here)

But the longer I've used it, the more I've realized how much I love the freedom from ads, trackers, and feed algorithms
