@xrevan86 Back in the olden days we could just ... disagree about something, without having to erase the other person from existence on your server or whatever (crazy, I know!)

Speaking of and .
Some say the new redesign quite reminds current .
VK was born by copying Facebook idea and refining it: simple interface, easy to find settings, non-algorithmic feed, payments (as of lately). Now, perhaps, Facebook people copy certain solutions they liked in VK.

Rule #1: Steal like an artist.

Many users in my timeline voiced concerns over Librem deactivating abuse reports. Only one or two complained about rejecting non-public messages. Logically, I understand the decision to label Mastodon a place for public speech only. Saying it's private is a bit of an overstatement.

Yet somehow, that makes me feel a stranger who needs to whisper in one's ear in a place where everyone talks through a loudspeaker. 馃え

Deliciously light, with creamy theme inside. Will not meltdown like chocolate (and other unreliable things).

#framasoft is an organisation that works on education, development, funding and hosting of #freesoftware.

For their hosting they have their own software stack, and branded them as frama...

For every service they offer, they explain what software they have used to do so.
They do this also when they changed parts of the code and when they have their own branding.

Sometimes they also help to fund the development as they did for #peertube.

That's the kind of freesoftware culture I love!

and see, how much they have to offer:

Vier theme is clean, minimalistic, and in my opinion looks more modern than default Frio theme. The only thing it needs is to be finished / polished (

Hey, y'all, #WeDistribute is looking for writers and knowledge experts to contribute articles for continued coverage of the fediverse and decentralized communication systems in general.

I've been doing it all on my own for quite a while, it's hard to do everything yourself, and there are probably domain experts out there that know way more than I do about specific platforms!

After years of successful software development, the FreedomBox Foundation is proud to announce that sales of the first commercially available #FreedomBox have launched.

We've reached a point where we'd like to start #hiring developers to work on the #WriteFreely roadmap 馃捇 :writefreely2:

This would be remote, contract-based work for now, with a chance to go full-time later in the year (assuming all continues going well). You'd be creating free / open source software.

I'll have more details soon, but especially if you're a #Go / #Golang developer and want to work on a growing #fediverse project, I'd love to hear from you!

So this is real, JetBlue using facial recognition to replace boarding passes:

Where they've got your photo from? US Department of Homeland Security apparently.

Instagram is testing posts with the number of likes hidden for non-author. Finally, a useful experiment! I wonder if their algorithms will still depend on that number internally. What do you think about it? Would or would you not like hiding star count (and why)? What about hiding boost count?

As @amolith noticed, Cloudflare joined . Not really, only Tw crossposting. From the discussion ( I found out the one and only "self-hosting" solution uses Cloudflare by default (?) It somewhat explains the ~232 (according to ) Mastodon servers.

馃 Excellent time to remind of last year's research by @leah:

A similar research for the greater Fediverse will be very insightful.
