roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

The sun is shining and everyone's outside.
Cozy blanket will hide me among books and cat.
I'm not at home too.

Any plans for May 18th? The unofficial Fediverse Birthday. Is anyone planning online meetings for your local community, like @titi did for Catalan and Spanish speakers last year? Or some such thing?

Why should #developers be interested in the #Fediverse? I spoke to @darius, who (y'all probably know!) runs a Mastodon instance called Friend Camp, about why developers should experiment with open protocols like ActivityPub & how becoming a hosting provider is a way in.

Yesterday a meme incident with isCat has happened on Mastodon and it quickly escalated in very short time, Eugen even ended up joining a local Russian podcast which happened in exactly the same evening! They talked about Mastodon and Fediverse policies in general. Since a lot of people can't speak Russian, Inex and me volunteered to hardsub it. (Sadly, peertub has damaged the video files, so it took much and much longer than was expected... (also we have never done any subs before))
