There's seems a lot of talk about different ptotocols for the internet with #Gemini & #Gopher coming up.
I'd be interested in peoples opinions of #hypercore, details: hypercore-protocol.org . It's built on node.js and #breakerbrowser uses the protocol to build websites distributed from your computer.
Is it a viable option?

Just dropping this idea here:

Developing a framework for push-messaging in linux-on-phone apps (like for @mobian, @purism #librem5, @postmarketOS, @PINE64 #PinePhone, @ubports #UbuntuTouch)

For Android there's the #OpenPush project trying to introduce an alternative to googles services, that also includes the possibility to self host the server component or choose a trustworthy provoder.

Basically porting that project to also work on (mobile) linux and promoting it to app-developers.

In recent years, Oakland has cut shootings in half—not by arresting more people, but by investing in social services and helping people build relationships with others in their community.

Each year we interpret the stats with shock and awe regarding Linux market share on desktops. Then we proclaim that next year will be the "year of the Linux desktop". Instead of this irrationally insane hope, we need to address the issue: is too fragmented with too many distros, subsystems, boot loaders, package managers, bug reporting systems, DEs. If we could all get behind one set of standards and one distro to benchmark as standard (and advertise), only then can we gain market share.

We've had loads of new folks join Fosstodon, over the last few months. There are plenty of articles/blogs on FOSS friendly alternatives out there, and suggestions for such but, it'd be nice to hear from the community. What apps/alternatives are you using and why? What would you suggest for someone who's new to the FOSS scene? What have you discovered, based on your experiences?

Let's give our newer/unfamiliar members some community input and a few "pro tips" 😉

Gooooood Morning Fosstodon!

I'm ready to reclaim my music library, and my control along with it.

What are people using to stream their own library to multiple devices and what works well?

I'll probably want to do the same for video at some point, but less urgent. If there's something that solves both, that'd be neat though.

When a bug tracker makes me jump through hoops (#CAPTCHA) or the bug tracker is hosted by an unethical service (e.g. MS #Github or gitlab.com [#CloudFlare]):

Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:

Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.

Hello world! This is the mastodon account for , a Debian customized for mobile phones/tablets. Here, we will comment, respond and report on the development. It will also contain quite some redundancy to our content on twitter (I guess). Welcome!

Alright good folks of Mastodon and Twitter - I’m look­ing for a sim­ple-look­ing logo for Celestial. If any­one would like to vol­un­teer, please mes­sage me.

Your work will have full at­tri­bu­tion with a linkback on the site’s footer as well as the pro­jec­t’s readme.

So you have a server at home, and you're on the road. You find that your server is offline, but nobody is at home to troubleshoot. Your modem, router, or server probably just need to be rebooted, but because your server is down, you can't remote in to trigger a reboot.

How do people solve this problem?
