I've tried a lot of software because of Fosstodon that I probably wouldn't have if I didn't see so many others using it. It's been a good experience. Out of everything I've tried since joining here, I think Tiny Tiny RSS is my favorite. The powerful filters let me easily see the news I care about.

Just wanted to "reassure" you, Mastodon has no stock, sells no ads, and has no single company to be "in trouble". Twitter might be tanking, but we're all doing just fine here.

"Adobe is cutting off users in Venezuela due to US sanctions" Another example how dangerous it is to rely on proprietary and rented software. This can't happen to you if you build your business on top of #FreeSoftware which is the only software you really own. theverge.com/2019/10/7/2090403

I know there are a lot of #Python experts on the fediverse. Does anyone have great sources about the #Falcon Web Framework that I can use in my university #research project? (aside from the official website, the docs, the Github project)

Thanks for your help! ❤️
