I am using Mastodon and Fosstodon since a few weeks. I used to rely on a proprietary platform and so far I really enjoy Fosstodon (thanks for it).

I am working on the Elisa music player as part of the KDE project.
I am using FOSS and KDE and Debian since 2004 and a PowerPC laptop.

Unlike Doodle, Framadate respects privacy and doesn't show ads or track you.

It's made by @Framasoft and the source code is at framagit.org/framasoft/framada

El Árbol del Tule is a tree growing in Oaxaca state, Mexico, and it has the stoutest trunk of any tree in the world. Its a 35 metre tall Montezuma cypress, and its main trunk has a circumference of over 42 metres, even larger than any known giant sequoia.

It also goes by the Nahuatl name of Ahuehuete, meaning "Old man of the water". According to the local Zapotec people, it was planted 1400 years ago by a priest of Ehecatl, the Aztec wind god, named Pecocha.

New to mastodon... just learned about it and it seems like an amazing project.
It'll probably take me a while to get used to the platform 😅

I'm self-educated in tech (networking, programming, security) and have been looking to contribute to some OSS projects for a while. Hoping to contribute to the cause, and to maybe switch from my current career as a digital artist into development full-time

I have a degree in Archaeology and ancient Semitic languages. I worked with at risk kids and teens for the past 10 years. Absolutely loved it but got burned out emotionally. Currently a stay at home dad.

Let me introduce two groups.

First, OceanEditors.com (OE).
OE isn't software, but Fosstodon may still find it interesting.

OE is an English editing service for scholars. We're able to serve Chinese scholars (WeChat pay).

Our main challenge is finding clients. Any help in that regard would be appreciated.

OE does not pursue profit maximization for shareholders. Instead we provide better compensation for our editors. We aim to exit as a .
