Hello I decided to place my personal Mastodon account at Fosstodon,

I'm excited to join the community here to learn more about projects.

I'm the founder of @Openwords

And I have a variety of interests in

I also run an English language editing group for nonnative English speakers.

I'm located on island 🇭🇰 & 🇺🇸

Feel free to say hello!


Welcome to Fosstodon! I noticed that the openwords website currently reads 'webapp best with Chrome browser'. A browser independent webapp would be nice.


I think it actually works well with firefox and others. We should probably fix that comment. Thank you for the suggestion.

And btw, as time goes on, we get more and more radical about independence, and interoperability with *fully* open tech.

Thank you DistroJunkie... I have to ask, do you have a favorite distro right now?

@Marc @Openwords
Like many things, it depends. If I'm proselytizing Linux to a Windows user, it's Linux Mint. A Mac user, it's Elementary. My home machine right now has been running Bunsenlabs for a while. I've really become more of a 3D printing junkie than a distro junkie lately.

@DistroJunkie @Marc @Openwords
@DistroJunkie @Marc @Openwords BunsenLabs was a long time distro on one of my weak Samsung Atom processor machines (1.66GHz, 1GB RAM - later maxed to 2!). Very happy with how it totally outperformed Win7!
Later lost it's power adapter :/

Welcome @Marc :) Openwords looks cool, thanks for your work on that!

welcome! 👋
I think you won't be disappointed by your instance choice. I have met many very nice people from there.

Thank you @mike
We're working toward getting @Openwords to maturity and the information and guidance we'll get just from following along with the discussion here is very helpful. #Openwords would fit nicely into the #FOSS infrastructure if we can advance it a little further. @Marc

@Marc @Openwords Welcome marc. Happy to see you here. Thanks for your great works.
