Recently I had a discussion with a friend, saying he doesn't care whether Google et a. got his data or not. What should they do? He would not be of interest to them.

Although I'm privacy-aware, I'm bad at such discussions. I argued with annoying advertisement, which he rejected with "I just won't pay attention to that". Fair point, though someday ads might be more intrusive.

He does not violate law, he is no activist. Arguing with corrupt governments would be a stretch. What would you say?

Hello everybody.
I tried Mastodon half a year ago, because I really liked the concept of the decentralization and I am trying to get away from the big corporations, but failed miserably, so now I am trying again. I hope this time it makes click in my head.
Somethings about me, I am a 17 year old interested in tech, linux, OSS, servers and coding. I started using linux roughly a year ago and would describe myself as a beginner to intermediate user.
So yeah, thats about it :D

How do you type on a PC Keyboard?

Hi everyone! I'm a casual programmer and tech enthusiast hoping to get more involved in the FOSS world. I've been a FOSS user for quite a while and I think it's about time I started contributing to the community.

My main social media is Reddit but I'm trying to explore more privacy-friendly alternatives. Never been a big Twitter guy and hope Mastodon can change my mind.

My other interests include philosophy, math, and history. Hoping to get to know everyone better!

Hi, I'm new on fosstodon but It's not my first time on a Mastodon Instance. I really apreciate the work that open source communities are doing and social media on the fediverse to take back the control of our privacy.
I'm a studiying software engineer, I'm learning to code and a I'm linux user (Fedora). I would like help more FOSS projects.

I really really disdain the podcasts that go spotify exclusive. I bet there's good money in it, no doubt but it's still selling out

No matter how many opinions there are about vs , I like the fact that we all play in the same FOSS-sandbox. ✌️
