Today is #InternetDay… To mark this auspicious occasion, here’s David Bowie speaking to Jeremy Paxman in 1999 about the "unimaginable" effects on society it was going to have.

Seeking a little fediverse advice/learning use-cases... I would like to discover and follow interesting photographers on . Since that's part of the fediverse, I can follow anyone from this account (awesome!). But how do I browse and discover (without creating a pixelfed account)?
What do y'all do? Multiple accounts and apps or discover with specific accounts on specific platforms and then follow from a main fediverse identity?

@cygnusx11 I'm using Fedora with Sway (Wayland i3)

I've really had no reason to change, the package repository is packed and updates are frequent - Never had a problem and it feels very stable.

I continue to hear great things about the AUR so I'm tempted to switch..

@sir Really enjoyed the video at the end there too, going to try the email workflow.

Convergence improvements in Phosh 0.5.0 are really nice. Great work by @agx and the rest @purism's crew!

My first video in November is going to finally tackle the subject. Before that, I am going to attempt writing my next update, do some site maintenance work all from the docked @PINE64 .

One of my biggest dreams is to have a smartphone that can be used as a computer when plugged into one.

If you are or are not a user, please consider taking the signal user survey. Signal does not collect analytics on their users to respect privacy and I appreciate them transparently asking for the feedback instead. More information on their blog entry:

Also, if you haven't tried signal in the last year+ they have made significant user experience improvements (new features, ease of use, stability).

Svelte: It's not rocket science

React: But it can be if we try

@lopeztel Do it! It'll force good FOSS habits upon you :p

@urusan @Logical_Error Great explanation, thanks for your input!

Completely agree, working with teams on Microservices is significantly easier than a monolith.

Just have to get your interfaces nailed down and we'll defined from the beginning.. Which is easier said than done.

@Logical_Error I fell into Backend Engineering, building and managing Microservices with Kubernetes - With a touch of Devops too.

You might find that interesting, it's really rewarding.

@artyr3 That's an interesting idea, Although the whistle-blower may as well leak anonymously right?

@Logical_Error Gerne! What kind of role are you looking for?
