Ambiguous situation in Poland.
Ruling party proposes an additional ad tax on media outlets, supposedly to reach to the pocket of Google and Facebook. Normally I would agree wholeheartedly. With both hands. The problem is that the vast majority of the projected income will come from local private media outlets, which in turn will fund government mouthpiece - public TV. And it just got 500 EUR of government subsidy. What a strange times. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-56007942
I am Ana & new here. Not IT actually, but a filmmaker and a language teacher. I am just looking for something alternative to Facebook. www.cookiesandmovies.com #introductions
#introductions Howdy, my name's Jake and I've been a FOSS user for about a year now (Running GNU/Linux) and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and community so far. I've followed a few prominent FOSS youtubers such as @firstname.lastname@example.org and @christitus which has led me here! I hope to learn more and make some like-minded friends through Fosstodon. Best wishes to everyone!
So, you've joined Fosstodon and are wondering, "now, how does this work?"
One thing that sets Fosstodon apart from traditional social media outlets (and some other instances) is the community's willingness to help and offer valuable feedback. This is especially true with new members.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
