Update: Remembered that most sites have an official branding package, which Mastodon does: https://joinmastodon.org/#credits
Is there an official Mastodon icon for adding to a personal website? Or even better a @fosstodon one?
It is proven! I am nathanblaubach on Keybase: https://keybase.io/nathanblaubach/sigchain#74c5e601176b411ea16ef07665b1649a3344deac4ea6507013ed8a0b22ec3c970f
So, if you need another reason to get Alexa out of your home or keep it out, here you go:
"Amazon employees are listening to, transcribing and even joking about the private conversations customers have with Alexa on their smart speakers." https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/amazon-listens-to-conversations-through-alexa-qh328jlw0
When #Matrix comes back online, or even before, anyone using matrix.org as a homeserver should strongly consider switching to another instance (https://www.hello-matrix.net/public_servers.php) or starting their own.
The de facto centralization of Matrix is what's preventing you from chatting now. Promote the decentralization and federation that worked well for the Mastodon fediverse by leaving matrix.org.
PSA: The Keybase integration isn't complete. It's ok. Breathe. https://mastodon.social/@keybase/101903490896785857
And so we enter the #fediverse. Support for all instances is coming soon. We're just waiting on more of the Keybase community to update to the latest versions so all of these new proof options will look good in the UI. Thanks for your excitement!
The #Keybase proofs system is launching tomorrow. I've just finished a couple of last-minute patches, need to get them in, release rc2, so that 2.8.0 can launch tomorrow as well
And oof, I have not written a release blog post yet
Cool code snippet tool I had forgotten about:

Daddy-Daughter time: teaching her the names of the hardware components.
@blaubachn yup, it's possible but not hooked up yet. it's very resource intensive though, so we're not going to be able to provide it on matrix.org (but modular.im should provide it quite shortly)
Anyone know whether group video sessions can be recorded in Riot.im? @matrix
When you see members of a group doing or saying awful things, pause for a moment. Do not generalize. You may be looking at extremists of that group, or in fact people or (if you’ve seen it online) bots pretending to be members of that group to stir up conflict. The group at large may be very different.
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
