It's pretty great!

Let's all be friends and figure out together how we can use these "computers" and "networks" to make the world a better place! ❤️

Happy (American) Thanksgiving, y'all.

One of the many things I'm grateful for this year is the wonderful community that we've discovered/built together. You are all great—thanks for being you!

"People are still more worried that a third-party company like #CambridgeAnalytica used facebook's data instead of what they should actually be worried about: that #Facebook had that data to begin with"

@crowbyte Cool! The midwest does have a large amount of German influence. My dad has 100% German heritage.

One more thing while we're at it. If anyone has connections to opensource projects I'd implore you to reach out and request that they start migrating or at least mirroring their presence on the fediverse (mastodon, peertube etc, etc), it just makes sense!

The more people ask the more likely it is to happen.

Hello, everyone!

Nice to be here, really love what I saw so far from Mastodon.

I am a Software Developer, living near Hamburg, Germany.
Besides that I am playing video game, love NFL football and am writing poetry from time to time as well as fictional short stories and running a personal blog (which needs more attention and love the next time) at crowbyte.org and you can find my on most social networks as crowbyte.

Looking forward to here from you all.
