I am thinking about creating a personal blog. Which platform would you recommend for someone with zero experience?

“The easiest emotional state to generate algorithmically is tribal outrage. It’s a simple and primal emotion. We, as the tech industry, have built a model that we make money when we piss people off. And everyone’s pissed off now, we’ve made a lot of money and people are like, what went wrong? Well, everything went exactly as planned.”

“Like the majority of Google’s privacy pushes that we’ve seen until now, the FLoC proposal isn’t as user-friendly as you might think. For one thing, others have already pointed out that this proposal doesn’t necessarily stop people from being tracked across the web, it just ensures that Google’s the only one doing it.”

Switching notes from OneNote to Joplin made me realize something that I didn't know I needed: markdown syntax for my notes.

Does anyone know any good replacement to discord? I have tried Element, but I had some connection problems when chatting with a friend

I Installed Ubuntu for the first time this weekend.

My first impressions, as someone that have only used Windows, are very positive. Using the Superbutton (Windows Key) for multitasking is very intuitive. And found myself using the terminal more than the Ubuntu Store to install programs, which seemed more pratical (and cool haha)

Hi, everyone!

I have just joined mastodon and I am still habituating myself.

Joined Fosstodon because I am trying to learn and know more about FOSS and though it would be a perfect way of doing that.

My interest about this topic emerged when I started to read some articles about privacy, which lead me to Reddit subs like r/privacy and r/privacytools and then a whole new world just appeared before my eyes.

Hope I can eventually contribute to this community!
