France's largest free software organisation @Framasoft has just launched a crowdfunding campaign for an open federated events tool, Mobilizon:
Mobilizon would replace Facebook Events and similar closed services.
It would use ActivityPub, so people would be able to organise events on the Fediverse.
You can also follow its Mastodon account here:
Are you not feeling motivated to go outside for a healthy walk? How about downloading the application StreetComplete from @fdroidorg and start helping out OpenStreetMap by adding missing data about the places around you!
I started today and it made my daily walks a lot more fun! It also motivates me to walk even more and visit new places that I wouldn't visit otherwise. :)
Mon petit doigt me dit qu'une nouvelle version de #PeerTube ne va pas tarder à sortir...

Time to announce this plan: I am working on a redesign of the joinmastodon.org server picker. I am also planning to switch out the data source from instances.social to my own API. The main reason for this is the addition of a new guarantee that I would be able to give when linking to servers from joinmastodon.org: That those servers would meet certain standards and enforce some basic rules of conduct.

nnn is fast and the interface is simple, with links traversable with hjkl and the arrow keys. Up and down scrolls through the listing, right enters a directory or opens a file, and left goes up a directory.
nnn supports batch renaming with an editor, quick pager/edit launching, archive listing, filtering, link creation, and several other useful features.

From my mum, with a hat tip to @MicroSFF
The traveler from the past was recently arrived and anxious to please.
The baby was new, and the traveler smiled eagerly. “Aww! Boy or girl?”
The parent’s look was offended, appalled, alarmed. “It will be many years before Sonoma will be making sexual choices. Why would you ask such a question now?”
In case you missed it, you can follow people across the Fediverse even if you're using a different kind of site.
For example, here's a PixelFed account:
...here's a PeerTube account...
...here's a WriteFreely account...
...here's a Plume account...
...here's a Friendica account...
...and you can follow all of them from Mastodon.
Just click on the @ link to see their profile, and then click on Follow.
