It pained me to realize that when installing on a based system with synaptic in 2020, you get a version dating back to 2015. What can a person do to help move that up to the 2019 version.

BTW, you can get an Appimage from their website that is up to date.

In this blogpost I'm trying to explain ActivityPub and it's advantages to a more general public.

For people that use Spotify it might be interesting to learn that (to my knowledge) Deezer has a larger library (56 million tracks) than Spotify and doesn't use DRM.

In early 2017 I was tired, and disappointed, and about to leave federated networks. Then one amazing Fediverse user reminded me of the remedy:

"Learn to rest, not to quit".

Perhaps someone here needs this advice now.

I'm going to bed.

I would be grateful if any of you could help solve the problem of slow boot up without reinstalling the system.

In this small blog post I challenge the reader to turn the back on Instagram, YouTube, Spotify and Blogger and use alternatives Pixelfed, PeerTube, FunkWhale and WriteFreely instead. Seems like an appropriate start of this decade.

The all important Internet Archive has reached it's fundraising goal but it's still possible to donate.

In 2019 approximately €160k were donated to 652 creators through Liberapay. We hope to do even better in 2020 and we wish you all a #HappyNewYear!

#YoMigroAMastodon or "I Migrate to Mastodon" is the top trending Twitter hashtag right now in Spain, and number 37 worldwide, following more censorship of leftist content and suspension of accounts on birdsite.

Give it another few years, folks, and Twitter will be dead. They can't keep playing this game much longer. Their top trending hashtag on their own platform is one that promotes moving away from the platform, as a result of their own actions. That's... incredibly bad.

Let's show our support for our Spanish comrades, and help them find a home on the Fediverse. It's important that the transition from Twitter isn't temporary.


Muestremos nuestro apoyo a nuestros camaradas españoles y ayúdelos a encontrar un hogar en Fediverse. Es importante que la transición de Twitter no sea temporal.
