> Years ago, Mark Zuckerberg made it clear that he doesn’t think is a business. “In a lot of ways, Facebook is more like a government than a traditional company,” said Mr. Zuckerberg. “We’re really setting policies.” He has acted consistently as a would-be sovereign power. For example, he is attempting to set up a Supreme Court-style independent tribunal to handle content moderation. And now he is setting up a global currency.

I applaud all the fediverse instance admins and developers who are taking a clear stand against fascism. Keep it up, and don't let the "neutral" crowd get to you.

Finally summer feels like it's jut around the corner!

Hi there! I’m from the US, and love Overwatch. When I’m not playing that or dying in school, I mess around with music production, and of course, FOSS. I’m trying to get into linux, and also learning how to re-HTML Firefox. I speak HTML and CSS, though not fluently.

Doing my toot! I'm @ToTheFarWest and I'm an Israeli high school student. I've been using Linux on my main system for 5 years now and I'm trying to replace garbage proprietary software with FOSS. Send recommendations!

@gabriel I deactivated my Reddit account some weeks ago and Google thought it was funny to close G+ so I'm done with that too (well almost). I stumbled upon Mastodon and began to like the Fediverse. So much even that I find myself a lot here.

I guess I'm also bored.

FWIW, I'm going to start to throw some old projects on GitHub at gitlab.com/gmobrien
