Oh wow.

"Finnish astrophotographer J-P Metsavainio has released a Milky Way photo that took him nearly 12 years to create. The 1.7-gigapixel image has a cumulative exposure time of 1,250 hours."

This is a long shot, but I want to put the power of social media and federation to the test.

My son wants to become a commercial airline pilot when he’s grown up. It would be awesome if we could find a commercial pilot in the fediverse that we can follow and ask questions of.

If everyone who reads this could boost it, it would be much appreciated and it would mean the world to my son if he could get in touch with a real-life commercial pilot! ✈️

There go the fact-checkers again--marking my post as false! Who am I to believe? The Facebook fact-checkers or Dr. David Samadi, M.D, and the guy who invented the PCR tests? The Lancet even pointed this out.

Anyone watching these impeachment debates in the House? Weird how we can throw an impeachment together in a day or two but can’t give Americans any financial relief for ~8 months

Dear #Mozilla, I fully agree with your message and this is why I am not giving you my money anymore. Because you are not the #Internet and I really don't like how you started speaking of yourself as such.

You make a browser. This is great. Diversity among browsers is essential and indeed keeps the Internet alive and humane. However instead of concentrating on this very important mission you are uniquely positioned to perform you changed your focus to populism while your top management pay figures go into seven digits. This I don't like as well. #Firefox needs love and attention but instead you cut developers and engage into distracting nonsense no one asked you for. You even managed to break Firefox Mobile. After your redesign it is just shadow or what it used to be.

Instead I am giving to someone else. It is David Morley who runs diasp.org - my first Diaspora pod. It is the Dr.Quadragon who runs one of the largest Russian Mastodon instances. It is Funkwhale, great free music sharing and streaming platform. It is Phillip Kulin who runs Russian Internet Censorship Registry Watch. I am not giving much but I hope this trickle helps to fuel real life of the Internet - people who create and support things.

I used to give you, Mozilla, but I am becoming more and more disappointed lately. Sorry. And again when salaries of your execs are described with words "instant inter-generational wealth" it seems to me you can do fine without my $5.

Good post/message! Too bad the site still uses Google Fonts 🤷‍♂️
