I've started doing some hardware hacking as part of my new job, I'm amazed at what is available these days. This NodeMCU costs about $5, has built in WiFi, is programmable through the Arduino IDE and can be powered by a small solar panel. I'm blown away.

I'm interested in developing gaming applications for #blockchain like trading games with virtual cards or other online assets. Also game logic agnostic infrastructure for distributed games. My goal is to lower barriers to entry for indie developers

Hey world! I just supported Fosstodon on @Patreon. Help your instance with hosting costs by becoming a patron too.

I have absolutely no interest in or as a value store or tulip replacement.

Tell me something cool you're doing, or have seen someone doing, with that isn't just buying and selling real currencies.

We've dropped the idea of "premium" teams. From now on all teams will have access to all features, free of cost!

If you want to help with the cost of hosting, become a patron:

@cwebber I'm a couple days late, but just sent $25 to SFC and ACLU! Now time to play some tetris :D

I just backed our Octodon admin's Patreon because this pure wonderful place is worth supporting.

@mhall119 thanks Michael, we appreciate the support of you and all our other patrons!

@fosstodon @switchingsocial

It should go without saying, but please boost this toot to make more people aware of the need and the opportunity to support their Mastodon instances

I just became a monthly patron of @fosstodon

If you like Mastodon and want to see it succeed and replace Twitter, you need to support your instance too.

By helping pay for the hosting and maintenance of your instance you will not only make sure it can keep running, but you also give the admins a reason to ensure that it's run and moderated to your liking.

If you're an instance admin, let people know how to support you.

@kev @switchingsocial

Hey @kev is there a way I can financially support fosstodon? I like it and want it to stick around, so I'm willing to throw a few bucks towards the hosting cost

Things I *don't* like about #Mastodon so far:
- it feels very, very white dominated, with little visible #POC presence (at least compared to the bird site).
- I actually really miss the preview cards for links on the bird site. They worked really well for visual people like me.
- it's almost impossible to preview another instance without signing up first.

There's these studies about how once you commit to an opinion in front of someone you're less willing to back down from it even in the face of new insights; and online in 2018 has this culture where people rush to comment on everything that happens as fast as possible, you know? Is that a good combination?

We've added a new Do Not Track feature for our privacy concerned users! This will prevent from using Google Analytics, as well as social media sharing code, from every page you visit on the site.

While this reduces functionality of the site, and it means we lose visibility on how those people are using it, privacy is an important feature for a lot of our community and we want to support their choice.
