Not a lot of FOSS in VR and AR. In fact, one of the biggest VR companies is Facebook.

Hello, I’m @plasticScript! I recently got into FOSS and internet privacy and am very interested in it. I’ve replaced most of my services with FOSS alternatives. Happy to be here!

Hello everyone. I'm a 4th year medical student applying into Family Medicine residencies. I used to work in Information Technology before I went to college. I have a Bachelor's in Philosophy, for which I focused on Ethics. I'm always happy to chat about anything interesting or help out when I'm needed. Feel free to follow or PM me for whatever.

Hoping this note finds you well,

I literally did nothing nerdy at all today. Mostly genealogy research. More productive, but less fun to talk about with people on Fosstodon.

Been getting a lot of spam recently after an old email account was on a dump. So I wrote another thing...

I have been interested in FOSS software since I learned about OpenOffice. From there it went onto LInux, and blossomed into getting as much FOSS software into my life. I have been an advocate for getting more people into this community, and have switched a few minds. I am not a developer, but I am definitely a supporter and news spreader.

I'm a Linux Sysadmin/software engineer from Texas, USA. I've contributed to a couple books on database servers and have a deep interest in the Linux kernel.

I've worked with Linux since about 1999, and professionally since 2007. I've been away from it all for a decent chunk of time due to some health issues, but I'm back up and ready to begin again - hoping I can find the right situation to do so

I'm also a 3rd Order Franciscan religious, so I live in two different worlds

Another packed episode of User Error is out for your enjoyment. 🍾 This week - why are people so terrible at backups and passwords 🤦‍, films we haven't seen 🎬, pipe dreams 🌑, and we ask 'Is it time to stop making Linux distributions?' . 🤔

It's cool to see these kind of options popping up, but I doubt it's going to go far without cellular.

Hi! I'm an Australian high school student and I participate in open-source programming. I contribute various little bits and pieces towards the development of Homebrew software for the Wii U.

I usually enjoy anything related to programming or computer security, and do a little Wii U and Xbox gaming every now and then.

In addition to Fosstodon you can find me on Twitter (CreeperMario258), Discord (CreeperMario#6152) and GitHub (CreeperMario).
