@outkine I like musk. I dont trust the media.
Mastodon as a Sidebar (Firefox add-on) by @soapdog is really neat! Just tried it out today and it works surprisingly well. Uses Pinafore under the hood, so you can log in to multiple instances. Pressing Shift-Alt-M will close or open it. Cool use case! https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/mastodon-as-a-sidebar/
@alcinnz ok so:
it's a for-profit company crowd funded that doesn't know right now how they are going to decentralize, but they figure cryptocurrency will somehow fund them.
@mooshoe I often get the impression that a blockchain was people's first exposure to any sort of database more complicated than a spreadsheet.
i wonder if these guys actually understand what cryptocurrency is:
aka not something to build a social media app with.
Happy birthday, qutebrowser!
A big thanks to the friendly @the_compiler for making the best web browse out there. :)
