PSA: @fosstodon is a fantastic Mastodon server. The site is reliable and responsive. Their Code of Conduct is solid. They're well funded. Their excess funds are donated to other fantastic projects.

It's a good server with good morals.

For all of these reasons, I recommend considering supporting them.

Buy used, when you buy.

Repair things when you can.

Stop consuming media that was produced by billionaires and invest your time in open content.

Create open content.

Share the thing you've created with your friends.

Write a blog, instead of posting to facebook. Use mastodon instead of twitter.

Buy your food locally, and when it's in season.

@pcastela do you (or anyone else ready this) know if anyone has thought to designate a certain date as a mass DeGoogle date? The thought of the Google execs crapping their collective pants if they saw hundred of thousands (or even millions) of accounts deleted en mass in a single day fills me with glee.

Heard about this on Late Night Linux and it's a biggie.

Essentially, Google will be able to modify app packages microtargeting individual users. This is the way to get government spyware onto your phone to work around end-2-end encryption by capturing the content of your messages on the endpoint. Apple is doing the same thing btw.
