Hey. I'm Cassidy (he/him). I'm just checking this place out. I like FOSS and technology so I thought it might be fitting. I also like nature, hiking, backpacking, and climbing.

As a user of liberating software, free culture works, or user-respecting online services, it's common to want to contribute back but not know how. One contribution anyone can make is to send a message to the maintainers telling them a few things you like about it, thanking them for their work. It's easy to remember to complain about bugs or missing features, but like everyone, creators need compliments too, especially when they are volunteers.

I only knew the flemish name of this one, "heggewinde", so I looked it up. It's Calystegia sepium, and it has so many names in English: hedge bindweed, Rutland beauty, bugle vine, heavenly trumpets, bellbind, granny-pop-out-of-bed.

remember when we had a discourse over sports.

Is anyone up for being paid to create a profile picture? I need someone who will be reliable because twice now people who I've commissioned have dropped out.

I find it deeply upsetting that children tend to favor closed-source platforms that have glaring security and privacy holes. Look at Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and Discord. I have lost all respect for Discord, because I care about my privacy online.

It's sad to see all the work put into open-source privacy-conscious platforms almost ignored by the younger generation. I believe we need to educate them to choose the safer alternatives to 'mainstream' social media. Take Mastodon, for example.

I'm curious now...

if #Twitter started federating tweets with #ActivityPub ( I'm sure they're not going to decentralize ) would you flock back to Twitter?

PS : the choices are heavily opinionated / biased. if you have other choices, please reply to the thread.

also, this poll is applicable to people who have actively used ( or are using ) Twitter; but I'm not going to judge if you just have an opinion.

I just "reminded myself" (by looking at old favourites) that last year Twitter announced they were working on a decentralized version of their protocol.

We are 7 months after that annoucement and, so far, not a pip about it.
