Here in Brazil, we've just elected Jair Bolsonaro, a guy who have denied that we didn't had a dictatorship ruled by the military, a guy who said that his hero is a torturer called Ustra.
Since this happened, i've been thinking, why the fuck do i support a police that work like they're bad guys, like who they're supposed to protect us from. A police who doesn't respect the rules and aren't even more efficient by doing it...
New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.
Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.
It will take some work.
If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.
Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.
Read the report of #freedomhouse how the governments around the world a tightening controls over the internet.
Hello all I am Jesse. I love bsd, linux, and foss. I normally try to stay off the grid, but mastodon has piqued my interest so I am here to test. Exciting times we are living in. #introductions
I was wondering, does someone know about any academic mensions of #ActivityPub ? An article or something...🤔
I truly believe that #ActivityPub (the protocol behind #Mastodon) has the potential to redefine the way we create and connect on the internet. But to get there, we need to spread the word - a network is only as valuable as the people in it.
I want to get that ball rolling - I wrote a blog post about how ActivityPub is going to change the internet. Check it out here: https://jeremydormitzer.com/blog/what-is-activitypub-and-how-will-it-change-the-internet/. And please boost/share to your other networks so we can keep making the Fediverse bigger!
@unmellow Decentralisation seems to be his core theme, I like that. I'd like to expand it beyond technology and into the wider economic and political arena because I have argued for a while now that centralisation is a big cause of the issues we face in society

I haven't done an #introduction either... I don't really publish personal information, but here goes what I do share 😂
I'm a student developer, and I like to create things. I mostly just work on small little projects like extensions for https://github.com/Blockheads-Messagebot/MessageBot and Discord bots and such. I'm trying to make a mastodon bot, but I'm having trouble making it.
