I will split my #fediverse activity by language, this account here is for English only and email@example.com is my French account.
I like that I can pilot my fediverse activity by POSSEing content from my own blog to different corners of the fediverse and the birdsite : https://www.rmendes.net/blog/ (by the way this blog support #indieweb so you can comment from your own site to all my URL's) I will see how practical it is, below image is my blog dashboard !
And on my way back.. #Paris
On March 23, Europeans are taking to the street to tell the European Parliament to reject Article 13—will you be there? https://www.savetheinternet.info/demos
After careful consideration, we have decided that this new and exciting UI will be spun out as a separate Pixelfed Labs project.
This means you will be able to self host just this UI and use it with Pixelfed, Mastodon, Pleroma and other mastodon api compatible projects much like Pinafore and Halcyon!
Great news for the Fediverse: #Pleroma is now a #Mastodon Sponsor https://wedistribute.org/2019/03/pleroma-is-now-a-mastodon-sponsor/
Nice. In the lobste.rs thread on a #mastodon article, a lot of people mention how #pleroma is much easier to deploy. It’s nice that people are finally catching on. Articles praising mastodon don’t get universal agreement anymore; people bring up alternatives. Hopefully, we can continue shifting that mindshare so people think of the #fediverse instead of the Mastodon network

Pictures from FOSDEM 2019
I finally got around to uploading my pictures from this year's FOSDEM 2019 conference in Brussels, Belgium.
I spent most of my time in the Software-defined Storage DevRoom, where I also spoke about the latest developments in the Ceph Dashboard. I also collected all Ceph-related FOSDEM talks on the Ceph blog.
What a kick in the teeth of every european citizen: the EVP/EPP wants to prepone the final referendum regarding the EU copyright directive.
This would mean, that the referendum will be before the massive protests planned for March 23rd.

History is made: petition opposing the #EU's #Article13 internet censorship plan draws more signatures than any petition in human history. https://boingboing.net/2019/03/05/no-filternets-nein.html v/ @doctorow at @BoingBoing #FixCopyright #SaveYourInternet #Copyfight #PLEDGE2019EU
According to the organisers 2.000 people attended the #saveyourinternet protest in Berlin today! And I’m happy seeing so many teenagers, school students and people in the twenties like me here. Especially since conservatives (the CDU is Germany’s conservative center-right party) always claim that they’re not interested in politics & that epically backfired at them today^^
I’m at the protest against the anti copyright law in Berlin right now. Here are around ~800 people on a first glance! #saveyourinternet
