Happy to announce I have contributed over 75,000 photos to #openstreetcam, that's nearly 1,000km of footage. This is the (one of the) #opensource equivalents of Google Streetview. This was possible thanks to a Waylens dashcam sponsored by Telenav!

Computer vision and machine learning learns how to recognise street signs and traffic rules from this footage.

If you want to help reforestation, it's important to know about a process called ecological succession. This is how nature does it.

The plants most people think of as weeds are very important in this. Botanically, they're known as pioneer species. They're tough, tenacious, and will grow even in unforgiving places.

Pioneers lay the groundwork for larger plants to gradually take over, eventually making a comfortable environment for climax species, like forest trees.

I first started using Mastodon back in 2017. I tried a few Finnish 🇫🇮 instances but they slowly degraded to unusable status. So here I am at Fosstodon! I've followed a few Fosstodonians proviously and I see this community is active and hospitable. I'm also a FOSS nerd so I think I'll enjoy my stay here.

My interest include:
- FOSS (obviously)
- Gaming
- Degooglifying
- Alternatives to Android (excl. iOS)

Facebook just locked me out of my account.

One of their apps attempted to login via the non onion link.
Apparently they know me so well anything non related is suspicious 🤣
