Why Mastodon and the fediverse are “doomed to fail”
-> a small rant about how the profit lens distorts our understanding of success vs. failure:
I love when people get out of Libre software bigotry and push for the better, allowing their peers not to be perfect.
Libre software is important, but it is a mean to free people, not an end in itself
@nitox I've been an environmentalist longer than I've been a Bitcoiner and I firmly believe #Bitcoin can be part of the solution of #ClimateChange. One of the big driving forces for our environmental issues are the consumption economy, an economy of evergrowing corporations and unlimited borrowing, and a political environment of big monopolies protected by politics through lobbying.
Bitcoin solves the former and while doing that, it reduces the power of government, taking a shot at the latter.
I’m glad Fosstodon chose against including libre in the name.
I imagine a T-Rex’s little arms trying to pick stuff out of its teeth. I couldn’t come on here without laughing at the image #Flosstodon
Congrats to our friends from the @kde for another polished release. They set the bar very high !
I don't see how Signal (or signal-esque) platforms can hold a flame to Matrix.
It really seems like the better choice. It already has clients for many devices that have varying degrees of complexity for each use case. The tech illiterate can use Matrix with dead simple apps while power users can have as much as they want.
That seems like huge leaps in ease of adoption next to other chat apps.
Been through a couple stages of the interview process for a cryptocurrency service company here in Canada.
As part of my prep I went through the 99Bitcoins playlist of videos as a crash course beyond what I’d picked up here and there. Highly recommended series btw, very simple to understand in depth concepts.
A big "welcome!" to all of our new members. It's great to see all the new faces and the steady flow of introductory toots!
For those members (new and old) that don't know, https://hub.fosstodon.org/ is full of information that is relative to our instance. From staff members to our Code of Conduct, you can find more information about Fosstodon! Make sure to check it out and, if you haven't already done so, make your first toot and tell us a bit about yourself.
So I use Reddit quite a bit because I really enjoy the format. I like how many perspectives you get and often learn and expand my ideas from the comments.
I’ve managed to avoid the toxicity that Reddit is known for, but I’d still like to migrate away for a myriad of reasons.
Anyone familiar with them or others?
