If anything's going to keep FOSS alive it won't be web-scale upstream-owning megacorps, and it won't be yesterday's problematic icons alienating everybody they talk to today.

It's gonna be you, doing stuff you think is cool and helping other people do stuff they think is cool.

#ActivityPub supports Groups. I'm wondering if anyone has developed something like a mailing list for AP yet?

I want to have a technical group ala a mailing list.

Anyone know of anything like this yet?

#Youtube is deleting Cyber #security videos because they changed TOS, and now everything about how to perform #pentest break TOS.

People at r/datahoarders are backuping ALL #security videos including #lockpicking and are sharing it through #bittorrent

Please, if you can afford it (size wise), share. #fuckYouTube and fuck #censorship

You can view all of a person's posts filtered by hashtag by adding "/tagged/" to the end of their public profile address, then adding the hashtag.

For example, here is a link to all of switching.social's posts tagged #MastoTips:

mastodon.at/@switchingsocial/t

This can be very useful for artists wanting to link to a portfolio, or writers wanting to link to articles about a topic.

You can also add these to your public profile page by going to Preferences > Edit Profile > Featured Hashtags

I love how Mastodon is 100% functional and contains zero trackers.

It's almost as if you don't need trackers to make a functioning site and any trackers on other sites are wholly unnecessary and should be fought against on every possible level...

I, for one, enjoy using Free Software specifically because of the immature forced recursive acronyms.

I'm staying on Fosstodon whether I agree or disagree with what Kev said. I'm here because I wanted to be a part of a community around one of my passions.

Thats why this place exists. There are people from all different walks... lets show grace towards each other, even if we disagree.

Some of you guys scream inclusion (which I strongly support) but in the same breath troll someone who disagrees with you on a issue.

Lets show grace, tone down being self-absorbed and keep it focused on FOSS.

A software company declined in quality after being bought by Microsoft. My god 😮 why would such a thing happen? :blobcatgiggle:

@inkscape guys, it’s 2019, can the forums not incorporate a responsive design? The experience isn’t very good on mobile, and that’s how most people will use it I imagine. 😕

The BOOKS will stop working...

F*ck DRM, get Calibre and backup the stuff that you bought.

Also: ask your favorite author if you can buy their e-books DRM free. They need our support to keep writing, DRM is only corporate bullsh*t barrier between the author and their readers.
