I want to make an android game like the typical three-in-a-row games like Candy Crush, where you have all the glittery effects and then it measures the time you've spent playing it and posts it to a leaderboard.
The congratulations for things you do could be "Awesome work handling that fictional complexity! You wasted NN minutes of your life with this!"
When you hit 24 hours the game deletes itself, saying "Look, one whole day of your life gone with this. Just... just DO something!"
"May I kiss you?" the android asked.
"Can't you tell?"
"I can analyse your expression, your breathing, temperature and more, and conclude you want me to."
"There you go."
"But that is me telling me you want me to. I need to hear you tell me you want me to."

Das Fediverse ist groß - und natürlich gibt es hier auch Leute, mit denen man keinen Kontakt haben möchte. Da wird dann gerne gefordert, dass die Entwickler der Fediverse-Clients (Tusky, Fedilab etc.) bspw. rechtsextreme Instanzen direkt im Client blockieren.
Meine Meinung: Das ist nicht die Aufgabe der Entwickler. Das Fediverse und gerade Mastodon bieten genügend Möglichkeiten, diese zu blockieren.
This is something that really needs to be looked at. It's nice to get software that's free both as in beer and freedom, but sometimes you can't have both.
"Software below the poverty line"
This is great for normalising the concept of decentralised social media 👍
If you have a Fediverse account, please do mention it on your website! The more people see these icons, the more comfortable they will be finding out more.
I'm not sure about "complete", but fairly comprehensive anyway.
"Alternatives to Google Products (Complete List) "
So... "Facebooks cryptocurrency project is backed by Uber, VISA, Paypal and Mastercard".
There is basically not a single word in that sentence I don't dislike intensely
I use Feedly, not "social media", to follow writers, creators, journalists, webcomics, artists, and news sources. Why? Because: every post, every time, in order, on every device. No "engagement" control, no pay-for-eyeballs, no censorship, no deplatforming, no spyware, no "growth hacking". And if Feedly screws up or shuts down, I can take my opml file and pour it into one of many other SaaS or open source feedreaders, and continue right where I left off.
Ngl I'm going to be a little pissed if "Firefox Basic" dangles "Premium" features in your face like so many other freemium applications.
FF: Look at this great feature here. Doesn't it look great? Don't you want to try it? It enhances your privacy x1000!!!
Me: That does look nice 🤔
*clicks to enable*
FF: *laughs* Cough up $XX.XX/mo and you can have it 🤣
Wer #Klarnamenpflicht fordert sollte erstmal

-Nebeneinkünfte bis auf den letzten Cent ausweisen

NEWS: #FreedomBox now supports two new hardware models: the Lamobo R1 and the PINE A64-LTS single-board computers! 🎉🎉🎉
This means that we'll publish OS images for each of these two boards whenever a new version of #FreedomBox is released.
Metadata matters. If the NSA knows that you called a suicide hotline at 1:00 in the morning, does it matter that the agency doesn’t have the contents of that call? https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/04/end-nsas-call-detail-records-program-once-and-all
I'm still working on my own (it's not far off done now!), but here's a cool guide to a similar concept called "brutalist" web design: https://brutalist-web.design/
It's completely "no frills", but 100% accessible and provides a solid list of rules to live by.
Simplifies following or interacting with other users on remote Mastodon instances in the Fediverse. It skips the "Enter your Mastodon handle" popup and takes you to your own "home" instance, without entering your Mastodon handle on remote instances.
Have been working for multiple multinationals, Microsoft which was the last of them. While I am thankful for the time spent there, going my own (FLOSS) way now.
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
