- the battery
- a removable OpenPGP smart card
- a removable cellular modem
- and a microSD card so you can expand your storage later on

Interesting to see this explosion of new open-ish licenses.
A year ago I tried learning ActivityPub, and more or less failed. I was confounded by a spec that was so abstract I couldn't make heads or tails of it. Turns out I was missing some key things.
I have written a guide to learning about ActivityPub that I wish existed a year ago when I first set out to learn how to write social media servers that conform to the spec:
🆕 New stuff
- Polls! 📊 Create polls, vote in them, and get notifications when they're done.
- Filters! You can now filter boosts/replies from the home timeline, or boosts/favs/mentions/follows/polls from the notifications timeline.
- Improved push notifications
- Accessibility and usability fixes
- "x minutes ago" updates automatically
Release notes: https://github.com/nolanlawson/pinafore/releases/tag/v1.8.0
Firefox Containers are one of my biggest selling points of the browser, so I'm happy to announce my new add-on, 🦝 Trash Bear 🦝, which lets you open single-serving containers that get deleted after you close the tab. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/trash-bear/
Hey, if you're in school and are having trouble paying for your textbooks, search them up on libgen.io to find them for free.
I'm realizing that a lot of people at my college don't know this and are skipping meals to afford overpriced textbooks, so it may help someone on here too. #sharingiscaring

>My dream (👋⚠️) is a web of hashlinked data (md, html, json, code) rendered and manipulated by client-side user software composed of sandboxed pieces more granular than extensions. Like a npm of pure functions and react-like components summoned by the user in an emacs-like way.
It is proven! I am agentofuser on Keybase: https://keybase.io/agentofuser/sigchain#d31434960dea207e2b36208a365809889c11a2c11e6b103b2f7d56d25085d07d0f
Turning it into explicit stack + for loop made me solve in 20min what I had already poured hours into. Damn you imperative mind.
Very exciting call for research:
Mozilla has an interest in potentially integrating more of Tor into Firefox 🔥
Tor has never been deployed at this scale, so there are a lot of considerations to research before giving this a try.

Curious about the Librem One moderation policy or code of conduct?
"If you are being harassed, or witness online harassment, block and flag the offending user, and a moderator will take action. We do not tolerate harassment."
More information here:
Librem One Code of Conduct:
I woke up to the drama about #LibremOne in the fediverse.
As I said before in , while I think removing local and federated timelines from their fork of #Mastodon is a weird (but bold) decision, I think disabling reports is outright problematic for the rest of us in the fediverse.
Now I am glad to see this move 😀. I hope @purism continues to innovate and at the same time, continues to consider feedback from the community.
