Write Freely :writefreely: is another type of server on the Fediverse :fediverse:

Its focus is entirely on long form text posts, so things like articles, essays, stories etc. It has a very minimalist interface which aims to be as distraction-free as possible, so that it's easier for readers to actually read.

You can follow Write Freely accounts from Mastodon etc because they are both on the Fediverse.

There's more info on the official site at writefreely.org and you can follow the project at @writefreely

You can get a Write Freely account from servers listed at writefreely.org/instances or at fedidb.org/software/writefreel

There are official apps at writefreely.org/apps

You know the amazing mobile.twitter.com/biktorgj who singlehandedly created a nearly-FOSS userland modem firmware for the #pinephone and #pinephonepro ? He supports the community, is incredibly stubborn, err, persistent, in the face of a weird modem and regularly improves the firmware. You can even tell your phone modem to remind you to buy milk now via SMS. He likes coffee and we think he deserves some as a token of gratitude 😍! Pour him one ☕ ko-fi.com/biktorgj

Can't wait for the new arrivals to discover they can use their fedi account to follow video channels on @peertube instances, photo stories on @pixelfed instances, events on @mobilizon , musicians on @funkwhale , and @owncast streams.

If anonymity on the internet would become illegal, would you consider preserving your anonymity and/or privacy even if that may be a crime?
Had to abreviate the answers a little bit.

RT much appreciated, this really interests me.

Social media platforms help us to stay connected with each other and the world. What went wrong is that in a bid to grow their engagement metrics and revenues, social media channels started to track, monitor and control their users’ behavior. They manipulate the users’ thirst to their advertiser’s ends. So what's the way forward? Read more ➡️ puri.sm/posts/the-future-of-so

Catch-up with @kyle at the LinuxFest Northwest on April 24. His talk will explore how he uses OpenSnitch on his mobile Linux device. Apps have a bad habit of snitching on their owners. While this is a much bigger problem on Android and iOS, it's still valuable to detect when apps phone home on Linux. Get the details: linuxfestnorthwest.org/confere

:boost_ok: :ablobcatwave: Please boost this post if you would like the EFF to join the fediverse. :ablobcatbongo:

In a survey the EFF sent me, I suggested they create an account on the fediverse, so they can reach more supporters and support innovative free software that promotes interoperability among platforms, something they've advocated for in the past, too.

If you can boost this post, maybe I'll be able to show them that there are quite a few users who would like them here!

The EFF is the infamous nonprofit organisation that fights for privacy, government transparency, and digital freedom. Their fight is very important, and the EFF is very special to me. https://www.eff.org/about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_Frontier_Foundation

You can see some of their work here https://www.eff.org/work

In the meantime, you can follow @eff, which is an unofficial mirror of their Twitter.

#FOSS on your desk, #FOSS in your pocket, #FOSS on your wrist, and now, #FOSS in your ears!
Too bad plush unicorns with mics sticking out their heads were an April fool 🤣🤣 but I'm really excited about #PineSound and #PineBuds ! 🤩

I've had a leg in both Twitter and Mastodon for years now and post simultaneously in both. I prefer Mastodon in basically every way. The main thing that keeps me on Twitter are folks who aren't (yet) on Mastodon.

The recent phoc upgrade in @debian broke touch/mouse input for all qt apps. There is a patch and @mobian will do an emergency upload to mobian's repo, testing if it fixes it.

It is much more difficult to hide backdoors in free software, especially long-term, writes President of Purism, Kyle Rankin (@kyle) in his new post ✍️ puri.sm/posts/freedom-from-coe
