Making my software decisions based on dragons:

clang: ✔️ has a dragon
gcc: ❌ no dragon
kde plasma: ✔️ has a dragon
gnome: ❌ no dragon
wireguard: ✔️ has a dragon
openvpn: ❌ no dragon

The difference between a closed, algorithmically-curated silo like Twitter and the fediverse.

Same post.

Twitter: ~43K “followers”, 8 boosts, 58 likes
Fediverse: ~8.43K followers, 57 boosts, 106 likes

Your thousands of “followers” on Twitter mean nothing because the algorithm (i.e., Twitter, Inc.) decides who gets to hear you.

#fediverse

Just flashed on my , wow has it improved since I tried it last year. So much smoother from the installation process to the actual interface itself, well done to everyone at the project!

...and here's the same thing using . Needs more work and polishing but just to give an idea. It works pretty well with thumb only too but that's hard to record.

🔄 Boosts very appreciated, we need you!

I really wish more developers would focus on the flatpak world. I’ve seen a lot of apps hold back on new features because distros couldn’t support them.

So please, don't give me this "the war about the word #hacker is lost" bullshit. It's not. We just keep surrendering and undermining our own position.

So, stop using the word "hacker" to mean "cybercriminal". Stop using the word "hack" to mean "breach" or "compromise".

There are better words.

Like "cybercriminal", "breach", "compromise".

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

My 2500th follower will get a free compliment. Only 1 more to go! 🥳🥳

#mastodon #fediverse #following

Is anyone here interested in developing with me a #Python + #GTK app for the #Gnome desktop that addresses the #Nextcloud #Password API? The goal is to develop for #libhandy, so for the #Linux phones like the #Librem5 or #PinePhone. Please feel free to boost.

I have unlimited respect for people who have the courage and energy to keep leading change, who work on things that are not mainstream.

Be it monitoring political figures, making sure a government respects the law, fighting for social rights, protecting employees from an employer, providing software or services that frees others... you are heroes and what you do matters.

Thank you for caring about others.

#RightToRepair

Dear Mastodon, we're ~60 followers away from 12K! Can you help us get there?

Help by spreading the word that:

🔵 Privacy is a human right.

🔵 Tracking & surveillance are widespread on the internet.

🔵 Tor is a nonprofit that can help you take back your privacy online.

A presentation rejected by every Tech conference from here to Timbuktu...

Is finally happening.
