I made this dashboard using the power of to help you find people to follow on Mastodon!

I'm legitimately _afraid_ of facebook's new crypto scam

like i feel fear when i think about it

<barrucadu> At work we have a large postgres table called "mongodb" with two columns called "collection" and "document", the latter of which is JSONB. Apparently it works well

From #haskell on freenode.

git is just version control on the blockchain.

Think about how much of the operation of modern society is enabled because of our presumption of literacy. Just - no really, stop and think how much of life goes by without a pain because we can, more or less, assume folk can read.

Imagine what a presumption of a full belly and a warm bed could do.

"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies."

"Bzip2 maintainership has been passed on from original founder Julian Seward to now being maintained by open-source developer @federicomena "

- Phoronix

So cool!

These corporations hate copyleft licensed software because its reciprocal nature - derivative works must also carry the same license, and cannot be "closed" - legally blocks the corporates from exploiting (colonising) the software for private profit without reciprocating to the community who created it. Imagine that.

The all-new Mac Pro, in its maxed-out configuration, will run as many as 12 concurrent Slack sessions. This workflow has never been possible before.

If you've ever wondered how books get onto, this is how

Following non-coders is so confusing. Couple definitions for some words you may see pop up on your time line:

📕 library: a place with books
📈 graph: a chart
🗺 map: used for navigation
🐍 python: snake
📚 heap: a pile of things
🌲 tree: a tall plant
🐞 bug: an insect

Reminder that good fediverse admins don't block domains, they block users

So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)

This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.

Stop using Google Chrome.

Google Chrome is moving to remove autonomy from Web users. Excuse me while I purge it from my machines. Please remember - it’s a “open source” “project” (commerically provided product) whose goal is to not to “affect our [Google’s] ability to customize ads and/or could block ads online, which would harm our business” (from their SEC 10-K filing).

Google Chrome is not built for people; it’s built for Google, by Google. You are their bank.

mom can I have [100% browser market share]
so you can [give everyone a fast and modern browser]?
*actually forces all users to disable adblocking like a boss*
