Instead of using Mastodon as a place to push out 'news' and articles that I come across that I find interesting, I'm doing that in a broadcast-only space:
It's the 'live' version of my weekly newsletter - i.e. I blast out links when I come across them, and then curate a subset of them in an email that goes out every Sunday:
what do you like at using proprietary software hosted through a central server solution?
...until noboday told me they like it, but everyone keeps on promoting it.
@dajbelshaw did they just changed it? Cause they started with only making the client opensource. Sever side is/was proprietary. ...so you basicly don't know what's happening with your data, and you even can't look it up.
also it gives telegram the power if cencorship as happend a couple of times already.
and nope I don't have a list. But I thought already a couple of times doing it.
So I guess I should.
But there are also already great webpages like prismbreak and alternative.to
well if more ppl who care about free and open culture would say, choose something else or I'm out there wouldn't be a island problem.
(have high resistance in myself being an oportunist)
@dajbelshaw @paulfree14 yeah exactly... we do what we can. and i don't feel nearly as up to speed as half of you all are. if all of you folks who do as much as you can all said "fuck it, i won't work with you until you adopt my preferred methods of communication/collaboration," i wouldn't be here right now to have this discussion.
there's a fine line between "just do it and others will follow," and intellectual elitism that shuns our potential comrades.
