@ImmersSpace is an #ActivityPub federated social network for the #ImmersiveWeb and #VR where we give creators control over their income, give users ownership of their data, and put the community in charge https://medium.com/immers-space/lets-save-the-metaverse-b37cb5de9ff4
I absolutely love the explosion of tech creativity that #ActivityPub brought onto the world.

My employer, Freedom of the Press Foundation, is looking for a web design firm to partner with for a redesign of one of our flagship projects, the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker.
This is a pretty cool opportunity to do mission-driven design work -- please help pass it along to design firms who you think could be a good fit.
Budget is $40-$50K. Note that we have an internal web dev team, so the focus here is on the design.
Just came across @tindall in a news article! A class action against Microsoft's attempted capitalist enclosure of all FOSS with their AI programming tool trained on our copyleft code is a a great idea
