Here are some #opensource #foss apps I use from #F–droid Show more

Hello! I really like my feed: I learn lots of new things about #infosec, #crypto, #coops and #opensource.

However I'm missing some things--can you help me find them?

I want to talk more about people, working with them, their limitations and potential. I want to talk about #governance, #facilitation, #voting, #cognitivebiases and other concrete things that can be tried (and falsified) in #groups.

Let me know if you're interested, or boost if you think you have followers who are interested.


I'm an applied theoretical disease ecologist (yes, applied and theoretical - empircal is the opposite of theoretical, not applied).

I model the distributions of disease and immunity and use those models to make management recommendations.

I like thinking about economic/decision theoretic tools and their applications to public health decision making.

(maybe I should tag this #introductions )

Hello! :)

I am Cassian. I am #nonbinary and toot/boost about that a bit. I'm #ActuallyAutistic and I have #EDS (#hEDS specifically), so I'm a bit interested in those things and #disability / #accessibility generally.

Mastodon is one of my autistic special interests, so I do post about it quite a lot! I'm not a coder/developer but I like to rootle around in the Github issue list and sometimes post about upcoming features I like and post tutorials for newbies.

#introductions Greetings, My name is Bill Monte. I have fled FB for something that fits my values and worldview better. I worked in higher ed but also in public schools. I teach Ancient History. My area of research is Spirituality and Education. My hope is to connect with like minded ppl. My politics are liberal and independent. No apologies for that. :)

Got my (non-NFC) holding GPG subkeys working with Android and K-9 mail client. First time in my life that I've used PGP encrypted mail on a smartphone. The phone part turned out surprisingly easy -- OpenKeychain is great!

Next up: trying NitroKeys (a bit more open than YubiKey, + a proper USB plug which is more convenient for GPG use).

this is an alt account for This is where I'll squee, rant, ramble & other words that mean "talk alot" about the books that I'm reading.

Fiction: mainly #sff and #romance with the occasional #thriller or so-called "women's fiction."

Non-fiction varies. I'm currently reading "Love's Not Colorblind" (#polyamory) and "The Seven Habits of HIghly Effective People (#selfhelp). Previous was "Sapiens" and "Souls of Black Folk" (#race/#history).

I'm a metadata librarian (we used to be called catalogers). I'm a quasi-academic, working for university libraries in the past, but now work for a prominent think tank. I'm interested in the organization of information and how it's accessed.

I'm a Professor at the #Software Institute of the USI Faculty of Informatics in Lugano, Switzerland. I lead the #Architecture, #Design and #Web #Information #Systems #Engineering group.

Hi folks. I'm based out of Mcr, UK. I test computer security for a job, volunteer occasionally coding for OSS community projects. I'm also a parent and a born again rollerblader. Really excited about the prospect of a cooperatively owned and run social media.

After a literal day of "research", I finally gathered enough courage to sign up here and toot.

Hello! The name is Renata.

I've always struggled with pursuing my interest(s) actively because I worry too much about failing, and that includes Mastodon. It can be daunting for new users, like, I'm afraid I may quit because I don't "get" it. But I've heard a lot of good things and I want to feel at home on the internet again, so, I'm hoping to find a friendly bunch here :)

#introductions Hi all, I'm a Master's student currently studying Computer Science at BYU with a focus on Bioinformatics. I am also an avid #emacs user. Would love to talk with any other Computer Scientists or Bioinformaticians.


Hi! I'm Shonalika, a #nonbinary #vegan creative person. I write songs, rap, and sing. Also half of @powderpaint.

I have an uncommon physical #invisibledisability which causes chronic pain. Over time I've lost the ability to play guitar. So I started spoken word and splashing around in Logic.

Also like to paint and play Pokemon if my condition lets me.

Not sure if I have a personality outside of that, so... that's all I guess! Thanks for reading ^^

#introductions Hey guys, I just finished my Bachelor Degree in Computer Science with a focus on information security here in Germany and started to work full-time as a Deployment Guy. I am wondering if I should continue with my Masters Degree or keep working. Hopefully I will find some interesting people and conversations here :)

Pinafore is now on Mastodon! (How meta is that?)

Hello Mastodon! I'm a techy programmer-type person hoping to help build a better world (direct democracy, solidarity economy, etc.). I also happen to live in a vehicle on wild, public lands, moving every couple weeks, foraging, practicing survival skills and helping people where we can. I know a lot about radio, solar, 12v DC power and nature/wildlife as a result. Nice to meet you all! Hope to see familiar and new faces.

Hi Scholar Social! We are – a non-commercial #OpenScience Q&A site run by Bielefeld University Library, Germany. #introduction

#introductions Hi! I am a Romance Languages professor, specialist on 20th century French literature and philosophy, working on a book on matricide and modernism, a project on literature and tattoos, and trying to finish this semester in one piece. (Also, pretty new to mastodon, figuring it out still) #tattoos #modernism #poststructuralism

If you're into working with humans, free software & cryptography, and you love the idea of helping news organizations break their biggest stories based on submissions by whistleblowers, you may want to come work with me! New opening at Freedom of the Press Foundation just went up - boosts appreciated:
