I am person behind FreeTube, the private YouTube client for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
I enjoy talking about technology and privacy so my toots will mostly be about those, but there will be a good amount of toots about FreeTube as well.
I'm also looking for more people to follow! Let me know if you have any suggestions.
Check out FreeTube here:
O.o!!! @yunohost now has working pixelfed, mastodon, pleroma, peertube, plume, funkwhale in community downloads.
(and some things like I didn't even know I needed like firefox sync self host)
and it apparently can even install on an raspberry pi 2? (although that is probably a very bad idea for social media side of things for multiple reasons xD)
I officially have no excuse left at least to not create a pixelfed instance.

“How does one hate a country, or love one?... I know people, I know towns, farms, hills and rivers and rocks, I know how the sun at sunset in autumn falls on the side of a certain plowland in the hills; but what is the sense of giving a boundary to all that, of giving it a name and ceasing to love where the name ceases to apply? What is love of one’s country; is it hate of one’s uncountry?”
The Green Anti-Capitalist Front is an alliance of groups and individuals united by a belief that capitalism is one of the core causes of the environmental crisis threatening us all, and that if we do not act soon the costs of that crisis will fall on the poor and powerless.
We have joined Sunbeam City as it (obviously) shares our values of Green Anti-Capitalism and can't wait to agitate, educate and organize with the rest of the fediverse.
If you fancy meeting some of us in person, we're at the Anarchist Festival in London this weekend. Tomorrow we'll be discussing anti-capitalist alternatives to reformist solutions like the Green New Deal, from 4-6PM at LARC 62 Fieldgate Street, E1 1ES

I feel like the IndieWeb is a great example of commons-based peer production, as per Benkler’s definition:
"radically decentralized, collaborative, and nonproprietary; based on sharing resources and outputs among widely distributed, loosely connected individuals who cooperate with each other without relying on either market signals or managerial commands."
Instagram alternative #PixelFed's flagship instance pixelfed.social is now permanently closed to new registrations in order to prevent centralisation.
You can still sign up to PixelFed, just pick another instance.
Here are some we'd recommend:

PixelFed instances federate with the Fediverse, so you can follow PF accounts from Mastodon etc.

#OlaBini (@firstname.lastname@example.org) is detained for 47 days now. In his words in a letter to the president of #Ecuador (@Lenin@twitter.com) "Let me be clear. I have never done anything aimed to attack or destabilize your country. That’s not who I am." @email@example.com
"In a 1991 speech to the National Cattlemen’s Association, he described how MBD works to divide and conquer activist movements. Activists, he explained, fall into four distinct categories: ‘radicals,’ ‘opportunists,’ ‘idealists,’ and ‘realists,.’ He outlined a three-step strategy: (1) isolate the radicals; (2) ‘cultivate’ the idealists and ‘educate’ them into becoming realists; then (3) coopt the realists into agreeing with industry."

Our Actions Create the Future: A Response to Jem Bendell
“We are not defending nature. We are nature defending itself.”
It appears that #Diaspora have quietly dropped their buggy, awkward #XMPP chat feature. I just logged into my D* account for the first time in a while and I can't see any sign of it. Anyone know what happened there? If they have given up on integrated chat, that's a shame considering that @jcbrand made a pull request to replace their half-finished #JSXC integration with one based on #Conversejs *and* maintain it.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
