Hello #fediverse!

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.

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:

pix.diaspodon.fr
pxlfd.me/
pixelfed.de/

You can find more at:
fediverse.network/pixelfed

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

"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."

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.
