New to Mastodon? Here are four intro guides to help you understand how everything works here. Show more

I hope that in the coming years the advantages of small communities will be recognized. The Fediverse is for me like a small collection of many exciting pubs where like-minded people come together. Such places have the potential to create subcultures, create their own language, own jokes etc.
To refer to my previous mail: Communities like the RestrealitΓ€t (oldschool community for Berlin techno lovers) are exactly those subcultures I would like to see here.

Goodness me, I am miffed with Microsoft. The recent Windows 10 update reset all my privacy settings, customisations and firewall rules – without any notice of intent to do so. And it reinstalled all the crapware tile apps I’d studiously removed previously. I am seriously irked!

Ordered some handwarmers from Amazon, based on which I have been offered the autobiography of No thanks, but what on earth have handwarmers got to do with him?! social.coop/media/8R99HtvdvphS

"The was supposed to replace the industry. Instead, it has replicated it.

Nakamoto wanted to create a system for that would circumvent governments, bankers, and corporations. Instead, Bitcoin is now a get-rich-quick scheme that retains none of the exciting, anarchist features it proposed and has created a secondary with financial shenanigans that mirror the ones that led to the global financial crisis."

Hey folks, what if anything can I do with all this empty screen real estate in my left-hand column? social.coop/media/c-J4s3FQMyvl

The new push notifications in mobile web for Mastodon 2.0 are reallllllly good, indistinguishable from a native app now. I just pinned my mastodon server to my home screen and I no longer have any need for a dedicated app.
