i'm tao! i studied computer science and philosophy and for the last year i've been living and working in #copenhagen (though i'm moving to #edinburgh soon). i'm into computer security, privacy, philosophy, and politics (and the intersections between these). in the near future i'm hoping to become better at vegan cooking & to explore scotland's nature!

Some of you might ask, "hey I've heard telegram is secure too! why not that??"
So the short reason is: telegram is like kinda encrypted yes but there's not enough clarity about how secure it is for us to really say "this is a good option"
Wire uses the signal protocol and while signal the project is problematic, the protocol itself has been well vetted.
from one event:
"In this Meetup we will discuss how CIOs and CEOs in corporations can regain control of customer interactions from digital platforms via blockchain technologies to the benefit of the producer and the consumers, allowing them to avert costly middlemen, and letting prices better reflect inherent values of goods and services."
y’all are really invested in gaining as much or more social capital that you had on twitter
interacting is different here. follower counts are not important (and should not be)
“boost if” / “boost to” posts are mostly just annoying
just enjoy the people and make connections and enjoy social media without all of the pressure to perform and gain fame
i hope to one day love something as much as beatboxers love beatboxing loudly in public
i love socialism and having a good time with my friends
To my anarchist/commie/socialist comrades Show more
I hate that after a year and a half, my fear that the brocialists are coming to Mastodon seems to have finally proven true.
Let's do our best to keep our anarchist/commie/socialist community safe for women, non-white people, queer people, trans people, furries, and sincerity, and to always strive to improve on what we've already established.
We created this culture, let's make sure we fight for it.
