Well, here's my Mastodon timeline, inside Emacs, on a DEC VT420.

Someday I want to either start or participate in some sort of software coop

cyberpunk on TV: "wow this is amazing"

cyberpunk in a book: "fuck yeah"

cyberpunk in an image: "nice"

cyberpunk in real life: "I'm staging an intervention for you, you drink too much, smoke too much, your apartment is a mess, you haven't been out in weeks, and why do you have all these useless broken computers?"

if php's mascot is an elephant then why is mastodon not written in php

GoLang is probably the best programming language... for backend web development of CRUD apps

I read about Risc-V initiative. Shit, I want this to replace x86 in the nearest future.
I mean, it's fully open-souce general-purpose computing architecture anyone can improve upon! Damn!

True software freedom for this age: you can get the source code of a service you use, and can set it up on your own server. You can also get all your data from the service, and migrate it to another service (hosted by you or someone else). Futher, all of this needs to be easy, fast, and cheap enough to be feasible, and there can't be "network effects" that lock you into a specific service instance.

Please don't demand content warnings from strangers. Content warnings are a sort of social contract between an author and their followers; if you are not happy with how someone chooses to use them, do not follow that person or outright mute them, or mute words.

One of the most alienating experiences on Mastodon I've observed is when someone posts about something they're passionate about or is part of their identity and the first response is "please cw that" from a complete stranger.


Your donations have a real impact on our ability to host events like the upcoming #InkscapeHackfest in Kiel. Many thanks from all of our generous contributors!

seriously tho dune is probably the worst thing david lynch ever did and if they're gonna remake it they better work off jodorowsky's book or idgaf

I have been considering the ability to hide following/follower counts on pixelfed.

I have noticed that is one of the addicting aspects of social media and I don't want pixelfed to be a platform that encourages addiction. We don't have shareholders to impress and we have a social responsibility to build better alternatives.


#Peertube looks very nice @chriswere I can follow your feed with RSS and atom. 👍

Well this is troubling...
Issues with the Commons Clause license and it's effect on open source.

I think it's easy for someone like me, where programming is more of a hobby, to go full with the GPL as I don't have to worry about making a living off of any of my work. I can see the appeal of other licenses where it may be easier to set up a steady income. But this is definitely not the way to go.

@ivan @mwlucas "son, are you doing lisp in there? it's okay to tell me if you are."!

Great UX from Imgur for visitors with Javascript disabled, because "display an image" requires web 6.0 javascript meme tech
