Casual reminder that #Mastodon is free, open source software, development of which is crowdfunded through Patreon: patreon.com/mastodon

If you care less about development, consider supporting your local instance admin instead (in case of mastodon.social that's still me and link above, YMMV)

List of #Mastodon sponsors: github.com/tootsuite/documenta

Ultimately Mastodon's killer feature is that it's a public good that someone built because they thought it needed to exist and not a startup someone built because they wanted to get rich quick selling other people's data.

New research on how kids from lower socio-economic status communities think about digital privacy. I’m not surprised these kids have a much more nuanced and powerful understanding of privacy than most in tech. They think of the lack of digital privacy as structural discrimination which is a far more powerful framework than the individual responsibility model everyone else uses. journals.sagepub.com/eprint/x5 (open access!)

This looks like an interesting alternative to traditional peer review. Wonder if it could be made to work in the peercommunityin.org/
