Why Mastodon and the fediverse are “doomed to fail”

-> a small rant about how the profit lens distorts our understanding of success vs. failure:

We had a busy June and released several important updates! Check out this month’s recap: blog.elementary.io/updates-for

I get very exhausted when people use their knowledge about how things are done in the big tech / surveillance capitalism (or maybe just "capitalist") world, and try and apply it in totally different domains, like community-focused volunteer projects.

If we remove that part, the equation massively changes.

A really well-made Mastodon instance, which focuses on #encryption and #privacy. The administrator is a nice guy, too.

They mostly talk about encryption and how to stay safe on the internet. I really love the ethics behind this server.

Is there an easier solution to mirror my posts to without using as a stepping stone. Also I wonder if it's even possible to see Facebook comments and messages from the .

Idea: an e-ink device similar to a Kindle, but for writing and publishing instead of reading.

I don't mind fireworks but do people have to shoot them off in residential areas and in broad daylight!? It's annoying as hell!
