The sheer number of people on Facebook with their real names, photos, locations and workplaces on their profile who are happy to throw abuse at other people kinda disproves the argument that it’s online anonymity that causes abusive behaviour

The Fediverse: I guess I'm not alone in being alone.

A story about how running a bakery on Emacs ( ) is really about how data and code are sometimes the same thing, which was the point of @cwebber 's talk at Copyleftconf ( )

I love SomaFM a lot, but I also really like this Youtube station. I wish they had a plain stream ala SomaFM...

I'm editing the next episode @librelounge now but I don't think it'll be ready for our normal Friday release schedule. It's a really special episode so I want it to be good, but that means it'll probably be an extra week before I can release it. Sorry!

GF thinks Crispin looks like Toothless from the Train Your Dragon series. What do you think?

My friend is trying to create a Zine about diversity in role playing games and he needs your help. If you think this is an important topic, please support his kickstarter.

Unless you have a very good reason not to, or are publicly known anyway, there is really no need for you to use your real name or photo online.

Back in the 90s when i first discovered the internet, this was common knowledge. Nobody used their real name on forums or share personal information without considering the consequences. Those few who did were promptly told that's a bad idea.

It seems somehow we unlearned this, right when corporations started monetizing that information.

New episode of @librelounge is very on point for the fediverse! We talk about what federation is, how ActivityPub fits in, and @emacsen introduces his new WIP ActivityPub-using project ReviewPub

This is the first in what will be an ongoing series about federation, ActivityPub, and the decentralized social web. Hope you enjoy it!

I'm afraid he's not, Miss Fishpaw. Dexter's truancy problem is way out of hand. The Baltimore County school board have decided to expel Dexter from the entire public school system.

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

@cwebber and @emacsen are back from FOSEM and CopyleftConf with a new episode all about their experiences, Chris's grant to work on Spritely and some exciting talks. All in the new episode of Libre Lounge

In a discussion about "Serverless" on Reddit. ( )

I think the ideas of Backend as a Service are potentially powerful, as the abstractions of a single machine often limit the architecture. This is because our traditional POSIX calls are very system specific (rather than service/network centric), but all too often this idea is just used to lock developers into something they can't escape.

Some people's intelligence is scary. This person is one of them. He automatically 3D-ifies Nintendo games, and explains how.

Just found out that probiotic VSL#3 is no longer available in Canada, but if I want the same formulation as the original VLS#3, I need to buy from a company called Visbiome.

Sadly they aren't selling Visbiome in capsules. Maybe it's time for me to make yogurt in small containers for daily use.

"There is no trust in a world where anyone can invent their own definition for #OpenSource, and without trust there is no community, no collaboration, and no innovation." So true, way to many companies tries to trick you today by pretending, that Open Source just mean that you can see the source code. That's neither Open Source, nor #FreeSoftware, don't get fooled!
