ich habe schon mindestens 50 big funkies genutzt und immer war der ton warm und lecker. aber heute, dieser digitalfunk, der ist so kalt, da sind die wörter schon an der antenne festgeklumpt. das heißt, die bits lagen im cache schon seit mindestens 15ms und das hat nichts mehr mit 1 funkgerät zu tun, bis auf das aussehen.

Mastodons design decisions are so poor I don’t even know where to start. And as always no prior discussion took place. Decisions are just made and the Fediverse has do deal with them.

Das Safeword ist zu unsicher. Es muss mindestens einen Kleinbuchstaben und ein Sonderzeichen enthalten. #safersex #bdsm

I’m writing my first GTK3 app and it feels like if I’m making first contact with an alien race using a rather peculiar language.

Fascinating video about how differential steering works from 1937

Mastodon has no project governance. Just one guy doing random stuff while ignoring the world around him. Just take a look at the issue tracker: Hundreds of untagged, unanswered issues…

I can't believe it has come to this.

If you are using your FOSS projects to limit choice and drive your political agenda, you are no more an agent of freedom than self indulgent corporations who use software to drive their commercial agendas. For instance, you are no different than Microsoft.

The freedom in free software isn't freedom to be told what to do, what to believe, what opinions to hold, and who to talk to.

Let the Fediverse be free and open to everyone.

And now even Gargon is supporting this behavior. In reality Mastodon just wants to be another silo, but with more rainbows and simulated bliss.

Am I the only one that finds it rather disturbing that app developers are openly talking about crippling their apps so that they wont work with gab’s Mastodon instance? Freedom 0, anyone?

I’m planning my great digital exit by generating random passwords and storing them neatly in my password manager and then losing the master key.

One simply can not watch too many O'Brien episodes.

ICANN granted the domain '.amazon' today, rather than the entire geographic region of the Amazon Basin.

Acts like this are colonial, obviously, but also a slap in the face to early internet promises of global representation + shared power. Its really sad.
