I wrote an article about the redesign of MNT Reform https://mntre.com/media/news_md/2019-05-20-reintroducing-reform.html
I read many people being worried about a possible negative effect on native #linux game development because of the #proton + #steam combo. I think that the first visible and positive effect will be that we'll have more reliable demographics on how many people play #games on linux. This will reveal how big this market is and hopefully will bring according efforts to develop games.
since this is coming up again, i feel it's important to stress the following facts about privacy on mastodon:
- DMs are stored in plaintext in the database
- yes, this means admins can access them
- it also means they will be accessible if your instance DB is leaked
- however: this is the same as the situation on any other mainstream social media site
- at the end of the day you should make sure you trust your admins
- ultimately: don't use mastodon for privacy-critical messages
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
