mastodon project, governance Show more
Feels like Mastodon is getting to the size and traction where it isn't healthy for the community/project for @Gargron to have to make all the decisions.
This is an inflection point for every open source project. I see that @BaptisteGelez is making strides towards putting #plume in a good place for moving forward, especially in decision making and transparency.
Oh, hey... I'm on Mastodon now.
It is so hard to help new people in team to set up. Very much of effort to do such thing, but at least it feels great afterwards 😄
Showed colleague a power of redshift. So love to show the bright side of Linux to other people, and they look so... amazed of how things can be great
Was reading again the series of articles on how designers fail their job, here is a link to part 1 https://medium.com/@probonopd/make-it-simple-linux-desktop-usability-part-1-5fa0fb369b42
There are some things I do not agree with, but several things became different nowadays. And at the same point - some things didn't change. Some of my thoughts will be in the thread
Checked out a riot.im . The service feels awkward and strange in browser. I think they need a UX designer, or at least a developer who cares about overall beauty
The more I learn the web the more I feel, how dangerous it is in fact. Damn, anyone can literally track everybody all the time. I feel so paranoid now...
BTW, my personal website works well too :D
> There’s a new social network in town. It’s called Mastodon.
No, no, no! It's called the fediverse, and it's been around for nearly a decade.
Another one article I totally agree. Now on redundant complexity
Today I've learnt that fediverse is not really that friendly community. The fish rots from the head, you. And in fediverse, there is nothing different here...
Too sad... May we create a free internet just for people, who are open to make this internet better and not to allow bad people enter?
Happy Friday, lovely fediversians.
Yeah, it seems like bad stuff is all there is because that's what gets click/headlines/attention etc, but there is so much good out there in the world as well.
Remember there are so many people out there fighting for good everyday that will never get the props they deserve.
You're not alone. You're never alone.
Modern computers are complex enough to be some kind of magic for people. And it is not for people related to IT - they mostly think that computers are boring.
Now I start thinking that if we had magic, like in D&D, wizards would treat magic like something everybody should know.
And now I declare myself as 5th level wizard of Creation and Protection Schools. There are also Destruction, Locking, Abstract and MetaMagical schools :D
work-related fun Show more
At my job, sometimes managers have fun about developers. They make complex and hard tasks, and then right when you give task for testing, they tell "well... it's irrelevant now, because it depends on that thing we will alter very soon".
This is very hillarious, but sometimes there is too much such tasks

focusing™️ on™️ what™️ really™️ matters™️
I hate big, fat frameworks. They take all the creative fun out of programming and just make you conform to someone else's API. Not to mention the API is usually unidiomatic to its host language and basically a world of its own.
