Fedizens of the #Fediverse ..

I want to attract attention to the #weblite hashtag, as something important is happening!

@alexandra and @alcinnz have kicked of a great initiative to finally address the #BloatedWeb and bring it back to its essence.

Existing standards bodies like #WhatWG #W3C #IETF have lost their way. Long-lasting #BigTech influence has led to #web #specs that serve current #browser monopolists only.

A better alternative is now emerging on #Codeberg ..

What if I just polished up XHTML2 and released it as "HTML 6"

I don't think WHATWG could stop me

It is a criticism that is sometimes made but is linux really 'too difficult'* for the average computer user?

*'too difficult' can cover a myriad of things: unfamiliar softwares, confusingly too many package managers, different paradigms, command line vs. gui, etc.

There have been many reports lately that Facebook is blocking links to joinmastodon.org

If you are still on Facebook, please keep spreading the word about Mastodon and the Fediverse.

If joinmastodon.org doesn't work, try posting a link to a reliable instance people can join. There are so many instances, Facebook cannot block all of them from being mentioned.

That Facebook are even doing this implies the Fediverse is on their radar, which is quite an achievement in itself!

So I did that poll a bit ago about Nix vs. Guix and Nix won by a lot.

Now I want to ask:
Why is Nix better than Guix?

Guix supporters feel free to counter-argue.
