So there is this ages old idea in the fantasy literature, that gods somehow need to be worshiped to gain strength, that they feed on human attention. And then we have several tech companies basically building attention-harvesting engines under the guise of selling ads. I bet this fits together somehow, but I can't quite see how yet.

I'm trying to get away from WhatsApp because of these constant security failures & software backdoors; if you have my phone number, please consider using Signal instead of WhatsApp.

We absolutely love seeing how helpful the FOSS / Thunderbird community is here on the Fediverse. Unlike every other social platform we're on, you're constantly helping each other with issues.

And we sincerely appreciate that, since it's basically one person handling all the comms.

Rock on, Thunderbird family!

Boosts appreciated, the iOS beta is rolling out this week! 🚀 #pixelfedApp

@shivvi We don't have an exact release date for Android, and no we haven't given up on you.

We're hoping to release the Android beta shortly after iOS!

If you have an indepdently hosted WordPress blog, you can turn it into a Fediverse server using a special plug-in. This means that people on Mastodon etc. can follow your blog and interact with it.

You can install it on your blog by logging into the WordPress dashboard, go to Plugins > Add New, then search for "ActivityPub". The plug-in you want is called "ActivityPub" and is by Matias Pfefferle.

You can also see more info about it at wordpress.org/plugins/activity and the author is on the Fediverse at @pfefferle

Once it's installed, you can find the blog's Fediverse address in your WordPress dashboard's Users section, it's listed at the bottom of the user's profile options. You can copy and paste this address into the search box on Mastodon etc to interact with that user's blog.

You'll also see an ActivityPub section in the Settings menu.

Note : This plug-in only works on independently hosted WordPress-powered blogs. It doesn't work on Wordpress.com free blogs.

One of the hottest topics today is whether it’s possible to harness fuel cell technology to power data centres & for the data centre industry, ‘going green’ has rapidly become an important business imperative

Definitely weird that copying links to Video's from my favourite creators on YouTube for use on @joinmastodon rather than just clicking the Twitter button!!!!

I have to admit I'm really into using Mastodon, I'm spending almost no time on other Social networks (LinkedIn being the exception)

Mastodon for Tech Folks

This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
