So hey, is anyone starting any art-specific servers? The "I am an artist" category on joinmastodon.org only lists 2 that are actually themed around art (one if you discount photography), and mastodon.art is invite-only so there is definitely a need here

Some more software development statistics from HackerRank. Apparently made a surprising showing alongside research.hackerrank.com/studen

Saw a tumblr post warning people that twitter might do the same thing as tumblr to artists, which yes, they very well might. The fediverse should prepare to accept new users, more art-themed servers might be good.

Ignore the misleading click-bait headline. has some value but now that they are hitting the trough of disillusionment weโ€™ll soon have productive applications of it without all the buzzword bingo noise. The article even mentions a couple. dia.so/2JL

I am re-listening to it and I think the latest episode of @librelounge captures the soul of what I hoped for for the show librelounge.org/episodes/episo
First we put FOSS in a cultural context and then critique it. Some of that is a self-critique, and thus not easy for me to do, but I think it's important. There's a lot of stuff we value too, and try to highlight that.

I don't think every episode needs to be like this but I do hope we can keep up that "heart" of the show.

Australia just made Man-In-The-Middle attacks required by law. They call it "the ghost" and every #encryption connection has to be open to the government.

Good luck with that.
