has either been hijacked or did a bait & switch. New developer, app uninstalled from phone behind my back, now requires payment on Play Store.

I saw some icons go but it's taken a week to figure it out. All Mastodon clients were uninstalled.

The protocol is freaking fascinating. A blogging site (WriteFreely), a video sharing site(Peertube), and a social network (Mastodon) all communicate using the same standard, enabling the decentralized services to share freely with each other.

At work I try to push the idea of password managers to non technical co-workers every time I can. I've noticed that everyone offers resistance, everyone's skeptical, and they'd rather use the same password everywhere.
