@jtr This would be good to know. I'm so against using traditional dating apps as they go against my own personal values.
@avalos Meh, java isn't open source anymore. Maven was the final nail in the coffin there. It's admirable that they're trying, though.
@avalos OpenJDK is sort of open source, though they keep forcing binary versions that can't be compiled with previous versions yet they compiled somehow. That sort of bootstrapping problem might be unavoidable, but shouldn't happen repeatedly. What is avoidable is the fact that maven does nothing but download binaries and use them, and there is no way to get it to compile any source. So it's just... binaries and vague claims that we maybe compiled it from this source.
@jtr Seriously though, we need a way to build trust from innocent exchanges to letting them have more personal info like location, meeting places, relationship status etc. How would I go about convincing people it was okay for me to know that stuff, because currently most of us don't think that anyone should know that?
@Hyolobrika Oh no. If we had that, then instances wouldn't control your private encryption keys, and then how would Mastodon make sure private keys are only used in a way that is completely useless to everyone?
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!
