鈥淐hecking my Mastodon feed lately causes me to yawn. I鈥檓 bored by the Fuck Google And Twitter statements鈥攑lease stop distributing useless messages on platforms where people already fucked Google and Twitter. Yes, Go is awesome and Linux For The Win, yadda yadda. Yes, everyone should get their COVID jab. Dear God, make it stop. Should I start a de-follow frenzy? Compared to Twitter, Mastodon is already so very tiny. I鈥檓 sure I鈥檓 still missing out on interesting non-tech savvy people to follow, but it鈥檚 hard to deny the homogeneity of the population there.鈥

Setting up Element & Matrix, finally. My handle is @nikoheikkila:one.ems.host for what it's worth.

So far so good experience with bridging Telegram, WhatsApp, Signal and IRC.

Any good spaces, or whatever they are called, around?

I'm following Asahi Linux with great interest. I should try it once I get my hands with a new M1 MacBook. My ideal laptop would have the form and hardware of Macs, but I wouldn't miss macOS at all.
