This? Oh, it’s just the president of the FSFE (which is either not related to FSF or related to the FSF based on the day of the week and the alignment of the stars) praising Huawei for respecting your freedom™

Meanwhile, Huawei:

With “friends” like these…

Shouldn't be too hard to #XEP this into #XMPP, given justifiable demand. 🤔

Implementation-wise, it's a #PubSub job, with some complications around coping with #MUC (chatroom) changes.

I think it can probably be done without explicit server side support as all the bits needed are there already.

The rich don't pay their fair share, in fact Jeff Bezos reported so little to the IRS they gave him money (4k) to help with his kids and he fucking took it

A look at Dino XMPP Client. Great app. end to (multiple) end OMEMO encryption, decentralized + federated, chatrooms (private encrypted options), private chats, privacy. A nice option for Pinephone, but works on any Linux setup.

I just want a feed reader that gives me a Mastodon/Twitter/Facebook-like newsfeed when I open a new tab in Firefox. Is that too much to ask!?

I still have to save up €192 extra for the server bill before the 24th this month :blobcatscared: Please think about supporting♥️

@eliasr i migrated my code to gitea. it also reduced all my bug reports to zero because nobody can find it. :blobcatgoogly:

New opportunity for the fediverse:

Birdsite is working on ruining their platform by copying the worst part of Facebook, reacts instead of just likes.

From the start the worst trolls on FB has weaponized the laughter reaction against everyone working for a better world in any way, and to discredit every important news article. Posters post fake news and shit trying to get the hate reaction

It does nothing good, and everything worse

This is an opportunity to tell more ppl about the #fediverse

WAT?! You're telling me there has been a team at Facebook designing and implementing this feature, and not one person has stood up and asked:

"Uhm, isn't that super creepy, even for us?"

“How Apple screwed Facebook - Apple’s iOS 14.5 update has triggered an unstoppable collapse in Facebook’s ability to collect user data”

@sprkwd is a new network by the same people. is also a good option. It's just as old as Freenode, and targets FLOSS, but it also has a formal governance document and is controlled by a well-known non-profit, SPI.

You can also consider this whole situation a warning, and move to a smaller network. Just today I learned about existence of,, and There are probably dozens more out there, and some of them might target your niche specifically.


#Fedivision announcement!

The Fedivision Song Contest (#FSC) will accept entries until Friday, 28th midnight CEST, so we have enough time to find collaborators if needed (#FedivisionCollab), come up with beautiful songs for the fictional country or faction you would like to represent.
Also, we won't run into scheduling troubles with this other music contest named #ESC.
Spread the word, have fun! I'm looking forward to the weekend of the 29th/30th when voting will take place!

Zooming, googling.. rant 

Very irritating how time and again the lazy (or sponsored maybe?) use of brand names in the media helps to normalize it in everyday use in nouns and verbs of regular sentences.

We've had "to google" when we search. Now we are supposed to be "zooming" when in a vidcall. The hell not I am!

Recent example, the Guardian: "Using Zoom could help older people avoid dementia, study reveals"... waddayamean? Using Jitsi and it is all going downhill again?

Video calls in Dino are slowly coming together. We are already making successful OMEMO encrypted video calls! The feature is included in our nightly builds now, but there's still further work to be done. #dino #xmpp
