Pinned toot

I am working on a desktop app for Mastodon. Key goal is to have a seamless experience for multi accounts across multi instances. It is still in alpha stages. So far you can login with multi accounts, view the main 3 feeds, boost, favorite, and view notifications. Help would be greatly appreciated. I will be building out GitHub issues for all the features to get parity with the webapp. It is written in using the framework github.com/wakingrufus/mastodo

Dear Mastofriends,
do you have good examples of "lowtech" websites?

Using less assets/fonts/energy, but still being nicely usable and with cool aesthetics...

And yes, I already know solar.lowtechmagazine.com, this is one of the best examples... :)

Hugs and kisses for your suggestions and boosts!

Ive always said that the GPL isnt restrictive enough and this gab shit is prime example. And I get it none of this shit would have taken off if capital couldnt exploit it.

Today I learned that Rocket.Chat, an open source team communications platform similar to Slack, allows federation! I am a big fan of IRC and XMPP because they are open protocols that allow anyone to set up their own private server. XMPP further allows you to federate your server to other XMPP servers. I definitely need to keep an eye on Rocket.Chat now!

I got an email from Verizon asking me to sign up for an FCC contractor to install a monitoring device on my network to help measure internet speeds across America. Imagine saying yes to this. Imagine even considering it

More Gab bullshit 

So few tech workers have had visible unionization efforts, and I’m glad to see this reporting nytimes.com/2019/07/08/technol

when you think about it, the idea that software should scale is actually really weird. "sure this garden is nice, but how nice can it be if it doesn't grow to cover the entire surface of the earth?"
