Hey #FreeSotfware lovers!

We need you to help us grow #PeerTube into the YouTube alternative it can become.

Spread the word about #JoinPeertube joinpeertube.org, and fund the development of important features on frama.link/joinpeertube

politics, space 

as much as i understand the folks who say "instead of trying to terraform mars, why not fix the problems here on earth?", i kinda disagree.

right now on earth, we have around 200 nations, thousands of politicians, millions of important companies and over 7 billion people.

reforming the entire world around a different set of ideals like that would be extremely hard.

by comparison, building an (environmentalist/socialist/libertarian/...) settlement in outer space might even be easier.

@Gargron @charlag wouldn't extending the tag search functionality do that in a more transparent way that supports mastodons open ethos more?

Facebook put fake red dots to suggest you'd have new messages to rush you into agreeing to their tracking. It's time for companies to start value their users' right to privacy. That's why we ❤️ Mastodon. It has quickly become our preferred social media platform. Fighting for privacy is what we at Tutanota do every day: tutanota.com/#team

Meanwhile in Ubuntuland, the OpenJDK 10 package is called openjdk-11-jdk. There is a reason, but it's still funny.

This sign on the side of the highway says 'Falling Rocks.'
C'mon, falling is fun but that's a little much.

I’m looking for a #FOSS alternative to things like “find my friends” or the old “google latitude”. Basically I want to allow a few trusted people to know where I am and vice-versa.

It needs to be cross-platform (iOS, Android, Linux, perhaps web for viewing) and any server components need to be self-hostable (mqtt based perhaps?).

I’d build it myself but I don’t really want to support android and iOS 😂
