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.
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: https://tutanota.com/#team

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 😂
🤖 JS, Python, Servers, Web... All the good stuff
