will become an absolute necessity in the near future. Having all the supply chain completely fucked up and prices all over increasing like never before, people will need to learn how to do stuff themselves instead of pulling a credit card.

Sunday morning is a great time to post an

Hi! I’m a professional, who has been into and for 25y. To give back to the community I run ioc.exchange and sfba.social .
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my wife and two kids. I came here 11y ago from , which is my hometown. My alma mater is , where I studied computer science. I was born in East Berlin, behind the iron curtain.

Be kind and hack the planet!

PSA: To everyone who is #NewHere, and those who are not.

When you use hashtags it can help those using a #ScreenReader to use #CamelCase. Screen-readers can then find and pronounce the constituent words, rather than trying to pronounce the whole thing.

It's not essential, but it's one way we can make the Fediverse more welcoming.

WOW. Yeah I've been on mastadon for like only five days now but I'm already flabbergasted at the world that should have been... w3.org/TR/activitypub/#Overvie

Like literally how did we all agree to just NOT have interoperable social networks??? Looking at the activity pub docs makes it clear how ridiculously easy that would have been. You want my content? Just GET my outbox. Want to send me something? Just POST to my inbox. The server can be anything you want, just format your messages in this (VERY INTUITIVE!) way. It's so simple it's STUPID.

I'm very new to all of this, so I'll admit that there's a lot I don't know, but what is painfully obvious right now is how, yet again, the tendrils of Capitalism have fundamentally altered the STRUCTURE of the Internet to make it less open, less empowering and generally WORSE for most users. However, what's also becoming clear is that it does not have to be that way, and being here is in some small way, bringing about that better possible future.

App privacy labels show stark contrasts among messaging apps 9to5mac.com/2021/01/04/app-pri

TL;DR:

Signal - perfect!

iMessage - very good (and defensible).

WhatsApp - huh, that's starting to seem a little sus.

Facebook Messenger: oh hell no.

I think it would be cool if #mastodon had #community groups like subreddits or bird app's communities which you can join from any instance and find people with similar interests and talk about specific topics. Right now something like this is only available on the instance level, if even that, and it locks people enjoying multiple hobbies and interests.
