Dear so-called “UX” designers, the opposite of “yes” isn’t “not now”, it’s “no.”

Dear #TwitterMigration folks, an important tip on #privacy on the fediverse:

There is none.

This is a public medium; please treat it as such. Just as you have no privacy on Twitter (Elon Musk can read all your DMs), you have no privacy on the instance you’re on (your administrators can read all your posts).

You can set the visibility of a post but that’s a viewing suggestion, not a privacy guarantee.

Think of your posts as postcards, not sealed letters, and you should be fine.

It seems many old friends and people I interacted with somehow find me here by #TwitterMigration tag.

I'm glad that migration to decentralized and ethical alternatives continues.

BTW, there are decentralized alternatives to instagram, reddit, youtube, meetup and other platforms. All those alternatives are federated and can interact with mastodon and each other:

Journalist

I quit my job to help save the earth for my kid

Deniers have tried to claim that informing kids about the climate crisis amounts to child abuse. But actual child abuse would be doing nothing to prevent it. So, I did something.

the timing of this influx of new people to the fediverse that is largely self hosted/run by volunteer sysadmins and the looming openssl patch is... interesting... to say the least...

i hate you elon! #mastodon used to be a quiet place, i could work or play with my modest home infra and prepare a blog post all while checking the stream like maybe once or twice a day...

now, today it's like a torrent of new faces and a shower of introductions, no time for serious things anymore =)

p.s. c'mon now, when are you gonna do #facebook?

BTW, @pepicrft, I've noticed that you're continuously building stuff.
I wonder if there's some synergy between your hobby building and our hobby building.
We could book an intro call[1] or exchange some texts, whichever you prefer.

@jonn True! I've been playing around with a little self-hosted social media codebase of my own, but in true NIH fashion I thought of my own protocol and not ActivityPub. Now I wonder if I should make it support ActivityPub and how big of an undertaking it would be.

Registration is open at social.doma.dev. Please no conspiracy theorist scum, russia and trump supporters, antivaxers.

Boost for outreach.

I'm back here because the bigger outreach of spreading the word about the hardships of Ukraine on twitter isn't worth using a platformed owned by mr. musk, the russian asset.
