I see quite a lot of #Science posts expressing concern if The Public will follow their authors' #TwitterMigration over on here.

Here's the thing: they don't even have to. Every #Mastodon account has an #RSS feed. For example, here's mine:

Every hashtag has an RSS feed as well (as seen from a given instance), for example:

Your audiences can follow you without ever setting up an account on fedi, with any RSS reader.

The Fediverse is Mastodon, Pleroma, Diaspora, Friendica, Hubzilla, Osada, and all their friends, federating. 👍
But what do we call all the silos, the ad-based family of Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and friends? It’s the Adverse! A universe founded on ad serving. And a reminder that they offer plenty of adversity. All the adverse silos stand alone, like rocks, like islands, like Alcatraz. 👎
And what about Orkut, Google Wave, Google+ and other networks that have come and gone. This is the Necroverse.
Sometimes networks that seem alive today slide into the necroverse. Let’s hope we keep our network alive. Here’s to many happy years in the fediverse! 😁🥳

Do you want to upload a large file on the go, but your internet connection isn't good enough? Let your server grab the file directly using its own internet connection!

Was watching a great talk on Signal trending on HN today. Was pleasantly surprised that the speaker really valued an open system and federation!

Something about his username was familiar... Took ~5min for me to realize it was! Excellent presentation my good sir!

"$WEBSITE is better on the app!!" says website whose app is only "better" in the sense that it does not have popups telling you it is better on the app

Hello folks,
we develop small #OpenSource #Apps for #Android.

Our apps:
- #Weather: Weather app with data from OpenWeatherMap
- #LibreTranslator: Small translation app based on LibreTranslate

Both apps are available for download in #FDroid and the source code can be found on #Codeberg.

ufw (a firewall) uses rule numbers when you want to, say, delete a rule. Does it display the rule numbers when you list them with ufw status?

No, of course not, that would be too easy (you’d win the game right away, where’s the fun in that?)

So, instead you have to type ufw status numbered.

Remember kids, beautiful defaults are for newbs and losers. Real gamers play in hard mode.

jkuester boosted is the official German government portal for doing government-related paperwork online.

They have now created their own Mastodon instance at which contains some official accounts. You can find them on the instance's directory page:

➡️ (in German)

This is a really promising sign! The Fediverse can allow citizens to interact with public officials without having to give away personal data.

Was recently reflecting on this excellent piece by @jgoerzen comparing and contrasting p2p/federated/centralized systems:

The drawbacks for p2p and centralized systems seem to be mostly inherent to the technical requirements necessary for things to function.

The downsides of federation are more practical (who/how deploys and maintains the servers). Good reminder that organizational structures like technical "communes" need more emphasis!
