The wealth paradox 

Hi Fediverse 👋

what do you think of this new landing page design? ✨

Feel free to leave your feedback here 🙂

Wie cool #Syncthing eigentlich ist, hat glaub ich noch nicht viele erreicht. Ihr könnt syncen:
• Fotos
• Musikordner
• KeepassXC-DB
• Audioaufnahmen
– und das sind erst Möglichkeiten zwischen Android und PC! Keine Cloud nötig und die Geräte müssen nicht mal im selben Netz sein.

@bkhl @lightweight @alcinnz an even worse example: governments develop proprietary software that people are legally required to use, for example to do their taxes. 🤯

Encryption is like vaccination: it's not about protecting you from a leak, it is about protecting our society from a dictatorship.

As you journey into 2020 and a new decade, a piece of advice: stop searching for the meaning of life, why you're here, or what purpose you may serve.

Instead, CREATE it. Carve it out, fight for it, shape it yourself. Start living your best life TODAY!

Some fact checking for the electric vehicle denialists out there.

"Yes, electric vehicles really are better than fossil fuel burners"

Long ago, I thought I was special, different than everyone else, and I was surrounded by adults who reinforced that thought daily.

Eventually, I realized that I was special, different than everyone else, and so was every other person in the world.

They left out the important bit. We're each special and different and that's what makes us awesome.

I celebrate your special difference, friends, each of you. May it bring you the joy in the coming years that it has brought me getting to know each of you during the last few.


@szbalint Both Android and iOS have options to switch this off globally (Wi-Fi preferences -> Open network notification -> toggle off, or Wi-Fi -> Ask to Join Networks -> Off, respectively).

#YoMigroAMastodon or "I Migrate to Mastodon" is the top trending Twitter hashtag right now in Spain, and number 37 worldwide, following more censorship of leftist content and suspension of accounts on birdsite.

Give it another few years, folks, and Twitter will be dead. They can't keep playing this game much longer. Their top trending hashtag on their own platform is one that promotes moving away from the platform, as a result of their own actions. That's... incredibly bad.

Let's show our support for our Spanish comrades, and help them find a home on the Fediverse. It's important that the transition from Twitter isn't temporary.


Muestremos nuestro apoyo a nuestros camaradas españoles y ayúdelos a encontrar un hogar en Fediverse. Es importante que la transición de Twitter no sea temporal.
