Large instances are not so bad when you think about the inverse.

The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous.

Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads.

Brave is a commercial company funded by venture capital. Its business model is selling advertising and cryptocurrency investment.

One of Brave's owners is Peter Thiel's Founders Fund. Thiel is also the head of Palantir ( and on the board of Facebook.

I do not recommend using Brave.

Not sure if most Mastodon :mastodon: website users know this but you can create custom columns in Mastodon with just a selection of the people you follow. The feature is called Lists. To access click on the three horizontal bars with tooltip text 'Getting Started'. Then click on Lists and add just the people you want. You can create multiple lists if needed. I know some people read the manual but others don't. You can also see all your favourited items in one place
#Lists #Mastodon #GettingStarted #Group

"Bundestag soll eigene Social-Media-Accounts bekommen
Das deutsche Parlament könnte bald stärker auf Facebook und Twitter stattfinden."

WTF!? 🤪

Anstatt diese Datenkraken zu füttern und damit dazu beizutragen, dass Menschen diese nutzen, wäre es mehr als konsequent darauf zu verzichten!

Warum nicht eine freie und offene Alternative wie Mastodon fördern? Eine Ankündigung in dieser Richtugn würde ich mir mal wünschen.

Please contribute to the list. apps are apps for running on GNU/Linux compatible for small screens. 📱

9 years ago this month, Eben Moglen delivered the oration that started it all: "Freedom in the Cloud."

This speech inspired the #FreedomBox project. Part history of the web and part call to action, this speech continues to orient our community today. It's worth revisiting each year.
