an attempt to collect everyone’s blogs - so as to not let precious non-commercial content go unread and unnoticed - is likely the only time i’ll ever ask:

You don't have to solve a friend's problems.

Just listening and letting them know you're there is so helpful. ❤️

In order to become truly popular Mastodon needs to become much more user friendly.

As of now it's really hard to use.

Even though I have been using TweetDeck for years and am used to the interface I struggle.

The black background, the inability to view my favorites without hassle (how can I display them, I always forget it?), following others...

All of these are really poor choices.

Even within a relatively simple web app like Edith notes I notice that there's Google stuff once again - fonts and jquery links.

Google links hardcoded into Free Software apps is a problem, because it allows the company to spy on the activities of users. Not the content, but who uses what and how often.

The punk rock internet – how DIY ​​rebels ​are working to ​replace the tech giants

Today, in The Guardian: theguardian.com/technology/201

“I got into the web because I liked the democracy of it,” says Kalbag, who has just published a book titled Accessibility for Everyone… “I want to be able to be in a society where I have control over my information, and other people do as well … I think we have to have technology that serves everybody – not just rich, straight, white guys.”

Have you taken a moment to breathe in the last hour?

Hey @Mastodon@mastodon.at team. I discovered a bug: hashtags stop working after a slash. See my latest toot.

Mastodon gets apparently already flooded by mainstream bad news. The worse the more clicks. When you hate it don't share it. I know I do it wrong as well. I had to tell you though.

I saw this great movie called "The Florida Project" (it's opening widely today, I think! Recommended!) and wrote a little bit about what it says about power and control parkerhiggins.net/2017/10/the-

The species name Least Weasel is actually a misnomer. It's the same amount of weasel compressed into a denser form. awoo.space/media/aox2mrnlVDeMA
