Every time you start seeing articles about a declining fedi population, Twitter pulls some shit and there’s another spike (followed by slow decline).

In the end, with every spike, the network effect of this place gets more and more solid. Honestly most of the folks I’d want to talk to are already here and I also found NEW community so I’m happy to have fully migrated.

Just looking forward to the critical mass when it becomes more widely appealing to artists so I can follow them all over here.

Happy #BlackHistoryMonth !

Leland Melvin is the only person to have both been drafted in the NFL and been an astronaut. But, frankly, he deserves perpetual fame for his official NASA photograph.

"The tech sector seems to be betting that these massive, algorithmically orchestrated firings will not only cut labor costs, but also once again remind increasingly empowered tech workers of their insecurity, and the power the companies still hold."

Still sad to have missed #FOSDEM, but all the pictures of packed auditoriums with 5-10% masking were 😰😞

Like, even before COVID we all got con flu so many times. Why wouldn't we deploy technological countermeasures. I don't get it.

I guess people still write security-sensitive software in C, so it makes sense.

«[…] However, the question that's essential to consider is, "What's in it for the nonhumans?" Taking another living being into your home and hopefully into your heart is a huge decision, and it's not the right move for a good number of people because they will not be able to give their new companion what they really need. Choosing to live with a companion animal is a two-way street and all participants have to benefit—it's got to be good for you and your new friend.»

Thanks for a great day at #Fosdem everyone!

So many wonderful people asking me about #Hachyderm and how we plan on approaching democracy with #Nivenly.

Thanks again to the organizers and @LastChain for helping us get the videos online quickly.
