If you have a github account and you're interested in #foss, #activitypub, and #federation, could you be a dear and go star/fave my fediverse server project, #gotosocial? The link is here:

Normally I don't give a shit about faves and boosts and all that crap, but this project is important to me and I'm looking to set up some kind of Github sponsor thing for it, so stars on the project would be really really appreciated and help visibility!

Boosts welcome. Thank you! ❤️

omg i did it. is open for registration as a public BETA.
It's a pubnix, a public access computer with servers, social spaces and programming tools to create and have fun together as a community!

So far it offers HTTP, Gemini, IRC, multiple userlands and shells and a BBS protocol.

It is still quite bare-bones and the BBS client and package manager is still a work in progress.

If anyone is working on a pubnix and would like to start a pubnix network (kinda like tildeverse). Let me know I wanna do that too :)

boosts welcome

I am putting a call out to the fediverse for people who rely on screen readers to use computers to critique Mixxx's accessibility. Input from people who are musicians would be especially appreciated. I want to consider your perspectives as we are planning how to rewrite Mixxx's GUI with QML. Please boost.

If you're interested in helping, reply to this toot and introduce yourself on our Zulip chat:

i've defended rms' pedantry
i believe in free software
i believe copyleft is essential
i believe AGPL3 is the best license

i disagree with those who say "software freedom isn't important these days" or that ease of use is more important

but every time RMS makes the news he undermines the FSF and the free software movement 🤦‍♂️

i just e-mailed them to discontinue my recurring donation and told them why

gonna increase my donation to software freedom conservancy instead

I hate gamification in apps. It feels particularly disingenuous when it's obvious they're doing it to promote regular use with crumbs of dopamine like daily streaks and achievements.

It's annoying how modern software development is usually done with an implicit assumption that everything we have so far is the culmination of incremental progress and advancement throughout history when in reality there are hundreds of ideas in old software that got lost along the way (despite not being superseded by anything better) and would be considered revolutionary if someone today implemented a half-working, hamstrung version thereof.

This is really cool:
I might try my hand at making a Scheme version for `syntax-rules'.

What's the point of hiding the standards ( et al.) behind a paywall anyway. I simply don't even understand what they're trying to achieve.
