Some were asking whether there is a Fediverse alternative to Facebook Events/Groups.
There is one on the way!
It's called Mobilizon, and it had a successful crowdfunding to cover development costs. The beta version is due out in October.
It will be free, open and federate with ActivityPub.
You can follow it on here:

You can follow and help development here:
if you are seeking an artist to commission, consider using #lookingforartist as a tag for that
if you're looking for artist submissions to zines and similar projects, maybe use #callforart
artists of the fedi, consider making a tab just for those tags so you can easily browse for opportunities
search on here works best with hashtags so it'll make things easier for everyone

A documentary about pedophilia in Polish Catholic Church, in Polish but there are really good English subtitles, if anyone is interested. Shocking how they all protect each other. Probably most bishops in Polish Catholic Church were helping priests-pedophiles avoid punishment.#cathlolic #christianity #pedophilia
I'm pleased to announce the v1.0.0 release of Hometown, my Mastodon fork! It's up to date with Mastodon v2.9.3, and unique features include:
- Local only posting
- Full support for rendering incoming `Article` posts from federated blogs like Write.As
- "Exclusive" lists that let you follow someone without clogging up your home timeline
For more info, including rationale for each new feature, check out our wiki:

It seems like on fedi we need a symbol for people to put in their bio that represents “I am safe to interact with, capable of nuance and higher thought, and won't cancel you forever for a minor misstep that I pattern-matched on”.
Because lately I'm seeing a lot of trash floating down the public TL that's all smiles while lacking this required basic empathy for others.
Fediverse surveillance instance: Fedichive
There is a new instance¹ that tries to archive the whole Fediverse² and they plan to make a full text search available to everyone. I recommend you block their IPs.
What they are doing is illegal by the way, at least when it concerns EU citizens.

hey y'all remember when I encoded the hit film Hackers (1995) in 8M? and how it was entirely unrecognizable, low resolution, low framerate, and had no audio?
well, since then, Mastodon has upped its media limit to 40M
so, I present to you: Hackers (1995) in 40M, with sound, at 24FPS and full resolution! encoded with state-of-the-art tools and codecs for your viewing pleasure
I think I’ll read Ron Garret’s “How knowing Lisp destroyed my programming career”… of course if I manage to find that post, with its copy at derkeiler.com is down and Google Groups are unusable with this ~400-post thread (it brings my Firefox to tears)
and perhaps something about Deep Space 1 in general
