It just hit me: What Facebook, Instagram or Twitter will never accomplish, Mastodon apparently has.
Segregation at it's finest.
This is what Trumps wettest dreams are made of; on Mastodon, a single person gets to decide, whether, thousands, or even millions, are able to communicate with a certain social or interest group, or even individual - the admin.
Future, here we come!
Anyone here used https://radicle.xyz/ before? "A peer-to-peer stack for code collaboration".
If you're looking for a new node backend framework, look no further: https://github.com/nestjs/nest - Kudos to Kamil, the brains behind this beast!
Distrowatch gives you a pretty good idea, just how fractured open source really is: https://distrowatch.com/
"Some communities like to think of themselves as “perfectly tolerant”. This means that they would tolerate people that take actions to make marginalized people uncomfortable. When a community does this, they are actually being intolerant, and enabling abusers."
At last, someone in the FOSS community took the time to state the obvious: bigots are not welcome. Thank you.
It is proven! I am franzs on Keybase: https://keybase.io/franzs/sigchain#24cc0011fe3ef485fc4cfa865749f2fd1e222a0a1cda47e72075cd93ae355ddb0f
Why is software created using taxpayers’ money not released as Free Software?
* Tax savings: Similar applications don't have to be programmed from scratch every time.
* Collaboration: Major projects can share expertise and costs.
* Serving the public: Applications paid by the public should be available for everyone.
* Fostering innovation: With transparent processes, others don't have to reinvent the wheel.
We Have GuixSD (and so PantherX) on DigitalOcean from now!
I started a blog
The first post is about me getting over my irrational fear of makefiles. https://blog.neon.moe/2019/07/06/make.html
A stark contrast: Apple is bound to release a new MacOS on a yearly basis, no matter if longstanding bugs have been fixed, or the OS is ready overall - in most cases, .1, .2, .3 patches bring much needed stability, while engineers are already pushing for a completely new version.
At Panther, we're not tied to investors expectations and share price, so we can take our time: Release when it's ready.
Bear with us, we'll get there!
