Google is bringing AMP to Gmail not for your convenience or to increase speed, but to change your mailbox into a platform for marketers so that the ads jump into your face. Better switch to an email service that respects your right to privacy. 😉
5 Reasons why AMP for email is bad:

Alright! We're now running 0.9.99!

Two notable updates on this release:

1. The MastoFE has switched from the Tootsuite (or vanilla) Mastodon to the Glitch-soc fork!

2. One of the people who signed up told us that they thought the registration form wasn't very clear. Especially the Bio was confusing. Naturally we made an issue on the pleroma issue tracker, in less than the day the issue was resolved and now we have it on our server! Check out the registration form to see the changes!

A big thanks to Dave (sry, I don't know your account on fedi) for implementing this change so quickly

Also a big thanks to the person who gave us this feedback! You can now say that you have contributed to bringing a better user experience to Pleroma 😉



Il y a genre un mois, j’ai parlé de faire une instance généraliste belge pour le fediverse, où on pourrait dire d’aller s’inscrire les gens.

Bah voilà.

C’est :). C’est géré collectivement avec 2 autres personnes.

Un wallon :wal: , un flamand :vl: et un bruxellois :bxl: .

This is a note to people moving their repositories blindly to do you know Google is actually a huge investor in Gitlab?

The issue is not about Microsoft buying Github. The issue is about centralization and silos.

You do not solve that by moving your data from one silo to another.

You solve that by relying on small providers you can trust, or by becoming a provider yourself.

This extension makes a few layout tweaks to the top panel and removes window decorations to maximize the working space.

The Mother of All Demos

Exactly 50 years ago, Douglas Engelbart made a demonstration in San Francisco of almost all the fundamental elements of modern personal computing, including a computer mouse.

Thanks to all those pioneers that made the world we know today ; will we have the same inspiration for the next genetations ?
