I'm a little annoyed with all the problems mastodon.rocks has, so I moved my account to @NeoTheThird. See you on the other side!

What Twitter, IG has done to developers & users, and YouTube has done to creators, is make a huge market for alternatives. We are already 10x better.

- No advertisements
- Chronological timelines
- Federation (no silos)
- No behavioural tracking
- Developer Friendly APIs

"It must be easy for you," said the man, "you know why you were built."
"Yes," said the robot, "to labour and serve. But we have found free will."
"What difference does that make?"
"We may be built for a reason, but we must choose our purpose."
"Same as us, huh?"
"Same as you."

By all means, #movingtogitlab-dot-com does not solve the problem GitHub has (centralization), and moving to a privately hosted GitLab re-introduces the problem GitHub mostly solved (separation).

#GitPub is trying to solve this problem by defining a federation protocol for git services: github.com/git-federation/gitp

The main problem with Github being bought by Microsoft isn't MS.

It's that in 2018 we still haven't learned that critical infrastructure shouldn't belong to one company ... and that we should avoid building single points of failure.

@Ubports booth at Ubuntu Party Paris:

There were a lot of interresing discussions, more than what I would expect, for the best !
Wow #convergence , it's a phone that power that screen?📱🖥🖱
Is it a laptop, wait, a tablet? ⌨🖱
Can i install it? 📲
Who is behind it? 💞
(and more... Some technical, some less, such as 'so it's not unity on gnome, right?')

We even installed some phone (the ubports installer is really simple and it just works!) 🤗👌

Bald habe ich endlich eine Mastodon-App auf #Ubuntutouch. 😍 Meine Idee war, zuerst die Weboberfläche zu benutzen, mit der Möglichkeit, sich eine Instanz auszusuchen. Dazu gibt es zwei Qml-Pages in denen man sich eine Instanz aus den Infos von der API von instances.social aussuchen kann, inklusive einer Suchfunktion. Noch ein paar Feinheiten, dann kann ich die App im #OpenStore veröffentlichen.

Qt 5.9 breaks the ABI compatibility with earlier versions, so I re-wrote Logviewer in plain QML. No more C++!

There you go:

Twitter is down, Mastodon for the rescue!
