I am largely over the incremental improvements in smartphones. I'm holding out for the #Librem5 and then hoping that I can make that my full time portable device for 5 years. Apple and Google aren't doing anything interesting on mobile that doesn't involve taking control of more aspects of the internet and claiming money for it, so I might as well go to a Linux platform and control my own destiny a bit.

So spooky to read comments on articles about deleting FB. People saying they tried to create a "shadow" account months after leaving and finding FB suggest all their old friends and ads for things they've searched on their precious iPhones.

Anyway, just pulled the plug after deleting posts and a ton of comments and likes for the past week.

Yay, I'm going to see #BFMV in April in #Tallinn <3 Anyone going? I'm going alone so company welcome!

This band has been super important for my mental #health during the divorce process. I reflect my emotions through music and without the music I would not be able to process some of those emotions. I owe it to these guys to go and see them live.

Oh sure, when a million dollar company puts files on my computers that track my activity its 'cookies' and 'business', but when I put files on their computers that extract information its 'hacking' and 'illegal' #computing #internet #privacy #bigdata #doublestandards

This also means I might finally have an answer to the age-long question: what phone should I get next. The answer seems to be: something modern that supports #SailfishOS.

I had two reasons to consider jumping ship from Sailfish:
1. Signal only available as an Android app, with Android emulation causing it not to work all that great;
2. lack of full memory encryption.

Whisperfish solves 1.; and next releases of SailfishOS supposedly will solve 2.: blog.jolla.com/sailfish3/

The Big 1.0. – Riot

Riot, the default and most mature client for #Matrix just hit 1.0, with a huge redesign <3 If you have ever checked Riot before, but didn't like the looks - please give it another try! If you haven't tried it but like things like, dunno, #Slack for example, have a try and you might be pleasantly surprised.

#Opensource #decentralized chat and team tool with a no compromises #UI <3

@whirli Ideally, Nokia should have done with Maemo what Google did later with Android. That is, go to other manufacturers and yell "TAKE IT! Take this platform and make your stuff, as many devices as possible! You don't have to worry about writing your own OS anymore, and you don't owe us a thing. It's ready, it's universal, it's versatile, TAKE IT!"

@cwebber

@Jameshjacksonjr Looks like this is my next "phone"; thanks for the tip!

masto: are you sure you wanna block the whole instance? what about the nice people there? what if you're losing out? why not just block this one shit head instead of all of them? why not-

@paul Even the part at the end is terrifying cuz it will still eat up time out of your life, even when you're actually innocent. Those who aren't able to afford months without working will be pushed deeper into debt slavery.

As someone from the USA who has had to endure similar wide-sweeping, "guilty until proven innocent" bills like the Patriot Act, this is clearly set up to discourage activism against rich ppl & their ill-gotten gains. It WILL be enforced w/ this bias.
