If I've learned anything this last year, it's that we're not guaranteed anything and we should try to live out our dreams while we're alive to live them out. It is in that spirit that I reached out to a local college radio station (KPSU in Portland, Oregon) and proposed a new show; my proposal was accepted pending submission of a prerecorded pilot episode. The show is called Hack the Airwaves and I aim to explore various facets of hacker culture, hacker ethics, and the multitudes of kinds of hackers there are out there and the amazing projects they're working on.
Now that I've announced that here, I have a request for all the hackers out there (including and especially those who see hacking as much bigger than just infosec). I plan for my pilot episode to be called "What is a Hacker?" and for that, I need help. Contact me if you're interested in participating by sending me a ~1-7 minute recording of what being a hacker means to you.

If you have a github account and you're interested in #foss, #activitypub, and #federation, could you be a dear and go star/fave my fediverse server project, #gotosocial? The link is here: https://github.com/gotosocial/gotosocial
Normally I don't give a shit about faves and boosts and all that crap, but this project is important to me and I'm looking to set up some kind of Github sponsor thing for it, so stars on the project would be really really appreciated and help visibility!
Boosts welcome. Thank you! ❤️
Fediverse, we're looking for other creative people / artists who are into making live visuals, videos or animations. Please help us to connect with them!
Feel free to boost this if you know your followers are into this kind of creations/art, or please point us to their own accounts.
We Pixelflowers make colorful, psychedelic, glitchy live visuals - usually as a "video track" for electronic and techno music.
We use a laptop for loops, and other old-school equipment and techniques: camera feedback, old video mixers, analog video synthesizers.
We're looking for artists to connect with, and for moving imagery to play with.
For example, we could create processed/glitched versions of your videos/animations; we'd provide you with them (to reuse as you may wish) and we'd include them in our shows.
We're queer, NSFW-friendly and pro-social-justice - just so you know ;)
If you'd like to collaborate get in touch!
If you, or somebody you know, are interested in live streaming outside of the existing corporate ecosystems or want to try something new, the #owncast project is going to offer some free instances that we manage for people who don't have the experience or resources to do so themselves. We'll start small, but share this with your friends, family, non-profits, creative organizations or anybody who might want to live stream using Owncast.

A world without trust is not better – by @dhh
In case you missed it, Google Play recently removed the @Tusky Mastodon app without proper explanation.
Tusky is one of the best Android Mastodon apps, with nothing controversial in it at all. It's quite disturbing that Google can and does act like this.
An alternative and much better way of getting Tusky onto your Android device is by using the independent FOSS app store @fdroidorg
You can find instructions for installing F-Droid here: https://switching.software/replace/google-play/
