Thx to feedback from our amazing beta testers we were able to fix some problems in 2.0 beta 1. Beta 2 is now available to testers on Google Play. Custom emoji fonts and profiles on instances not running Mastodon 2.4 should work now.

Getting back into Klei's excellent Don't Starve after a long break. Seem to be better at it this time, I think Subnautica has been a good practice for the survival genre. Previously I was rubbish at own-goal-setting in sanbox games and thus got bored easily. Now I'm at least getting basic bases off the ground. Let's see how this goes...

Every Data Scientist should read Weapons of Distruction by Cathy O’Neil. She warns for the fact that mathematics is misused to turn subjectivity in Big Data into objective facts. She has many examples that will frighten you.

.@mhall119 is developing an ethical alternative to #MeetUp called #GetTogether.

There's already a flagship site up and running:

gettogether.community/

The dev is working on #ActivityPub support and is requesting feedback on what more needs to be done:

If you're interested in helping federate GetTogether, join the discussion at the link above.

Our release manager was at RossConf last month and recorded this video about building and contributing to Open Source projects. It's worth a watch :)

All new Tusky features have been merged to master. Now is a great time for translators to check if their localization is up to date! #tuskydev cc @groosha @Anna @m4sk1n @manimaran

Congrats @Chocobozzz and the whole @Framasoft team on reaching their funding goal for #peertube. There is still 12 days left to reach some stretch goals, but this is already an incredible achievement. #federation #p2p #video kisskissbankbank.com/en/projec

So my need for a new ereader is mounting...

Looking for suggestions on a decent hackable/FOSS friendly reader, mainly synced via Calibre, ideally with built-in backlight.

I hear Kobo is a good fit, but which model? Any experiences fedi-folks would care to share? Other devices/brands to check out?

Oh, and mark my words -- as soon as the copyfraud lobby starts losing the debate around #Article11 and #Article13, they *will* take out the big guns: child pornography and terrorism.

When (not "if"!) that happens, remember: I called it!

In the wake of projects like @Blender coming over to Mastodon, I figured it was time I did the same for the community I look after.

So, welcome to Mastodon, @foreman!

Let's take a breather from the Article13 mess, and focus on some good news:

#PeerTube has just passed the 50% mark on its crowdfunding with 15 days to go πŸŽ‰

Lots of people are unhappy with #Google's #YouTube, it is treating its users like it owns them πŸ€‘ πŸ‘Ž

The video world really needs the kind of ethical alternative that PeerTube offers 😎 πŸ‘

Help the video world declare indepdendence by contributing and/or sharing the crowdfunding:

@craigmaloney @Jo @jjg it's not actually an RSS Reader, its rather a federated reddit/hackernews alternative :) but im pretty sure it can be tuned into one with help of bots

Current status: building an IoT lab on my laptop, out of Sonoff devices, PlatformIO, Mosquitto (running on the laptop) and OpenHAB (on a VM, connecting to Mosquitto)

This is for my Prewired coding club tomorrow. Some of them are bored with abstract coding, so I figured some hands-on Open Source IoT fun would go down well ;)

11:20. and it *just* went dark. I love living in the North :P
