Internet, 2002; claiming that you're over 18 so that websites will let you in.

Internet, 2018: claiming that you're under 16 and in the EU so that websites cannot track your data

Developers: Fantastic, more timezones to support."

Step 3: no I was right the first time

Slack people are closing down their XMPP and IRC gateways. The embrace period is over, now moving over to extinguish.

They're so intent on owning your user experience that you can't even read the announcement without signing in.

I have a Slack account, so here's the lede:

> Saying goodbye to Slack’s IRC and XMPP gateways

> As Slack has evolved over the years, we’ve built features and capabilities — like Shared Channels, Threads, and emoji reactions (to name a few) — that the IRC and XMPP gateways aren’t able to handle. Our priority is to provide a secure and high-quality experience across all platforms, and so the time has come to close the gateways.

Then it goes on about their great screen reader support, and how their Real Time Message and Events APIs can be used instead of writing IRC bots.


gwolf also links to (front page links to a PDF with the actual content), which analyzes the phenomenon of free software projects organizing using centralized, non-free communication tools.

I'm late to the party, but AFAIK, removing the git history is not a violation of the AGPL. Git is not even mentioned in GNU Public licenses... If you fork a GPL project and distribute the binaries (or services in the case of AGPL) you have to give the source code to the users in any form. You can even send each user a floppy disk with the code, if that's convenient.

@BryanLunduke Loved the last show Bryan. You are my favorite boat rocker. Unconsenting fist bumps your way. I got your 6 bro.

Hahahaahahaha holy shit. Hiveway is a fork of Mastodon with blockchain slapped on top, selling ICO tokens, and John McAfee is involved. Wew lad

La supera abbondantemente
FI ed eguaglia il PD, Bagnai e Borghi eletti! Difficilmente si poteva sperare in un risultato migliore.

again a great chance to introduce many new people to the #fediverse.

#Vero is getting hudge attention over #twitter. It's a new social network, co-founded by a capitalist that left thousands of their workers unpaid in a dessert camp, and even stoped food, electricity...suply.

We can:
- make that visable
- highlight the anti-capitalist values of the fediverse
- expand on the beauty of federation and free software

-> tweet by using #Vero
-> rt to give tweets higher ranking
-> spread it

Why is Vero getting attention all of a sudden when Mastodon is clearly 100% the best?
