Linux and “open source” in a nutshell, from the horse’s mouth:

“There is a genuine reason to worry. My desktop is free but my data and applications (which run in the cloud) aww not … what do you care about more – just that the code is open or also about the business practices as well?”

* You can only login via FB (to be fair they're working on a native login):

I can see why normal people just throw their hands up in the air about data privacy. I've put so much effort into this stuff, but instead of feeling like a super-cool guy in a spy movie, I feel more like a guy with a half-working phone and no decent emoji input

🧠 look at this one though it's so relevant to my interests

👨 because you wrote it, asshole

suddenly, something is making the columns in my mastodon web client keep slamming back up to the top when there's an update, losing my place while reading the feed
