I made a script that lets me turn my into an feed:
You can download it here: neil.mckillop.org/mastodon_rss
I mostly use the bookmark feature on Mastodon as a 'read later', this way I can save a list in my rss reader and mark them individually as read (my browser bookmarks etc also go into that category).

When you receive a commission asking: 'Please could you paint a Friday night at pub kicking out time, with all the fights, kebabs, and throwing up in gutters, but in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry?'

A fine example of what I can only describe as avant-Romanesque by Jim'll Paint It.

FediFollows has been on the #Fediverse for one year! 🎉 🎂

A huge thank you to everyone who suggested accounts so far, and to the accounts themselves 👏

Hand-curated directories are often seen as old-fashioned, but I think they have a role in getting people started on new decentralised social media.

FediFollows currently has 2.3K followers across a wide range of instances, so even people who don't follow me are more likely to see these interesting accounts in their hashtag searches.

Go Fedi!

FTR. I have no #facebook. No #instagram. I do have #mastodon, #pixelfed and #peertube. I don’t have #Spotify or #AppleMusic. I buy vinyl, CDs, DVDs that I rip. I never used #Alexa or #Siri. My #Homeautomation is built with the #NoDefaultGateway principle. Local network only.

watched The American Astronaut off the back of @neil's recommendation and it was super interesting. it was a little silly in places but visually it was so exciting, the costumes and set designs were fantastic and the high contrast black and white works so well, channelling the aesthetic of old silent films. the scene in the space barn and and the performance on Jupiter were a real highlights.

it says a lot about a film when i'm still thinking about it weeks later, a definite recommend!

@codeberg I deleted my #GitHub account three years ago. I used it to contribute to Free Software projects that only use this proprietary platform. When I started using GitHub I constantly tried (and failed) to convince projects to self-host using Free Software instead. As more and more Free Software projects I care about moved to GitHub, I ended up using it daily and it made me sad.

I started the @fedeproxy project this year to federate projects out of GitHub.

andrew lee just seized over 700 channels on freenode because they mentioned libera.chat in their topic.

This includes projects like openbsd, wikimedia, FOSDEM, etc.

archive.is/uHw1g shows 720 channels that match what is being checked.

here's an example log: gist.github.com/pushcx/ab2a1d5

boost this if you care about foss in any way.

Last week the UK Govt published a new draft of their #OnlineSafetyBill, making UK corps liable for jail time unless they censor "harmful" content (without defining harmful). Targeted at Big Tech it instead directly threatens Matrix. Read matrix.org/blog/2021/05/19/how & raise the alarm.
