Just like how cigar packs have some warning on them, disks containing proprietary software should warn people that the software inside violates your rights as it's not #FreeSoftware.

Ugh, RIP Reddit.

I thought it was fake or something but it's not, they're effectively converting upvotes into crypto coins:

And in this dystopian little promo they pitch how monetising your every tiniest action is actually freedom:

Time is running out.

Bring #cyberAttack awareness of #BigTech to the streets (and make friends)…

Suggestions:

a) print out #fediverse flyers and give them to people you see or meet on your commutes (break the ice by asking them, "Hello, just wondering how tired you might be of the #algorithms dictating what you can see and say online.") (see # fediFlyer),

b) get some #coreflute (ie. durable plastic #signs) from a #signage shop, and…

How much would the billionaire tax raise?

A lot!

$275 billion from the top 10 billionaires alone—and probably more than $500 billion for billionaires as a whole

Here are the numbers for the top 10 billionaires—and a short thread explaining how we can know all this

TruthSocial, Fediblock, pol adjacent 

As you may have seen in the news today, Trump's media team has set up their own social network "Truth Social".

What they aren't admitting is it's actually just a Mastodon instance with all the Mastodon branding removed, including all of the messages acknowledging that it is FOSS, as required by the software's free open source licence. This is breaking the terms of the licence, and is essentially stealing the software from the volunteer community which made it.

This kind of behaviour cannot be accepted by anyone who believes in FOSS. Keeping to the requirements of a FOSS licence is fundamental to building software together. If powerful people get away with stealing FOSS, people may be reluctant to build FOSS in the first place.

Hopefully someone will take legal action, but in the meantime we can block these instances in case they try to federate:
