Meet #Phosh 0.13.1, featuring "Clear all" notification button.

Full changelog here: gitlab.gnome.org/World/Phosh/p

Now available on our ALARM repository.

Here's how I understand different federation protocols:

ActivityPub: General content sharing, doesn't need to be critically real-time
Matrix: Real time messaging and communication
Blockchain: Currency turned into unregulated casino

Even after looking at the product page I'm not sure what the selling point of iPhone 13 is vs the 12

"Representatives from the Mastodon project didn’t immediately respond to an email asking if they shared the critics’ concerns."

Wait, what? I didn't receive no e-mail from Ars Technica. Where did they send it?!

@zkat I agree that today most people who are interested in #blockchain do so for the purpose of speculation or investment. However, Bitcoin was created to provide an alternative to the banking system, and no one could predict what would happen financially. Some people see the blockchain as more than a way to get rich. 😄 On the other hand I don't know what NFT is, I can only speak for blockchain in general. 😅

artists deserve to get rich! I fully support this! But this isn't really what NFTs are about. They're not for the artists. They're for the speculators, and the artists are being suckered in (and even exploited through stolen art) into a pyramid scheme where only the rich win.

Literally the only real reason anyone cares about anything blockchain-related is because they think if they speculate, it'll make them rich. There's literally no other reason. And they're willing to risk the future of this world to become rich off of pure speculation. Ugh.

😡 NFT - I'm in total ideological conflict with the idea AND the technic.
Today I saw my art " Yin and Yang of world hunger" (license: CC non commercial/non derivative) on OpenSea platform posted by someone. What a shame. #nftart is open door to all type of scam...

Twitter: NO, ANARCHY! NO, TRUMP! NO, BIDEN!
Mastodon: hey wanna look at some pictures of cats

Anyway if you're wondering what you've been missing on Twitter, today Twitter started instantly autobanning anyone who said the word "Memphis" and did not figure out what had happened and fix it for like six hours

The entire time people were experimentally tweeting "Wait, do you really get banned if you say 'Memphis'?" and getting banned

They don't seem to understand that one can view any content with Tusky and that it is not possible for the app developers to check any of it.

I don't really like Signal. I don't like Telegram either. Wire is acceptable, but also clunky. It kinda sucks that people have to basically choose and commit to one app with all of their contacts now, if IM apps were federated like e-mail and Mastodon you could just keep talking to your friends from wherever.

Okay guys it's been 9 hours you can stop saying XMPP now.

@Gargron that reminds me, I need to finish setting up that Prosody server for the protocol-that-shall-not-be-named.
