If you're on mastodon.social and worried that you will lose followers if you migrate to a different instance:

When other instances block mastodon.social, you will definitely lose followers.

@punky A variety of reasons, including a lot of harassment from m.s users hitting other instances, a lack of moderation on m.s to deal with issues (m.s basically only has one active mod and can only do so much alone), the fact that they refuse to close registration and keep growing in spite of their lack of moderation... these are just a few.

My instance has m.s silenced and let me tell you, my federated timeline is so much better for it.

everyone should read about the lucas plan, and how a group of workers briefly took control to produce technology for the common good

Reminder that it's a moral imperative for other countries to break US pharma patents.

What would you like to see in our solarpunk future?

It's so easy to talk about what you don't want in the future, but harder to pin down what you do want. So my idea is simply to capture and share your ideas the kind of things you want to see in a solarpunk future.

You can read my post, which describes this in a bit more detail: cafe.sunbeam.city/~/GwenfarsGa

Then feel free to start submitting your ideas, which I'll collate them and create a new post to inspire and share.

I have no excuse. I bought a big thing of planting soil locally and have some plants ready to be repotted or prepped for root growing. My smol motivated moment has damned my procrastination. Well played self.

Just an FYI for people interested in the post. I've been sent lots of great ideas which I'm collating. Due to ill health I won't be up to publishing it until the end of this week though.

So if you would still like to submit something, please do. I'm still 'on it', just, well, slowly :)

If you don't know what I'm on about, see: cafe.sunbeam.city/~/GwenfarsGa

#opensource software became very common. Meanwhile patents are still used to gain more control over our basic needs such as #food.

There's an initative in #germany wanting to change that:

#OpenSourceSeed
👇👊💪
- Fight market concentration in the seed sector
👇❤
- Promote food security through diversity
- Restore crop seeds as #commons
- Seed must be utilised freely
- Use open-source licensing against patents and variety protection
👆❤

new music release! A new EP inspired by solarpunk called ASTRAL.

All tracks were made using 100% FOSS. All tracks are CC. If you have a cool project and don't want to attribute me just ask me and I'll probably OK it. Everything is pay what you want with no DRM. 💖

Enjoy!

Good afternoon 💚 I hope you're having a nice Sunday, and that your life is full of lovely things.

The other day I wanted to share a video.

YouTube wanted me to login, give them my real name, provide an email address (wouldn't take a throwaway for an answer) and a phone number to text me (I don't have a phone).

I went to a #Peertube instance instead. They accepted my throwaway email address and my video. Didn't ask for personal information. And the upload and video playback worked great.

True story.

So, thank you @Chocobozzz and everyone else who worked on Peertube.
