As technologists, we should talk in terms of concepts instead of products to discourage monopolies.

Don't say "just Google it", say "do a web search".
Don't say "I sent you the Excel sheet", say "I sent you the spreadsheet"

If people who don't know that there are search engines besides Google or that there are office applications besides Microsoft Office, they might ask what a search engine is or what a spreadsheet is. We should take this as an opportunity to educate people about alternatives.

Det er ein ny norsk instanse for Oslo med namnet !!!

Eit godt alternativ til snabelen! 😁

Bra med fleire norske instanser

#peertube 2.0 is out!

There is no reason to continue using Youtube.

I wish people recording opensource conferences videos could avoid uploading to Youtube...

Dette takker du ja til når du trykker OK på nett

Hver gang du åpner en nettside må du godta å gi fra deg informasjon. Men vet du hva du aksepterer?

Commercial/proprietary operations and free and open source communities can help each other out.

Tesla gets a great map from the #OpenStreetMap community, but it's not perfect. So the Tesla owners has an incentive to go and make #OSM better. Some might just fix their street, others might really enjoy it and become an important part of the community. No matter what: Everyone wins.

Here's a privacy tip for new Tooters.

2. Select any of these privacy settings for the toot you are composing:
🔸Public but unlisted
🔸Private n visible to ur followers only
🔸Direct (similar to Twitter DMs!)

Thug level of @Mastodon : 9000
Getting free promotion on Twitter 😂

Yes! Twitter should worry.
@Mastodon is going to climb to Top in no time soon!

Heitar det fediverset eller meir riktig med fødiverset på ? Er det "tut" som er den riktige oversettinga av "toot" eller burde det vore noko anna?
Ein elefant (mastodon) tutar vel med snabelen?


Started training a bot that tries to analyze and identify hate-speech on Twitter.

A few things became quite apparent after only a few days:

1. There are huge networks of (seemingly) fake accounts that like and retweet each other's posts. Someone is operating this at a _massive_ scale.

2. Reporting and banning fake accounts seems futile. You're fighting a hydra that spawns new accounts quicker than one can report them.

3. I'm feeling sick to my stomach just browsing through the logs.

Ikkje fått noko særlig med nye medlemmar i det siste. 🤔

Det må vi gjere noko med!

spent the better part of the day theming my phone's home screen...

Dadjokes on Reddit never fail to deliver on a rainy Sunday.
