Finally finished my two blog posts on why I’m weaning myself away from Twitter in favour of Mastodon:
What’s wrong with Twitter?
What is Mastodon and why should I use it?
Hi, nice read, I discovered some channels.
Two small corrections:
* under Morevna project: David DeRoy → David Revoy
* under @davidrevoy : he creates Pepper&Carrot and the universe it takes place in, but he's not involved at all in the Morevna project.
Can you fix that? Thanks :)
Whether that's desirable or not is another question of course.
Soundcloud -> @funkwhale
MeetUp -> @GetTogetherComm
LinkedIn -> @cloutstream
Google Calendar -> @calendar_social
Anything missing from the list? What else is needed?
New Pepper&Carrot Episode 26: "Books Are Great" is now published online!
Goodbye Google Analytics
As part of a larger post on the data middlemen that most don't even think twice about, and how it relates to your privacy online.

YES! It worked, the European Parliament rejected the copyright proposals!
MEP Julia Reda on what happens next:
@midgard It means that a small number of negociators won't decide the fate of the copyright directive, according to the wish of the copyright talibans, bypassing a vote in plenary.
It means that there will be a vote in plenary (in september) in which amendments can modify or remove article13 altogether. Had the mandate be adopted, this would have become very difficult if not impossible...
So it's a minor step opening the perspective for a new fight (plenary in September) to fix this mess.
@Framasoft Ces noti sont assez embêtantes … J'ai peur que ça repousse des gens. En attendant le support de fermer les annonces, vous ne pouviez pas les supprimer ou les remplacer avec une seule notification brève qui contient un lien ? Comme « avis aux utilisateurs de mirroir GitHub et de Framagit Pages / announcement to GitHub mirror and Framagit pages users ».
