Faces of Open Source
An Interview with photographer Peter Adams and his Portraits of Revolutionaries.
A fascinating look at some of the people who built the foundations of modern computing and who continue to build and raise awareness.
@lohang Thanks! I'm coming from the #linux & #FOSS side of things. I think the biggest hurdle new Linux users face isn't technical, it's social and cultural. Open source doesn't make sense in our broader culture. But I'm very glad to see a federated social web in action. It's kind of a melding of anarcho-syndicalist philosophy and open source technology. Fascinating (I say in Spock voice.)
It may seem weird to use beta or nightly software as an end user, but I'm using Firefox Nightly in production at work and at home, and it's been a blast!
On my phone, I use Firefox Beta to reduce bandwidth usage.
Also, Firefox Beta is currently the fabled FF 57 aka the first output of "Project Quantum"... It's. Crazy. Fast.
#FOSS and respects your privacy, go for it!
#introductions Hello Mastodonians! I joined up yesterday after looking for #FOSS social media for a while. I'm a #linux fan and I write #SF&F. Two people whose blogs/vlogs I follow recommended Mastodon, @pzmyers and @ChrisWere. I'm from Minnesota. I'm a Ravenclaw who can be found out walking or riding my recumbent trike when I'm not in the library. I'm an older transgender queer gentleman (he/him.) I turn 51 on Monday. I'm also an #atheist.
I'm in my early 30s and originally from #Ireland but now in the USA. A civil engineer by day and a sleeper at night.
I suppose I'm an #INFJ which explains the awkwardness, sensitivity and difficulty in comprehending other people.
Realising that I'm #asexual helped fill a big piece of the jigsaw puzzle and helped me realise I'm not broken. It also made me comfortable with my affinity for femininity.

i made a #foss website for getting constructive feedback on how well you pass, because some people care about / need that. it's focused on being secure, fair, and constructive.
i think it's a useful tool so i want people to know about it (i don't make $ from it). but i don't really know how to advertise it
anyway, you can ask me questions about it if you want
I really like this attitude! Might seem contradictory at first – wasn't Bitcoin that thing people use to pay for things they're not supposed to be buying?
This is a reminder of what the Blockchain is about: a highly trustworthy record of some sort, filed by (potentially) everyone.
