Did you hear about the ESO/EHT press conference that will take place tomorrow May 12 at 15:00 CEST? We'll present groundbreaking results about the Milky Way obtained by the Event Horizon Telescope collaboration.

After that, at 16:30 CEST, I'll be hosting a live Q&A event with a panel of EHT experts that will answer questions sent by the public -- that's you!

The press conference and the Q&A will be streamed here: youtu.be/rIQLA6lo6R0

Hello and good day to all musicians and music lovers of the fediverse!

Last year's FediVision event was a fun success, so this year we're doing it again.

#FediVision is a fediverse-wide music competition and celebration, inspired by the much bigger and better financed Eurovision Song Contest.

The main event and final voting period will be on Saturday, May 14th.

To organise the song submissions and all the info and FAQs, we've made a website: fedivision.party

Wijze woorden van Rob de Wijk: ophouden met achterlijke, agressie opwekkende retoriek over het verzwakken of uitschakelen van Rusland en doelstellingen veel beperkter maken, bijvoorbeeld zorgen dat de Russen niet de hele Donbas veroveren.

#RightToRepair will become an absolute necessity in the near future. Having all the supply chain completely fucked up and prices all over increasing like never before, people will need to learn how to do stuff themselves instead of pulling a credit card.

One of the unexpected joys of the fediverse over other places is the addition of weird domains appended on to everyone's usernames.

It makes the web feel like more than just four websites again.

It's both a signal of a smaller more intimate internet and also a larger and far more diverse internet at the same time!

If anonymity on the internet would become illegal, would you consider preserving your anonymity and/or privacy even if that may be a crime?
Had to abreviate the answers a little bit.

RT much appreciated, this really interests me.

In case you haven't seen yet, Distrowatch did a thorough review of postmarketOS v21.12 w/ Phosh: distrowatch.com/weekly-mobile.

This clearly was a lot of effort and highlights some issues worth fixing like the screen brightness controls allowing to turn off the screen completely. Thanks, @distrowatch!

"Thus saying 'People don’t want to run their own servers' is akin to saying 'People don’t want to start their own YouTube channel'. Both sentences contain the same amount of statistical bullshit."

Aaaand here it is:
projects.rys.io/ukrainvasion/

Changes in the #Wikipedia's map of #Russian invasion in #Ukraine often are very small and difficult to notice. So I made an interface where you can cycle through them easily.

It also lets you *compare* two different versions to clearly see differences.

A background script runs every 2h to fetch new versions of the map. The page refreshes hourly.

Also, it uses zero #JavaScript. None. Not a single line. It's all HTML and CSS.

So, Elon Musk has become a significant shareholder in Twitter. Jack Dorsey has said he regrets his role in centralizing the Internet. Net change? I'm guessing minimal. Twitter will keep sucking, and people will complain about Twitter sucking but use it anyway. OR, they could move to a better alternative like Mastodon. I realize I'm preaching to the choir posting about Mastodon on Mastodon, but still. Tell your friends.
