Expansion of activities in the Fediverse:

We are opening the university's own Mastodon instance social.uibk.ac.at to all 5,000+ employees today: https://www.uibk.ac.at/en/newsroom/2024/mastodon-for-all-university-employees/

This step is based on the communication team's fundamental commitment to non-profit, data protection-friendly and open-source media - set out in the position paper "Open Science Communication": https://www.uibk.ac.at/de/public-relations/kommunikation/open-science-communication/

I do most of my #screenshots with the default tool from @gnome. Sometimes, however, when I like to highlight elements, I prefer to use #Shutter. ๐Ÿ”— https://shutter-project.org

Today, I accidentally came across this older article from @itsfoss and learned, you can actually also use @GIMP for taking screenshots. (file > create > screenshot)

It''s pretty cool if editing is necessary since it opens the image in #Gimp.

As of late I am deeply conflicted about #GodotEngine ๐Ÿ˜ฟ

+ I love the design philosophy; I think it's [one of / the] best libre general-purpose 3D-capable engine out there. I use it and promote it.

- I've learned shocking things about reduz (Juan Linietsky) that made me really sad and I don't trust him in regards to money and power within the project.

I don't want to go into specifics, because there's too much to cover in a toot.

Don't downplay "haters" without evaluating their points.

@itsfoss just published an article for April Fools' Day.

https://news.itsfoss.com/microsoft-ubuntu/

It's really one of the better April Fools' pranks I've ever come across. It's grounded and almost believable that it actually had me there for a minute! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Good one, guys!

Activitypub or Atproto ... one item that both Mastodon have in common with Bluesky is amount of "spam" links and accounts boosting those "spammy" accounts

Several "award winning art / photo" profiles I saw had 5 or more links including their pinned post

Win goes to Bluesky since they seem to have better control of that ... for now

Weโ€™re seeking input from #FOSS maintainers as we design a fellowship program pilot. We want to test a support mechanism that addresses structural issues in the FOSS ecosystem, and support maintainers who work on open digital infrastructure in the public interest.

If you maintain open source projects, we would be very grateful if you could take ten minutes to respond to the survey:
https://survey.sovereigntechfund.de/968766

Please also repost and share with FOSS maintainers you know. Thanks!

.. the bigger question is: will #Playtron contribute back to the #Linux / #FOSS community that it is built on? Likely given who theyโ€™ve hired, but we donโ€™t know. Valve is making big money, but no question that they contribute back (and obviously Playtron wonโ€™t build their own Proton from scratch).

PSA to everyone to not use brave browser @brave@mastodon.social, the CEO of Brave Software is bigoted (donated to anti-lgbtqia+ organizations trying to ban gay marriage in the past and still has never addressed it or apologized) and was also against the Covid Lockdowns and is anti-vax. Using brave browser contributes to oppression of LGBTQIA+ ppl and contributes to brave software financially through ads and other means.

I recommend anyone still using brave browser to switch to ungoogled-chromium as a non-bigoted degoogled chromium-based browser alternative. @floccus@fosstodon.org is a good browser extension to use on ungoogled-chromium to sync your bookmarks.

For our second spotlight we are shining a light on @gamingonlinux who keeps us informed with #Linux #News and #Gaming.

Liam, we canโ€™t imagine the #Fediverse without you. You add so much to the community and you never let the trolls take you down! We also love that your website adheres to the #FediPUG code of conduct.

Thank you for all your hard work! We hope to be reading your articles for many years to come!

The next beta version of #Signal will be version 7.0.0.
There's a good reason for the round number. This will be the first version where usernames and phone number privacy are available outside of the staging environment.
From this version on, you'll be able to talk to people on Signal without revealing your phone number, and also, you may use Signal without revealing to people who have your number saved that you do.
This is huge.
