As I've revealed in my last Patreon post, I've been working on adding end-to-end encryption APIs into Mastodon as an upgrade to the direct message system.
Any and all technical details available at the moment are here:
An implementation guide for app developers is being worked on.
Web browser designers:
Well CERTAINLY nobody will EVER need to run web applications from the local machine, ha ha, the very thought, such a security risk. Glad we closed that hole!
Desktop application designers:
Friendly reminder: "X as a service" is just a misleading corporate euphemism for "pay forever for not owning it".
"Software as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the software".
"Games as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning games".
"Infrastructure as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the hardware".
And so on.
There is no "cloud", it's just other people's computers

Christmas can be a hard time for some people 🎄
Will you take 1 second to Retweet and maybe save a life?
Reminder: the "twelve days of Christmas" begin with Christmas and end with Epiphany (January 6), also celebrated as Little Christmas, honoring the day the Magi arrived with their gifts.
So if you're desperately working to finish handmade gifts remember that it is extremely valid/traditional to exchange gifts then.
And because of the 13-day difference between the Julian calendar and the Gregorian, Epiphany is not celebrated by most Eastern churches until secular January 19.
