There's a petition to Save the .org top level domain. Apparently, ICANN could still stop it from being sold.
savedotorg.org
I know, petitions rarely work, but I also know that _sometimes_ they do.
Please consider signing if you _run_ anything there, or if you _use_ or _care about_ anything that's on a .org domain. Also, boosting this to others who follow you, would be very much appreciated.

Der "Erweiterte Datenschutzmodus" ist auch so eine Trollnummer von Google:

"Privacy Enhanced Mode allows you to embed YouTube videos without using cookies that track viewing behavior."

Ok - keine Cookies. Aber dafür eine eindeutige ID im Local Storage 🙄

"Es herrsche das Missverständnis, dass technologischer Fortschritt es ermöglichen werde, ohne deutlichen Richtungswechsel das bisherige Verhalten in Bezug auf Konsum, Mobilität und Heizung weiterzuführen."

Die @BILD@twitter.com titelte vorgestern "Grausam! Kinder in Afrika müssen für E-Autos schuften" und erreichte damit in rekordverdächtigen 8 Worten Heuchelei-Stufe 9.000. Ja, Kinderarbeit ist ziemlicher Mist, sie interessiert diese Typen aber nur, wenn es um E-Autos geht.

Naturkatastrophen, Dürren und soziale Konflikte werden sich massiv verschärfen, wenn wir nicht jetzt handeln. Müssen wir in einer solchen Situation über Demokratie, Recht und Gesetz reden? Unbedingt! Weshalb unsere Rebellion eine demokratische ist.

In Facebooks Trackingtools steckt eine wenig beachtete technisch-juristische Schwachstelle (👏 Paul-Oliver Dehaye). Betroffene können damit universell gegen Websites oder Apps mit Facebook-Tracker vorgehen. Selbst wenn vorher eine Einwilligung eingeholt wurde. rufposten.de/blog/2019/10/20/d

Mastodon.host

What sets mastodon.host appart?

As a general instance, we are not centered on a specific theme, or a specific language. Everyone is welcome as long as they follow the few rules we have.

We always run the latest stable version of Mastodon, providing you a stock experience, with the following modifications:

  • 2048 character limit (not 500).
  • 512 character limits for the account's bio (not 160).
  • full column width (not fixed size).
  • more search results (20 instead of 5 per type of search).
  • Audio upload (not limited to videos only).
  • full text search of statuses (not restricted to searching tags and users).
  • trending tags are displayed on the main UI ( and a more complete view is available here)
  • boosts and replies are shown in the timelines (more complete view for everyone).
  • Your mastodon.host account is also a XMPP account (Federated Instant Messaging, take a look online to find a client and use your mastodon.host username and password to configure it, you can also use our online web client). Woohoo! two services in one!
  • We also have a very good view of the federation (our federated timeline gives you a more broad view of the Mastodon network than a 'normal' instance, there's a lot to read in a lot of languages).
  • We also host a Peertube instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • In the same vein, we host a Funkwhale instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • If you want to be on a more quiet, moderated instance, or use another AP implementation, we host a Pleroma instance for the convenience. This is the same fediverse as with Mastodon, but with a different default UI and way more optimized backend. Try and see which one you prefer !
  • Now if you want a different UI, the stock mastodon one does not please you, you can check Pinafore.
  • We do also host for the convenience a video Conference server ( Jitsi Meet )
  • We have a mastodon relay for other instances to bootstrap their timelines: https://relay.mastodon.host

Although we are a medium+ sized instance, we'd like to keep the feeling that you are at home and safe here.
