Hello my lovely #MastoArt-ists!
I thought you should all know, CETI is posting an open call to all artists, hackers, technologists, designers, and performers to submit to their Gallery of the Future Exhibitions. Check it out!
More info here: https://ceti.institute/gallery-of-the-future/index.html
Call for submissions: https://drive.google.com/file/d/15SQms9i_29oGGUJ32-udu2dCjdmTTkNk/view
I made a thing! 🎉
It's a browser extension that recommends "better" alternative products and services via in-page popups, based on community-curated lists. Available for all Chromium and Firefox-based browsers.
We live in times where the distributions costs are hampering the adoption of higher-quality (which could mean security, privacy, ethics, local etc) products. I am hoping that this extension can eventually be managed by orgs like IFF, EFF or FSF.
Wow, this is some amazing (saving the) future level shit!
@Fairphone has released a new phone model. But you don't have to toss your old phone if you want it, you can just buy the upgraded camera modules to your Fairphone 3, and you're all set!
Check it on https://www.fairphone.com/it/2020/08/27/introducing-fairphone-3-plus/ (great video halfway down)
In the future all phone manufacturers should make standard based modules so you can mix and match from different vendors. I mean, we can for desktop PCs, why not phones?
If you paint traditionally with little brushes I highly recommend making some grips for them. A bit of plastic clay or Sugru to save the hand cramps. #creativetoots
My friend James (@cerealgeek on birdsite and author of the definitive He-Man/She-Ra cartoon guide: https://www.darkhorse.com/Books/28-395/He-Man-and-She-Ra-A-Complete-Guide-to-the-Classic-Animated-Adventures-HC ) and I have been working on an unofficial, old-school He-Man fan-comic, called Masters Of The Universe '85. James has been putting out the pages on birdsite and FB, which is not an ideal distribution strategy for me since I use neither, so I'm gonna repost 'em here for fediverse #MOTU fans. Here are the cover and first page. Enjoy!

What alternative instance of invidio.us do you folks recommend as it's going down pretty soon. 🤔 🤠 #invidious
So what does the freedom loving, presumably Apple hating, fediverse think of this Epic vs Apple fight?
This video makes valid points; namely that both companies are terrible billionaires with the same practices, and you shouldn't fight for them https://youtu.be/v96QyJczIi
But it misses 2 important points IMHO:
1. The 1984 reference is a clever play on Apples famous ad. Though still tone deaf.
2. If Epic wins, that might mean an end to the 30% Apple tax for a ton of non-billionaire devs. Important!
here is a short video about it by @ChrisWere
Just a quick appeal:
@peertube , the Fediverse's video sharing platform, is having a fundraising drive to get PeerTube v3 done, which features lots of major improvements including video livestreaming.
You can find out more and donate to the crowdfunding on the roadmap page:
Sad that invido.us is going down. Now I have to re-add my entire youtube RSS feed on another instance. But I do understand and empathize with why they are taking the instance down.
And this not being the end of the world is what makes opensource and decentralization great! 😁
A prioritization would be to find an instance that is easier to spell than invidious though 😅
