Still, I wanted to have a separate Mastodon account but not on the official instance (where I was earlier) because it's a after all.

One thing that would cause me to become more active on Mastodon is cross-posting, because I'd find it hard to decide whether a post goes to Mastodon or to Twitter. I'm just not happy with the existing solutions; I have some ideas on building something myself but haven't got the time to follow through.

Imagine you are a vegan activist.
Would you want 5 people to go 100% vegan or 500 who are at least 20% vegan?
On top of this, imagine trashing the 495 who are not 100% vegan but are trying.
How do you think they feel about you and your cause?
More importantly which path saves more animals?

For people who use multiple social networks, for example Mastodon and Twitter: do you crosspost everything? If so, how? If not, how do you decide where to post?

More broadly: do you think of your social media profiles as different carriers of the same message or different aspects of your personality?

A few notes after reading @lukas posting on personal CRM: Personal CRM as a Not-LinkedIn, the CRM notes I keep are centered on remembering context.

11/ So #Signal gives people: dead-simple setup, store-and-forward delivery, encrypted everything, encrypted voice/video calls, ability to send photos/video encrypted. If you are going to tell someone "it's so EASY to get your texts away from Facebook and AT&T", THIS IS THE THING you've got to point them to. It may not be in 2 years, but for now, it is. Do not let the perfect be the enemy of the good. It advances the status quo without harming usability, which nothing else does yet.

More contacts than you might think already use Threema. 👥 Here are some tips on how to get the rest on board: threema.ch/bp/more-contacts

I think crossposting (e.g., between Mastodon and Twitter) is a great idea to distribute your content and stay active in multiple networks, but crossposting should always exclude formats that don't translate well or lose context, such as retweets/retoots, @-mentions and replies. Is there a crossposting tool that automatically removes these?

Just opened the app store on my phone and saw "Simple & Privacy-Friendly Flashlight App" listed.

Crazy that it is necessary. Every flashlight app should just be a flashlight app and not a way to collect and share user data 🙄

What a world we live in 😂

Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:

Whether against white people exists or not: if that is what you want to talk about in light of the killing, it shows you're not interested in talking about other people's (e.g., PoC) issues. And that is a part of structural racism.

There are various formats to describe data models. One of my favorite approaches is Linked Data based on RDF. That is why I based CloudObjects on this technology. My idea was to use RDF to describe APIs and the configuration of various application components. I quickly realized that a s... lukasrosenstock.net

I'm tired of folks who argue like we just have the binary choice between exactly the we have right now or the failed soviet-style .

In the same manner, I'm also tired of people whose arguments always boil down to "X is wrong/bad/unfair, hence capitalism sucks".

One thing I miss in the social media landscape is a rate-limited network, only allowing enough posts so it takes, say, one hour per week to catch up with 500 followed accounts.

That way I could actually stay up to date with all of my friends I made around the world, the quiet and the active ones.
