@dansup good call!
Though the ethical alternatives are competing for time and attention with the non-ethical ones.
Deceptive patterns then give the non-ethical alternatives the "higher ground", forcing the ethical alternatives to fight an uphill battle.
One way to circumvent that, is to not fight the fight. To position your ethical alt. as something that can be used besides, or on-top-of the non-ethical alt. Instead of being antagonistic to this alt. In language and features.
Just my $0.02.
Does anyone have any good resources for running your own Mastodon Instance that I could point people to? I want to encourage people to start their own instances and make more diverse communities, but it's really daunting without some kind of guide/introduction to the whole MastoAdmin thing.
I know about https://runyourown.social/, are there any others out there? ^^
reminded today of the reboot of #indymedia which in light of todays media landscape and corporate narrative, we need more than ever!
The reboot of the indymedia project
We are a wide affinity group working to reboot the global indymedia network using modern federated protocols such as #activitypub.
The new #nextcloud dashboard is really neat, liking the ability to plug-in notifications from different apps and even external accounts (twitter, mastodon)
