What's the one thing every web user can do to fight #SurveillanceCapitalism ?

Replace the Google Chrome browser

I've started a new website to send a message to Google that we prefer the internet without them



@Gargron @JPEG @arcatech I think that’s the best motivation for admins if the ecosystem around seizes to cooperate with obsolete versions. Building workarounds around these versions is an infinite battle.

@Gargron @JPEG @arcatech Would it be easier for a client check the instance’s version, and if it doesn’t meet the minimum just don’t support it (and inform the user accordingly).

Listening for the third time to the amazing speech of @aral at the EU Parliament, this time looking at a better video which contains also his slides:


At minute 12:20 he rocks and says:

"You are acting as an unpaid Research and Development department for silicon valley. Because if a startup here succeeds, it gets bought by Google or Facebook. If it fails, we pick up the bill."


@markosaric I’d add to the list to things you are already paying for like subscriptions, which might be also nicely discounted during Black Friday. (Reduced my mobile subscription bill this BF.)

@JPEG I’ve noticed few times when the app cold launches that I get just blank timeline. Pull to refresh loads timeline from the top (losing timeline position ).

@JPEG extremely happy to see someone finally implement this. However between iPad and iPhone versions of Mast I haven’t yet been able to get the timeline position sync kick in.

The latest beta update to my new Mastodon app is here and full of great additions. It now has timeline position syncing so it retains your position in the app with the web version! ✨


@dansup @r0bbie @pixelfed Could you please list somewhere currently available Pixelfed apps for each platform (Android / iOS). I haven’t yet found any app for iOS which made me think that there are no existing apps, but sounds like I’m wrong.

The rumours are true, we are working on a mobile app.

- Snap, Caption, Post

- No timelines, only for posting

- Only works with Pixelfed

- Android and iOS versions

- Will continue to support 3rd party APIs

Beta version due out next year! #pixelfed

‪A new beta of my Mastodon app is now available to test, and it's packed full of features. Due to some reshuffling, this beta has a new TestFlight build so you'll need to sign up again (ignore the app name).‬


‪Let me know what you think! 🥳⚡️‬
