Here is a long thread on keeping moss as a houseplant that I pulled off my twitter, wrapped up as a blog post - so now you can read about practical moss gardening without having to visit that website :>
Some were asking whether there is a Fediverse alternative to Facebook Events/Groups.
There is one on the way!
It's called Mobilizon, and it had a successful crowdfunding to cover development costs. The beta version is due out in October.
It will be free, open and federate with ActivityPub.
You can follow it on here:
The website is here:
You can follow and help development here:
Just in time for the next election cycle.
Input a Reddit username and discover potential bots, trolls, spammers, and other social media deviants.
As you may have noticed from recent boosts, @pixelfed now has "remote follows".
In case you're wondering what it is, #Pixelfed is a free open alternative to Instagram, designed for privacy-friendly photo sharing.
You can now follow Mastodon accounts from Pixelfed, and Pixelfed accounts from Mastodon.
Remote follows mean wherever you sign up, you can follow people from other servers 👍

new gab instance popped up, time to shill for my project!
this script automagically pulls new gab instances as they pop up on fediverse.network (similar to how @gabwatch does) and instance blocks them for you!
if you're an admin and have access to the server your mastodon instance is running on, you can run it there to automatically block all gab sites for your entire instance!
if you're a user and dont mind getting your hands dirty with using ruby and installing some dependencies, it'll block all known gab instances for you at the user level!
i tried to make the readme very approachable and easy to understand, but if you have any questions feel free to @ me here.
thanks for reading, and stay safe friends ❤️❤️
It doesn't require an account, does everything with email and link-capability security, and autodeletes events 2 days after they're over, and it looks really beautiful.
No need to use Facebook for this anymore!
Can we please stop using this proprietary US based service for libre software projects now?
