Early morning (dawn) is seriously my favorite time of day.

Even though when I step outside it's hot and steamy.... and the mockingbirds are protesting my very presence..

my second favorite thing is bringing my wife coffee in the morning...

The jury got it right in both the #Trump and Hunter #Biden trials.

Today's thought:

"When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross." - (probably not) Lewis Sinclair but still true.

Oh and I can't help but look at the attached image and hear trump saying.. "I moved on her like a b*tch." "grab them by the *****"

Marjorie Taylor Greene compares Trump to Jesus Christ. / Trump casts his criminal conviction as messianic martyrdom.

Journalism and news, as we once knew them, are no more.

With their decline, our communities have lost their voice and the cornerstone of our democracy.

True accountability has waned, misinformation has surged, the corrupt have risen to power, and the connections within our communities have eroded.

While we can't restore what was lost, we can strive to build anew.

Today's semi-unpopular thought:

Creators and maintainers of federated platforms should focus on driving development, adoption, and growth of their ecosystems, rather than managing the largest instances. Let’s empower communities to thrive and decentralize the web! 🚀

Sub-thought: You can't champion decentralization while steering users to your branded instance.

🗳️ Time for your input!

Is it the right moment to launch community #Pixelfed servers for #Cartoonists and #PhotoJournalists? 🤔

We dipped our toes a couple of years ago, but it was still too early, bit do you feel the timing is right now?

Share your thoughts by casting your vote..


Oh!!! please #share and #repost

    @dansup @pixelfed

    Seems that we're thinking about PixelFed instances


    @jeff@newsie.social avatar

    @evan @dansup @pixelfed

    I haven't seen that multi-tenancy (or multi-homing) is currently possible in Pixelfed.

    However it would really make Pixelfed stand out.

    @jeff@newsie.social avatar

    Am I the only one that wishes that @dansup would just make #PixelFed a full blown social platform for text, images and video?

    Just repeatedly impressed with the build and code quality of the platform.

    A small photo dump.

    The Jewish Museum.

    The Memory Void and Shalekhet (fallen leaves)

    More than 10,000 faces with open mouths, cut from heavy round iron plates, cover the floor of the ground floor void.

    The space is brutal, still and largely silent. Visitors are allowed to walk on them - the sound created tangles from single sharp clicks, to a painful chorus of shifting and moving metal.

    The echos briefly linger.

    So we crashed an Arab language group at the old German Parliament. Lucky for us they are giving it first in English and translating to Arabic

    The conversations and questions from this group are fascinating.

    Should the United States require Bytedance to sell its ownership stake in Tiktok, with a ban on the app if they do not comply?

    I've long been a proponent of news orgs being worker cooperatives or E-O C's.

    In a #tech landscape obsessed with the latest & shiniest, here is to my fellow graybeard technologists.

    We dive into the depths of legacy code, armed with wisdom, snark, and a coffee mug that boldly states "Legacy Code Warrior."

    Skill in reviving and navigating ancient systems is not just impressive—it's indispensable.

    Here's to the guardians of digital history, ensuring our digital present runs smoothly, one line of legacy code at a time.

    An experienced technologist with gray hair stands confidently in front of a glowing computer screen displaying complex legacy code, holding a coffee mug labeled 'Legacy Code Warrior'. They wear business casual attire, emphasizing their seasoned expertise in a dimly lit room focused on the task.

    We run Axigen for us and a few hundred others.

    @jeff@newsie.social avatar


    Where do I start!

    It's a robust email and collaboration Solution with calendars, tasks, notes, contacts, etc

    We started using it to migrate clients off 360 and Zimbra

    The clients we move to it love the platform.
