broke: a programming culture of everyone teaching themselves how to do everything and competing in a race to the bottom, creating fragmented and broken development processes

woke: a trade union that trains new people, sets industry wide labor and compensation standards, and builds standardized shared development tools and processes

Today I am releasing the NPL,
The Non-Violent Public License.

Please take a look if you have been involved with recent discussions about the ethics of free-software's software's use in practice. Think of it as an AGPL but with ethical restrictions on usage (so violating "freedom" 0 but whatever).

Despite being free software, Mastodon as a project takes a hardline stance against nazis

The covenant has been added approx. one month ago so that for the first time in Mastodon's history, our project could make "no nazis" a part of our branding.

Why are there so many people 'for' hate speech?...

Capitalism actively dismantles and works against technological progress for the social good (basically all real progress), do not be fooled by the simulated and controlled consumer "innovation" we are presented with. The only technologies we are allowed are the ones which reinforce declining profit margins and the social status-quo.

it'll never stop being funny to me that my grandfather got blackballed by mccarthy et al for suspicions of being a gay communist and here i am, a gay communist, pissing on mccarthy's grave

Gab will join the Fediverse next month, and we at @forktogether want to be prepared.
ActivityPub is known to be leaky, so we'd like to take further measures than just suspending Gab's known domains by default.

If you know how exactly Mastodon's ActivityPub implementation leaks information, then we'd highly appreciate your input on this issue:
