Pinned toot


I'm a software developer living in a haunted mansion in Chicago. I'm originally from Silicon Valley, a fact that I am both proud and ashamed of.

My pronouns are he/him/his; my website is; my musical taste is embarrassing.

Have you been able to convince people to join the ? If so, how?

I ask because I want everyone to leave birdsite/etc and join a federated social network, and I want effective ways to ask.

Just scanned through the hashtag. More than half of the people I scrolled past self-identified as queer. I like this

I'm unhappy with my current file syncing/backup setup. Can anyone recommend anything? I'd love:

1. A magic folder that syncs real-time (like )
2. End-to-end (or self-hosted)
3. Good mobile clients (that don't require me to have all of my data loaded). I don't think can do this, and it also lacks an iOS client

? Something else?

Could you give me examples of software or ecosystems intended for end-users that is
- developed by a community
- where no member of the community dominates the process
-under a F/OSS license
- is not a component like the linux kernel or a database like postgres, but a geniune application that end-users can conceptualize as "using"
- has measureable real-world use?

Only some linux distributions come to my mind, what am I missing?
