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 evanhahn.com; my musical taste is embarrassing.

Open call to action: Moderation app for fediverse software!
We received a request to #Tusky in the past week, as Mastodon has now opened API for moderation.
As we don't want to spread ourselves too thin we think it'd be better if someone else on here worked on this, but you'd also receive our full support and help where we can.
Let us know if it's something you'd like to work on, and we'll give you a boost!

Have you been able to convince people to join the #Fediverse? 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 #introductions 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 #Dropbox)
2. End-to-end #encryption (or self-hosted)
3. Good mobile clients (that don't require me to have all of my data loaded). I don't think #Syncthing can do this, and it also lacks an iOS client
#Nextcloud? 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?
