Dear Fediverse,

Soon, some venture capitalist will put $5 million into a startup that offers free fediverse accounts with unlimited storage, etc.

Unless every other instance instantly blocks such a service from Day 1, you can kiss your fediverse goodbye and say hello to a new Gmail. Once network effects kick in, they will make the rules.

It _can_ happen here but you have an opportunity to kill it before it does.

I feel like I should learn more about what , the chat thing, is. I hear you can access over/through it? Is there any guide that explains things for self hosting everything? I downloaded and it seems to like me to use some central server?

You can add your mastodon/fediverse details to your #OpenStreetMap wiki user page! Use the `{{User Mastodon|user|domain.tld}}` user box on your #OSM wiki page

Do you know about WeeklyOSM? Every week a team of volunteers produce a summary of what's going on in the #OpenStreetMap world, and it's available into 8 languages (English, German, French, Japanese, Spanish. Czech, Korean and Swahili)!

Ung?! #JOSM is showing dates in US format?! Whaaaa.....

Today's mapping caretaking task for me is to add `religion` tags to `amenity=place_of_worship` when there already is a `denominatim` tag.

Any recommendations for a reader for ? pref. . I want to read the interface to mailing lists on the go. (so actually reading text, not downloading binaries ๐Ÿ™‚)

I wish rsync had a way to order or prioritise files. I'd like it to transfer some first first.

I have ansible connecting to a machine to start a systemd transient service to run rsync to copy files from other machine using the ssh-agent socket for the ansible connection. ๐Ÿ™‚

@h Free Software is a type of political movement which emerged as a reaction against the treatment of software as being private property. You could say it's an anti-enclosure movement, campaigning via direct action to make software a public resource accessible to all.

FOSS was always political.

Welcome to the @SwissOSM community who have a mapstodon account now

Looks like bookmarklets are unusable in recent versions of . Stupid 3rd party trackers have ruined for the rest of us. grumble grumble

oh wow, d'you remember GreaseMonkey scripts? That was gonna be cool. The whole web 2.0, user hacking web thing. Before social media took off and ate everything. What happened to greasemonkey scripts?

RT The twitter likes should be going to the people tirelessly doing vandalism detection and removal day in and day out on #OpenStreetMap , that keep it so below the radar that over the years this is the first time any such event has even been noticed in the media.

RT @openstreetmap
OpenStreetMap is a freely editable map, which sometimes attracts vandalism. We condemn anti-semitism, and the recent defacement around New York. The community fixed this issue within 2 hours, and the vandal has been blocked from further editing.

Someone (@Luca) is visualizing hashtags used in the #fediverse, and #OpenStreetMap is in the top 10! Go #OSM! There's clearly more #Mastomappers than I thought.

Why yes, it is a good idea to load about 15 onto my eReader at a time when I finish one book.
What? That's not a problem.

Good morning Mastomappers! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป
