This made me spill coffee on my keyboard :)
„There's a town in Poland where everyone pretends to be American on the 4th of July 🇺🇸
Activities include: drinking beer, shooting guns, BBQing and being beaten by the police.“
Fedi things I’ve noticed since I’ve joined:
1. There’s a lot of unique people here that are utterly different than me. NB, on gender journeys, furries, a kaleidoscope of sexual orientations, and many of them prefer Linux.
2. They all are having more fun, more real candid conversations, and bonding digitally than anything I observed in my decade+ on birdsite.
3. They seem to be fulfilling the original promise of the internet here in these verdant e-valleys while so much of the rest of discourse and networking is scorched earth on its way to ash.
4. I like it here.
One thing I miss from The Bird Site compared to Mastodon is the "Translate tweet" button. It was surprisingly great and let me talk to a lot of people who speak different languages. My fedi timeline is full of posts in other languages and I'm constantly looking for the translate button :(
Nvidia is doing open source?! Berlimy!
In my youth, the Cold War was normal. I experienced the regular ReForGer NATO exercises. (ReForGEr = Return Forces to Germany). The nuclear attack alerts. So I know the signals. The fear. And let me tell you younger ones, we can deal with it. Like we did in the 1960s-80s. Be informed but not afraid. Here to help, if you need assurance. DMs open.
Hi. This is an #introduction. I'm Jack. I'm the science editor at CNET.com, a good website on the internet. I write science stories for a living. I like to call out bullshit science and science reporting.
I'm ready to jump ship from The Bad Bird Site.

#NFT sales have declined 92% since their peak last year
The Earth is healing.
Neat idea! Hopefully help people find product that are not just "cool" but can last and increase sustainability.
I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.
Product manager and car nerd. Big fan of Linux and doing self hosted. Living in my own Mastodon instance. Love meeting people of different backgrounds.
