Manyverse is an Android app for the Scuttlebutt social network.

Scuttlebutt is very unusual: it has no servers. All the data people share is stored on their own devices, and on the devices of people they share it with.

It's also unusual because it can work off-the-grid, via bluetooth or local wifi.

Manyverse is available from @fdroidorg and Google Play, and there's an iOS version on the way:

manyver.se

You can follow Manyverse at:

the real problem with discord that makes them truly evil is that they sell their solution as being something that provides self-determination.

when you move your community to discord, you start a what they call a "discord server."

to be clear, there is not really any such thing as a "discord server," this is just marketing terminology for group functionality.

they call it a discord "server" on purpose: they want to communicate the idea that you have full autonomy on your own "discord server," when in reality you are still at the mercy of discord as a service provider. this is truly evil, this goes beyond a lack of transparency to actively lying to potential users. not even Slack does this.

we must build real alternatives to these predatory services.

Also just wanted to shill a bit for one of my favorite podcasts, the SwitchCast. Great hosts KC and JV make learning about new games and current ones for the Switch a fun experience! Highly recommended listen and their community is amazing!

Looks good. Never played the original, but have played the 's version of . I was always more into Japanese shoot 'em ups from companies like or the Project series, but I'm willing to give this one a try! I've also played Mega Turrican on the and liked it, even tho people say it's not that good, I think...

So yeah, also been trying out 6.5 on my desktop. It runs just fine. I wrote it a review of it in gopherspace. But it basically boils down to that it's a great OS and I can't wait to see future iterations. It fulfills everything I need and want in an OS without all the cruft and complexity of other systems.

Been playing a lot of retro games recently. From Gran Turismo 2 to Final Fantasy Legend 2. That's been a lot of fun! Trying to play games I never really gave a chance to.

Remember that technology is a tool. Use it to help yourself.

Purism will allow bigoted content on their servers 

@pbandkate Makes sense, when you think about it. Nazis want/need to end free speech. Their strategy seems to be convincing the left that "free speech is for Nazis."

Hey guys, im seeing a lot of dissatisfaction with Purism and the Librem phone in my timeline.

Don't let that turn you off the whole concept of a GNU/Linux phone. The community still has projects like the Pinephone in the pipeline. pine64.org/pinephone/

To everyone looking at Microsoft releasing "open source", allow me to remind you of FUD cousin: EEE.

Embrace
Extend
Extinguish

Don't be fooled by MS. It is not your "friend", nor a friend of open source. It is a giant faceless corporation only interested in PROFITS, not in privacy, software freedom or consumer choice.

And it has DECADES of experience peddling FUD and EEE. Its history is a long bloody trail of aggressive attacks against competitors.

Linux is MS competition TODAY. That is all.

The massive effort on part of smartphone makers to ditch the headphone jack is one of those moments when the curtain gets pushed aside and it becomes clear that consumer electronics aren't about giving people what they want but what corporations would rather they want.
