IMO, to a certain extent, this is a question of what our goals are.

Is our goal to have a federated network which _everyone_ can join with their instance, then we should allow Facebook et al. join us, and we should work on ways to make sure that the joining of Facebook won't cause harm to people on other instances.

If our goal is to have an isolated safe space away from mainstream socnets, then whitelisting would be a good approach, but it wouldn't be "Fediverse" anymore.

I've already migrated my Amazon account out of Gmail. Think it's time to move the iTunes account as well.

What definition of Linux includes servers but doesn't include Android and Chome OS?

I think the year of the Linux desktop has long since past.

Step 1: Install Meteor in sdf.org using creepy shell script shown here meteor.com/install

Step 2: Run ~/.meteor/meteor

Step 3: `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by ~/.meteor/packages/meteor-tool/.1.5.2.sr068l.entaq++os.linux.x86_64+web.browser+web.cordova/mt-os.linux.x86_64/dev_bundle/bin/node)

Why Does Meteor (Cordova) bundle its own 1/2 broken node.js?
