The map of the Internet¹ in 1969 makes for an evocative constellation. It's a wonderful demonstration that decentralization plus interoperability can create a world changing system starting with just four nodes².

¹: ARPANET, although close enough for gov't work
²: As well as a ton of research and investment

Mastodon's Founder Says Trump's New Social Network Is Just Mastodon

'Truth Social', which will launch officially later in the year, is seemingly using Mastodon's codebase without credit.

Former President Donald Trump’s new social network ’Truth Social’ is seemingly a thinly disguised fork of popular social network codebase Mastodon.

Its terms also say that “all source code” of Truth Social is proprietary. That might run afoul of Mastodon’s own license.

“The main thing is that Mastodon is free software, released under the AGPLv3 license, so anyone can use it—provided they comply with the license. The main part of the license is making the source code and any modifications to it available to the public,” Rochko told Motherboard. With Truth Social saying that its code is proprietary “that would be a problem, as that would indicate a license violation,” Rochko added.

I can’t have alcohol for the foreseeable future due to some meds the doctor has me on. If you ever find yourself needing to quit drinking, I suggest simply finding some other health issue to take its place. It worked for me.

I'd like to remind you all that while Firefox may not be great, Chrome is a lot worse and telling people not to use Firefox is just going to push most of them back to Chrome. Demanding that people go "all the way" and rejecting incremental steps is pretty high on the list of reasons why free/libre/open/non-megacorp software isn't more popular.
