"In the EU, like in the US, two competing views of the internet and its possible futures are at stake. Cory Doctorow, Tim Berners-Lee, Jimmy Wales, Vint Cerf, and others might still believe in an open web of smaller competing platforms that keep information flowing freely, but legislators everywhere seem to have accepted the status quo of a digital landscape that’s dominated by a handful of giants with self-perpetuating silos."

so what is Pleroma about anyway?

in a nutshell, it's about autonomy. it's about social media autonomy for every person on the planet. all 7.6 billion of us. nobody else telling us to do, what to say, and nobody else forcing us to see things we don't want to see.

this means Pleroma is being built for an entirely new scale of fediverse: one with billions of nodes. it's also why Pleroma supports alternative transports such as TOR and I2P out of the box.

it also is a major differentiator between Pleroma and Mastodon. in the Mastodon model, there's maybe a few million islands which host a few thousand people each. to contrast, in our model, everyone who wants to host their own instance does so. that means everyone can choose to have total social media freedom.

but it's not just social media, we also intend to use the same underlying tech to enable real-time communications with the same capabilities as the social media side of things.

and it's universal: different frontends for different preferences. like Mastodon but don't have the resources to run it? use Pleroma with Mastodon frontend and apps. like GNU social? Pleroma's default frontend was modelled after it. like diaspora* but want to talk to your fediverse friends? use Feather. like the alternative Mastodon frontends like Pinafore and Brutaldon? they work too.

hate spam and harrassment? we have a mostly as yet untapped framework called MRF which can be leveraged to automate moderation of an instance.

want to modify it? drop by #pleroma on freenode and we help with that too.

The plot thickens...
It seems Google may have taken down Blender's videos on YouTube because they wouldn't display ads for them.

In order for Linux to go mainstream, we need to get into schools.

I also think Linux is the perfect match for schools. Configurable, able to run cheap hardware no problem, has a web browser, wonderful to program on, etc.

There are two spots where #Google, #Amazon, #Facebook, #Apple, #Microsoft (and others) are most vulnerable. You have to attack them where it hurts them the most.

1) Is their public image. Make them look as shitty as possible, they deserve it. Ideally, make them *deny* things that make them look good. This is the high art of pissing someone off. Claim publicly that Google is stopping AI research or whatever. You will win.

2) Don't use their services. Seriously. Stop. Stop. STOP. Delete. Forget.
