I asked a few friends: what would you suggest to a never-seen-any-anime-guy?

They answered:

🔹Steins; Gate
🔹Your Name
🔹Fate/Stay Night

Were they right?

Hey, help:

what do you think about as chat app for a newsroom and in general as group chat for small teams?

I'm doing emergency discount commissions because my car broke down and I had to borrow money just to get it repaired ($200). I'm doing quick ink drawings for *$15USD*

I draw #anthros, humans, pets, animals, #Pokemon, #tabletop and #mmo characters, and many other things.

Shoot me a message here or email me at rhyspass@gmail.com

Drawing will be done ink with minor color detailing and scanned in and touched up.

Mozilla just put out an Internet Health Report with a whole section on decentralisation, as well as an article on centralised social media. The fediverse does not exist in it internethealthreport.org/2018/

"It’s time to give Firefox a fresh chance" by Vlad Savov theverge.com/2018/4/15/1723954

Couldn't agree with this sentiment more. The web thrives on browser diversity.

Open Source voice assistant #Mycroft (yes an actual open source alternative of Amazon Alexa and Google Home) has not only almost hit 800% of its Indiegogo funding in Feb, but has recently switched to #Mozilla's #DeepSpeech project.

Deep Speech is just one of over a hundred projects taking part in #MozSprint May 10-11. They're especially seeking voices of NON ENGLISH speakers.

More new contributors added to these open projects = more real world innovative alternatives.


federated social networks are great!

And there are many - coming with different pros and cons.

Renata Avila tells about an experiment during the Argentinian elections. Six women, same age, data, interests were monitored on and they were shown different posts, but the majority of those was hidden. 🇦🇷

If all Argentinians were like that girls they would have never known about stories of femminicide and rape.

🔹Facebook is seen like a public space but it hides more than what it shows.
