This is a pretty compelling reason. Esp. if you are writing open source code.

Dear everyone who is considering making a video of yourself talking rather than just writing the *exact same words* into a text file, a blog post or a PDF:

Unless you're specifically targeting people who literally cannot read...

Please don't.

Another interesting, clearly wrong behaviour: the “m.” prefix is stripped along with “www.” There’s a weaker consensus that “m.example.com” is the same thing as “example.com”, and obtaining that subdomain on a given site is much easier.

For example, m.tumblr.com is a user’s blog. It’s NOT the mobile version of tumblr.com. But Chrome displays “m.tumblr.com” as “tumblr.com”, which could allow that blog’s owner to impersonate the main site.

Did you know that communitywiki.org/trunk exists?

It's a new project where you can find people in the Fediverse and follow them by topic.

Also, you can request to be included. It's a really cool idea.

Man y'all ever think about how incredibly stupid it is that the internet is almost entirely financed by advertising. Like, imagine if busses were only paid for using the revenue from bus ads. And if not enough people looked at the ads for Target or a legal firm specializing in slip-and-falls, then their bus route stopped existing. How stupid would that be. That's basically what we're doing right now, but with online.

Remember what Stallman did ~30 years ago when proprietary software dominated, he didn't recommended abstinence he came up with a positive answer aka Free Software. We need to do the same with today's evolving technology (cloud, saas, IoT, whatever). Ignoring it will change nothing we have to get engaged and shape it in a freedom and privacy respecting way.
