Introduction Post: I'm a 57 year old scouser, lived in and around London for over 30 years. A photographer, married with two grown up (ish) boys. I'm pro EU, vehemently anti Tory, really looking for a kinder more inclusive social media experience so will try to keep my political frustration under control and focus on the beautiful world we have around us with my photography

Elite tech billionaires, who went down the rabbit hole of right-wing paranoia and see anything that would allow society at large to have a say in how their tech-supremacist elite agenda shapes society as 'censorship', are a threat to democracy.

I'm hosting a webinar about trust and safety on the fediverse this Thursday, Dec 8th at 12pm Eastern. It's an introduction to the state of content moderation and community safety here.

I hope it will be useful to people at civil society organizations who have perhaps heard about Mastodon and the fediverse and would like to know more about where there are gaps in funding and services, and places where orgs could potentially help augment what's already happening.

IMO the WFH debate is boiling down to two things. Money, and power.

Money because some rich folks are heavily invested in office real estate, whether owned or in long term rental agreements. If people work from home that investment crashes.

Power because WFH shifts the decision making away from “management” to those who can collaborate effectively and openly. It puts more control in the hands of the proletariat about how to get things done. Micromanagement actively breaks WFH.

Help me convince my wife to try #linux ! She is a full time student who writes a lot of college format (MLA and such) papers, so the office suite is critical. She needs the Microsoft fonts, which is no problem, and has shown interest in #gnome before (said she likes the minimalist look) and she doesn't want Windows 11 so the opportunity is approaching

My image of the day is *Innervation*, an in-camera #doubleexposure on @ILFORDPhoto FP4+ #film. I love how the branches radiate from Lara's neck. They look like nerves spreading around the body. #believeinfilm #experimentalphotography

For those that joined #Mastodon and grabbed the first server they could find, but would prefer to #migrate to a different one, I created a short guide on how to do this quickly and easily.
It also allows you to easily move any followers across to your new profile and leaves a redirection on your old profile for those that find it.😁👍

And be sure to check out the threaded replies for more tips. I will continue to add more. 👍🏼

Whenever I need to cheer up a bit I look at this photo of Margaret Thatcher's gravestone, and the multitude of urine stains on it. 😂

Feeling tricked by #BlackFriday offers?

That's why we refuse to join the Black Friday hype.

Instead we have fair prices all year round:

Hi I run a worldwide collective of musicians making their art on their rules and making a living for them with a network of computers in all our houses.

I am happy answering questions or talking about the music streaming economy, #musicdistribution #royalties, #collabs #publishing #spotify #t1diabetes

I make a #podcast #modernartisrubbish about visual arts.

#vocals #guitars #keys into #blues #soul #dub #hiphop #rock or whatever is playing.

I've been documenting the Scottish independence movement for yrs now, always concentrating on individuals rather than the collective. It's heartbreaking these folks are being denied their democratic right by a supreme court in another country.
We will re-group, re-organise and find another way.
To those south of the border that want to live an an open, inclusive, left-leaning country?
Come join us 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🤝🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

Let's try this. I want to see how "far" this post will reach. Where is your #Mastodon instance located and how many users are currently on it?

I'm on one user based Mastodon instance that is located in Helsinki, Finland :finland_heart:

How about you? :ablobcatwave: Boosts appreciated.
