Damn it EU! Show more
Sad to say that Article 11 & 13 (i.e. the link tax and automated copyright filtering) got past the first voting hurdle.
Thankfully it's not over yet. It'll be going to a European Parliament vote of 751 MEPs. So while these bad ideas weren't strangled at birth they can still be voted down.

"Should you move from GitHub to sr.ht" – https://drewdevault.com//2018/06/05/Should-you-move-to-sr.ht.html #Git
hot take: you're not actually selfhosting if you use a cloud provider. you have to own the hardware or it doesn't count.
Github is now a fully owned, proprietary tool of Microsoft.
It's time to decide.
Do we as a community allow our future to depend upon commercial interests of a company that to this day spreads FUD and minimizes our impact when it suits their plans?
Or do we step up, do what we do best and take our code to somewhere created by the us for us and the good of the community?
This isn't about hating Microsoft. It's about loving our own sovereignty and controlling our *own* future.
@Gargron Thank you for making Mastodon! Thanks to you I have been given the chance to meet and talk to a lot of friendly people. I have even made new friends because of Mastodon.
This is the first time I feel a social media is truly social. Thank you (and thank you all the contributors to this project) for all your hard work! :)
