I'm posting this from a blue phone wearing a blue denim jacket on a blue bodysuit with blue jeans and blue shoes and have blue nails and blue eye shadow.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain


I need to start looking for a new job. In a new country too, cos i physically cannot survive here.

Anyone looking for work. I am looking for:

* experienced Ruby-on-Rails developer
* or, experienced developer in the domain of life sciences

In UK, remote, team clustered around London. We have an office, but put notice on it for landlord. Trial management system for preclinical studies by worldwide pharmas.

Gmail will block all third party mail clients starting from June:

That is, unless they pay $4500 minimum for an audit :D

Stop using gmail and enabling their monopolistic practices, if you already haven't.

I hate pants so much.

Dress, skirts, yes yes yes

Jeans, trousers, no no no
