People of USA, as long as you refuse to confront the monster that is the NRA, you will continue to kill your own children, on your own soil. On the issue of the gun lobby, your country is totally backward. A country that allows its own children to be killed is a deeply sick country.

Les États-Unis sont tellement arriérés sur la question des armes à feu. Même des tueries de masse impliquant des enfants ne les font pas changer en tant que société. Terrible, absolument terrible.

Les Russes tentent d'imaginer des récits de guerre nucléaire. Fausse propagande et oubli que leur pays serait rayé de la carte s'ils lançaient une attaque par ICBM.

Since the megalomaniac Musk bought twitter for an amount that could save millions of lives from starvation, the social media attracts the conservative right in the US and scares away the progressive left. So, no, twitter is not going to disappear, but it is going to become much more right wing and reactionary.

For new people wondering why Mastodon is on thousands of servers instead of one:

-It helps protect us all against Elon Musk scenarios. It's very difficult for anyone to buy a network made of thousands of independently owned servers. (It's the same reason why no one owns the world's email network, because there are so many independent providers out there.)

-If your server misbehaves (or sells out to a malevolent billionaire), you can move your account to a different server, or even to a brand new server. Decentralisation means you're never trapped on a site you hate.

-Mastodon is an open platform where anyone can start their own server, and they don't need tech knowledge if they use a service like masto.host or federation.spacebear.ee

...and there are lots more good reasons too, to do with servers using alternative Fediverse software etc, but I'll save that for a future post 😁

Always a bliss to watch Martijn Doolaard videos of the renovation of his two old italian barns in the Alps.
This guy has amazing skills and the video editing is stunning!
