I really want to start drawing more cartoons. Encourage me if you want to see more. They may even increase in quality over time. 😅

I realised that username doesn’t appear in full. Click the account name to see the profile and the full username. It’s ”@dino_comics @beta.birdsite.live” without the space.

Is there someone’s tweets you miss seeing? You can follow any Twitter account via beta.birdsite.live.

For example, to follow Dino Comics, enter ”@dino_comics” in the search engine.

Remember, you can’t reply back to Twitter though.

Starting off coaching a new team tomorrow and am really excited 😊 So much fun getting to know a new group of people and being with them for months as they grow together. One of the most rewarding things I do.

Haha, jag har sett 3 avsnitt nu. Underbar! Det var väldigt vältajmat. Serierna jag följer kommer med nytt avsnitt på fredagar så hade inget att kolla på.

An algorithm is just some person’s will made manifest. So the key question is: “whose will?” Yours? Or some douchebag billionaire’s?

As #WholesomeWednesday comes to a end, I'd like to share a story.

I was working in park and had a co-worker named Eve. Every day she would paint a little smile on a rock and leave it somewhere for visitors to find. One day I asked her why she did it. She told me that she once found a rock with a smile on it. That rock was the highlight of her week. Every time she thought of the rock, she would smile. She said "This silly rock brought me joy at my lowest point and I want to return the favor!"

I've always felt very comfortable teaching online but know others may struggle. Here is a post I wrote with some of my best tips, ideas, tools and warnings for and presenting online.

If you're ever looking for a GDPR-compliant form and survey tool I can not recommend Tally enough. It's built and managed by indie developer couple Marie & Filip in Belgium.

99% of features are available for free. But yes, I pay the very affordable price of €250 per year.

Remember though, GDPR compliance doesn't stop with the tool you choose, it also depends on what you ask for, how you ask and how you manage the data after collecting it.

#Security: we make sure we won’t pass your data to anyone who hasn’t paid us for it

#Privacy: we won’t manipulate you or interfere with your life

#DataProtection: fairness, lawfulness, transparency, minimisation, adequacy, storage limitation, security, accountability

Security without privacy and data protection; is just another vehicle for imposing tyranny

Got a nice quote about #mastodon in this article for politico by @rebeccamkern@twitter.com: "One Mastodon user, Sasha Costanza-Chock, a media and design researcher, touts the benefits of a decentralized platform where "decisions about how we interact with each other aren't made by billionaires." politico.com/newsletters/digit

Hey fedi friends;

It's okay to not think of the fediverse as your new home. It's okay to have multiple social networks you participate in. It's okay to grow your community here over time, and know that it will take time to grow here.

It's very rewarding to be here, if you keep showing up and putting in the effort.

How to use a smartphone safely during protests and such: 

1. You can't.

A lot about smartphones is a black box, including hardware components. They've been found to record audio or send locations even when "turned off" (one reason why they all avoid removable bateries now). Unless it's in a Faraday cage without power, you can't trust these things.

No shame on ppl who need them tho, so, being aware of the risk:

Twitter newcomers.. if you want to share a toot you find in your timeline with your followers, then a boost is the only way to do so. Unlike twitter which want to show everyone what you Like, a like (or favourite) on the #Fediverse is more personal.

Use Likes as acknowledgment, token of appreciation, sign of agreement, or just to store in your favourites list. It is your interpretation and personal expression.

Use Boost to spread stuff around, encourage discussions, share delightful content.
