No technology can save us from ourselves, but building a more interoperable social media environment could be our do-over on the current lock-in model. It could be awesome, if we don’t screw it up.

Former Twitter workers create their own instance on Mastodon


I've got my green screen setup for OBS Studio. Now I just have to setup PeerTube and get RTMP multiplexing working, then I think I'll be all set.

Slowly working on the home lab, I want to move the mail server to here, but I'd likely need to still have remailers in a datacenter to keep it stable. Not sure it's worth the trouble. Pixelfed and Federated VoIP are on the list next. I want to run something ham radio related, maybe an RMS for winlink. Not sure if we really need another in this area.

It's 12 degrees out and I just got my 1st mosquito bite of the summer
