Who should you thank for Facebook’s Libra?

• “One of the UK’s leading privacy researchers”
• University College London
• The DECODE project

How to ask for advice on Mastodon:

Need advice on what bike to by? Post that your car won't stat.

Need an Linux Distribution recommendation? Post that you Windows OS just decided to upgrade.

Need to do an informal poll of what people drink in the morning? Post that you like coffee.

(Tongue in cheek. I love you all.)

#HelloWorld! As active members of the open-source community, ProtonMail supports open source projects like Mastodon. Mastodon’s decentralized nature reminds us of the days when the Internet was free and not under the control of a few monopolist giants. Our followers can look forward to toots about service updates, new projects, and news on privacy.

Big props to @omgubuntu and @protonmail for putting Mastodon links on their website templates alongside their centralised social media links (see attachments) :blobcheer:

This is great for normalising the concept of decentralised social media 👍

If you have a Fediverse account, please do mention it on your website! The more people see these icons, the more comfortable they will be finding out more.
