Little headsup, Mastodon developers seem to be testing a language selector in the posting interface (see attached image).

The idea is you set the language you're posting in which will make it easier for other people to filter your post out if they don't speak it.

You can already set your default language in the Preferences/Settings section, but the idea of this new feature is to let you optionally change the setting for each particular message. This is handy if you toot in several languages.

I have no idea if/when this will be rolled out, the developers' instances often get test features like this.

i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

Google has 80+ "free" products... which means that YOU are the product. I wrote a series of articles that will help you see what they know about you (which is WAY too much) and guide you through de-Googling your life. It's never too late for #privacy.

What are some of the funniest, most creative or most impactful types of digital activism you have seen in the last couple of years? Collecting examples to share with young folks who are organising in their housing area, to get them inspired...

Is it just me, or is the wonderfully performant translator deepl.com not usable anymore without authorizing the execution of javascript from cloudflare.com?

Can somebody tell anyone in this EU company that it cannot possibly respect the GDPR while enabling a US company to sit in between them and their users? That letting such US company know all text their users are willing to translate is a deep violation of everyone's privacy?

EU Commission’s latest attempt to backdoor your privacy tries the Trump era William Barr justice department “think of the children” playbook.

No one thinks we shouldn’t do everything in our power to combat child sexual abuse. Some of us just don’t want to destroy the fundamental human right to privacy (and every other human right that’s based on it) in the process.

per si us cal algun argument contra aquesta febre dels creuers que fa massa temps que dura:

«Dues mil tones de residus diaris: l’impacte del creuer més gran del món als ports de Palma, València i Barcelona»

The @EU_Commission gets good interaction on their toots, even though they are merely Twitter crossposts.

Like the highly controversial and insanely bad proposed legislation around #ChatControl. See the @Chartodon chart and this thread:

Now compare to the Musk'O Bird site where they have 1.6 million followers..

And just a handful of responses :birdsite:

Any #wordpress devs on the fedi? Looking for a plugin to restrict content to certain user types...

Any plans for May 18th? The unofficial Fediverse Birthday. Is anyone planning online meetings for your local community, like @titi did for Catalan and Spanish speakers last year? Or some such thing?
