Thanks but not thanks.
(…) bit of a pity that Mastodon is dominating the AP space and basically just copies Twitter.
And what’s wrong with Mastodon imitating Twitter? In fact, it’s a good thing. Do you know how many designers Twitter has working hard to make it attractive to users? Mastodon can take inspiration from Twitter and avoid so much design work so they can focus on code. Besides, you don’t have to mimic all the features, just take inspiration and eliminate obscure patterns and negative features like stories. This way, newcomers will not feel so confused. If they don’t get inspiration of those famous services, it eventually happens to them like gnusocial and they become inaccessible atrocities for the average user.
In my opinion, I think anyone who would like to start developing open source software should take a look at this site: https://opensourcedesign.net/resources/
It has very interesting resources and could help to promote open source software :')
Your beloved Vivaldi blocks absolutely nothing with its adblocker by default. It’s one of the worst browsers to protect the user’s privacy. I admire Vivaldi for being against cryptocurrencies and for their alliances with products that are private and trustworthy, but your fanaticism disgusts me.
And I find it very hypocritical of you to blame Mozilla for including 1 tracker on their website, when Vivaldi is proprietary software and they include a whitelist for their weak adblocker to satisfy their partners. Also, their UI is written in Node.js, that’s what makes it so slow compared to Brave and Firefox.
These are for me the most interesting users to read about (among others, I mean I would put more, but the list would be too long!)
