Imagine a federated platform like #PeerTube that replace #iTunes for distributing podcasts. It would have all the benefits of pirate radio (or #HackerPublicRadio); diverse voices, a plurality of sources, decentralized production and consumption, plus all the benefits of iTunes; any podcaster can potentially heard by anyone in a global audience, and without the downsides of a platform controlled by a single gatekeeper like Apple corporation.
“Before Twitter, before algorithmic timelines filtered our reality for us, before surveillance capitalism, there was RSS: Really Simple Syndication … As we move away from the centralised web to the peer web, it’s time to rediscover, re-embrace, and reclaim RSS.”

Pepper&Carrot is the amazing comic strip of Davod Revoy, an unbelievably gifted and kind artist who releases everything he does with P&C under the CC-BY license. He is open to collaboration and contributions from the community and together they contribute storylines, translations, fan art, derivations, and much more. He's built an amazing community around a clever story and I adore everything about it
On the other hand you don't really explain what you 'do' on mastodon. You call it a 'micro-blogging service'. I don't think everybody does understand what this means. Instead you should say that users can publish text or media on mastodon and other users can like it, boost it to raise visibility or comment it.
Hope my thoughts are anyhow helpfull. I can give you a bit more details later if you like.
I just had a look at join mastodon.org and think I've some ideas how the page could become more helpfull for non-tech people.
The site is full of technical vocabulary and sometimes there are different words for the same thing. Eg. You use the words 'community', 'server' and 'instance' but mean the same. Furthermore you put the focus on self-hosting a lot. Thats nothing a non-tech users are interested in. Maybe things like this will even scare such a person away.
It seems like SuperTux is in need for new contributors. Would somebody here in fediverse mind to help them out?
On a old USB pendrive I found a few of my attempts to create music from a few years ago. I listened to it. It sounds like some kind of experimental ambient music but one or two songs aren't that bad (at least I thinke so). I ask me if I should release this to public domain somehow.
Lead developer of PCLinuxOS is in declining health due to cancer.
Cancer sadly happens, it's horrible, being able to say your good byes due to it's slow acting is probably the only upside of the illness.
Tomorrow will be a very busy day again, so I don't think that I'll have much time for developing RogueBox Adventures. Lets hope the rest of this week will be better.
