I saw a few people saying they wish they could get away from Google drive&docs but didn't feel they were up to the task of self-hosting their own Nextcloud and doesn't want to pay to run an entire instance just for them.

Message me and I can give you an account on my server (hosted in the US).

I have been hosting a Nextcloud instance for a few years for just my family, my friends, and I have more than enough headroom for a few more people. It will literally cost me nothing more to allow it.

I've just seen so many people say they wish they could switch to something not corporately owned, but that they don't have the technical knowledge or resources to do it themselves and I figure I might be able to help, even if it's just for a few people. I'm going to be running the server for myself and my family anyways, so it really does cost me nothing meaningfully extra to let other people use it.

I'll also play IT support if you need help with that too.

The server is just a home-server hosted in the corner of my living room, but I've never had any problems with it and the performance has been great. As for how much space you'll get? IDK, like 100 GB or something, we'll figure something out if you need more than that. For security assurances is all I can say is that all of my personal information is stored on the same Nextcloud that you'll be using.

You know those algorithms we don't like in our social media?

They're in streaming video services, too. It's nice to get away from them, IMO.

I have just seen a tweet saying of mastodon "The culture of the current user base is incredibly self-important and big serious. It’s much closer to linkedIn than twitter"

and like, lol, lmao.

First post on Mastodon - idk how this works but I made a tiny silver / turquoise box that I'm pretty proud of.

* ads are waste of energy

* companies factor ad spendings into their prices, we literally pay for this shit

* public ads are ugly and distracting, and they consume public space which otherwise can be dedicated to art or communication

* ads fund bullshit, they're literally socialism for capitalists

* ads misinform consumers and propagate consumerism

* ads fund bigots

* ads are ugly annoying and unnecessary, and serve no purpose that is good for society

Out of touch middle class people 

Student comes in to do her FAFSA. Her mom made $100,000 in 2020. Student not eligible for full Pell, but luckily she's got two younger siblings, so she's getting partial Pell.

Student seems pretty resigned to it, but mom is furious. "This is a joke! I'm living paycheck to paycheck!"

Ma'am, nowhere in Kentucky is $25,000 per person per year living "paycheck to paycheck"

neural nets do not 'create' art, they merely remix pieces of art from their overcomplicated probabilistic database. it's a form of collage, only with extra layers placed between to obscure the fact that someone had to make the original images
