In addition to Palantir, LAPD uses "Media Sonar": an online surveillance tool promising:

"full digital snapshot of an individual's online presence including all related personas and connections."

Grabbed lemmur off f-droid. Considering giving lemmy a try. Anyone have opinions on it? I noticed even the main instance is small.

@kravietz @TheFuzzStone what’s the alternative, tutanota? I can’t host my own, and when I signed up a few years back they seemed promising. I was a primary gmail user before then so I guess they’re a stepping stone…

Do you have a WordPress Blog?

Did you know you can connect it to the Fediverse so that people on Mastodon can follow you and comment on your posts?

It works through the WordPress ActivityPub plugin:

(You can also find this by searching for "ActivityPub" in the plugins section of your WordPress blog)

The plugin's developer is on the Fediverse at @pfefferle

@Wetrix eh, up to you. The lights are still on and a few people here. You can always just follow their new accounts from here anyway.

I like it here, so I’m holding onto this one to see what happens. I’ve got accounts on a few instances just to check them out. Different kinds of convos on different instances…

@Wetrix i was wondering where these went. You dropped off for a bit

@TheDoctor @Wetrix same here. It’s a bit more on the tech nerd side but I like it.

I wish my pixel shipped from google like Amazon. Been itching to try out graphene.

This is how Amazon wins.

@kravietz I enjoy your posts - are you planning to move to another instance?

If this place shuts down soon I can be found on fosstodon:

@lnx well it was fun here. I’ll hang around until the lights go dark I guess. I’ve got an account on fosstodon that’ll be my primary now. Same name.
