is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

Google's buying FitBit...and slurping in all the data FitBit users provided. We asked FitBit users what they thought, and we got an EARFUL

For supporters of systems (like #Mastodon) that do not infringe on user #privacy with algorithms used to generate ad-revenue:

What do you do to sway your friends, family and clients to the #Fediverse?

Do your #websites, #blog posts, bylines and support links point here?

Would love to hear your methods for helping others learn what you already know!

The tear down frenzy is a complicated issue. The RT below is the first to resonate with me, however I also think most people memorialized by a statue are glorified for many dimensions of significance. Hard decisions

“I think most would agree that Satan is an important part of Christian history, but if you put up a bunch of statues of him in your , people might start to make assumptions about who you worship and what ideals you glorify”

Looking for some education on . I have been following 3-4 instances based on subject interest and have an account on each, logged in on each when I want to post. When I have something to say I post to the relevant instance using that instance’s account. Is this right? Or should I only have 1 mastodon identity (account) and post only to 1 primary instance, and toot references to people in other instances as necessary using @username@instance to ensure they see it? How do you all manage this?

Starting with the XS/XS Max (Sept 2018) and iPhones forward, shooting in 30fps provides better dynamic range than 60fps. In 30fps mode, the iPhone takes alternating frames every 60th of a second, alternating between bright and dark exposures, and then the A12 processor analyzes each frame pair and intelligently combines them to expand the dynamic range of the video. This feature is avail in both stock and 3rd party apps. Use 60 for crisp realism; 30 for dynamic range.

I spent some time today reviewing a series of instances as I search for an replacement (tired of ads). PixelFed is a cool solution with lots of promise! Now, if we can just grow the membership with folks who take of something other than their cats and what they had for dinner we’ll be rocking.

Is it me? Or I has everyone’s feeds become 40-50% ads? Instagram has become so ad-driven that to me, it is almost unusable... or at a minimum certainly undesirable. Are there viable alternatives? Is ready for prime time yet?

image quality has finally come of age with the Xs and 11 and there are few reasons to buy a compact anymore. The app by has the best user experience and feature set in my view. Not suggesting an iPhone will best my M4 sensor, but sometimes the best for everyday life is the one you'll always have with you. Still searching for a good iOS app without ongoing subscription fees though. Thoughts?
