#Freedom 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.

What do you do to sway your friends, family and clients to the #Fediverse?
Would love to hear your methods for helping others learn what you already know!
The #statue 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 #historical significance. Hard decisions
“I think most #Christians would agree that Satan is an important part of Christian history, but if you put up a bunch of statues of him in your #church, people might start to make assumptions about who you worship and what ideals you glorify”

Looking for some education on #Mastodon. 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 #iPhone XS/XS Max (Sept 2018) and iPhones forward, shooting #4K #video 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 #camera apps. Use 60 for crisp realism; 30 for dynamic range.
I spent some time today reviewing a series of #PixelFed instances as I search for an #Instagram 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 #pictures of something other than their cats and what they had for dinner we’ll be rocking.
#iPhone image quality has finally come of age with the Xs and 11 and there are few reasons to buy a compact #digital #camera anymore. The #ProCamera app by #Cocologics has the best user experience and feature set in my view. Not suggesting an iPhone #image will best my #Canon #5D M4 sensor, but sometimes the best #camera for everyday life is the one you'll always have with you. Still searching for a good iOS #slideshow app without ongoing subscription fees though. Thoughts?
