I regularly see compared communism. There are definitely similarities.

I won't go deeper into the subject but I want to point out that accepting the point is outright dangerous.

Until FOSS can provide for a living in a capitalist environment it should not take pride in the way it accepts contribution.

In isolation it looks very similar to the ideals of communism but in the broader context it exploits contributors more than an average corporation.

My name is Hugh. I am a late stage software developer. Dubious about social media, but willing to give it a try. So here goes.

Work revolves around #emacs and #embedded #linux. Avocational interests lean toward #lisp; just started exploring #clojure.

Typing is easier than clicking. My desktop manager is #i3 running on #archlinux.

Still learning, though sipping at the fire hose of technological changes is increasingly challenging.

I’m looking for Ruby developers who have an app idea, but have never managed to get it built & in the App Store. If that sounds like you, let me know and I’ll put you on the list for my upcoming webinar.

Hey y’all. My name is Graham and I’m a Ruby developer from North Carolina, glad to be here! #introductions

It's a new project where you can find people in the Fediverse and follow them by topic.

Also, you can request to be included. It's a really cool idea.

If you are new to Mastodon or you are looking for more interesting people to follow, you should check it out.

@pointlessone I built a tool to use the Hashtag Search of other instances. Not exactly what you are looking for, but maybe it helps:

I wonder if rationalist communities is present in fediverse.

Please @ me if you know any aspiring rationalists.

It’s been over 2000 years since this quote and it’s still relevant. It’s one of the most common pieces of advice given by present day leaders in any industry.

Cross-tooting Kelly Sutton:

Periodic reminder: it’s faster to create ~20K objects in Ruby than to make one 5ms round trip to the database.

Be selective about what you optimize in your apps!

I gotta say... I understand mastodon even less than I understood twitter. 😕

Hello Assembled People of European Mastodon! I work at @eff on international copyright. You might have heard of #article13, the EU proposal to require © filters on sharing sites.

We're really worried that this could affect services like ActivePub/Mastodon instances, opening them up to lawsuits or requiring expensive filters.

The key vote is on Wednesday -- please call or write your MEP and ask them to vote against #article13 to protect the future of the internet!

Hey guys, junior ruby developer with 1 year of experience here. Nice to meet you all!

Hi everyone!
I'm a freelance ror/js developer living in the mountains of Colorado.

After living in Denver for years, my biggest struggle is keeping in touch with other developers.

I'm hoping to make some connections here.

Anyone working on a project where they'd like to pair?


Not really active in development right now (product owning atm) but like to keep my ear to the ground on my favourite language. Any other Manchester/Liverpool ppl here? #introductions

'lo everyone. I'm an oooold rubyist. Maybe you've seen me around? #introductions

Chrome is now hiding "trivial" subdomains in the URL bar (www[.]domain[.]com shows only domain[.]com ). This is plain wrong, and buggy as hell :/

Hello! I'm a Ruby developer in Oakland, California! #introductions
