@WAHa_06x36 I started seeing this error in the Toot! App. Not sure if it is local to me or not.

What did everyone think about the new stuff #apple showed today? I thought it was interesting how much they mentioned #privacy and 'on-device' recommendations. Pretty obvious counterpoint to Facebook/Google.

The Special Event is interesting... They keep promising they aren't going to sell our over concerns.

Disc World: Ankh-Morpok. Pretty fun with 3 random folks at the con. Just as I don't know their real identities, I also got all of my opponents hidden identities wrong. Still won πŸ˜‚ Having buildings on the board early (see yellow) sure doesn't hurt. Light-hearted game for those who don't mind some chaos and the quirky theme. Plays in less than a hour.

@robert There's a*tiny* little easter egg hidden on that map ;)

Hello Fediverse,

this is my new #introduction.

I'm a #motion #designer based in #London #UK. I'm also a #guitar player with a somewhat eclectic taste in #music : from #progressive #metal to #jazz to #psychedelic #rock and so on.

I'm also into #gaming , #boardgames and #videogames.

I'm aware of the importance of online #privacy in this time and age and I'm always on the look for better privacy oriented #software and services.

Please feel free to follow me if you share any of my interests.

I remember listening to a lecture on ancient Middle East that includes the mysterious Sea People.

Happy 1st Birthday Boardgames.Social! I am a terrible planner (way more P than J if that means anything to you) so today’s gaming festivities will be as hoc. Happy gaming!

Software is trending in the wrong direction. Decreased transparency, centralisation, and proprietary monopolies.

In this article I describe the 5 ingredients to ethical software:

- open data
- open source
- distributed deployment
- decentralised hosting
- end to end encryption

Let's make software less about profit, and more about people again.
