One of the most requested features on Mastodon is a built-in language translation system, where you can click on a post and it automatically translates it into your language.

If this is important to you, and if you are comfortable using Github, please give this issue a thumbs up to let the developers know that this feature is wanted:


(I thought this was already being worked on, but I cannot find any official announcements saying this.)

Achievement unlocked! New York Times mentions Nextcloud as alternative for business users moving away from Google!

"Google is charging small businesses for apps after more than a decade of free use. Business owners say Google is being callous." @nytimes

It is a terrible shame that people would violate the privacy of some of the justices...

If only someone had maintained the right to privacy core to the human experience.

Whoa, @Matomo update on @yunohost went completely without a hitch. Looks like a bug that affected me (and required disabling of some plugins/themes before upgrades) got fixed? Nice.

I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at mch2022.org

Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.

I've done a "Beginner's Guide to Nextcloud", which goes through the basics of what @nextcloud is and how to make your own:


It's written from the perspective of a non-technical person who just wants to make their own services and doesn't want to use command lines or FTP.

Feel free to share with anyone curious about Nextcloud, and feedback is always welcome of course!

But if we can embrace decentralization, and specifically embrace a more peer-to-peer relationships, and open standards for communication, we can ensure that every multi-decade computer can communicate with every other multi-decade computer.

The multi-decade web?

The peer-to-peer web.

A web independent of the internet.

I don't understand why anyone would launch their chatroom on discord when they could do so on Matrix.

Why choose a closed source, centralized platform over the open source, federated, one that offers end to end encryption?

I mean, they have every right to do so, it's just a choice I don't understand.

If you're interested in making your own instant messaging server, I would recommend following @snikket_im

They are trying to make XMPP messenger servers easier for ordinary people to use and host. It's not quite ready yet, but they are in mass beta testing and should launch soon 🤞

XMPP is a good decentralised alternative to Whatsapp etc so it would be brilliant if it can be made accessible to everyone.
