With Apple Silicon M1 ARM chip being impressive performance wise, do you think there will come an ARM alternative for Linux as well? Is this success due to RISC architecture and clean slate situation (Vs having to support x86 bloat legacy) or has Apple made some unique breakthrough that cannot be beat by other processor makes? Asking #fedi

Thank you so much for hosting such a wonderful instance for the Scottish diaspora!

The web doesn't have to be "five giant sites filled with screenshots of the other four" (h/t @tveastman!) - with interoperability, co-ops, nonprofits and startups can demonopolize the net.

At what point do we make it socially unacceptable to keep using Facebook? What does Facebook have to do for that to happen? It feels like we just keep making more excuses: "I only use Facebook2[Instagram]", "Facebook is friends with all of my friends and I'll be socially isolated", "I'm monetarily dependent on Facebook", "Sure facebook knows they are harming me, but they also do X that I like".
