I changed the password on my server, but my fingers haven't got the memo yet.

My two (enormous) stories about how companies turn you and your data into cash, and how to stop them, are both out today! You can read them for free!

Happy that I was able to work in shout-outs to #Mastodon and @pixelfed

My experience on #mastodon so far

- I used to be twitter addicted but now I am opening mastodon first
- moderators are really really helpful & committed to safe environment
- @Gargron has impressed us with swift addition to rules about casteism which is India’s Racism
- Dalits, Minorities & Women face such hateful replies on twitter but here it is truly a safe space
- nice to read so much good content without toxicity
- the small handle big handle thing is over

I absolutely love it 😍

If this new H.P. Lovecraft movie doesn't contain shocking racism then I'm calling foul.

Hope to see more Mastodon servers pop up to share the load!

If you want your server to be advertised on joinmastodon.org, check out joinmastodon.org/covenant for conditions and instructions (but please mind I won’t be able to process submissions until at least tomorrow when I get home)
