Hi Fediverse

it seems to me that switching.social closed down it's services. All social media accounts are deleted and the site is currently offline.

Unfortunately, I have no clue what happened, I'm as surprised as you are. I already contacted the French, Italian and Turkish version of the site.

In case someone knows anything about what happened or has backups of one/multiple pages of the website, I would be very happy to get in touch with you.

Hey there @switchingsocial
Your website reads "The most ethical way of buying books is from your nearest bookstore" ("Local Bookshops" section)
I wonder if this assertion entails environmental considerations as well?
I'm not saying eBooks are more eco-friendly than physical books, nor vice-versa (I don't know).
Just that some pointers on both aspects would be nice. I don't have any at hand, but looking forward to reading on these topics!

It's pretty amazing that you can develop an app using KDE's libraries in KDE's IDE, have wonderful artists make your project artwork in KDE's painting app and edit a video about it all in KDE's video editor. The number of organizations that could tell the same story can be counted on one hand. The scope of what the #KDE community does is stunning.

@switchingsocial I dont know if you caught this. But just after I started on Mastodon I ran across your profile. Your web site inspired me to get rid of the big tech, introduced me to Yunohost and start a podcast to show other people like me how easy it really is. If you wouldnt mind it giving it a listen and some tips on what things I should cover over the course of the podcast.
boneheadmedia.com/blog/series/ there is also a vidcast for tutorials.

⚠️ WE SHIPPED IT! 🎉

Just watched #TheGreatHack on #Netflix. What I appreciated about this #documentary on #Facebook and the whole #CambridgeAnalytica scandal, is that it's one of the few #privacy #documentaries to get that protecting personal data isn't just about not seeing personalized ads for stuff you're more likely to want. It's about protecting ourselves from mass psychological manipulation and behavior modification techniques. These are techniques that actually work *best* when people believe they don't.
