The people at Discourse have kindly provided a hosted forum for the Mastodon project. https://discourse.joinmastodon.org/
I don't know how often it would be used. Bugs and feature requests belong on GitHub. This is just for those long-winded discussions, troubleshooting, etc. Kind of like the mastodon admin mailing list, I guess.

ProjectImplicit shows implicit or unconscious biases we all have. Since we can't change the existence of bias, the best way forward ist to make ourselves aware of it, moving from unconscious bias to conscious one, so that we can compensate. I highly recommend taking the test, if you have somewhere to run Flash in a safe env.

Not much there yet, but going forward it'll show generally the progress of features and changes planned for release.
Nofftopia is connected to 167 instances. Use to be over 600, but we had a glitch. It would be extremely rad if y'all could boost this and help get Nofftopia reconnected to the federation! 🍻
Just uploaded new linux/mac packages to https://github.com/diracdeltas/signal-muon/releases (my standalone Chrome-less version of Signal Desktop).

Windows 10 S will only allow you to run apps from the Microsoft Store, which means you can't run iTunes or Chrome, unless you pay US$49 to upgrade it into an actual Windows.
I'm fairly sure RMS warned us around 20 years ago that this kind of stuff was coming, and people laughed and said 'that's paranoia, they'll never lock the desktop down that far'.
🚨🚨🚨 Really major Gmail phishing attack going around right now. Do NOT click on an unexpected "Open in Docs" link.

A thing I want:
Rolling together the NSFW and CW buttons into one "hide" button. It puts the text and any media fully hidden behind a CW, and when you click "see more" it shows both.
But I am shy about suggesting it on the big Github issue list because I know that if I do I'll immediately get 4 people telling me that they like them to be separate.
