🎉 Welcome to newcomers! 🎉
A few personal tips:
👌 the Fediverse is NOT twitt*r! enjoy a more relaxed, courteous, benevolent way of interacting! you are part of it!
🤚 introduce yourself! also fill bio and post a couple "toots" before following people to have more chance they'll follow back..
👍 favourite and follow generously! This is how to create link around. No algorithm-god is spying on you, telling you who to follow, what to read! \o/
⚠️ many people care about CW... learn about that
So I don’t use Chrome but I have Ungoogled Chromium (https://codeberg.org/Eloston/ungoogled-chromium) as certain things only work under Chrom(ium) and I only just realised Google requires a Google account to install extensions.
Hint: You can bypass this restriction using this the Ungoogled Extension Installer: https://github.com/UnnoTed/Ungoogled-Chromium-Extension-Installer
The lengths we have to go to in order to protect our privacy from basic everyday things is ridiculous. We need fundamental change. Surveillance capitalism needs to die.
Looking forward to working with colleagues at COL in progressing open courses for technical and vocational skills development. #CTVSD2
