πŸŽ‰ Welcome to newcomers! πŸŽ‰

A few personal tips:

πŸ‘Œ 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..

πŸ‘ 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 (codeberg.org/Eloston/ungoogled) as certain things only work under Chrom(ium) and I only just realised Google requires a Google account to install extensions.

Wow.

Hint: You can bypass this restriction using this the Ungoogled Extension Installer: github.com/UnnoTed/Ungoogled-C

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.

I know others have commented on it (as have I*) but the irony of Twitter forcing people to 'quote retweet' to fix disinformation and trolling in the run up to the US election, while Mastodon explicitly disallows the functionality because that's exactly what it leads to.
