Very proud to have released the first chapters of „The Rails 6 Way“, the book I‘m writing with Obie and Tom <3 It is a lot of work, but that makes me even happier to have reached this milestone

Many times, I've seen arguments made like this: "I'd try Mastodon, but I already have Twitter followers", or "I'd like to use OSM, but Google Maps has better data for my city", or, in my case, "I'd like to use, but GitHub has better discoverability".

Platforms for which popularity improves the utility of the service are skewed in favor of the incumbents. New platforms face a chicken-and-egg problem. You have to decide - will you help it, or exacerbate it? Those are the only two choices you have.

Don't let that cool new platform die in obscurity while you wait for it to become popular.

Hab mir auf Kleinanzeigen ein günstiges Thinkpad #x230 geschossen um:

a) Bastelspaß zu haben (Display Panel tauschen, SSD einbauen)

b) Einen Test/Bastelrechner zu haben wo nur Open Source Software genutzt wird (Ausnahme: Treiber)

Würde gerne wissen wie es sich heute anfühlt rein Open Source zu leben für alltägliche Dinge wie:

Musik hören
Fotos verwalten
Fotos bearbeiten
Videos bearbeiten

Habt ihr da irgendwelche Seiten, Blogs oder andere Empfehlungen wo man sich da schlaulesen kann?

@aral I‘m following your Let‘s Encrypt journey here, sounds awesome :) One question about that: I usually put an nginx in front of my Node app for caching, load balancing (if applicable) and also TLS. I thought about removing that and put Node directly onto the Web. But the consequence is, that Node would need to run as root because it needs to listen on 80/443. What are your thoughts on that?

I'm pleased to announce the latest @jepsen project: Elle, a black-box, linear-time checker for transactional (or single-key!) consistency models. I've been working on this with Peter Alvaro for over a year now, and I'm delighted to finally have it out the door.

Elle has been the secret behind most of the recent Jepsen analyses, and we believe its techniques represent a novel and useful contribution to the field.

Listening to @mkhl reading a story on a Slack call, is one of the beautiful things at INNOQ <3

Hey #fediverse!

Is there any appropriate alternative to Apple Photos or Google Photos for personal photo libraries?

Needed features:
* #storage on local #NAS
* #sync between devices
* app for #iOS
* keep only thumbnails on devices

How do you manage your photo libraries? I'm excited to know!

Or, as the Germans say: My dear mr. singing club

Sometimes, when my cup of coffee is empty and I‘m too lazy to make a new cup, I just watch James Hoffmann make it.

Interessant ist auch die Idee, das in einem Haus mit 66 Parteien exakt nur eine Person „jeden Tag bohrt“.

After a lively discussion with @moonglum I got rid of my YouTube subscription in favour of and proper RSS feeds. I've been test driving a few of my subscriptions and so far I couldn't be happier. No more endless recommendation rabbit holes. And offline support via Plex / youtube-dl. \o/

Why would you choose a #tablet with integrated #LTE / #5G over the wifi-only version even if you had a smartphone with personal hotspot carrying with you all the time?

I'm curious about your opinions! So let's go!

Boost appreciated ;)
