you can tell the expression "not safe for work" is old, because it comes from a time when work computers were the main ones a lot of people used aside from their home ones, as opposed to having one in their pocket at all times. that's why it's not, say, "not safe for bus".

Le terrain dans l'hémisphère nord de Mars est plutôt jeune et lisse, alors que dans l'hémisphère sud, il y a beaucoup de cratères et le terrain a été formé il y a plus longtemps. L'épaisseur de la croûte est aussi différente entre les deux hémisphères. C'est ce qu'on appelle la dichotomie martienne, Mais l'origine de cette dichotomie est encore sujet à débats

Did you see the news that all of the #JWST instruments are aligned now?

Check out this comparison of one of the newly released calibration images from the MIRI instrument compared to images taken of the same region of space by the WISE and Spitzer space telescopes! Look at that resolution! So many newly resolved stars and structures! 🤩

I can't wait for all the new discoveries we'll make with JWST! #Science data starts in only a couple months!

Le paradoxe du choix entre Twitter et Mastodon : "le nombre d’utilisateurs, très modeste, de Mastodon est à la fois un atout et un inconvénient. Atout pour ceux qui recherchent le confort de petites communautés humaines. Inconvénient pour ceux qui préfèrent être au contact du monde dans sa globalité. Libre à chacun de choisir."

guys, when explaining the #fediverse to new people, just go with the simplest analogy, e-mail. worry about the specifics later. no i don't care if it's not completely accurate, you can make it more "correct" after the fact. you just need to put very basic understanding into new people's heads, you don't need to go

"oh well activitypub is a yoingus sploingus babingyi"

no just say something like

"say you were on outlook, and i was on gmail. we could still send each other emails right? imagine that, but with tweets instead of emails"

i've used this explanation dozens of times, and people always get it.

The fediverse has a unique moderation model - each instance moderates its own users, and can defederate from instances which uphold incompatible moderation policy. This allows for a sustainable model for entirely human moderation (unlike monolithic platforms which often stretch beyond feasible human moderation and rely heavily on bots), but this model only remains sustainable if users are spread out across the fediverse.

If you're new, this is just one reason why you should try to join a smaller instance when you find the opportunity, if you haven't already.

On fediverse, remember that your admin has access to their instance database, and can read whatever you post, and whatever posts you can read, no matter what the access level is (and this includes DMs, of course). This is not significantly different to monolithic social media, except that the admin potentially has a smaller pool of people they can spy on, if they're so inclined. You should always share particularly sensitive information via end-to-end encrypted chat, no matter what platform you're using, fediverse or not.

Hello new people, some of you don't have avatars or bios, please consider setting these and maybe posting before you follow everyone and their mum, a lot of people like to have the reassurance that you're probably a real person and not a bot who's got in somehow

L’air de rien, la Chine fait savoir qu’elle dispose d’un moyen de pression non négligeable sur Musk, et donc par ricochet sur Twitter twitter.com/globaltimesnews/st

Retrouver les étoiles à la place des cœurs et autre "like" de message fait remonter des souvenirs du vieil oiseau bleu, et rien que ça valait le coup de venir ici.
