Hallo World,
my name is Lucas and I am currently located in where I spend most of my time working on . I quit traditional social media for good 3 months ago and feel pretty lucky to be here. Lately I am more and more interested in federated systems like ActivityPub and Matrix.

To friends I talk a lot about privacy, digital independence and the danger of big evil corporations.

I am into good books, champagne, open-source software, E2EE and local first tools.

In my free time I try to learn Indonesian and Swift and develop a writing app called ‘Pagi’.

On I collect experiments and side-projects I have worked on.

Thanks for having me. I wish you a nice day.

Lately I enjoy reading "The Three-Body Problem" by Liu Cixin. It's extremely thrilling.

Do you have a subscription to Disney+ Internet? Oh, only Netflix Internet? Dang, I really wanted to show you this website.

Show thread

This video shows toggling of the focus mode and automatic highlighting of all text when scrolling in so it’s easier to search for certain paragraphs.

Super happy with how this turned out.

Will test this over the weekend and hopefully ship on Monday.

watching hundred rabbits, a whole two people, speedrun an alternate-history timeline re-implementation of everything that was close to good about my first 10 years of computers really puts into perspective how wasteful and inefficient the industry is

they've accomplished 90% of the utility in 1% of the time and lines of code

there's something significant being demonstrated in the uxn space and it's way way bigger than two kids on a boat making weird retro styled software

I am going to go to a water park with my friends today. It's gonna be awesome!

Wrote about the simple website and design I came up with for Afterglow Bali.

Does someone know an easy way to sync/backup one S3 (compatible) bucket with another one? Like rsync or something.

“It’s not a problem of getting people to express themselves but of providing little gaps of solitude and silence in which they might eventually find something to say. Repressive forces don’t stop people from expressing themselves but rather force them to express themselves. What a relief to have nothing to say, the right to say nothing, because only then is there a chance of framing the rare, and ever rarer, thing that might be worth saying.”

- Gilles Deleuze

Add .rss or .atom at the end of a profile URL to get the feed for a user on fedi using a feedreader.

Brutaldon also has many theme options with homage to web 1.0 styling.

My favorite free, open source, Mastodon iOS app is Metatext. It's no longer updated but supports alt text and still works very well.

It's good to take breaks or pace yourself in your intake of content. Set boundaries that feel right for you, and reach out to moderators if you need help (don't forget to thank them!).

Philosophy is best read in German. (Instead of English)

Why is iMessage still so buggy and no one talks about it?

Is there a way I can search through my own posts?

Seems like my MacBook (2018) won’t start when I have less than ~15 GB of free disk space. This happend multiple times now. If I have less than this it only shows the loading indicator, gets super hot and eventually crashes.

Did you know there are centralized alternatives to the #Fediverse?

They are great!
Instead of being developed by volunteers for the community they are developed for millionaires with the sole purpose of getting them more money and influence over the "users".

They contain ads and algorithms, so you don't have to decide, what you want to see, but you get to see what makes you addicted, so you view more ads, buy more stuff and thereby support the capitalist system that we all love.

Instead of anonymity you get to enter your phone number and other form of identification, which totally helps against hate speech, right?

I could go on with advantages, but I think it's best you check them out for yourselves.
