How to find and interact with toots that haven't reached your instance yet: https://dev.glitch.social/@cassolotl/99942232570954068
1) there is a growing network of people working on a #public federated chat network based on XMPP. There has been a lot of activity in the space in recent years. This activity is partly due to the development sprints, many of which last year have been organized by @pep
2) a bunch of new (and existing) clients continue working on usability (cross platform, consistent UIs, support for mobile, end-to-end encryption). Particularly web clients such as ConverseJS by @jcbrand are promising.
3) A directory to search public discussion channels exists: https://search.jabbercat.org/rooms/1
4) Ongoing experimentation with what can be built on top of XMPP as a federated protocol by for example @Goffi
5) Conversations for Android has secured funding to implement a Voice / Video calls!
Little-known Mastodon features:
Profile directory: You can opt-in to being listed on your server's public profile directory, and you can use hashtags in your bio to appear under those hashtags
Featured hashtags: You can choose hashtags to be displayed on your public profile so that people can browse all your posts under those hashtags
this is our very first toot.
"The Hambach Forest, which one could call the last “primeval” forest in Central Europe, is being stubbed for Europe’s biggest climate pollutant – the Rhenish lignite mining area of RWE (Rheinisches Braunkohlerevier), in which RWE mines brown coal. Whole villages and the health of human beings are destroyed in this process.
To prevent all of this it we squatted the Hambacher Forest and take part in other effective and direct Actions."

At meeting of randomly selected local people there are differing views but a respectful tone
In an airless library in north London, 56 people are trying to help fix not one global crisis but two. There are students and builders, a civil servant, an entrepreneur, a restaurateur, a support worker. There are immigrants and retirees and even a retired immigrant.
This is Britain’s first climate assembly, a randomly selected panel of local people convened by the London borough of Camden to consider what can be done to confront the climate emergency. The jurors have been assembled to listen to briefings, pose questions, assess facts, debate and discuss, and then ultimately recommend action to Camden council. The big question before them is what action the district can take to limit global heating and its impact.Continue reading...
Question: Does anyone know of a source for long & narrow colour displays to hook up with a pi?
Looking for something min 15cm, max 24cm, 2-4cm high. Resolution not so critical (16px high is good enough!). Character displays a-plenty, but dot matrix or TFT / OLED seem impossible to find (Or > 150 euro).
I do projects on/with/about computers, networks, infrastructures. he/him
