We are a collective body of feminists who critically explore and develop everyday skills and information technologies in the context of free speech, free software and open hardware. We chew on the roots of control and domination, disrupt patriarchal societies and imagine better alternatives.
Eclectic Tech Carnival (/etc) is a gathering that happens whenever and wherever someone feels a need to organize it and finds the resources and collaborators to do so.
To do list in left hand
-watch left hand a lot.
-cross out when done

Honestly, whoever has an idea for a spam detection measure for Mastodon, and by that I do mean an implementation, get in touch with me, I'll pay for it.
I've been thinking about solutions for the past few days but the more I think about them the more they appear pointless.
Earlier this month, the New York Times published a rare, beautifully illustrated piece on the importance of organic, open source seeds for the future of food. Well worth the read:
Masto mods and admins, please open - new anti-spam tool
Say hello to Ivory, a new anti-spam tool for Mastodon. I've been working on this under wraps for the masto.tech mod team this weekend. This can auto-handle reports for you. Please let me know if you're having troubles setting it up or running it. It's using Selenium (I know, I know) so things will probably break. Still, it's a workable stopgap measure while we await the Moderation API.

If you run an instance that has closed invitations (by policy, not temporarily due to load or spam), I'd be interested in chatting with you about why your instance is closed, and how/if you allow new members, and what you do for people who you can't/won't let in. (I run a closed instance myself and LOVE it, so I'm just looking to get a sense of current practice, not for debate.) #mastodamins
