Good god. The EU's ruinous Article 13 got passed because ... some European MEPs accidentally *pushed the wrong* button.
As @firstname.lastname@example.org says, "It's the Edward Tufte apocalypse. It'd be funny, if it didn't make me want to smash my laptop."

I have written a #guide to help people who want to run their own fedi instance but don't know where to start. It covers the basics of networking, use of command line, Linux system administration, just enough to get you started.
We are an ethical alternative to Instagram.
The project is still young, but we are getting close to a polished v1.0 release with federation support!
We can't wait to join the fediverse. ❤️ #pixelfed
Having a Linux computer is like being a gearhead with a car in the garage that you love to tinker with. The radio's busted and you've never been able to fix it, but you've built the engine exactly to your specifications and you can endlessly swap tips with other gearheads.
On the other hand, if you're not the type who likes to pop open the hood and get your hands dirty, and you just want something that won't crap out on you when you need a working vehicle, then you should probably buy a Mac.
