Just updated to the latest Mastodon version. Honestly I was expecting it to break horribly and I would declare my experiments in the fediverse pretty much over...worked fine! Official documentation on the site, as well as the release upgrade instructions on GitHub, made it a breeze!.....noice!

Teaching remotely during is a challenge! However, in their rush to embrace the most convenient tools possible, many institutions are ignoring the of users...in this case children.

It’s great to see that solutions like BigBlueButton exist- free for all and open source! My students have found it great for remote lessons.

Open source is catching up in the ease-of-use arena, but is it ever going to be enough to convince administrators and teachers....

If anyone knows a super simple way of integrating webventions in Hugo let me know…because I am all out of ideas!

Integrating Collabora Online Server into your Nextcloud install is fiddly, but surprisingly achievable! It's not quite perfect yet...but it's a totally workable, privacy-respecting replacement for Google Drive on your own Nextcloud instance.
