As @davatron5000 says, I don't like playing cat and mouse with my privacy. At the same time, I'd prefer to run open-source software rather than iOS. And I've used Android since the HTC Dream.

But using Android without Google apps is just *so* hard. Not only do I have to invoke weird terminal sorcery every six months, but the damn thing doesn't even work very well – I haven't had working push notifications or GPS in a year. Time to throw in the towel?

Tbh, I want this to be something that within my OS; I have payment info stored and if I go into Plasma Discover, elementary's App Store or like doing a checkout on the Web, it just say "Pay" and uses _that_.

That's where the future of digital payments should have gone - my computer/device determines what works and how it works. This + allowing me to specify how to pay for things (use my BTC 🤢 or my business banking account? maybe pull from Venmo?)

mastodon is not just a server (and why that's not necessarily a good thing) by @kity

The post is about the current trend of having "specialized" AP servers rather than the dream of general, extensible ones where you can swap out frontends using the client-to-server API. Happy to hear more people talking and thinking about this!
