Pinned toot

I'm currently accepting commissioned projects/work. Please feel free to send me a private message or an email to mail@pedropintosilva.com

I've been working in this field for 7 years which has made me value how important is the client-designer relation besides I really enjoy the process of understanding and helping one's vision becoming reality.

@aral WTF?? The dude presenting at this event went from CNIL to Facebook?
Fuck!

The latest is available now as a snap at snapstore but I would advise to get the flatpak instead, mainly due to its fully theme compatibility (just be sure to uninstall any previous version you might have before)

@aral @andreipetcu Mozilla gets money from search engines. The most popular is Google. If the most popular would become DuckDuckGo or Qwant then Firefox would switch it's default. Mozilla does not fight surveilance capitallism on the search engine side but ignoring all the work it does in this regard is simply not fair. Just check mozilla.org/vote No other browser vendor comes close to the work Mozilla is doing.

It's quite refreshing to only read posts from people you follow. No "You may like", "XY likes", "Suggested", "Sponsored",... posts. And in the order they have been posted. Sometimes less is more. #backtotheroots #mastodon
