My beef with "the Chipotle of x" restaurants is if you put *everything* Chipotle offers on a burrito, you'll get a tasty-if-overstuffed burrito. Try that at Pieology or what have you and you get a gross mess, so you have to be culinarily savvy and make some difficult edits.

I have a PHP-based ActivityPub (micro)blogging service and platform I have begun work on. It is extremely early stages, because I do not have a high rate of code output, but I DO have good project organizational skills and structural design.

If you have interest or experience in PHP, CSS, or Regular Javascript and want to help make a modular, extensible alternative to Mastodon, hit me up. I would be happy to discuss my ideas and hear yours.

Kreative Umsetzung.

"The Spanish DPA issued its first major GDPR fine - $283,000, against the Professional Football League. The League's mobile app obtained access to microphones after user accepted T&C, turned them on once every minute during matches and cross-referenced location data to identify bars that broadcasted matches without paying for a license. There was no clear info about this practice and no possibility to withdraw consent."
