There were many ideas I had in mind when creating Kith.Kitchen: that it could be more than just a mircoblog; from providing useful tools for finding and creating recipes, to helping people organise around food-related social causes.

With this in mind I'd like to set up a group to help run the project as a cooperative, to keep it sustainable and help realise its potential.

If you're interested in helping, please let me know - no experience required, just a desire to help grow our community!

Wanna have a bit of fun watching people get all confused while revealing society's inherent patriarchal bias?

Privacy is an upper class luxury. You need to have both technical knowledge and a bunch of resources in order to afford it. You can go and shout about privacy all you want and the evils of surveillance capitalism but this won't matter a bit so long wage slavery and capitalism itself is a thing.

Go ahead and be 'private' in your luxury home, with your personal home server and mobile phone that costs more than a months wage in countries that capitalism have wrecked.

Open social media for the UK

A social media community hosted in the UK; part of the Mastodon/ActivityPub federated social network, which allows you to follow users on other communities. It's a bit like Twitter but without a single company in control.

If you use this server, you are required to abide by our Code of Conduct. If you don't like it, there are plenty of other communities you can use.

If you're coming here from Twitter, there are some very useful services to help you find friends and automatically crosspost toots that you might like to set up once you're signed in.

Backers

This is a volunteer-run community administered by @floppy, and hosted by Mastohost in the UK. Please support our running costs by joining the Open Collective and becoming a backer. Thanks go to our existing backers - this place exists because of them!

Service status is available from our status page and the @status account.
