The Small Web isn’t about going back to the days of GeoCities. It’s about going forward differently, using modern tech in a non-colonial manner.
It’s not about building clones of Twitter, YouTube, etc. There’s no way anyone can self-host a dozen different services. Instead, it’s about having a single-tenant place on the Web that you own and control without technical knowhow; a place you can add Twitter, YouTube, etc., *features* to.

It's that time of year again, #Hacktoberfest is approaching!
#Owncast is encouraging people to participate by offering our own t-shirts on top of the regular Hacktoberest shirt!

It‘s been almost two months now since we submitted it. Anyone know how long it usually takes to get a response?

Note: if you upgrade to GNOME 43, a number of quick settings are included in the system menu but quick bluetooth connection settings aren’t.
If you were using Bluetooth Quick Connect for that, the extension is currently being updated to support GNOME 43 so you should have that functionality back soon.
Hopefully this will be part of the quick settings in GNOME proper going forward. It’s what I use everyday to connect to my earphones.
