Something cool in Mastadon v3.0.0: the new image upload tool!

When you edit an image that is included in a toot you get easier access to the focus tool, a preview of what it'll look like, and a better UI for adding alt text descriptions.

I'm tired of diversity and inclusion being pushed as a business case because research shows that it drives higher revenue.

Diversity and inclusion should be default because we're all human beings.

That's it.

I'll be at to talk about CSS, , and a workshop on improving diversity at events. This opportunity to present some suggestions about browser limitations sounds amazing! If you have anything that you'd like to submit, I'll help rep there!
