Hey Mastodon fronds
I'm getting close to a technical implementation of the NZ Mastodon Project.
There'll be legal stuff to do after (CoC, ToS, insurance), but, it's getting to where it's feasible.

Engineers can be penalized for refusing to comply with fines and prison"... sounds like a nightmare but it is reality in the #UK and #Australia https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2018/12/new-fight-online-privacy-and-security-australia-falls-what-happens-next #eff #spy #privacy #security
