Rassemblement et accueil du président de La Poste ce matin devant le centre financier

Reminder: I'm trying to assemble a Working Group and a Community Group

This is the time to ask developers of forges (GitLab, Gitea, etc.) and ticket trackers (OpenProject, Taiga, etc.) to implement federation and to join the work on ForgeFed.

If you don't join, you don't get your needs taken into account, and we'll have a less useful lower quality spec.

Reminder, join if this stuff matters to you. And spread the word.

Twitter launch development of new decentralized standard for social media , to be used by their platform.

If Jack's thread was not clear, I drew this map.

Patch, Or Your Solid State Drives Roll Over And Die

Expiration dates on software. Because fuck you. That's why.

I've noticed that the more time I spend on the internet, the more I only read things that were written, like, two weeks ago at most. It feels almost impossible to *find* anything older than that, let alone read it.

How did the internet, a vast medium with almost unlimited storage capacity, become the place where people only read or watch things created in the extremely recent past?

The walkout is for December 10th - 13th. Please do not use YouTube (including Invidios, youtube-dl, etc.) during that time. This information is clear from posts I've seen.

What I haven't seen is people saying why the walkout is happening. From what I can tell, this is to protest the new YouTube ToS that allow YT to delete "commercially unviable" channels.

#29Leaks hash is being DMCA'd... like it's hard to make a magnet link and download the leaked documents about where the super-rich are hiding their money post-panama-papers


i'm having a moment of enthusiasm, thank you all for listening. :blobcatcoffee:

In many places, projects have reached such maturity that we are not asking "How could be do that?" but "How can we improve what we've done? Include more people? Make Floss for everyone?"

It doesn't mean that the movement has no issues. It has, and lots of them. But some have a reckoning and are trying ( and in many classes succeeding).

It would of been very hard for my familly and friends to use Linux if the people of @elementary didn't do what they did, for example...

It's amazing how far free and open source software has come in the last years. I remember installing my first Linux machine, it was not easy. Reading a lot, learning about stuff and meeting people helped me a lot, but not everyone can do that.

Overs the years, FLOSS has become more mainstream, covered more usages of tech. I mean, I can live with a near 100% of floss software, and not feel like I'm missing anything compared to closed plateforms...

Il y a 1 an, #ZinebRedouane, 80 ans, se rend à sa fenêtre pour fermer ses volets, alors qu’une manif de “gilets jaunes” a lieu dans sa rue. Elle reçoit une grenade lacrymogène qui lui explose en plein visage et elle décède le lendemain à l’hôpital.

Depuis, personne n’a été jugé.

They don’t travel, they don’t explore–they live on the street and work every day at a job that does not pay them enough to live anywhere else. There’s nothing sexy about that. It's a sad reflection on the country we live in.

The brutal reality is that the majority of people who live the “ ” are not doing so by choice–they have been forced into it by economic necessity. They may make speeches about “finding themselves” but they are in essence homeless people.
They live in a van because they can’t afford NOT to.

There's a petition to Save the .org top level domain. Apparently, ICANN could still stop it from being sold.
I know, petitions rarely work, but I also know that _sometimes_ they do.
Please consider signing if you _run_ anything there, or if you _use_ or _care about_ anything that's on a .org domain. Also, boosting this to others who follow you, would be very much appreciated.
