Next Wednesday we'll present Open Tech Will Save Us #4, featuring @email@example.com, all-around privacy, P2P and decentralisation fan, who will discuss the decentralized social media ecosystem that they're working on! https://matrix.org/open-tech-will-save-us/
Does anyone host #Matrix or #Riot on their own server? I feel this would be a great fallback for private #messaging, especially among family/friends (having full control of data, compared to, say, #Signal, which is centralised).
I also (still) want to try out #Session, but the same old issue makes it difficult: network effect. I proposed trying it with some of my family (now finally on Signal). I got no response. I could almost hear them thinking, "Jeez, not again!"
1. The 'Quit' feature does indeed delete browsing data, but the app *doesn't actually quit*, so has to be manually swiped away;
2. Private tabs have to be manually opened every time; there appears to be no way to automatically open one when the app first launches.
Please tell me if I'm missing a trick here...
The EU has signalled a deeper investigation of the Google/Fitbit deal https://www.ft.com/content/aba45bc9-ffc8-411e-ac29-dbb3171f4886 (paywall)
This is good news, but we also need consumer pressure to stop the deal going ahead, so please sign our petition to the @EU_Commission
Hi folks! 9 years ago (to the day), the late Aaron Swartz made the first commit to SecureDrop, which was then called DeadDrop. Today the project is used by >70 media orgs around the world.
It's an open source whistleblower submission platform that uses the Tor network to protect source anonymity. We're also working on a next-generation integrated workstation for journalists based on Qubes OS:

escapism and mental health, anime
We need escapism. While it won't solve our problems, it does make them more bearable and helps us retain our sanity during harsh times.
I finished reading another volume of an isekai Japanese Novel, and suddenly I found myself immersed inside that world; and I feel refreshed after weeks of work related stress.
I missed this peace.
Now I'm better prepared to endure another week of work.
Also, fuck capitalism. ✊
I would love to try flashing a #Thinkpad with #Coreboot/#Libreboot at some point, but after seeing what it involves (flash plugs etc.), I'm not so sure I want to step any closer to the edge of that rabbit hole. I can already see the hours of trial and error and stress, with potentially nothing to show for it. I have a habit of putting too much on my plate...
It's not necessarily *my* FOSS projects that I want to be successful, but rather the FOSS ecosytem as a whole. I have stewardship over my little slice of it, but the FOSS ecosystem is a much broader (and singular) thing that I believe we all have a joint responsibility in caring for.
All free software is ours for the improving: projects will welcome our contributions and we should focus on broadening our impact.
To accomplish this, it helps to work on reducing the mental leap it takes for you to go from user to contributor, until the line between the two roles is difficult to distinguish. Contribute early, contribute often, and you'll be rewarded with a healthier free software ecosystem.

I'm wondering if it's worth having my #git repos on two different sites. It's proving to be too stressful setting things up in and out of #Atom editor to reliably mirror one repo to the other, without conflicts etc. Any suggestions?
@codeberg Is it possible to mirror repos with Codeberg (in my case, mirror all commits from GitLab to Codeberg)?
