Remember what Stallman did ~30 years ago when proprietary software dominated, he didn't recommended abstinence he came up with a positive answer aka Free Software. We need to do the same with today's evolving technology (cloud, saas, IoT, whatever). Ignoring it will change nothing we have to get engaged and shape it in a freedom and privacy respecting way.

Testing seedboxs for the youtube replacement.

Am seeding vier webRTC torrent app on fast home broadband two videos:

Am looking for some feedback to see if my seed's are added to the swarm, can you try to watch them and tell me the number of peers and try and download them as torrents and tell me if you see my seeds.


I'm tired of this idea that if you run Linux you should be able to use the terminal and you must be a developer or hacker. My dad happily uses Linux and he barely knows how to turn on a computer. Some non-techy people just like privacy and freedom.

@charlag Here's an example on a New York City rooftop. They're growing strawberries on one of the most densely packed areas

That's a lot of growing area in a relatively small space

"I love that illustrations have become such a key part of the tech branding landscape. But here's an observation: tech illustrations often feature the same sets of things: young, white people (usually men), surrounded by gadgets, with a cup of coffee, in a beautiful tech world."

Love these inclusive design explorations!

The UK has led the world in one of the biggest moves we have seen in the fight against corruption for years and the fight against anonymous corporations. More than half of the companies named in the Panama Papers were registered in the UK’s Overseas Territories.

Sometimes you climb the Shard and sometimes you get stuck in and campaign for a decade (or longer). There is a need for diversity of tactics.

I feel bad that we as Tusky were not prepared to take new users. We basically have no onboarding flow because we've never expected people to join mastodon through us. People are used to do everything though the apps, though.

Decade of training people to search things through app stores has huge effect. That's going to be a problem for PWAs too.

That's a big problem for free software.

Over the past four days there has been a City Nature Challenge between over 60 cities globally to spot and record the most wildlife.

More than 350,000 wildlife records have been created and 10,000+ people have been involved. I find this strangely moving: lots of interconnected people who care about and in this case spending a little time creating a record in an app.

Hello! I really like my feed: I learn lots of new things about #infosec, #crypto, #coops and #opensource.

However I'm missing some things--can you help me find them?

I want to talk more about people, working with them, their limitations and potential. I want to talk about #governance, #facilitation, #voting, #cognitivebiases and other concrete things that can be tried (and falsified) in #groups.

Let me know if you're interested, or boost if you think you have followers who are interested.


The Atlantic takes a closer look at how Slack managed to create a more diverse tech team than most other US tech companies, e.g.:

- recruit via training programs focused on women, black and Latino engineers
- ditch whiteboard interviews
- wipe personal identifiers from code reviews
- standardize interview questions
- perform "mock interviews" with existing hires.

there is going to be a reinactment of the first few days of the greenham march this summer .i am making two banners for the event

never forget greenham 1981 - remember greenham 1981

In the South Pacific "many island dwellers see themselves as living not in the confined space of islands but in the vast space of archipelagoes in the boundless expanses of the sea"

On the islands being lost to changing climate: "We've had the funeral for that island—it's over. But you need to save the others."

Hey mastodon admins, the 25th may is coming closer and so the #GDPR. I don't think the Data Protection Authorities will be a big problem at the moment, they are also overwhelmed by the new regulations and they would try to solve the problem in a favorable way before sanctioning an instance.
The real problem will be lawyers trying to gain money from instances which don't follow the regulations imposed by the GDPR. So the big question is, what do we need to do to comply these rules? #mastoadmin

It's interesting that the WWW is no longer mentioned, it's the internet now and the view of the internet hardly steps outside the the guy from the think tank touched on the wider web, but bitcoin was the intro to this view ;)

In case you have ever wondered whether or not history and international politics were sometimes goofy as all get-out, I present the Three Hundred and Thirty Five Years' War, which may or may not have actually existed:
