So, I'm wondering. Would anyone care to watch me – very much not a pro, but an enthusiast who has played a lot (depending on your definition) of Zork and Myst in my time – play classic DOS point-and-click adventure games on #Twitch? Maybe even help me out a bit over the chat when I get stuck, if you like? Monkey Island, stuff like that.
Is there any interest for that out there? (hashtag inspired by @gargron's twitch talk)
Good time to remember that the EFF's HTTPS Everywhere extension is a great way to avoid ISPs tampering with HTTP pages: https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere
Want to resist the easy way? Install this Firefox extension and get redirected from AMP to HTML automatically! https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/amp2html/
This is a really disturbing development. Please resist, don't visit AMP pages if you can avoid it.
Ok. This is a song walktrough of #Zork I. This is awesome! https://debsanderrol.bandcamp.com/track/walkthrough

It sorta feels like we're creating this hierarchy where the tech elite can get a nice clean OS with their privacy protected and without spyware/junkware/adware/etc., whereas the unwashed masses have a choice between 1) paying obscene prices for a FruitPhone or 2) getting ads/spyware blasted in their face 24/7.
Reminds me of this talk (https://www.ted.com/talks/christopher_soghoian_your_smartphone_is_a_civil_rights_issue), except instead of just being a rich vs poor divide, it's like techies get a secret coupon code
Look at that. So proud. :D https://www.reddit.com/r/patreon/comments/7ibzc3/best_alternative_to_patreon/
However those pledges are anonymous, and I cannot put your name on the sponsors page or unlock Discord access based on that. I really wish Liberapay at least allowed *those* things.
Please boost! This kind of opportunity to topple a near monopoly with FLOSS does not come often!
Are there other FLOSS #crowdfunding platforms?

Vice's publication Motherboard says that "To Save Net Neutrality, We Must Build Our Own Internet" and will start publishing articles on how to set up decentralized internet infrastructure and start your own ISP.
That's going way beyond traditional journalism. That's really awesome!
