Anyone using #Scuttlebutt?
All underwater by 2055.
The COVID-19 tracking app in Singapore is released by the government as Free Software under GPLv3. I am not saying I support such apps. However, it speaks of great wisdom that they release it in source, under copyleft. https://www.tech.gov.sg/media/technews/six-things-about-opentrace
The first victim of #covid19 was neoliberalism.
An MIT study concluded "We find it is very likely that Morales won the required 10 percentage point margin to win in the first round of the election on October 20, 2019".
The OAS report was all based on fabricated arguments.
Funny -or sad- fact: The question was never whether Evo won or lost the elections. The question was if he won with more than 10 % over the second place or not.
Did you feel the Bern?
Our tiny socialist programming group https://github.com/marxism is looking for contributors! We have lots of great ideas (specifically @aeshthetic has lots of great ideas) but we're only two people with a total of four hands and very little free time. If you're interested, @ one of us!
Things we're working on right now:
https://marxist.space, a very curated selection of resources for learning Communists, which needs a major overhaul to make it more usable and discoverable
https://github.com/marxism/MarXXIsts, a modern theory contributor-oriented platform
Things we also want to work on:
A leftist-focused MOOC (possibly as a fork of OpenMOOC)
An e-reader platform with clients that allows for syncing of comments/highlighting/annotations for all the common formats

I was asked, if Twitter did indeed adopt #ActivityPub instead of coming up with something new, would it be better or worse for the decentralized social web?
If you are an EU citizen, consider sending a GDPR request to some of the tech megacorps.
Remember, you are entitled to, within 30 days of their receipt of the request, to be informed:
A) What personal information they hold about you
B) Who they have shared it with
The cost of providing this is not exactly negligible, as it can only be sent in a secure manner, and sending requests are a valid form of protest, whenever you feel one of them have been behaving poorly.
We're living in a time where goverments moving towards more racist and classist borders, preventing those in need to enter more safe spaces.
If you're involved in studying how the #climatecrisis will be a key driver in migration you might also contribute to goverments developing strategies to counter it.
They might choose climatejustice, but they also might choose facism. Make shure your studies don't contribute to facism.
#COP25 is discussing right now "Climate Action in the Travel and Tourism Sector". The panel is formed only by companies and private sector initiatives. They claim to be reducing paper and plastic use. What a meaningless discussion!
