Our Policy Fellow, Bradley M. Kuhn, explains how we can restore #copyleft equality and rid ourselves of toxic proprietary relicensing (sometimes imprecisely called dual licensing) with a novel copyleft clause (invented by Richard Fontana for copyleft-next). #GPL #FOSS #FOSSLicensing #AGPL

The next major release after @LibreOffic 6.4, which will be launched on
January 29, will be 7.0. The change of numbering is based on
the fact that this will be the first release using the new ODF 1.3 file
format as default. Of course, the change of numbering also fits with the
10th anniversary, which will be celebrated on September 28

Over the past few years I've noticed myself stopping to do custom tweaks on my own system, and instead working to fix the underlying issue for everyone.

I finally wrote my thoughts about this down in a more coherent form

i think we could all use a little less of, 'hot takes', and a little more of, 'hot gives'. just my two cents

@estoricru I'm making a Mastodon client using GTK and Zig. Even with GTK being somewhat heavyweight, and me being new to it, it uses an order of magnitude less RAM than the web app. Yet corporations with many professional programmers working for them cannot do this, for some reason.

Alphaville (1965), directed by Jean-Luc Godard, came a few years after the book Fahrenheit 451 (1953). It’s probably not as well known, but it’s actually a pretty surreal entry in the #SciFi and arguably #Cyberpunk genres

What’s interesting to me is that there are no overt displays of futurism. Only the story and characters are displaced from the present of the 1965. The plot (and violence) carries the narrative, not necessarily the technology

how do i find a cool #Matrix server to move my account to from because, you know #distributed and stuff.

In general, codes of conduct that include the following are immediately suspect and I'm going to silence without further investigation: "generally unpopular opinions voiced respectfully will be fine."

It is a, uncoincidentally, a common phrase in soapbox instances.

Neenster,, gleasonator, qoto......

I think they're copying qoto's CoC, but if anyone can identify a further upstream origin, go for it.

Don't you dare try to pretend that you didn't know what kind of scum Jeffrey Epstein was when you took his filthy money.

Casually remembered that I have a account. It has 16 GB of documents I uploaded 4-5 years ago for various reasons.

Great list of additional reasons for why accessibility is important beyond compliance and helping those with official disabilities. #a11y

Status report and wrap-up up of poll discussion and decision since yesterday:

- Spam attacks continue, fine-grained blocks are circumvented quickly using another anonymous email provider for registration. All attacks come via tor switching IPs every few requests.
- Many expressed sympathy to keep access via tor network open as there are valid use cases (repressive countries etc).


I REALLY hate FUD like this. “Google” is not “reading” Signal messages. Your Signal notifications are training on-device machine learning because your Android “Smart Replies” notification feature is on, plus you chose to have Signal expose message contents via notifications.
