[short version] 🙃

are you an artist or creative in the most generic sense of the word, and use #FOSS / #FLOSS / #OpenSource software as part of your workflow?

consider tagging your works with

🐧 #artWithOpenSource

tag and check out the tag for works by your fellow mastodon artists who also prefer Open Sourced alternatives.

🎨 maybe you create art, photography, design, using software like #krita #gimp #ardour #blender, #darktable, #mypaint #inkscape

🎼 ...and music using #ardour #lmms #kxstudio #hydrogen #puredata or distros like #ubuntustudio

📝 ...or when writing stories your tools to go are #plume #libreoffice or #zim

📽 Maybe you make films and animation with #kdenlive #pitivi #synfig

🎮 ...or make games with #godot or #twine

🛠 You might be using tools like #robocut #openCAD #processing or #arduino to create your art or design of any form

🎪 or simply creating art using traditional mediums, doing work in performance art, circus arts or theatre, using any of the above or others to create or document your work.

@korgull Absolutely! To me the open-source community is an example of the best in us, that we can work together coming from differing nationalities, genders, races, political opinions, backgrounds, everything. The rest of the world could pick up a lesson or two from #FLOSS and #Linux.

@breebump you'll be able to find like-minded people w the hashtags of #gimp #krita (the other #foss #floss illustration tool) as well as #ArtWithOpensource

"Public Money, Public Code"

Pourquoi les logiciels financés par l’impôt ne sont pas publiés sous Licence Libre ?

Nous voulons une législation qui requiert que le logiciel financé par le contribuable pour le secteur public soit disponible publiquement sous une licence de Logiciel Libre et Open Source. S’il s’agit d’argent public, le code devrait être également public.

Le code payé par le peuple devrait être disponible pour le peuple!

"Public Money! Public Code!" – Support @FSFE's new campaign for #FLOSS software w/ tax money https://publiccode.eu https://youtu.be/iuVUzg6x2yo

If it is #public #money, it should be public #code as well. I support this call for more public code under a #Free #Software #licence:

@theZacAttacks
This gives me idea:
" Build #FLOSS OS with all useful #decentralized/distributed programs there are"
Mastodon client, Bitmessage, IPFS, ZeroNet, Tox, ...
You name it.

So what I found out yesterday was that there *are* some freelancers / business owners using solely #FLOSS apps/tools/workflows, but that:

1. This can cause problems with clients.
2. When it doesn't cause problems, it's because clients are reasonably techie and share same values.
3. Most people find it difficult to give up Google stuff.

Thanks for the replies and boosts! Check back through this thread:

#MIT has a Digital Currency Initiative that has a report on the decentralized web:

dci.mit.edu/decentralizedweb

If it hasn't been posted before, here it is now. Good read so far, but wish there was some analysis on other tech like #hubzilla or other #federated web hosting and content.

well, in 2017, rendering fonts in 3D is still hard :

aframe.io/docs/0.6.0/component

so, no, can't use your favorite .oft open font,
you have to convert it with some hackish tool that indeed needs some mastering
the simpler: github.com/libgdx/libgdx/wiki/

there are some basic default fonts in aframe framework, hopefully more to come, but no... there is no "comic sans" in the default set :p

#VR #typography #aframe #floss #font #3D #rendering

A-Painter and A-Frame explorer gltf2 export :

So now you can sculpt in VR and rework it in (potentially remote) blender in a snap ! ... and export again in your app/website
wow !

#Backup tool #CrashPlan announced they end support for home users, that's closed source for U :-P I moved to #Burp I'll never lose it #FLOSS
#FLOSS idea: Is there an #Android Audio-Player using #PopUp like #NewPipe? Would be great for Car Navigation… https://quitter.se/url/4380258

It's "How Can I Help?" Day today here at my place! Who has a #creativecommons art/music project, or #floss software project who could use a boost, a donation, a bravo, a review, or other assistance in my power? Who needs a pretty photograph from my collection? Who just needs a kind word? HOLLA
