We need #diversity in @fsfe to move forward our work on #foss and freedom. Diversity is an indicator of and is indispensable for freedom. But how can we achieve that? We have to remove any and all barriers for speakers and activists to share their expertise and knowledge with the community. That means encouragement, financial support, childcare offers, a culture of being welcome. We have to bring voices not normally heard to our community. We need mentors and supporters, not heroes.
I'm trying to get better at barbell squats. I now do sets of 4 x 8 with 50kg. I find it, excuse my French, fucking hard.
What amazes me most though is that there are female people out there, with a similar frame, who walk around with that extra 50kgs on their body everyday. Not to fatshame or anything, I just find it impressive what the human body can endure.
I'm #childfree for multiple reasons. I refuse to bring more people into a world when:
- we're doing nothing about the climate crisis
- there's a literal genocide going on in Yemen
- workers still don't own the surplus value of their labor
- China's social credit system will probably come to the West
- women are still subhuman in most places on earth
- capital increasingly overrules democracy
Celebrating new life is hard. Sorry for the negativity. Hope you all enjoy your weekend.

There are some serious concerns with Firefox's plans to turn in DoH. I, for one, am not happy with all Firefox DNS traffic being sent to a US companies servers. See this article for more info:

Goodmorning #fediverse. Next time, let's all go for a run at 07:00 am together.
Mozilla has announced finalist for their #IRC replacement. http://exple.tive.org/blarg/2019/09/06/forward-motion/
I *really* hope they go with a free solution—hopefully community feedback will convince them of the importance of free software.
… which you'd think wouldn't be necessary, but…
@Gina we, a small group of floss contributors, just launched cloud68.co. Would love.to have our first review and comments on how we can improve 😊
So I'm thinking about creating a #FOSS series and am researching topics. Since we decided to go with on-prem servers, it's been a while since I looked into ethical hosting/VPS alternatives. Basically, if you're not using AWS/Azure/GCP servers, who are the ethical server providers you should turn to?
So far I have #Greenhost. Anyone else?
