We have to do a project this year, for our final exam. As a theme, our group chose the advertising and sale of #Music in the internet age. None of us are musicians, but we do care about supporting them (or well, at least I do), so I think we made a good choice.
This won't be a big thing, mind you. It's just for school, not a published scientific paper or anything.
Still, if you know any good resources, I'd be happy to check them out. Comparisons between sales on different services vs CDs? Surveys of customers? Articles detailing why Spotify is bad? All are welcome.
And if not, I'd be very glad if you gave this a boost, too. Thank you!

This router is using a Banana Pi with a new open source operating system called Fengg. It's seems like a neat home router for a decent price.

Okay everyone at fosstodon, I'm thinking about starting a project, which will basically break down a (any) package manager, file by file, document every possible aspect of it, not just behavioural but also technical side of it. It's a long shot, but doable. I'd love to hear your thoughts about it.

Please boost so that I can get more inputs. Thank you all.

The developers of Signal are currently doing a user survey:

I told them that I really like the app but also that I would like:
a) Signal on @fdroidorg
b) a proper desktop client
c) no data stored in "secure enclaves"

Maybe you'd like to tell them, too?


If you're obsessively following the news like I am, now is a good time to distract yourself by submitting a talk to LCA!

We would like to better understand our @opensuse contributors and arm user base before taking any further steps. Please take the time to complete the following survey.

Here I am again with a new batch of #followfriday

@JF "a C/C++ developer" (he started InfiniTime for the PineTime)

@gamey "I plan to post about foss stuff here and since i just got a Pinephone thats probably what it will mostly be about for now"

@bleakgrey "Developer of Tootle, the Mastodon client for Linux"

@air "Queer gamedev in the UK"

@bull500 "Digital Artist 2D & 3D | Aeronautical Engineer "

Go check them out! As always le me know if you want me to remove you from the toot.

Hey folks: the Fosstodon CoC is always important, but it might be *especially* important today. A few quotes to remember:

* Fosstodon is *not* a free speech zone
* Fosstodon is *not* an advocacy space
* Do not be intentionally antagonistic
* Do not post about inflammatory, controversial subjects without a Content Warning.

Full CoC:

Be kind to each other out there, and generous with your use of Content Warnings!

PSA: @PINE64 @mobian users, please don't upgrade in the coming days, as there is a major transition going on.
More information:

A reminder to all to use content warnings to hide political toots ( particularly today). Many of us are not US-based and many others come here as a shelter from the bad sentiment on other social media platforms

Nice to see @postmarketOS has done a lot of progress on the #PinePhone over the last several days, including:

- much improved battery life and thermals thanks to mostly working suspend

- improved audio call quality

These are on the edge branch for now, but it's very encouraging to see.

Thanks to everybody involved.

I am currently looking for an old SHR (, best for one of the devices in order to have a shot at booting into old software on . I may have one somewhere on an old harddrive, but it would be great if someone could help me out!
