More Philosophy than FOSS
Interesting question. You might get some insight by considering how *natural intelligence* it's handled.
The human genome, and many discoveries related to it, are largely open source.
Our #openscience dataset from live human brain cells, which contains electrophysiological, morphological & transcriptomic properties gathered from individual cells, is publicly available to accelerate #neuroscience research worldwide. Access via
#introductions My first toot!
I'm a C++ developer, currently studying & working in the area of computational physics and gpgpu programming. Been a user for many years, but finally this year decided to give a go. Also very excited for PinePhone later this year!
Now let's figure out this thing (you can see I already found the emoticons...).
The first iteration of the #retribute app is now officially ready 🎉
It's a web application that connect to your Mastodon account(s) and suggest you creators to tip based on your activity.
If you enjoy the concept or have some feedback, please let me know!
You can also find more about the app and how it works on the about page: https://app.retribute.me/about
I'm feeling great! Thanks for reaching out. Learning a lot from this community already.
Hi all, what would you use for an online form? I'm going to send out a request for English language editors.
I can code something myself, but if there is something out there that is #FOSS and privacy conscious I'd like to use that group.
This would essentially be a Google forms or survey alternative.
I am using Mastodon and Fosstodon since a few weeks. I used to rely on a proprietary platform and so far I really enjoy Fosstodon (thanks for it).
I am working on the Elisa music player as part of the KDE project.
I am using FOSS and KDE and Debian since 2004 and a PowerPC laptop.
#Framadate is a free open alternative to Doodle:
Like Doodle, Framadate lets you make quick, simple calendars and polls for finding out the opinions of your friends or colleagues without needing to register.
Unlike Doodle, Framadate respects privacy and doesn't show ads or track you.
El Árbol del Tule is a tree growing in Oaxaca state, Mexico, and it has the stoutest trunk of any tree in the world. Its a 35 metre tall Montezuma cypress, and its main trunk has a circumference of over 42 metres, even larger than any known giant sequoia.
It also goes by the Nahuatl name of Ahuehuete, meaning "Old man of the water". According to the local Zapotec people, it was planted 1400 years ago by a priest of Ehecatl, the Aztec wind god, named Pecocha.
Will do! Thank you for organizing this list.
New to mastodon... just learned about it and it seems like an amazing project.
It'll probably take me a while to get used to the platform 😅
I'm self-educated in tech (networking, programming, security) and have been looking to contribute to some OSS projects for a while. Hoping to contribute to the cause, and to maybe switch from my current career as a digital artist into development full-time
Hi I'm Dave,
I have been floating around mastodon for a year. I'm a bit of a tinkerer so I have tried to start my own instance but it wasnt my thing.
I have a degree in Archaeology and ancient Semitic languages. I worked with at risk kids and teens for the past 10 years. Absolutely loved it but got burned out emotionally. Currently a stay at home dad.
Working on my Certified Openstack Admin and Hyperledger Admin certs. Passionate about opensource implementations in non profits
The Openwords markup language represents human language learning problems
Openwords webapp reads those problems.
Openwords is looking for a partnering university to collaboratively build lessons. We are currently being tested in Jiangsu province, China at a k12.
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
