@TBF I've watched the beginning of it, indeed very interesting.

Thanks for the link, will take a look.

I'm 3 chapters in, it reads pretty well, not really the sort of book I usually read but I haven't been bored yet.

Dear Fediverse: Best self-hosted FOSS combining social bookmarking & document storing ? My next step in my gradual journey away from big tech is a long-overdue Evernote replacement.

Interesting take on how to visualize and read news! Will follow with great interest!

Want to find your way from A to B?

You should try:

I've used it a couple of times today, and it was great.

* Uses OpenStreetMap data
* Service provided by HeiGIT
* Doesn't spy on you
* Maps look great
* Effective routes
* Share with friends
* Add your own tracks
* Export to GPX plus others
* Elevation profile

You can also go to C, D, E and many more. 😉

Hi fosstodon! Newish here, looking for some good oss projects that might be looking for contributors, to continue improving my dev skills. Coding practice feels like running on a treadmill and work is work (love my job, but variety is nice 😁)

Any suggestions?

@socnet.supes.com will not be blocking #gab when it federates. We embrace free speech in all its forms. If you dont like what someone says you are welcome not to listen to them. It is NOT your right to silence the views of those who dont agree with you!

So let's see if I got this straight, Trump is a corrupt politician with a corporatist agenda in bed with huge companies. So to get the power back from huge corporations we need a huge corporation to meddle with elections. You now so that a country with a BNP of a european country don't do it or what? Maybe media companies got "screwed over" because they've been screwing people over for decades?

"What happened to my JavaScript phone?" by Garann Means youtube.com/watch?v=14wIbWGyaK

Great talk. You could also call this "What happened to my open-source/hackable phone?" Maybe someday the smartphone market will stabilize to the point where the geeks can take it back.

I'd like to see an UI that allowsone of these coupled with cheap VR glasses and a gamepad gloves to be used for development.

Basically a glorified shell interface for 360 degree display.

Used in conjunction with VPSs.

Clever UI solutions could make this effective development machine for developing markets?

Email has many flaws, but it's the last, strongest part of the non-centralised Internet we have left. We should promote and support it for that reason.
