Just heard this phrase and my mind got blown. Its true. Some projects are that old and migrated so well from SVN to Git that they have a clean and accurate history spanning 20 years, and I'm sure you could find some truly horrendous and/or nice stuff if you start digging deep in git blame. For swear words.
The age of digital archaeology is upon us.
"Just because there is now a multi-billion-dollar industry based on the abject betrayal of our privacy doesn’t mean the sociopaths who built it have any right whatsoever to continue getting away with it"
It's such a great feeling knowing that something I built is providing utility!
A bit of a reflection of my ongoing effort to protect family communication from prying eyes. A bit of an invitation to others trying to talk about #privacy

We need to defeat this bizzare cognative dissonance people face when they have to re-evaluate the place email holds in their mind. It's not some useless relic of the last generation to cast off in the course of chasing the shiny new.
- Built with open standards
- Fault tolerant
- Enjoys a wide variety of open-source clients & servers
- Has widely available implementations for almost every programming language
- Already being used for software development at scales greater than GitHub-style development has ever dreamed of
Screw that noise. Set aside your preconceptions and look at email for what it is. The things that make you "yuck" about email are more related to the bastardization of email *software* by corporate interests like Google and Microsoft, and have next to nothing to do with email itself.
I wanted to get my saved locations from my Garmin watch into a mapping app.
We should avoid the term 'user' for people that are on the #fediverse. It is impersonal.
Using the term 'people' as in people-of-the-fediverse also doesn't cut it. It is too general.
'Resident' as in fediverse-resident is possible, but also not descriptive enough (it needs 2 words to be clear).
Do we have single-word intuitive names to indicate our federated community and movement? Are there multiple terms, are they urban popular language yet?
I'd really like to know, so I can avoid 'user'.
I have an idea for a patreon like system for software devlopment.
Suppose a software takes $10,000 to develop.
Then you set a minimum amount like $100 per license.
Then once 100 people buy it, the price of the license reduces to $10,000 ÷ 101. The difference is credited to all the original buyers. So as more and more people buy it, the per license price keeps dropping and the differnce is credited to all buyers.
I'd love to see someone implement this idea. Boosts appreciated.
We're committed to make a sad 2020 for the open web less sad: While Mozilla reduces its workforce by one third, we plan to increase ours by one third. If you are on the #MozillaLifeboat, contact us! With our passion for #privacy and #opensource we build a better & Google-free web. https://tutanota.com/jobs/ 💪
Pretty surprised by the action of Ghost.org here, have always held them in high regard..
The Mozilla layoff is terrible - not only for the former workers, but also the web at large.
If we are concerned about the future of a more private & secure web, without a monopoly - we might want to double-down on our support of Mozilla to ensure that more people keep their jobs.
Let's work to oust any leadership without the vision we all need for a better web.
We are happy to announce that we have completed the calendar invites feature. 🥳 You can now invite anyone to an event that you created in your encrypted calendar - even people who are not using Tutanota (yet)! 😀
