An excellent reason to promote open source in schools.

From DebianEdu wiki:

"Why consider it?

It is Free software: not only in price but also in the way schools are allowed to use it. This is ethically important to an educational environment as it should avoid being an arena where piracy is accepted or encouraged but a place that promotes the making and sharing of knowledge. This project provides user-friendly licenses that gives rights not responsibilities. "

I'm back home from a business trip where I had to use tracking apps all week. I switched the ROM on my phone for the trip, and now I'm back to my clean ROM without google or tracking apps

Women's clothes designers need to start embracing practicality, it's idiotic that most women's clothes don't have pockets, or if they do they're not functional and only there for appearance.

Interesting. Only 3 people out of around 100 in the #FOSDEM #Community devroom have seen the documentary "Revolution OS". Underscores my recent concerns that current #OpenSource people aren't very familiar with the movement's collective history.

Dropping the little man off at his mom's for the weekend after spending almost two full weeks with him. I think tinkering on Linux is in order to cheer me up!

3800 words for #cosmicvoyage today, and 10,200 for the weekend overall. My buffer for Voortrekker is four updates deep again, and I’m feeling better again about where the plot is going - I’m starting to see a way for it to come out as it needs to.

#AmWriting solarpunk space opera among friends at cosmic.voyage - everything we’re doing is #FreeFiction, come and see!

Hello everyone. I'm new here, and love open source.

I am moving towards -hosting everything, and this week I got running on a single board computer.

On the mobile side, I use Lineage OS without any Google services.

Excited to learn from this community.
