@furkachi @seachaint @eloquence Try using the terms "cooperative technology" or "cooperative software" with people unfamiliar with FOSS. IME they'll understand it quickly without needing to explain much if anything. And there's no need to explain what source code is.

@seachaint @eloquence @furkachi I think we need a new vocabulary that isn't a sell out to capitalists and also isn't associated with Stallman's pedantry, misogyny, and other problematic behavior.

#WhereIsMarinaOvsyannikova

The editor of Rossiya 1, who protested live on-air with a "No War" banner, has not been heard from since. Her lawyer apparently is not able to contact her either.

She needs all the global attention she can get right now.

Based on the new law in Russia, for her action Marina can be charged with an offense that carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.
