I'm going to re-start posting on my blog (in spanish), but this time writing more about libre software, privacy and webdev. I just published: :fdroid: F-Droid, la alternativa a google play. blogandweb.com/3383

We just enabled #liberapay donations in all available currencies!

Previously we were only accepting USD or EUR. If you couldn't donate because of that you should be able to do that now.

This morning I quickly built an Android app that allows to handle Twitter and YouTube links[1] to transform them into #Nitter and #Invidious links. Then it delegates the action to another app of your device.

It's open source.

Project: framagit.org/tom79/nitterizeme

The app is ready to be published on #Fdroid but I will proceed to more tests. You can use the debug apk.

#Bolivia has the largest lithium deposits on Earth.

Evo Morales began nationalizing the lithium like he did with the natural gas before he was toppled in a US-backed coup.

This is not a “victory for democracy”. It’s an assault on a predominantly indigenous nation’s sovereignty.
