In light of the recent events on this instance and the way I've seen everyone act (so far) in response to it, I've decided to double my Patreon contribution to show my support for the instance and the people that run it and try their best to make it a nice corner of the Fediverse.

And I think it has always been, and still is, a very nice corner of the Fediverse. People behave well enough here that we don't even *need* a CoC.

So thanks Kev, Mike, and the moderator team for the job you do here.

15 years ago, EFF's @doctorow told Microsoft:

1. That DRM systems don't work

2. That DRM systems are bad for society

3. That DRM systems are bad for business

4. That DRM systems are bad for artists

5. That DRM is a bad business-move

He was right.

devs are asking for feedback on what to do in the future with Gitea. It's become feature-complete enough for the team to actually use Gitea in-house and they're looking towards the horizon.

Contribute your suggestions here: github.com/go-gitea/gitea/issu

They haven't fully made the move yet, but this is preparations for the future.

Evgeny Morozov: « Socialize the Data Centres ! » newleftreview.org/issues/II91/ (an oldie that I've found only now, but which is still terribly relevant. Surprising, right?)

Yesterday I checked (with NoScript) the websites of the EU parties coalitions. Might this be an element to choose whom to vote? 😉

Good morning Europe! 🇪🇺 Don't forge to vote. Vote for freedom, peace, openness and diversity... it's about our future and the future of our children. #Europe #EUelections2019

Remember that I was weaving a basket and had a tiny tomato plant in a can?

I put a lettuce from the garden in the basket and gave both things to a friend as a present for her birthday 😊

Some years ago I decided that I'll always produce all the presents I give. Since then I've drawn, played songs, baked cakes, knitted socks and grown vegetables for my friends and family. Some of them started to do the same and now we have a beautiful tradition 💜

Yesterday Christine Prayon was awarded the Dieter-Hildebrandt-Prize of the City of #Munich and used the moment to criticise their switch back to proprietary systems.
She donated the prize money to the #FSFE to support #FreeSoftware and "our future" <3
