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

Managed hosting is when you own and run a site, but the hosting company does the behind-the-scenes tech stuff like installation and updates.

There's a new indie company called Spacebear offering #PixelFed and #PeerTube managed hosting:

app.spacebear.ee

You can follow them at @tklk

There's also a well-established company called Masto.host offering #Mastodon managed hosting:

masto.host

You can follow them at @mastohost

(Thank you to @Hau for the tip about Spacebear )

Centralized tech platforms are "handmaidens to authoritarianism"
- Carole Cadwalladr, who exposed the illegal facebook ads around #brexit

Too much power in the hands of just a few tech platforms threatens democracy! #decentralization

As from bluebirb:

To those who do not participate in Passover or Easter: Enjoy some pasta with some sauce. Accept The Flying Spaghetti Monster’s Noodly Appendage into your heart and mind. Then ye shall be joyous and free. R'Amen!!!

Remember to randomly tell people you care about that you love them.

Reading TechRights and yes the Linux Foundation is a problematic organization in a similar manner that W3C is. It's really just another corporate consortium unaccountable to Linux users or developers. The Free Software movement rode the corporate dragon quite successfully for a couple of decades, but now the contradictions in those alliances are showing. http://techrights.org/2019/03/30/what-happened-lf/

Hey, what do you think about the request from the newly updated uBlock Origin add on? "unlimited" sounds scary...
