#DebConf18 videos are being published on https://meetings-archive.debian.net/pub/debian-meetings/2018/DebConf18/
more than half of the recorded talks are already available, and more are being worked on right now.
So... after 2.5 years of owning a Thinkpad T400, first librebooting, then gradually modifying the shit out of it, I have to say that an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU is still completely sufficient for everything I'm doing today.
Everything packaged for Debian still runs perfectly smooth. And yes, this includes all the games.
I'm saying this because I want to make a stand against planned obsolescence and new hardware craze. Your old machine is very likely still fine. Please use it a little bit longer 🙂
Android support on the Librem 5 is low on the list: @Purism intends to drive to a different approach. There is true interest from the community in coding native apps.
Any GNU/Linux app will be able to run on the Librem 5: the only issue will be the GUI. For GTK+ 3 based apps, @Purism offers a lib, called libhandy, with new GTK+ widgets to ease the transition. The long term goal is to get libhandy merged in GTK+ 4

"Why the web won't be nirvana"
Article from 1995 saying how the www won't take off.
I was going to run my own server but after reading their hosting page I was so charmed that I’m going to subscribe (if only to support their work):
Facebook and Twitter announced new #Ad disclosure efforts.
...but what if we all used a platform that had no ads? What if our platforms were fully free and open source and enabled users to inspect them?
We have the technology to do this: #FreedomBox.
Finding and reporting a few bugs in Debian packages that don't work with python3.7 yet.
Power is out, but only for my apartment it seems.
Blog post: Why ActivityPub is the future https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2018/06/why-activitypub-is-the-future/
"Mark’s manifesto isn’t about building a global community, it is about building a global colony – with himself as king and with his corporation and the Silicon Valley oligarchy as the court."
"Where Mark asks you to trust him to be a benevolent king, I say let us build a world without kings."
A very well-written article with a lot of quotable sentences.
