#bountysource changed their ToS such that bounties that have been posted more than 2 years ago will be seized by them (probably to fund the blockchain company that bought bountysource a while back). The change will become active July 1. If you have any bounties on bountysource posted before June 30, 2018 you can ask to redeploy your bounty on a new issue once.

@microg will no longer advertise the use of bountysource for issue bounties. Please refrain from posting new bounties there.

These effects on privacy do not end in IL. The #Clearview database invades the lives of millions of people.

Please be vocal outside your personal bubbles on and offline. Help others know the truth about invasive surveillance.

Collapse OS now re-implemented in Forth 

Collapse OS is an attempt to implement a simple OS that can run on anything computer-ish in case civilisation collapses

Originally in assembler, the people around it discovered and then adopted Forth

The discussion around this topic is interesting

I'm not qualified in the slightest for this. But oooh. Sweet.

Don't.
Use.
#Zoom.
Just.
Don't.

“Free users for sure we don’t want to give that [end-to-end encryption] because we also want to work together with FBI, with local law enforcement in case some people use Zoom for a bad purpose” - Eric Yuan, CEO.

That probably isn't clear. What I'm thinking of is a single interface to (client side of) email, XMPP, Matrix, etc.
