If you're interested in getting started with the #IndieWeb this post should help you setup a profile.
Unfortunately, they officially support only very few ARM64-based boards. Yet, you can run these systems unmodified on a lot more boards - provided you manage to install them.
Want to know how to find out if your ARM64-board might be "unofficially supported"? Or how to master the installation? Then my new article is for you:

I highly recommend this documentary about the value of time (available in French and German):
@mntmn Do you know of someone working on liberating the MNT Reform's platform from this TX firmware blob required for HDMI output? If yes - any estimate regarding likelihood for success (in the near future)?
beta @mntmn reform has arrived: https://nitter.net/Skalk12/status/1270445543978930179
- there *are* 3D files of the pbp case available ("only" AutoCAD but still...)
- specs for the display *are* available, please look in the wiki
- like your machine, the pbp has M.2, sd and eMMC as well
- why does the pbp get a "no" for blobl-free boot? Mine boots up fine without blobs
- why is the price of the pbp not green?
Please be fair, do some basic research and fix these issues.
I made some progress in my attempt to build a powerful, energy-efficient and freedom-friendly ARM-based firewall/router.
Details and benchmarks here:
Installing and configuring operating systems on single-board computers can be painful when there is no nearby ethernet connection available. A pocket-router that provides wired internet access over an existing wireless network can help here.
I just posted an article where I discuss why I decided to build one myself using #openwrt and describe the particular steps conducted. Moreover, I also present measures regarding performance and power consumption.
There should be no barriers to life-saving knowledge. Thankfully publishers are doing the right thing and making COVID-19 research open access https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/03/embracing-open-science-medical-crisis-0
- a newly installed instance is "open for public" by default. Imho, this is just crazy from a legal pov.
- jitsi needs around 5 subsubdomains for its various subservices.
- setting up a "secured domain" seems complicated and did not work for me (yet).
Given these, it's hard for me to give an unrestricted recommendation for it.
@PINE64 Happy new year!
