The Free Software Foundation is asking for suggestions for what its new priorities should be. You don't have to be a member, anyone can send a suggestion by email.
It would be great if we could get them to prioritise the Fediverse including Mastodon, PixelFed etc, you can find out more here:
They need suggestion emails by 8th January 2021.
I know FSF generates mixed feelings on here, but it would help get the Fediverse noticed if they promote it.
And with two days to spare Precursor is funded! Thanks everyone for contributing to this valuable project -> https://www.crowdsupply.com/sutajio-kosagi/precursor
"Do you want to join yet?" the Galactic Federation's envoy asked.
"Have you dropped your stupid demands yet?" their human counterpart said.
"Universal right to food, shelter, education, and healthcare? No."
"Then no, we don't want to join."
"Are you sure you've asked everyone?"

Tom Cooks is a cooking channel very much of the Fediverse. It takes a totally different approach to food preparation, looking at its roots with our cave-dwelling ancestors and how it developed from there onwards. You can follow at:
Here's Tom making flatbread:
Very cool -- https://teddit.net is a new privacy-friendly Reddit frontend, similar to Invidious / YouTube, Bibliogram / Instagram, and Nitter / Twitter.
Source code: https://codeberg.org/teddit/teddit
- All requests go through the backend, client never talks to Reddit
- Lightweight (teddit frontpage: ~30 HTTP requests with ~270 KB of data downloaded vs. Reddit frontpage: ~190 requests with ~24 MB)
You don't even have to register an account (unless you need persistent rooms). Just visit https://senfcall.de/en/ - klick on "start meeting", enter meeting name (password optional), press "start" enter your name and have fun senfing. The call-invite link you find at the top of the chat.
To people with money:
Don't forget to give donations to your favorite projects. Not talking about myself here, I already have a job. But some projets you use everyday would improve faster if they had enough to pay full time devs.
From small apps/softwares/libraries to bigger projects like GNOME, KDE, elementary OS, perhaps even firefox (not sure on this one) etc.
If you have some money, it's better to spend it here than paying an amazon prime account for example

#HedgeDoc isn't built by paid team. It's all done by people who enjoy working on something useful for the community. And when we can do that, you can do too.
Want to implement a feature? Check our development room on Matrix or open a PR on GitHub.
You think programming is boring? Check the community chat if someone needs help or the translation page to bring HedgeDoc to your native tongue.
All not for you? Maybe writing nonsense on Mastodon is more like your taste? Take on social media.😉 /sh
Another Linux app I find useful is Flatseal.
Allows you to manage permissions for individual apps including network access, geolocation, microphone/camera, and system files and directories. Easy and simple to use. Like on mobile devices.
In case you missed it, #CodiMD (my favourite collaborative tool for Markdown writing and code sharing) has been renamed to #HedgeDoc (with a cute new logo). You can find this beautiful, healthy #FLOSS project on the fediverse: @hedgedoc
One example of how good the team is: I submitted a feature request for a size picker to create tables, and a pull request was submitted... 2 days later: https://github.com/hedgedoc/react-client/issues/761 💚
And you can also find that bunch of helpful people on Matrix.

"We are perplexed why you humans keep overproducing," the alien said.
"Huh? We moved on from capitalism, we only produce what we need."
"You have more stories than any of you can ever consume."
"But not all that need to be heard, or that need to be told. Or are a joy to tell."
