The most plausible solution is better technology education,

No, I don't think we shouldn't teach programming to everyone. We should teach people how computers actually work.

This New York Times privacy special is very interesting.

If you could throw a quick sub to my girlfriend’s channel on YouTube that would mean the world to her :)

Also RT this for signal boost please. Let’s help a creative person get started! Thank you!

An actual, real, major government (France) is using end to end encrypted, non-proprietary software (Matrix), and... oof.

I try not to say this because, hey, open source, if something is wrong I should fix it myself, but...

Matrix *isn't* good. We're blowing our chance to make government more secure and transparent through FOSS software. What government will want to adopt FOSS after hearing things like this?

Help us test OnionShare 2.1 with this test release! github.com/micahflee/onionshar

2.1 contains a new feature called the auto-start timer, a.k.a “Dead Man’s Switch”. With this feature, you can now schedule a share.

It’s the counterpart to the auto-stop timer. (And they can be used together).

Please try it out!

I'm thinking about doing a live streaming coding session for Akira.
Who wants to see some code and actual progress?

Result of my new set up. I thought the Pop stuff was an eyesore.

@codesections Setting up any new linux distro is always going to be a pain, and I didn't really think it through.

We've reached a point where we'd like to start #hiring developers to work on the #WriteFreely roadmap 💻 :writefreely2:

This would be remote, contract-based work for now, with a chance to go full-time later in the year (assuming all continues going well). You'd be creating free / open source software.

I'll have more details soon, but especially if you're a #Go / #Golang developer and want to work on a growing #fediverse project, I'd love to hear from you!

To be fair, GNOME web is really nice and I'm really enjoying the better nvidia driver support.

I'm going to be honest this was a big mistake after going through it. Way too much time to set up too little.

I think I've actually used Juno since it released. About 6 months, makes sense.

I think I'll switch distros from elementary to Pop!_OS until 5.1 is released. I really like elementary jus I feel like something different for a little bit 😜

@brandon I walk a couple miles to a coffee shop when it's warm enough out.

The light exercise with the caffine works almost every time.

How do you get into "the zone"?

We all have that process through which we can reach our best thinking, the one we hold sacred. Or maybe you're still experimenting, what are you on now? What works for you?

Boost for more diverse answers :)

@alexbuzzbee it's the best OS to catch malware. If you love porn ads opening out of nowhere in new browser tabs violently, then Windows is your thing.
