This week we're using current events to think through the larger structures of governance and leadership within the FOSS world and how founder's syndrome effects communities that are inherently based on freedom

FSF, RMS 

I've had some thoughts on the current situation. Too much for the character limit here, though.

@djsundog This set of music you're playing. Is it from a collection? It seems like such a familiar set, but I can't place it.

:boost_ok: :ablobcatwave: Please boost this post if you would like the EFF to join the fediverse. :ablobcatbongo:

In a survey the EFF sent me, I suggested they create an account on the fediverse, so they can reach more supporters and support innovative free software that promotes interoperability among platforms, something they've advocated for in the past, too.

If you can boost this post, maybe I'll be able to show them that there are quite a few users who would like them here!

The EFF is the infamous nonprofit organisation that fights for privacy, government transparency, and digital freedom. Their fight is very important, and the EFF is very special to me. https://www.eff.org/about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_Frontier_Foundation

You can see some of their work here https://www.eff.org/work

In the meantime, you can follow @eff, which is an unofficial mirror of their Twitter.

First #bike ride of the season. Thankfully, there wasn't a whole lot of snow, but there was a little to remind me that winter is still not over. #mastobikes #rideon #morristown #newjersey

@mwlucas no glasses, but from the angle of the glasses pic, because I'm saucy and I vote outside the box.

we don't actually have the rule of law in America, it's all a misunderstanding that started with a transcription error. We're actually governed by the rule o' flaw, which states that if there's a fucked up way to do something, that's how it will be done

@djsundog I haven't listened to this much in ages, and it's fantastic. Thanks.

FOSDEM is too damn big. Too many talks at too many times covering too many topics that I'm too interested in :notlikemiya:

@leo Did the survey, there were no spaces for the Fediverse on it for social media. I would have selected if it were. (I put "use every day", but none of the offered networks selected.)

I set up a pretty awesome internet audio stream of over 140,000 MOD files; that's over 309 days worth of continuously streaming MOD music from 1987-1995.

It's funny how these days people on Mastodon call GNU Social a niche application. Back in Identica/StatusNet days this was the #fediverse, all of it. #getoffmylawn #duffer
