You sometimes hear people say Linux (and by extension Open Source) "won" because of how ubiquitous it is in Android phones and IoT devices.

My personal #mastodon experience still suffers from crossposts from #twitter, with user names that don't make sense in the #fediverse.

I can unfollow crossposter's accounts, but I don't want to unfollow everyone who boosts a twitter crosspost.

Please, #fediverse, let's boost the fediverse, not twitter. If we want to share a good tweet, let's treat it like any other URL from the web.

@klaatu Thank you for #404
Truly the appropriate way to commemorate that episode.

Questionable cryptocurrency integration - check.
So, when is Zoom buying Signal?

@djsundog All this Boston is bringing back memories. I have Third Stage either on vinyl, or one of the first few CDs I ever bought.

This is just a feeler for now, but would people be interested in helping organize a Free Culture conference online?

If so, could you drop me a line?

No blizzard, but there was some snow while I was out running errands this morning.

I have the motorcycle out of storage, and the summer tires on the car. I apologize for the inevitable upcoming blizzard.

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.
