Although I'm not a new mastodon user I've just joined fosstodon.org

I'm an engineer in my late thirties currently living in Barcelona working mostly in and

My interests include , privacy advocacy and everything related to technology improving life for everybody. I've been using since mid 90s and I've been involved in local free software communities

I'm also a fan of pen and paper role-playing games, indie video games and literature.

Hello!

Hey everyone, a new build of my new mastodon app is now here, and it's better than ever!

You can get it over at: testflight.apple.com/join/hYFR

Also, to all our friends from India who've just joined, hello! This is the app you want for iOS. Aiming for it to be the gold standard. 💙

(Please boost to raise awareness, a new mastodon app is coming)

Donated to #GNOME.

It's obvious that to be a patent troll. one's moral compass has to already be greatly compromised, but going after free software is cartoonishly scummy behavior.

These trolls of course don't understand the whole ideological aspect of free software & that there are people from all over the world willing to chip in to defend it.

They think they're going against some software developers in a basement, in reality they're against a worldwide movement.

They're about to loose.

"Did it hurt?"

"Did what hurt?"

"When you fell from heaven."

"…It was the single most painful experience of my life. Tossed away like chaff, my wings… oh my beautiful wings! Burned away… gone in an instant! Hurtling toward this rock, we made mountains where we struck, my siblings and I.
Never to fly again, never to rise and soar, but left to walk and climb this rock forever. Every moment here is an agonizing reminder of what I've lost. Yes, it hurt, more than you can possibly imagine."

"Tell a scary story!"
"Once upon a time, leaders were vain and corrupt-"
"That's not fiction!"
"- and monsters only concerned with gold were burning-
"Still not fiction."
"- the world. And..."
"And?"
"And people lost hope and gave up."
"Oh."
"Mm."
"I'll make sure that's fiction!"

I just donated 25$ to GNOME to fight patent trolls. And so should you! It doesn’t happen offen that someone rejects the settlement and wants to go through courts to get it invalidated, including filing a counter claim so they can’t just drop it.

To all GNU project members past and present. I want to hear from you. Please email me.

What RMS, Torvalds and the like cost us 

Richard Stallman resigns as president of the Free Software Foundation

Our statement: fsfe.org/news/2019/news-201909

The fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom. Our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. RMS does not speak for these values.

I wrote about how we, F/LOSS lovers, need to drop toxic 'heroes' and need to either reform or move on from organizations that WON'T help v2.jacky.wtf/post/intersection

😩
i've defended rms' pedantry
i believe in free software
i believe copyleft is essential
i believe AGPL3 is the best license

i disagree with those who say "software freedom isn't important these days" or that ease of use is more important

but every time RMS makes the news he undermines the FSF and the free software movement 🤦‍♂️

i just e-mailed them to discontinue my recurring donation and told them why

gonna increase my donation to software freedom conservancy instead

I need help completing the information here for various desktop environments: danielfore.com/linuxisnotabout

In light of the recent events on this instance and the way I've seen everyone act (so far) in response to it, I've decided to double my Patreon contribution to show my support for the instance and the people that run it and try their best to make it a nice corner of the Fediverse.

And I think it has always been, and still is, a very nice corner of the Fediverse. People behave well enough here that we don't even *need* a CoC.

So thanks Kev, Mike, and the moderator team for the job you do here.

On Saturday I started practising sabre fencing. I think I found my sport thing after a while.
