"Where is the freedom if you use Free Software but proprietary cloud services?"
@nextcloud can compete with proprietary data silos like O365, Google, Dropbox, iCloud, because they are standing on the shoulders of giants and can use all of the fantastic #FOSS innovations: With Free Software they are more then #Nextcloud. They are a big #community and together we can compete with these companies.

I expect this will not be enforceable (IANAL, etc), so long as it can be argued that transmission of data - any data - from one electronic device to another is "prior art" for the purpose of this case.
Don't waste your time, efforts, and money on patents, people. You may argue that you "spent so much in R&D on the invention," which you likely would not have had to if you shared research and built upon eachothers' research.
But hey, that's just me.
Patents seem to be, more often than not, a waste of time, and pointless generator of stress.
Today it's "Only we have the right to control getting photos off of a camera wirelessly!!"
Do you help run a federated or decentralised service in Europe -- or know someone who does? Please pass this link on. It's the application to meet politicians to discuss how the EU's copyright filters (Article 13/17) will be implemented. I worry about a backroom deal struck between Facebook/Google that excludes the next generation of open Net services: https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/news/organisation-stakeholder-dialogue-application-article-17-directive-copyright-digital-single .. Please speak up!
Don’t get trapped by your office suite! Some software vendors are pushing users towards online subscription models – but LibreOffice is different. It's free, it doesn't require registration or yearly payments, and it gives you control over your documents: https://blog.documentfoundation.org/blog/2019/08/27/dont-get-trapped-by-your-office-suite/
Just finished revisiting a Ubuntu ISO customisation script I collaborated on a long time ago... Needed a custom ISO for a workshop...
It can now take a customisation script to auto-run during the process for a repeatable build, and I tested it against Ubuntu MATE 18.04
It still needs quite a bit of cleanup though.... maybe I'll properly revisit it during my holiday...
Une fois n'est pas coutume, je viens de publier un billet de blog. Oui, je sais, à cette heure-ci. Mais j'avais envie de le publier depuis un petit moment maintenant !

Shameless plug / reannounce. It was hard getting a new venue, and I'm not sure I'm done hunting yet... our previous meetups exceeded attendance expectations... and the capacity of the wee room we had...
A bad idea: Nextcloud signs public letter, opposing German plan to force decryption of chat https://nextcloud.com/blog/a-bad-idea-nextcloud-signs-public-letter-opposing-german-plan-to-force-decryption-of-chat/ #nextcloud #community #blog
...can we not formally name updatable items "MoM"? I can hear the frat-quips coming a mile off....
(it may say something about me that I notice this but in my defense.... to prevent security breaches, think like a hacker ; to prevent bad puns ruining your brand, think like a muppet...)
Linuxy person, bash scripter, occasionally writes minetest mods. Likes cheesy fantasy/isekai anime. Is in fact a cat in most respects.
