I'll start, I'm Ojibwe. Raised away from the tribe, but am a full member now as an adult.

(If not indigenous, please still share, I wanna reach others)

An official report for the Dutch government concluded:

“(Microsoft Office) systematically collects data on a large scale ... covertly, without informing people. … Microsoft does not offer any choice with regard to the amount of data, or possibility to switch off the collection.”

Don't use Microsoft Office, use LibreOffice instead 👍

It's free, open and you can get it here:

libreoffice.org

There are very simple reasons why our system is careening towards disaster:

One is that our system all about getting ahead, standing out, winning, out-competing.
The best way to do that, like any self help book will tell you, is to focus on that goal, your success, above all else.

And so cooperation, compassion, empathy become hindrances.

The higher you climb in a hierarchy the more effectively this pressure will reward those who only care about their success and weed out those who have any other priorities.

So of course the people at the top do not care about the common good or the health of our planet.

For anyone who wants high-quality, open-source, self-hostable event coordination software, check out gath.io (repo at github.com/lowercasename/gathi).

It doesn't require an account, does everything with email and link-capability security, and autodeletes events 2 days after they're over, and it looks really beautiful.

No need to use Facebook for this anymore!

Are you using Let's Encrypt?

If so you might be interested in acme-tiny. It is a 200 lines of code client to handle the installation and renewal of your LE SSL certs.

There is a one-time requirement to convert the account_key from JWK to PEM. After that everything can be automated through scripts & cron.

I like that acme-tiny is: standalone, small & so easy to review. Installable via Pip, apt-get and probably other package managers.

"Nobody talks about the real reason to use Tabs over Spaces"

This is a pretty compelling reason. Esp. if you are writing open source code.

Photos show overcrowding at US migrant centres

"Jarring photos of facilities in the Rio Grande show 51 female migrants held in a cell made for 40 men, and 71 males held in a cell built for 41 women."

Sounds like a concentration camp to me.

"On 10 April, astrophysicists announced that they had captured the 1st ever image of a #blackhole.

No headlines mentioned that the image would have been impossible without open-source software: #Matplotlib, a #Python library for graphing data.

Just 5 days later, the NSF rejected a grant to support that ecosystem, saying that the software lacked sufficient impact.

#opensource is widely acknowledged as crucially important in science, yet it is funded non-sustainably."
