I’d like to help others make better free and open source software so I’m making this standing offer: I’ll review a project's README for free. If you're interested, follow the link below. If you know of someone who might be interested, send the link to them.

within earshot: Do you write a newsletter (yes, I'd be interested in reading it)? Do you use a service, and which one? Have you used (or quit) Substack? Is there a FOSS-friendly newsletter service? Your answer may be blog fodder, but doesn't have to be. Thx!

: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.

Working hard on @linuxjournal piece. Topic: Setting up a POD. Let me know if you have experience with this to share, or questions I should answer.

Linux Journal accepted 2 story ideas recently. Which of these would you like to see first: How to use Joplin, an open-source Evernote-replacement app (joplin.cozic.net/), or an exploration of whether it's too soon for most folks to adopt Tim Berners-Lee's Solid "personal online datasource" project (solid.inrupt.com/)
