My girlfriend used to work in the food service industry. I work in IT. When someone talks about hosts and servers, we think of VERY different things.

Welcome to Lagos!

"For the sake of honour, sovereignty and integrity of the nation, let's sacrifice the honour, sovereignty and integrity of the people that constitute the nation."

This is the behaviour of Mr. Narendra Modi and his government. I don't even want to call it shameful. Because this compulsively sadistic, power-hungry, and irrational political force has gone beyond all of it, even beyond comprehension of shame.

@aseem Don't forget the direct support of small projects and developers.

I agree with your main point, though. We often do forget to support the things we use if we don't have it behind a pay wall.

We pay to Steam, Netflix, Amazon prime, Spotify. But not to Wikipedia, Archive.org, Librivox, Project Gutenberg, for our favourite Linux distro.

The huge asymmetry between corporate and community has not emerged naturally. It is a product of our choices of not supporting community oriented projects.

The short conveniences vs the long-term good. We always chose the former.

In face of surveillance capitalism, we must and must change.

Google banned LBRY Android from the Playstore without warning and for contrived reasons.

This video details their exact communications, reasoning, and hypocrisy.

We believe we are being targeted due to big creators fleeing YouTube for LBRY.

Please share 🙏

If Google does not want to listen to my explanations, I will not change the app for them.
The way they are acting is unfair and don't give any trust concerning next publications.
I prefer to spend my time to help people to switch on #FDroid for getting the app.

I love but it's really hard to stick with it. Linux does not work on my PC with driver, so I disable it from the start. Whenever I try to install non-free driver, it always breaks my system(except with pop-os, but not for long) 😓😓
