FOSS has been my repentance for years of writing amoral software for companies. I wondered if I would feel better about my career if it was at risk the whole time. I wrote a little bit about that here: https://sagegerard.com/regulate-me.html
Are there companies/organizations doing consulting/advocating #Foss to scientists/academia?
Sounds too niche 🤔
This is one of my major arguments in favor of selfhosting:
Honestly, it sounds like a great service, probably useful to many!
But it's a new monthly paid service which you need to pay separately for even if you already have #nordvpn.
Add Netflix, Spotify, YT whatever… There seems no end to the subscription loop. Every new service is a new subscription. I can't afford all that.
If you have content on YouTube and you HAVEN'T considered alternatives like PeerTube, now is the time. Seriously, right now.

In an attempt to discover new music in the long run I've decided to keep a casual Record of the Week list on my blog. After seeing another FOSS blog post a pancake recipe I realised who needs these arbitrary boundaries.

I joined the #TrustWallet chat room and almost immediately I got a message from a "support representative", the scammer who asked me for a mnemonic phrase (see screenshots).
Police state much!?
In #NewIndia even "political comments" are illegal and immediately pounced upon by the Police while neo-n@zi handles on BirdSite quietly laugh and post their next inflammatory tweet w/ total impunity!!
Here's a totally innocuous tweet by Rana Ayyub and Amethi Police's immediate response to it!!
Wah Modiji Wah!!👏😹🙏
Ow now I understand…
Welcome to all the new folks, great to see actual change and movement in response to corporate incompetence!
