Attended my first Anti-Google-Event @ #Google Campus today.

I generally liked it, but it wasn't radical enough. Kicking footballs against "Google" letters is nice but not enough. The speeches were good but not enough.

We must have alternative solutions ready and usable. We must offer Lineage/Replicant flashing workshops. We must teach people about Tor and Tails. We have to help advanced users with Libreboot/Coreboot. Everything starts with your own computing and *you* helping other people 🙂

I recently had someone contact me asking if my PGP key was safe to use because there appears to be a user id called "Dontuseee" on it -- it's actually a malicious user id that someone else added, not signed by key.

It prompted me to re-read this bug report that would be trivial to fix, but the sks keyserver devs *refuse* to make PGP simpler to to use at all, so instead they marked it wontfix.

Zemlin on Microsoft and 'us': 'We have all grown up'

Speak for yourself, Jim.

The real #gnu #linux community (users and developers) reject #microsoft

And for good reasons. They don't get paid by Microsoft like you do.

I wrote a prototype that analyzes natural language in English and German with spacy.io/ and translates it into SPARQL queries to Wikidata. It's incredibly primitive, but looks promising so far.

Doncs decidit a fer el meu núvol personal amb Maadix i tenir tot sincronitzat allà i si funciona bé deixar de banda els núvols de Apple i Google. I a més sembla que en un futur tindren salas de xat compatibles amb Riot... M'agrada (collons i a sobre també puc fer la meva web!)

Nice interview with Richard Stallman by Dr Diane Hamilton. It's not often that I can listen to him in a conversation with a good, professional interviewer that is letting him speak and express the nuances of his position.

After the Cambridge Analytica controversy, the number of users on the Diaspora* network almost doubled. 2 months later, most of the new users have left.


It's sad, because Diaspora* actually works - there are no obvious visible bugs.

So my question to all of you, given you're willing to use an alternative service like Mastodon:

What in Diaspora* do you find lacking? Why not use it?
