- Your data is entirely under your control
- Paranoid about privacy, everything private by default
- No SPOF: don't rely on any single party (including yourself)
- Your data should be alive in 80 years, especially if you are
And (you guessed it!) is NOT #FOSS
You're only correct that that Golang is "not open source" in the in a very narrow sense: it's not an "OSI approved" open source license. There are many otherwise licenses in this category.
Facts don't care about your #FUDD.
@tomas @baldur Yeah, I'm feeling that valid (but possibly exaggerated) concerns about power dynamics in #FOSS / #FLOSS are being used in this piece as a means of justifying a sense that marginalized persons are entitled to having code written for them rather than for marginalized persons to produce code.
To all those wanting to have some #FOSS app listed in my repo (e.g. because they can't have it included with the official F-Droid repo for some reason):
My Updater now also can fetch APKs from GitLab tags.
Description on the GitLab repo for my repo (oops) updated accordingly: https://gitlab.com/IzzyOnDroid/repo (file your requests in its issue tracker, please).
I'm a one bag nomad. I've lived in 20+ cities in 10+ countries and don't plan to settle. ✈️🌎 My favourites: 🇯🇵 Japan where I climbed Mt Fuji and eat my favourite foods, 🇹🇭 Thailand where very nice people and my other favourite foods live. I hail from 🇨🇦 Canada.
Do you know that when you share your pics you also share so much more? #Metadata can contain the location where the picture was shot, the date and time of shooting, your phone model, aperture, exposure time, etc... Why sharing all this private info with the internetz and #surveillance capitalism when there's no need to?
Scrambled #Exif is a #FOSS app that removes metadata from your pics before sharing. With one click they're all gone.

Hi! I'm an artist from Australia, mostly making stuff online. I need lots of breaks to hang-out with my cat + check on things in the garden. I make games under the name 'Blueberry Soft'.
I will reorganise your files / records / cutlery / wiki / whatever if you let me :3
I get very excited about helping people, then half-way through realise I'm not actually being helpful. Sorry in advance!
Only 500 chars a toot, so maybe more next week. 😎
