@andrewt I wish I could code. My little brother is the software guy, I'm the hardware guy. I can sloppy slap something together for my own use, or modify something that's #FOSS to my own needs, but starting from scratch isn't something I'm good at software wise.

how to go about confirming one's identity across platforms and protocols? what are the accepted standards for #FLOSS #FOSS software hackers?

Hey! #Outreachy applications for the next December-March round are now open! outreachy.org 🎉

They offer three month internships with free and open source projects — #FOSS. Interns are paid a 5,500 USD stipend and have access to a 500 USD travel allowance.

I can't recommend this program enough. It's such a rich and welcoming experience, in addition to being a great way to start working in tech.

Start your application today!

Worse, this is starting to look as #BrainWashing and cultural #Hegemony (as per Gramsci's definition) because people that point out these wide differences are treated like enemies of #FOSS instead as people who are just stating the (pretty evident) truth!

We should not be afraid of differences!
Once devs and users will realize how these are different they will have the freedom to choose.
And different groups can work together much better if they recognise and accept their differences!

Late Night Linux | Episode 46.

Good stuff from Nextcloud, KDE, and Fedora, politics in the kernel dev camp, a debate about contributing to FOSS, and more on LNL 46.

What Joe says in this episode, might piss a lot of people off (?)

Today I ordered a linux laptop completely free from proprietary software. I have now reached the point of no return. I am becoming a full blown nerd. 🖖

Fun fact: We took inspiration for Tutanota's new, Google-free push notification when @Gargron 's @Mastodon used SSE for push (they now use another push system). 👍 👏 It's exciting to build open source alternatives to liberate people from using data mining services. #foss #opensource Head over to @fdroidorg to read details on our new push implementation 👉 f-droid.org/en/2018/09/03/repl

The problem is that unfortunately the different is still real.

I say this as someone who did the same error, to think that finally #FreeSoftware and #OpenSource had become one thing, #FLOSS (or #FOSS).

But as you can see in those recent stories the #OSS way to handle issues is DEEPLY different from the #FS one.

I do not want to demonize open source, it's not #evil.

But I want #hackers to understand the deep difference so that they are not fooled...

Wir warnen davor, #Gesundheitsdaten auf Smartphones abzurufen, solange diese für #Staatstrojaner unsicher gehalten werden und die Software nicht quelloffen und reproduzierbar ist.

@vickysteeves Or money, money is good. 😂

I'm always amazed at big companies who use #FOSS & give nothing. I'm a freelancer & I manage a donation or 3 each year.

The first post on implementation of FediDict, my federated jargon definition service (e.g. an UrbanDictionary/Jargon File replacement) , is up on my blog!

As always, it was released early for Patreon patrons. Check out my Patreon if you want updates on this and other #coding #programming #foss #hacking #infosec and #hardware projects!

@lawremipsum, I just took a look at the #MSPsocial rules for voting on who to give your excess money to (docs.google.com/document/d/17k).

I can't decide if the feeling I'm experiencing is fascinated admiration or horrified fascination. You have a committee! With bylaws! For an instance with <200 users! Only a lawyer … :D

@kev @mike, maybe we should steal all this hard work for figuring out what #foss projects #fosstodon will contribute to

Hey 👋 it's easier to follow an account than a hashtag, so I created this one for Read.as.

Read.as is a long-form reader, similar to Feedly, built to be a peaceful place to read things from the fediverse :fediverse: -- particularly from long-form platforms like #Plume, @write_as, #Microblogpub, etc. In the future it'll also support RSS and curating what you read on your own profile.

It's built from scratch to be #FOSS, and is still very early in its development. But...

Hey 👋 it's easier to follow an account than a hashtag, so I created this one for Read.as.

Read.as is the second part of what I'm (@matt) trying to do with #ActivityPub. It's meant to be a long-form reader, similar to Feedly, that works with fediverse platforms sending out long-form content, like #Plume, #Microblogpub, @write_as, #Pleroma, etc.

It's built from scratch to be #FOSS, and is still very early in its development. But there's plenty to come!

I'm really starting to dig #SDR. I'm using this $25 USB dongle to decode the TPMS radios in my car tires that broadcast the pressure and temp.

Oh, and the sweet #FOSS tools available make it even better!

Day 12: Slithered through another day of #Python activities. Delivered a presentation on functions to a student at @HeatherJStannar, decided to organise these presentations in a repo. It's a work in progress! Now settling in to doing some #FOSS stuff. #100daysofcode

If you're interested in the repo for the slideshow presentations, I have them here: github.com/trev-dev/python-lea I built them and presented with Jupyter, but each module will have its own slides.html that you can use without a fancy python install.
