I don't think anyone grasps how much decommissioned hardware is intentionally *destroyed* after just a few years due to contractual obligations preventing used gear from entering the second hand market and thus lowering demand

The very act of using Facebook makes them money. Your behaviour, messages, emoji reactions, etc. are monetized, and sold to the highest bidder. The only way to stop facebook is to stop using it completely. No fake accounts or anything.

@loke @boilingsteam It's funny, because the real inspiration for many of the GNOME post-2.x era designs was webOS—which also inspired macOS/iOS, Android, and Windows

This. Cars are tools. They all get you from point A to point B, and if you respect speed limits, they all do in the same exact time. Getting into debt to buy an expensive car because it's pretty or powerful is the biggest economic trap people fall into.

@LinusTech@twitter.com All cars have four wheels.... and are all pretty much the same. 🤷‍♂️

Offer for all those frustrated with open source or shy and need problems fixed or features added 

Hey, so if you want to use open source but find its problems too much, have errors or need certain features a project doesn't have but others whether than be closed or open source do please feel free to reach out to me and I'll go find a way to submit an issue or issues for you. Because open source is only good if we all work together and add or fix things others need or have problems with, not if we only selfishly only get our own problems fixed or get features only we want to see added.

Heads up! #Microsoft is on track to ban all commercial activity by #FOSS projects on Microsoft Store in about a week! This is even worse than their (eventually repealed) 2011 ban on #copyleft for their app store! 😡️ We demand rollback of this new policy: sfconservancy.org/blog/2022/ju

Can anyone explain the relation between @conservancy and @fsf to me? Is there any? Is the Conservancy the better/newer FSF? Should I support one or both?

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

We're happy to announce that we just started to work on three new interdependent online resources: the Damaged Earth Catalog, the Permacomputing wiki, and the permacomputing workshop series!

Damaged Earth Catalog

A growing online catalog of the different terms in circulation, used by communities of practice, in relation to computing and network infrastructure informed by ecological ethics, degrowth, resilience, repair, and minimalism. Currently developed by @l03s as part of her PhD research.

Permacomputing wiki

A new wiki about permacomputing that aims to expose its principles, present and discuss the concepts and jargon required to engage with permacomputing, and maintain a repository of related projects. Currently facilitated by @viznut and @320x200 open for contributors!
