Like India, the USA will ban Tiktok to protect the #digitalsovereignty & #privacy of Americans. A great move!

I’m currently rewriting #Lufi’s frontend from scratch (using the mockup on framagit.org/fiat-tux/hat-soft), so if a designer wants to contribute to a free software which is already used (not widely, but by a good number of users) and wants to take advantage of the fact that I’m redoing all the UI from scratch, I welcome goodwill with pleasure!

NB: I'm starting to work on the mockup, but I don't mind using a different design, not at all!

A spaceship landed, and an alien emerged.
"Greetings," it said, "we invite you to join the Federation of Sentient Species."
"You are people. But also, you do a wondrous thing that noone else does."
