👀 … if just 1,000 people renew/become a new Sustainer (at the very reasonable level of just $120/year), we meet the match target — that will instantly double all your donations!

If you didn't donate yet this season ,help us bring and other violators to compliance, and support projects as well!

The new German coalition treaty: “We stipulate open standards for public IT projects. Procurement for software development will usually commissioned as #opensource the corresponding software is made public as a matter of principle.”

We welcome that the new government wants to focus on the use of Free Software. We will now closely observe and accompany the concrete implementation.

a brief moment of exasperation 

If you’re only organising it on Facebook then it’s not actually a public event

A great congratulations to Patricia Aas for this award.
I fully concur that too much focus is on "leaders" (actually bosses, the real leaders seldom have a "manager" title) and not focus on people who create, do the work and tacle the actual problems.
Incidentally Patricia is both, you only need to watch one of her talks to realise that.

I got zero responses last time I hit up the Fediverse offering paid creative work, but I'm not giving up!

Some #Owncast features being worked on require iconography. And while we could use an icon library or something like Fiverr it'd be nice to work with an illustrator on the Fediverse who focuses on icons to have something that is custom.

This is paid work, so please boost and tell your friends.

Feel free to message me on the fediverse or email me: gabek@real-ity.com

The Google things coming out doesn't seem to paint a much nicer picture...

Had been hoping that would have been as quick to upload this year as earlier years, but apparently being hybrid they want to keep some sort of premium for the paying online attendees.

I've done my best to summarize the recent Google antitrust complaint by Texas and 16 other states. It's *extremely* bad for Google and Facebook.

"google has a secret deal with facebook called "Jedi Blue" that they knew was so illegal that it has a whole section describing how they'll cover for each other if anyone finds out
- google appears to have a team called gTrade that is wholly dedicated to ad market manipulation"
