Many years ago, in my hometown, a friend of mine was working as a waiter in a local café where the owner was gathering the tips to pay the staff wages.

"What a cheap scam" I was thinking.

No idea if he has become a billionaire

Thanks to the awesome work of @alexeymin, Discover now supports #apk (the Alpine Linux package manager)! Coming soon in a @postmarketOS edge upgrade near you, and also the upcoming v21.03 release!

It was obvious but just saying again, @kde @plasmamobile does not have any control over what you can or can not install on your phone. ❤️

That's irony at its best: Google is one of the gold sponsors of #FOSDEM, and less than a week before the conference begins, it removes #Element from the Play Store. Element is the most-used application for access to the #Matrix infrastructure that FOSDEM depends on.

The same repeating pattern; reading in the RSS feed of that progressive site about that interesting online conference about surveillance, civil rights and liberties, etc. "Find the link of the conference here". Check the link. Either a Facebook event or just a Zoom meeting...

Just another brick in the wall that is constructed in Greece lately:

#introduction #introductions Hey #fediverse I am finally trying to ditch corporate social media and privacy unfriendly apps. During this internal and very difficult process I have discovered the #decentralized terminology. Here I am to meet you all and why not, bring other folks over to the #fediverseSide! I like to use my social media to pick up information on a wide range of topics such as:
#politics #activism #privacy #security #digitalrights #foss #science #localnews #libreplanet #degoogled

I was reading in the news a post of a respectable progressive journalist. It was full of taunt and arrogance. Really weird.

A friend told me: it's not him, it's his facebook persona, he is good at it, such posts go viral.

I get your point, participate in the "public discourse", be at the places where people talk, share your opinion. But these platforms have been designed to capture attention and be addictive. To be listened to, you have to become another person. Is it worth it?

The twenty-seventh edition of my weekly collection of Linux Phone news (@PINE64 #PinePhone, @purism #Librem5 and such), #LinBits, is out!

Happy New Year!

Let us all join hands and make 2021 a wholesome and fruitful year.

Be nice to each other. Stay safe for each other. Spend more time with each other.

Switch to FOSS. Switch to small tech. Move away from surveillance capitalism.

"Join hands", well, you know what I mean.

I love you all. Happy New Year.

Happy new year to everyone in the community, especially to those who are going to spend this night without their family and friends. You are not alone!

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.

Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.

I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.

Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. ❤️ :pixelfed:
