#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!

A quiet week: Conference talks, #MaemoLeste Update, App Showcases and more!
#LinuxPhones #rC3

Can you see the numbers in their silhouettes?
Here is my illustration to wish the end of the pandemic for 2021. Let's hope it will happen.
Happy New Year!

Is your school forcing you to use Zoom, Skype, or other proprietary videoconferencing software to learn or teach? We want to help you stand up for your rights! Sign and share our petition, and tell us about your school:

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!

Pixelfed will be a year old in a few days.

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:

Calindori does not offer online calendar synchronization: how to synchronize your Nextcloud calendar with Calindori

A nice visualization tool for Convolutional Neural Networks. I really like how clearly it illustrates the convolution and pooling steps.

The main tracks of the rc3 conference have been added to Kongress, the conference companion application of KDE.

Kongress can be found in various PinePhone distributions that offer @plasmamobile and in the flaptpak nightlies kdeapps repository for ARM and x84_64.

It is also available in the F-Droid repository of KDE.

Many thanks to the rc3 infodesk team for their support.

Hey everybody, I am preparing a talk about mobile Linux in 2020, #PinePhone, #Librem5, GUIs, distributions, mainline support etc. Anything I must not miss? #boostsappreciated

You might have read that Angelfish now has a built-in ad blocker. Today I wrote down how the implementation was done, since it involves Rust code in a C++ project:

Plasma Mobile news for Nov./Dec.: Across the board improvements to notifications and apps, a theme that increases speed while reducing RAM usage, chat with the NeoChat app and surf the web with a stabler Angelfish that includes a new ad-blocker. #opensource #kde

In the mid-nineties, I was given an Encarta encyclopedia CR-ROM.

The first thing they told me: "it also contains videos".

My very first search: "Maradona, Hand of God".

Create a class derived from Patriarchy - probably the oldest implementation of the abstract class Hierarchy - and Property; the nasty femicide method is now available.

Microsoft has spoken!

As previously stated, your IPs do not qualify for mitigation at this time. I do apologize, but I am unable to provide any details about this situation since we do not have the liberty to discuss the nature of the block.

We regret that we are unable to provide any additional information or assistance at this time.

Best regards, Deliverability Support
😡 So after yet another try, we ended up with the same template reply 😠

Dalton Durst of @ubports fame held a great talk on improving Linux phone battery life at #LAS2020. If you can only watch one video this week, make it this one:

(Yes, I am going to publish video content this week, but it won't be as important. Sadly I am not aware of any YouTube alternatives hosting this video currently.)
