The Libre Music Challenge is a friendly competition happening every month, where partakers make a piece of music on a given theme or using a given open-source tool and enjoy the creativity and learning that ensues! After the submission deadline is up, everyone votes to pick a winner! (There's no prizes handed out other than the eternal glory as a LMC winner).


This month''s theme is: THE 80s Synthwave / Newwave.

:boost_ok: :ablobcatwave: Please boost this post if you would like the EFF to join the fediverse. :ablobcatbongo:

In a survey the EFF sent me, I suggested they create an account on the fediverse, so they can reach more supporters and support innovative free software that promotes interoperability among platforms, something they've advocated for in the past, too.

If you can boost this post, maybe I'll be able to show them that there are quite a few users who would like them here!

The EFF is the infamous nonprofit organisation that fights for privacy, government transparency, and digital freedom. Their fight is very important, and the EFF is very special to me. https://www.eff.org/about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_Frontier_Foundation

You can see some of their work here https://www.eff.org/work

In the meantime, you can follow @eff, which is an unofficial mirror of their Twitter.

#chatcontrol is an EU plan to spy in real time on *all* your communication, including encrypted messengers like Signal. Let me put it bluntly: If the state doesn't trust me, I will never trust the state. This is unacceptable. Period.

Kompjutorski haker, turska glumica, te hrvatski tajkun bi bili najzanimljiviji sugovornici na tih tjedan dana

Jeste li vidjeli ovaj listić iz vjeronauka za 8. osmi razred oko kojeg se u Kastvu digla frka? Ja biram prostitutku iz Berlina, hrvatskog tajkuna (mada oni ne putuju vlakom) i kompjuterskog hakera... A vi? 😂
