Over the better part of a year, through much pain, effort, and determination, I've got almost everyone I text regularly to use .

But now that I want to use @delta , I fear I've used the last bit of patience my people have and, well, there's no way they're gonna switch again.

What are the CLI/TUI applications that spark joy for you?

For me a nicely customized tmux, tut fediverse client (so I can talk to you lovely people), amfora (for gemini), profanity (xmpp), newsboat and tui_launcher (because who doesn't want touchscreen buttons in their terminal).

I am working on my presentation to the EU. I've spent a lot of time this weekend thinking about how I want to frame things.

I have a new title, which I think is appropriate: "Decentralized Networked Communities as Essential Infrastructure".

Thanks for all the Gempub feedback and help so far (especially @jk and @bortzmeyer), Gempub 1.0.0 is almost ready I think: oppen.digital/memex/gempub/ I have a little checking to do around the language and charset optional metadata (included mainly so implementations can supply language hints to screen readers), if anyone has any additional recommendations get them to me in the next couple of days and we'll make this 1.0.0 spec final. #gemini #gempub

EFF opposes digital proof of COVID vaccination as a condition of going about our daily lives. They’re not “vaccine passports” to speed our way back to normal. They’re “vaccine bouncers” that will scrutinize us at doorways and unfairly turn many of us away. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/04/no-d
