Remember our toot about Nextcloud synchronisation? 🎉 Seems we have a winner!
🔄 With the merging of https://github.com/AntennaPod/AntennaPod/pull/5243#issuecomment-937046643 it will be possible to sync AntennaPod with a gPodder 'server' in your own Nextcloud instance.
Will be available in AntennaPod 2.5!
What should really be worrying you (and policymakers, if only they carried the gene that expresses the ability to have a clue) is that we are effectively limited in choice to two trillion-dollar US corporations for the everyday technology that has unfiltered access to our most intimate and personal thoughts, the power to mediate our reality, determine what we can and cannot say, bound our agency, and redefine the boundaries of personhood itself in the digital network age. Who needs an army, eh?
At the end of the day, every little thing helps, but this is going to take a damn sight more than metal straws and EVs. Global-scale energy production, logistics, transportation, forest and land management are all MASSIVE issues that need to be fixed, amongst others. These problems are bigger than individuals and need global cooperation. I am sick and tired of watching major world players do absolutely nothing, as they would apparently rather line their pockets than be even remotely responsible.
Today is a good day to be angry. There’s no better time to get angry. Some of the damage is done, but there’s still a lot we can, should and must do to slow climate change. Those who are most responsible need to be held accountable for their part and replaced, by any means necessary, with people who have the vision and willpower to do the right thing. We’re watching our planet crumble in front of us on a daily basis. This can’t wait until tomorrow or next week. Big problems need solving TODAY.
Today I am angry. Furious, even. It doesn’t matter how many alarm bells ring about climate change or environmental destruction. The people in corporate and government power structures have, for too long, prioritised profits and shareholder value over stopping their destructive practices. They have ignored scientists who have warned us all FOR DECADES about the catastrophic effects of their business models. Individuals have been left with the insurmountable task of trying to saving the planet.
Well, it took a while but my petition to keep strong encryption without backdoors legal in th EU is now open for supporters!

What is honesty worth to you?
This year I decided that I'll spend 60€ per year on @fdroidorg, because it's the honest appstore for me. They build the apps themselves, making sure, no hidden trackers are included. And they provide a list of so-called "anti-features" at the bottom of the description of each app that warns you about potential problems.
This takes away all "Is this a surveilence app?"-questions when browsing for apps. It's awesome, thank you.
