I really need to get back into adding local business into open street map. There is like only one other person adding doing that in all it Long Beach.
@mwlucas several I have an old old email like that too! Years ago I emailed Marshall Kirk McKusick to get permission to have a BSD Beastie screen printed onto a shirt. I wore a 5x at the time and there weren't any available through the approved channels. He was totally cool with it, and it is one of my favorite emails. It was really the beginning of my interest in copyrights now that I think of it. Anyway thanks for reminding me of that :-)

I'm really happy to announce that the company I work for has just publicly opened a #Mastodon instance for all its 5000 employees.
This is the result of an initiative @moritzheiber and I have started a year ago and have pushed through with the help of many other colleagues.

What are your preferred alternatives to Google Drive's shared documents for writing/editing? Preferring ones which don't require accoutn/login!
Sounds like you're derailing. Actually people can multitask and just because people are working on trying to deal with the issues of hacker culture, doesn't mean they don't also care about whatever the 'smartphone battle' is. And ya also dealing with community problems is a lot more accessible of a battle than fighting Google. I do both, deal with the community and fight Google. Don't say that one of the things I do distracts me from the other that is what's derailing.
I'm late to the #introductions, but here it goes. I'm 30, she/her, from #Germany. I work as a environmental scientist at a university, pursuing a PhD degree. I need some #python #programming skills to do that.
I'm fairly into #crafts, especially #fiberarts like #knitting and #sewing.
I enjoy #boardgames a lot, I also started playing #shadowrun about a year ago.
#games like #citiesskylines or #civilization5 have quite a few hours on my steam account.
Plus: Trying to improve my #french ;)
