Threema plant im Gegensatz zu Signal übrigens kein Krypto-Bezahlsystem.

"Nein, wir arbeiten nicht an einem entsprechenden Feature, und mit Threema wird es auch in Zukunft nicht möglich sein, Zahlungen zu tätigen – aus gutem Grund."

Und: "Unserer Ansicht nach ist sicheres Messaging daher nicht mit Zahlungsabwicklungen vereinbar."

Sehr vernünftig. 👍

On programming being "easy" 

Programming *can* be rewarding, but it's not easy.
Programming is only easy as far as cooking is easy. If you like cooking, cooking is easy. But you quickly realize how difficult actually preparing a meal "at scale" is.
Honestly, you don't have to code. You don't even need to want to code. You're absolutely not missing out by not coding.
Building a shed for yourself can be a fun 3 weekends. Building sheds "professionally" not so much.
All I'm trying to say is don't worry about it. You don't need to code. Do something happier and more fun instead if you want to!

We have been warned that a free version of #Fedilab has been published on GPlay.

We don't own it and we didn't build that version. If you want to use the app for free, you should only download it from #Fdroid which builds apps from sources.

: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.

"Police are warning students and universities not to access Sci-Hub, an "illegal website" that allows users to download scientific research papers normally locked behind expensive subscriptions."

Very bad indeed. That name again: Sci-Hub. Remember it so you can avoid it. Ahem.

I have unlimited respect for people who have the courage and energy to keep leading change, who work on things that are not mainstream.

Be it monitoring political figures, making sure a government respects the law, fighting for social rights, protecting employees from an employer, providing software or services that frees others... you are heroes and what you do matters.

Thank you for caring about others.

Many scripts I've written run stable in production. Services are running because I have read texts and docs, installed servers and maintained software and hardware but I still feel I'm not an expert at anything.

Maybe because the more I know about a subject, the more I realise how much more I could know. And that will always be more than I already know.

We don't look back at how much we've already learned, but look forward at how big the mountain still is and always will be.

I would like to make the 15th February to the official #LoveYourAdmin day on the #Fediverse.
Its like a really good day to tell them how great their work is and help out with the bills.

Because, without them, we all wouldn't be here!

Parteien, Rivalität 

Es nervt mich tierisch wie viel Energie von Parteien und deren Mitgliedern aufgewendet wird, sich über andere Parteien aufzuregen. Sowohl bei interner Kommunikation, als auch bei öffentlichen Statements. Und das bereits auf allerunterster politischer Ebene.
Nach meinem Empfinden ist das auch bei allen Parteien ähnlich stark ausgeprägt.
Mich persönlich schreckt das vor politischer Arbeit ab.
Schade um die verschwendete Energie und Zeit ist es sowieso.

A boy asked his Bitcoin-investing dad for $10.00 worth of #Bitcoin currency.

Dad: $9.67? What do you need $10.32 for?
