"I am the Youax. I speak for the Noobs. And I will dunk on any #floss project that does not look like last year's hit consumer app."
Seriously, diversity in interfaces is really important right now and using the "man of the people" argument to overgeneralize about FLOSS is problematic. It starts to sound like the conformity that lead us to these monopolies in the first place. "Easy to use" is a fine motivation but universalist design is not without peril. We need avant-garde software too!
Das Konferenzbuch 2018 kann man hier vorbestellen. Wenn genügend Vorbestellungen da sind wird es unter einer Freien Lizenz erscheinen. Du musst dich bis zum 29. Mai entscheiden.
Hmm. Der Dudenverlag leitet alle auf seiner Website nachgeschlagenen Wörter an Facebook - inklusive evtl. vorhandener FB-Cookies, so dass die Anfragen dort personenbezogen ausgewertet werden können.
@switchingsocial There has been an article on that in a German tech magazine just recently. Not so cool, basically.
It's really surprising to me that there are still no non-profit alternatives to Uber and Lyft.
I would love to see somebody start a non-profit org and make an open source app for ride sharing.
The Swiss NGO "Digitale Gesellschaft" offers two DNS resolvers with support for DNS-over-TLS/HTTPS:

@matrix Could you implement redirects to the new site?
The old links to the blog, i.e. https://matrix.org/blog/2018/10/27/this-week-in-matrix-2018-10-26/, are dead now.

@purism @Purism While I'm all for decentralisation and moving away from malicious corporate entities, I don't really like how it's made to seem as if every service on librem.one is something made by Purism. The technical specifications do say what protocol is being used but not the underlying software and I think that's an underhanded way to go about it.
At least say LibremSocial is Mastodon, LibremTunnel is PIA, LibremMail is any old mail server with tight GPG integration & K-9 Mail from Android, and that LibremFiles and Contacts will, I assume, be Nextcloud.
I really don't like people that come along, take a good open source project, rebrand it, and pass it off as their own. Transparency is a good thing and I don't really see any on the front page of https://librem.one
If you were operating this as a non-profit, that would one thing. It's an entirely different matter to be making money from free software without giving credit where credit is due.
Au fait, je ne sais pas si vous saviez... :)
