Does an #Instance like this exist?

100% #GreenEnergy

100% #FreeSoftware and no tracking

100% stance against #HateSpeech by strictly moderating #Nazis and such. #HateSpeechIsNotFreeSpeech

100% stance against instances that don't pick a side, but pick sidelines, by blocking instances that like #LibremOne don't moderate nazis.

Great to see that #CERN wants to become more independent and moves to #FreeSoftware. That's the right direction, but don't do it just for the costs, otherwise companies might trick you into the next vendor lock-in with just a lower price for proprietary software, Open Core or similar marketing tricks. https://home.cern/news/news/computing/microsoft-alternatives-project-malt #MAlt

Since 2002 dozens – maybe even hundreds – of people have devoted years of their life to making Blender open and free to use for everyone. This massive effort has made it a strong and exciting program where add-ons can become massively successful. You’re standing on the shoulders of giants!

This can only work if we create a level playing field for everyone. Nobody’s code is more important than another’s. Nobody cuts a corner of the Blender play field to claim it as their territory. Nobody will plant trees here where you can’t climb in or enjoy its fruits.

Blender is free, forever. https://code.blender.org/2019/06/blender-is-free-software/

Remember you can contribute to #FLOSS with zero coding skills… Here is one chance:

Design a small social card image like the one below so that the project looks nice when shared in social media etc.

https://github.com/rugk/mastodon-simplified-federation/issues/29
https://github.com/rugk/website-dark-mode-switcher/issues/6

Only a little creativity is needed. And can also get used to #Inkscape. Templates and examples are included.

I'm really happy to see freeCodeCamp switching away from Medium to Ghost:

https://www.freecodecamp.org/forum/t/we-just-moved-off-of-medium-and-onto-freecodecamp-news-heres-how-you-can-use-it/279929

I was running before I switched back to static websites. For people who prefer a lightweight blogging platform with a nice web interface, I highly recommend it.

You might also consider switching, given you have a medium blog:

To celebrate 10.000 views of Part 1 of my anti #GAFAM guide I rewrote the section on #InstantMessengers.

It now highlights #Riot / #Matrix, #Conversations and #DeltaChat as very privacy friendly. Do you agree?

https://write.privacytools.io/paulakreuzer/how-to-live-without-google-and-other-evil-tech-giants#InstantMessaging

I also added a Contact post to my blog recently including my Matrix and #Tutanota addresses, all my active #Fediverse profiles and #Discourse forums.

Political satirist Christine Prayon was awarded the 10,000 Euro Dieter Hildebrandt Prize of the City of #Munich and donated the prize money to the Free Software Foundation Europe. She used her thank-you speech to put the finger on one of Munich's sore spots and criticised Munich's switch back to proprietary systems.

"Freebait" is not Free Software.

Nothing which gets you trapped in proprietary silos gives you freedom.

"Freeware" has been around a long time. It isn't Free Software.

The more you know, the more you care.

#OpenSource is not even the same as #FreeSoftware

#CopyLeft


 
@bjoern I think #Huawei is a matter of Free Software and it's a matter of Free or Open Hardware, too. Governments and especially the European Union should invest more resources in #FreeSoftware and #OpenHardware. If users don't get updates etc. for political reasons, it becomes clear how much dependent the world is now on individual US manufacturers and their vendor lock-in. This can't be good in the long term.

Is #fedora really always free for anyone to use, modify, and distribute?

These are on fedora website. How can one say fedora is free for anyone to use and distribute? You have accepted US discriminatory law against Freedom Zero of FSF definition of #FreeSoftware and 5th part of OSI difinition of #OpenSource

Three conclusions to draw from #Google denying #Huawei access to software: (1) The #FSFE urges users to use Free Software operating systems and applications on their computing devices. (2) Governments and especially the European Union should invest more resources in #FreeSoftware to gain independence from large enterprises and other states. (3) The FSFE urges companies to use as much Free Software as possible in their supply chains. https://fsfe.org/news/2019/news-20190520-01.en.html #pmpc

According to a survey of over 30,000 developers, these are the top 25 people who will have the most influence in tech, and we're not surprised to find RMS, founder of the FSF, on the list. But please remember, we advocate #freesoftware, not open source!

More than two years ago, #Munich abandoned their strategy of developing an independent IT infrastructure built with #FreeSoftware. What happened in the meantime, not only in Munich but in public administrations in general? https://fsfe.org/news/2019/news-20190515-01.html #FreeSoftware #policy #pmpc #fsfe
