If you want to leave GitHub due to their recent bad behavior but still need a presence there, you can absolutely do that.

What FOSS developers provide them is credibility. If you move your cool projects elsewhere and mirror them to Github with a pointer to the real repo, the message is clear: you're only on Github because you have to be.

Boycotting $BIG_COMPANY 95% of the time is almost as effective as boycotting it 100% of the time; this isn't an all-or-nothing deal.

Hey @cj wondering if you may be able to help with this?

@forgefed @TheMainOne

Finally writing another little update ^_^

Opening and closing tickets is implemented. Submitting patches / merge requests too.

Now implementing updates to MRs and merging MRs. Then updating the spec.

Huge thanks to @NGIZero for the funding!

I hope we can make a patch/MR federation demo sometime soon.


A reminder to all creative people:

If the RIAA's recent actions have reminded us of anything, it's that you cannot guarantee you have a copy of any of your work unless you have backups of it on your own system.

The 'cloud' is someone else's computer, and there is ample evidence that the someone else who owns that computer does not care at all about the hours of passion you've poured into things you make.

Act accordingly.

I don’t understand why white people don’t make slippers and shoes and boots with removable, washable, replaceable liners.

Native Americans figured that shit out in moccasins thousands of years ago.

Why haven't "buying clubs" become more common with internet?

For example, 100 cat owners could join together, approach different cat food providers and bargain a discount through joint-purchasing.

My guess is that the venture capital model makes us only think in terms of what works as a capitalist firm.

Ventures like buying clubs make more sense as or mutuals. The largest hardware store chain (Ace Hardware) and carpet flooring firm (CCA Global) in the US are both purchasing coops.

Thanks to @debian for their $10,000 contribution to the #roadmap to #PeerTube v3! <3 <3 <3

With this great recognition from the Debian Project, the €60,000 to fund live in PeerTube are almost reached. To contribute:

@dajbelshaw this may be interesting to @karen who's been thinking about a federated professional network

Esteemed Audience of

Is it a special kind of hackathon, a game, adventcalendar, Purim event, Zakat or 100 days, paintings?

“I am convinced that men hate each other because they fear each other. They fear each other because they don’t know each other, and they don’t know each other because they don’t communicate with each other, and they don’t communicate with each other because they are separated from each other”

― Martin Luther King, Jr.

So, there is some fuzz over at cryptoleftists about #CirclesUBI. ( )

The TL;DR is as follows:

It is implemented on top of another cryptocurrency with smart contracts. (Not really familiar with this, taking it as a cons.)
Uses a WoT for both issuance (must be verified by three existing members to join like #duniter) and settlement (payment can only be done by chaining trust, like #Ripplepay / #Rumble )
Seems to be a good starting point against sybil/fake ids attacks.

Since credit is limited by trust, there is an incentive to balance income and expenditure like a credit-based #LETS / #LocalExchangeTradingSystem plus the UBI means it could be non-deflationary and incentivize usage rather than savings as in facilitate economic transactions while being an #universaldividend token.
