Hello social.coop people,
I'm Alfonso, connecting from the Pyrenees, the mountains in the south of France.
Here in the Pyrenees, i've co-founded Lab Place, a maker and co-working space in a little village https://lab.place
I also take part in the international network Civicwise https://civicwise.org
I just installed the latest Postmarket OS (with Phosh) on a Pinephone and goodness they have come a long way.
The OS is basically usable. Which is amazing on such an underpowered device.
Also, convergence worked for me for the first time :) And yeah, I could easily use this with Helix Editor + git for development work on the go. (Keep in mind my daily dev machine is a 16-core desktop with 64GB RAM. So, no, it’s not the same experience. But is it usable? Heck yes.)
Just in case you didn't know:
#GIMP, #Krita @krita, #Inkscape @inkscape, #Scribus and many other great graphics tools are already available - free/libre to use, free to improve, free to share. Check them out! 💙

We know volunteering to help an open source project can feel overwhelming, even when you're interested. Well here's one for those with a web UX and layout skillset:
Owncast is going through a redesign and could use your help with opinions and feedback. We'd like a person or two to act as consultants in our chat to answer questions, you don't need to actively produce or _do_ anything. We need someone to ask: "Should this be blue? Is this ugly?" Could that be you?
I'd like to find more opportunities to share what Owncast is up to with people who would be interested in such things.
Do you know of any Podcasts, YouTube channels or blogs who would be interested in talking about independent, open source live streaming?
I'd love it if you could suggest Owncast as a topic to your favorite content creators!
