Imagine this raining down on your neighborhood. (Some people didn't have to imagine, thanks to the IDF.)
This will be a paid short-term project producing FLOSS. DM or email email@example.com if you're interested.
Not an iOS dev? That's okay, boosts appreciated too! 🙂
Also a perfect way to poach those last on-the-fence users from WhatsApp, of course. Gotta have 'em all on one private server!
Another #Signal red flag: instead of addressing the shitcoin drama properly, they just reacted with an effective social media PR coup, which the multipliers in their customer base will like enough to ignore the bigger problems. Eddie Bernays would be proud.
It also never seizes to amaze me just how large Africa really is. Painfully obvious when flying across that continent, but easily forgotten when only looking at normal maps day in and day out.
One of the reasons the modern nation state has become ubiquitous is that organizing information and actions internationally is much more efficient with clearly defined regional geographic entities.
I'm thinking about organizing location bookmarks in #remotestorage folders (hierarchical tree structure), and using country ISO codes would be the easiest solution. But it wouldn't actually cover every location on Earth.
Anyone has ideas for a broad geo property that doesn't rely on nation states?
Biden is getting the band back together. The one that likes to organize violent coups, be caught in the act, and when asked about what their allied neighbors may think of a war on their borders just say "f*** the neighbors".
"Building back better".
TIL: Tesla Energy is now active in more than 40 countries around the globe, and has deployed storage for 6+ GWh at more than 1000 sites. And they don't just sell battery packs, or install solar panels, they also offer a whole variety of software, from grid management all the way to automated trading of produced energy.
Finally some good news about Spotify: their new paid podcasts come with private RSS feeds, so customers can use any podcast app of their choice to subscribe and listen to new episodes:
Very excited to announce that #NGI DAPSI will be funding user account data export and migration in #Snikket and #XMPP! This project will give people more control over their data and ensure they are never locked into a specific XMPP provider.
Remember when Biden said the U.S. would end support for the Saudi war against Yemen? Take a wild guess what actually happened.

Loving @cwebber presentation today. You act differently in your different communities. To some extent privacy isn't just individual, it's to protect different social norms from community to community. Social dynamics vary and the centralised, surveillance focused internet threatens those communities and their cohesity. Again it also comes down to different behaviours may be the norms for your community, but can harm your reputation elsewhere.
