An interesting read on monetizing content in /#libre networks by creator @eliotberriot:

eliotberriot.com/blog/2018/05/

Very relevant to the growth of projects like , , , , and possibly even / / .

Personally, I just want to set a monthly budget to donate to (possibly on Liberapay, or possibly in each app) and have it split *automatically* based on how much I watch/listen(/read?) each creator.

Has anyone here tried both and Talk? I'm curious which provide higher quality, more reliable video calls?

Yes I'm aware that relies on having your own server (or a friends) unlike Wire. What I'm really interested in though is finding the most reliable, privacy friendly alternative for my family (including low tech family members). Right now we're using Wire, which has a really nice interface... but call reliability leaves a lot to be desired.

« A recently leaked Facebook document indicated that the company had been touting to advertisers its ability to determine teens’ emotional state based on their on-site behavior, and even to pinpoint “moments when young people need a confidence boost.” Facebook acknowledged that the document was real, but denied that it offers “tools to target people based on their emotional state.” »

Hey @mobilizon peeps!

Can you talk more (either here or in a blog post) about what you mean by "advanced mapping" in your final funding goal of the campaign? ( joinmobilizon.org/en/ )

#Yunohost is truly a beautiful gift. The more I use it, the more I'm amazed by the community running it with passion. But there's something I can't understand: why hosting all your intelligence, home repo and all apps repos, on Microsoft servers when you promote self-hosting guys? I imagine it's hard work ahead but this situation is undermining the whole purpose. I'm sure the whole community would feel better after that :) @aleks @bram

@enkiv2 I feel like the current situation is the worst of all possible worlds—where we're essentially just all carrying around disposable subsidized supercomputers that we don't have control over but that big corporations can use to track us, pester us, and temporarily offload their "compute" onto when it's convenient for them

I have been experiencing an inverse Dunning-Kruger effect over the last few years. I have realized that literally everyone is better than me at something, and so I am much better off collaborating with them than trying to work on my own.

More than 100.000 people took to the streets in 50 cities in Germany to protest against Uploadfilters and for an updated copyright-regime. It’s incredible, these are the biggest protests for an open internet ever! Stop #artikel13 in the European Parliament!
