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

#Yunohost is truly a beautiful gift. The more I use it, the more I'm amazed by the community running it with passion.

@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

The final vote on the EU #CopyrightDirective directive is this week! Don’t let link taxes and mandatory filters destroy the Internet. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/03/european-copyright-directive-what-it-and-why-has-it-drawn-more-controversy-any
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!
