Pinned toot

WTF?! My non-rooted phone had Maps pre-installed, but I only use for navigation etc.

Yesterday, I walked to a local restaurant, without using my phone, and had lunch there before walking back.

I never opened .

Today, I find a notification from Maps:
How was {restaurant name}?
Rate places to get smarter recommendations.

So it tracked and calculated where I ate without even opening my phone or the app.

All the #Meetup hate is justified..

Yet, I have didn’t see anyone talking about alternatives, whereas @Framasoft is literally building a free and open source alternative as we speak and they deserve every piece of attention and support for it possible.

Go ahead and take a look: joinmobilizon.org #mobilizon

We now live in an attention economy.

But why is attention valuable?

Because it allows for the influence of thought and behaviour and thus capital.

I wonder how long it'll be before smart phones are cheap enough to pragmatically be used as burner phones...

What if we replaced drug corporations with a public R&D #commons for non-proprietary medicines and other health products, and a diverse range of cooperative and community owned manufacturers and distributors?

Periodic reminder to move your free software projects out of Microsoft GitHub.

Here's my collection of public free software hosting sites.

Self-hosting a Gitea instance is also a good option if you have a server.

@cwebber @apconf

I'd also especially love to see @nextcloud share their conf videos on .

I mean, so much of your marketing is about the benefits of self hosted solutions over using the mega data silos. Sure I understand that the audience's are there... but it would be great to see leadership in supporting alternatives like , also, just like how you already do with . ♥️

Kudos to @cwebber and @apconf for putting the () videos online on .

Peertube already gives us a great alternative to , but it's problem is a lack of viewers, because of the lack of content uploaded to the platform (& being new).

That's why it's great to see help break the catch 22 by sharing their videos at:

conf.tube/accounts/apconf/vide

Here's hoping we see other conferences follow their lead! ( etc. I'm looking at you!)

I'm really happy that all the videos from #apconf are now available on #ConfTube, a #PeerTube instance dedicated to conference and community events: @apconf conf.tube/accounts/apconf/vide

This is the PineTime. A companion for your Linux smartphone, and new side-project of ours. More news coming in the future...

(If you have experience with FreeRTOS or mbed, and are interested, please get in touch!)

So where are all of the videos or where are they going to be? I'm pretty surprised to not see links popping left and right, but maybe I'm just following the wrong people... 😢

I'm sure there's a lovely PeerTube host out there willing to help with hosting (or a few that federate with each other, if we want to distribute the load)

If you have the footage and getting them edited etc is the issue @cwebber then hit me up.

Predictive Phone Typing
Rorschach Game!

1. Hit reply
2. Type the word "The"
3. Write, as hashtags, the first three words that your phone's keyboard guesses you'll type next.
4. Boost this toot to share the lulz.
5. Profit? (/crush capitalism in a global anarcho-Communist revolution. Your pick!)

I'll go first:

I'm happy with that collection! What words does your phone believe you're into? Share below! 💕
