Librem 5 @purism
Promise Delivery Chart
The French government switched to Matrix, the German government evaluates free, open and federated messaging solutions, Nextcloud Talk became a great Slack replacement, public authorities in Germany consider a mass exodus from Twitter & Co after EuGH ruling, next stop Mastodon... Seems like we have both, the (political) momentum and the technology to make 2020 a great year for the free & open internet!
#Matrix #XMPP #Nextcloud #Mastodon #Germany #France
Microsoft und Co. an Schulen? Das geht gar nicht. Warum erklärt der nachfolgende Kommentar. Leitet ihn bitte an Eltern, Schüler, Lehrer, Entscheidungsträger etc. weiter - es gilt die digitale Mündigkeit zu bewahren. 🧙♂️
Nutzt E-Mail, Messenger, das Fediverse etc. zur Verbreitung.
Vielen Dank! ❤️

Excellent article on link rot and ways to avoid losing online content. I'm happy to say that almost all of the sites and content I've created over the past 15 years are still alive, and I intend to keep it that way.
We promised to publish the hardware schematics when the #Librem5 shipped and we delivered: Hardware Schematics and X-ray Scans for Librem 5 Birch https://puri.sm/posts/a-different-kind-of-transparency/ #OpenHardware #Linux
Gall's law: A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked. A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be patched up to make it work. You have to start over with a working simple system.
It was an exciting week for the #Pursim team, shipping Librem 5s from the Birch batch to backers https://puri.sm/posts/librem-5-birch-shipping-announcement/ and reading your early impressions.
Your support and energy keeps us going!

Librem 5: Der Preis der Freiheit

I love this post:
"When we first approached hardware manufacturers almost two years ago with this project most of them instantly said “No, sorry, impossible, we can not help you.”. Others warned us, that it could never work, that it was too complicated, “the industry does not do that” and so forth.
And yet here we are, later than we wanted, but we are actually shipping first hardware! It is possible but it comes at a price." #Librem5
We are delighted to share that early yesterday we shipped the first #Librem5 Birch devices to backers https://puri.sm/posts/librem-5-birch-shipping-announcement/
