In short: better don't use this for anything sensitive and don't make other people install the Zoom app - ever.

Many proprietary software companies are currently using the extended homeoffice situation of many employees to offer lock-in solutions gratis or even labelling them as "free". But take care to build on Free Software. Else your solution today might turn into a burden tomorrow:

Did you know that Mozilla is collecting a public domain dataset of annotated speech? This will help develop open source voice-controlled programs. The Common Voice project still needs volunteers both to donate their voice, and to validate other people's recordings.

#CommonVoice

I just validated a bunch of recordings (English and German) and am happy to report that there are now quite a few female speakers donating.

I feel like reminding people that we've just passed the 1 year anniversary of a Fox News host telling the world he doesn't wash his hands because germs don't exist since he can't see them.

For the past 18 months or so, I've had the privilege of participating in a pilot of Rocket.Chat by GC - Government Canada. Their IT folk are taking their Digital Nations ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_ ) ambitions seriously... Interestingly, their thousands of users *prefer* Rocket.Chat over Slack & MSFT Teams.

Given that we're in a time where toilet paper people are going "oh my goodness I have to buy up all the toilet paper before SOMEONE ELSE buys it!" I think it's time we had a full and frank discussion about bidets, bum sprayers and other more effective ways of keeping yourself clean.

The truth is that of all the most common methods around to clean your bum, toilet paper is the most expensive, uncomfortable, unhygienic and environmentally unfriendly. Alternatives follow in next toot.

@cypnk

I want to live in a world where "what if the internet goes down" is like "what if the freeway is closed". We should still be able to network with our families, neighbors, and communities, and I think it's a mistake to depend on the Internet for those things.

Working on SSB has been really eye-opening to see how much we can do with software that's DIY / P2P / E2E / friend2friend, and I'm really optimistic that we can build and organize small friendly networks that never truly go down. ❤
