Take a look!

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
We have a first "review" of the #Purism #Librem5 Birch:
#Librem5 backers in the Birch batch have started sharing unboxing photos https://azdle.net/2019/11/librem-5-unboxing/ (attached CC-BY 2.0) videos https://peertube.co.uk/videos/watch/55eece8c-2d6c-4da3-8c8c-895217d66e2a and positive early impressions https://www.reddit.com/r/Purism/comments/e2mqgb/i_have_my_librem_5_ama/ thank you to all our supporters for your patience and excitement 😀
@fsf Lists the Librem 5 in its Giving Guide https://www.fsf.org/blogs/community/ethical-tech-giving-guide-freedom-is-the-gift-that-keeps-on-giving The Purism Librem 5 cell phone is another exciting addition to the Giving Guide this year: we're giving it a tentative recommendation because the company has publicly committed to doing the right things for prioritizing user freedom and privacy. We also have evaluated and endorsed the operating system that the Librem 5 will run, the fully free PureOS, and the phone is designed for maximum privacy, security, and user freedom.
The first Librem 5's are starting to arrive 😀 This is the first batch that is shipping to customers - the Birch batch.
Below, linked from reddit, is the first public report that I know of where a customer received his/her Librem 5.
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/

Today’s near-constant encroachments on religious liberty challenge the very notion of justice, says @ccpecknold https://catholicherald.co.uk/commentandblogs/2019/11/26/as-secularism-advances-law-itself-is-in-the-dock/ …

God so loved
that He gave His Son Jesus
Who lived, suffered and died
that we could have freedom
His blood shed to forgive
all the sins we committed
Hi life was a ransom for
the guilt of our sins
Thank You our Father
this gift we've been given
Jesus our Savior
The Light of the world
Send us to seek
the lost souls among men
To find those
wandering in darkness

This is an interesting video by Bryan Lunduke. I am not on Twitter now, though I was once upon a time.
One point he makes, that people you know, who are nice, kind people, jumps onto Twitter and then acts like hateful jerks, is kind of a strange phenomena. Bryan also talks about how addictive Twitter, and #Facebook, are.
