Looks it up.

I'm still waiting BTW, for Software Heritage to provide a way for a git repo not on github to be archived.

I've been waiting for years.

Currently the only way I have to get code into their archive is to get the code into Debian.

i do not like the current internet term for works of creative output: ''content''

it is a term that denotes commodification and capitalist marketing

please stop devaluing the cultural importance of people's creative work by referring to it as ''content''

do you or do i know someone who i could consult regarding thermal design of Reform?

The witch hunt continues:

My first thought: this is exactly what they (those who attacked rms) wanted. Divide and conquer.

My second thought: how has Stallman's behavior over the years undermined the empowerment of all computer users?

My last thought: why didn't the people making the statement explicitly state the behaviour(s) they believe to undermine?

Bank robbers used to burn debt documentation and it's absolutely wild to me that you could just do that in the 1920-30s.

In 1950, the ultra-wealthy paid 70% of their income in taxes.

In 2018, for the first time, they paid less than every other social group—23%.

Terrific animation in tomorrow's New York Times. Thanks @DLeonhardt@twitter.com @stuartathompson@twitter.com!

A worker owned taxi #coop in Southend has grown from 6 to 70 drivers.

They repaid all their investors and returned £3000 to their members last year. The same year Uber left the area after failing to compete with them.

We need this in every town and city!

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

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

I never opened #GoogleMaps.

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.

Definitely time for #Pinephone / #LibreM

#privacy #Android
