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''

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

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
