For those in the US celebrating July 4th, consider declaring your independence from online tracking and the harms it brings (filter bubbles, discrimination, manipulation, etc.).

Google has a shady competition & data protection past. Now it wants to buy @Fitbit.

Add your voice and demand that the @EU_Commission blocks this deal!

Day 60 of the #100DaysToOffload Series:

Yesterday @kev wrote an article about how email is not broken. Rarely is he just so wrong.

I've seen lots of posts and opinions recently about how email is broken, mainly due to (I think) the rise of Hey.

Here are my thoughts...

RT @arvidkahl@twitter.com

Genius. They wrote a script to make a PDF look like it's printed, signed, and then scanned again. Because digital signatures are still not accepted in many places while a signed and scanned printout is.

This is hacking bureaucracy. I love it!

Hi All,

There will be no new Linux For Everyone content for the foreseeable. @killyourfm is currently unwell and we wish him a speedy recovery.

Jason may not respond to socials during this period so any DM's or mentions will be picked up when we can.

Thanks

@z428 Oh and I forgot to mention Plausible Analytics, who are new and getting their open source based business off the ground. Just a little over a week ago @markosaric announced they've just hit $1,500 MRR. He also posted some of his thoughts on open source based business on the Plausible blog: plausible.io/blog/open-source-

If #Google knew everything about you, they would’ve stopped listening to everything you say.

Look no further than your #email system for today’s #surveillancesaturday.

If you know that your #GMail & others are data-mined, is it entirely “on them” that your #privacy is undermined?

Be an active participant in your goal to remain private.

Avoid #surveillancecapitalism by choosing to make (sometimes difficult) decisions. Give your money to better companies with products that respect you more.

#introductions Hey everyone, I'm taking my first stab at this Fediverse thing. I am a developer interested in a variety of languages, particularly #scala, #typescript, #golang, #haskell, etc.

I have been using Linux as a daily driver for a few years now, currently using #gentoo.

I'm a huge fan of decentralization and self hosting. I'm currently working on a personal website with a blog attached @Zambyte and I'm working on DApps using the #algorand blockchain.
