But free software is a political project.

Software, broadly speaking, is a political project, and it’s one that has come to govern human existence. So far it’s done so mostly without the consent of the governed, and it operates to an intolerable degree in the interests of concentrated wealth and unaccountable power.

Computation is everywhere. Less and less of it is subject to the understanding or control of its individual users. Or, for that matter, to any democratic representation or governance. Systems that define our jobs and social lives are managed by a technocratic class beholden to megacorporations and billionaires. These systems' workings are opaque, their maintenance is an unrelenting nightmare, and everyone involved is fundamentally compromised.

@unfa All the cool stuff you can do with ImageMagick you can do as well on Android/LineageOS if you use it in Termux. Magick with images without the need for blackboxed apps. ;)

The new FSFE promo stickers have arrived! \o/


I plan to use them to spread the word about @Free Software Foundation Europe's campaigns at Hactivity IT Security Festival 2019 (and other local meetings if there will be leftovers).

I always forget to measure the popularity of the stickers...
So now I list here my current sticker distribution that can be compared to the one I will have after the conference:

sticker type arrived leftover total
I <3 Free Software (pink) 19 4 23
I <3 Free Software (red?) 18 3 21
100 Freedoms of Free software (black) 19 0 19
100 Freedoms of Free software (orange) 19 0 19
There is NO CLOUD, just... (white) 10 1 11
There is NO CLOUD, just... (blue) 23 2 25
We cannot read your documents 12 0 12
FSFE logo sticker 3 3 6
Public Money, Public Code (Logo) 12 0 12
Public Money, Public Code (Slogan) 12 0 12
My method of spreading stickers is really simple: I put them next to other promo stickers on tables in the halls at various meetings, let people to take what they like, then collect back the leftovers at the end of the day because I prefer not to waste any of the precious stickers. ;-)

You can also help spreading #FSFE's message.
The various promo materials are available from: https://fsfe.org/contribute/spreadtheword.en.html
They are #free of charge, but #donation is welcomed.

Wenn ich dein #opensource projekt noch nicht gemalt habe, habe ich es entweder noch nicht gesehn bisher, Noch keine zeit gehabt, es zu malen, oder du hast mir dein projekt noch nicht vorgestellt. Lass es mich wissen. Lieben gruss,

If I haven't painted your open source project yet, I either haven't seen it yet, haven't had time to paint it yet, or you haven't introduced me to your project yet.

Let me know. Love greetings,

I'm dreaming of a life in #OpenSource

 
Just found this opensource.com article about Greenpeace becoming an 'open source' organisation. Quite ironic, since a few months ago I met one of their principal IT managers, who openly mocked our efforts to use #foss and #opensource IT in-house. Greenpeace relies 100% on Google's Gsuite. Any comparison with fair trade coffee was met with a "yeah but this is easier, we just don't care about Google's dubious side."

Suche gerade einen Alternative zu #Slack, um eine paar Laute dazu zu bewegen, dort weg zu gehen. Bislang kenn ich #Mattermost und #RocketChat. Welches ist als Slack-Alternative besser? Was gibt es sonst noch?

Eben bin ich noch über #Zulip gestolpert, dass ich bislang gar nicht kannte. Het jemand Erfahrung damit?

Und gibt es einigermaßen günstige Hoster dafür?
#chat, #communication, #opensource,

Has anyone tested Tok Messenger?

Secure e2e, Distributed p2p, Anonymous, No Censorship, Open Source

https://www.tok.life

Privacy and security of Tok Tok was born with the sole mission of making our communication easier via modern technology. We assume that you would use Tok to share personal or special moments with extreme privacy, so we adopt peer-to-peer communication, end-to-end encryption in our application, which ensure your information with absolute privacy.

Do not require any Phone number
Phone number and Email address is not required to generate a Tok account, making sure that your personal information is not traceable through a real-name phone or email.

Invisible IP
Tok hidden all IP addresses through #onion #routing #encryption technology thus you will communicate with your friends via multiple routes so that no one except youself has access to your IP address, ensuring the privacy of the communication

Automatic message encryption
Your message is automaticly end-to-end encrypted when you send it to your friend via Tok. Many communication apps can only encrypt information, but Tok's end-to-end encryption technology ensures that only you and the recipient can read the information. End-to-end encryption technology locks information with special security keys, and only you and the recipient of the information will have the security keys to unlock and read the information. All information is automatically end-to-end encrypted, any more special setting to ensure the security of the information is unnecessary, and the world is free to communicate.

Private ownership of personal information
Tok insist that your information only belongs to you, so Tok’s peer-to-peer communication has no central server and thus can not store any of your information, After end-to-end encryption, any third party, including the Tok’s engineers, can't read the content of the information at all. Only you are the owner of your information, and the only authentication of ownership is your secret key. Please be sure to keep your key yourself and do not give it to anyone else.

‪Ratet mal, womit unsere Arbeitsgruppenserver seit dieser Woche laufen…‬

‪Wir danken den Menschen bei 😘 @debian! (Foto: Acracia;cc:by-sa).‬

‪Wusstet ihr übrigens, dass gemeinnützige Einrichtungen ihre Gemeinnützigkeit riskieren, wenn sie an Opensource-Projekte spenden? Wir haben es prüfen lassen. Skurril, oder?!? 🤦‍♀️‬
‪Da muss der Gesetzgeber ran: #OpenSource ist gemeinnützig, das sollte die Abgabenordnung anerkennen!

If your #opensource project uses something like "curl/wget <URL> | sudo bash" to perform the #installation, consider fixing this. Tim Serong explains why this is a very bad idea and how it can be fixed : https://tserong.github.io/sudo-wget/

Software Freedom Day 2019


Termin heute (21.09.2019) in #Berlin: Lehrter Straße 53, 10557 Berlin, 14 bis 18 Uhr
http://wiki.softwarefreedomday.org/2019/Germany/Berlin/SFD%20Berlin

Wir, die Community rund um die Freie Software, feiert heute den Software Freedom Day. In Berlin wollen wir uns dazu in den Räumen des IN-Berlin (die werden u.a. auch von der BeLUG genutzt) treffen um zu feiern, Vorträgen lauschen und uns Austauschen. Natürlich sind auch alle anderen Interessierten Menschen willkommen, die gerade zum erstem Mal von GNU/Linux als Alternative zu Windows hören.

I worked on both corporate open-source software and real free software and there's a world of difference between the two. Makes me cringe every time someone says open-source where free software is more appropriate.

I reserve my use of the word open-source for software made by corporations for which the source code is available, but no attention has been paid to respect the freedom of its users or the rights of the developers who worked on it.

This is something I didn't talk about yet, but you can expect /e/OS on
@PINE64 #Pinebook in a near future.

Then will probably have a version for Olimex @olimex laptops, and then /e/OS for #Pinephone

Open Source in Schleswig-Holstein


Bild/Foto

Unser #CIO hier in Schleswig-Holstein ist ein alter Hacker, der im Fediverse sogar mal mit einer eigenen #Friendica -Instanz am Start war. Hach.

Der Landtag hat ihn beauftragt, den Einsatz von Open Source im Land voranzutreiben. Heute hat er in einem Vortrag erzählt, dass die Landesverwaltung komplett auf #LibreOffice umgetellt.

Ich finde das ja cool. Aber ich kenne auch das Beharrungsvermögen des Menschen und von Organisationen (mir fällt da beispielsweise das Außenministerium ein). Hoffen wir das Beste!

#Hardware #OpenSource #Videocard #Arm #FPGA #Xilinx - ZZ9000 for #Amiga Batch 2 in Preorder


ZZ9000 is the successor to the VA2000 Amiga graphics card. But it can do more than just graphics: based on the Xilinx ZYNQ XC7Z020 chip, it features not only a powerful 7-series FPGA, but also 2 ARM Cortex-A9 cores and DDR3 memory.
  • RTG: Up to 1920x1080 FHD screen resolution at 8bit 256-colors "Chunky", 16bit or 32bit color depths
    Enhanced VA2000CX Amiga native video passthrough functionality with AGA support (scandoubler with interlace flicker-fixer)
    • Dual 666MHz ARM Cortex A9 coprocessors to offload computing tasks like JPEG, MP3 decoding and graphics acceleration
    • 1GB DDR3 RAM
    • Ethernet interface: Get your Amiga online
    • SD Card interface (for firmware updates, not currently usable from AmigaOS)
    • For Amiga 2000, 3000 and 4000 (Zorro 2 and 3 compatible)
    • Drivers, firmware and schematics are open sourced: https://source.mntmn.com/MNT
    • Includes ZZ9000CX video slot capture card with cable
    • Includes metal slot bracket
    • Includes a minimal SDK with C examples for running ARM code from AmigaOS
      Note: USB port will not be active at shipping time. Support for it is part of a later update.
