Disappointed to read more disgusting articles about #Stallman getting back to the #FSF.

This time an open letter signed by a bunch of people in the "open source" demands that "all members of the FSF board should be removed". This is ridiculous bullshit.
I'd like to remind everyone how this shitstorm started:
Stallman resigned after the leak of emails about Jeffrey Epstein's sex trafficking of a minor, in which Stallman objected to the use of the word "assaulting" and called it "morally absurd to define 'rape' in a way that depends on minor details such as which country it was in or whether the victim was 18 years old or 17."
The article goes on saying:
Stallman "recommended that, should someone find out they are pregnant and the child tests positive for Down's syndrome, 'the right course of action for the woman is to terminate the pregnancy.'" The page also said that "RMS has spent years on a campaign against using people's correct pronouns. This is poorly disguised transphobia."
They're really scraping the bottom of the barrel looking for anything that, presumably, should make him look bad. Not sure how that has anything to do with free software either, nor what would be the connection with replacing the whole board of directors. If anything, this attack is the poorly disguised attempt at dismantling the FSF.

Finally:
"RMS has a history of mistreating women and making them feel uncomfortable, unsafe, and unwelcome,"
More #slander. This "history of mistreating women" amounts to a single blog post written by a random MIT student, Selam Gano who openly admits getting paid to blog. I haven't heard of any other source of evidence of this "mistreating behaviour", aside from some random and frankly weak tweets. The most prominent seems to be one presenting the writing on Stallman's business card "Tender embraces" as proof of him mistreating and making women feel "uncomfortable, unsafe and unwelcome".

I, for one, would really love to know who is behind this Selam Gano person and who she accepted money from.

"In our interviews, maintainers described being burned out by changes in what was expected of them fundamentally changed as projects scaled. These interviews were rich with insights into the deep and varied commitments of F/OSS maintainers, but also the emotional toll doing F/OSS work can take."

@kirschner Still, though, think Fairphone would be a *good* example of making #FreeSoftware transcend the mere "everything-is-gratis" approach, like what #librem does: How to provide software, cloud services, ... *not* built and supported by unpaid volunteers in their spare time (or, even worse, by volunteers who are, in their dayjobs, paid by the usual big players and monopolists)?
 

Switching my site to WriteFreely

I have been using WordPress ever since I decided to have a personal website/blog. It has served me well but I've come to a point where I got tired of messing with plugin conflicts, and spammers. I also like Markdown a lot and the available plugins for WordPress were either broken or had conflicts with other plugins. So I decided to try something simpler. At first I had my mind on static generators but then I came across WriteFreely, a minimalistic, distributed and customizable blogging software. It supports Markdown and HTML and that's all I need right now. On the minus side, it does not support media uploads but we will show a workaround to that, on this guide.

This morning I quickly noted down a few points from the panel discussion on "#FreeSoftware development for the #PublicAdministration" including a few thoughts on a technological distribution of powers for a 21st century #democracy https://k7r.eu/panel-free-software-development-for-the-public-administration/ #PMPC
 
"Call for contributions to build a pan-European open source software inventory to help identifying the most critical open source software and tools used by public organisations across Europe.

To ensure a comprehensive inventory, the project team invites representatives of public organisations to participate in the data collection exercise by sharing their data on the open source software used in their organisations."

Thanks to all the contributors to the #Fediverse creating a decentralised network based on #FreeSoftware which I can also use today to say thank you on #ilovefs
 
Heute ist I <3 FreeSoftware Day, und deshalb erst einmal meinen herzlichsten Dank an all die vielen netten Menschen die in ihrer Freizeit kleine und große Dinge an #FreeSoftware machen. Danke an all die fleißigen Menschen die Übersetzungen anfertigen, Dokumentationen schreiben in Foren und Mailinglisten helfen Probleme zu lösen. Ohne euch wäre diese schöne #FLOSS Bubble nicht möglich. Danke dafür!1!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Insbesondere sind mir im vergangenen Jahr ganz viele kleine und große Werkzeuge ans Herz gewachsen ohne die es für mich sehr viel schwerer wäre... und ich vergesse wahrscheinlich weit mehr als die Hälft
  • khal, khard, vdirsync, radicale, nextcloud, seafile, dokuwiki um Kalender, Kontakte und Dateien in der eigenen Cloud verwalten.
  • Jitsi, BigBlueButton, NextCloud Talk, mumble, XMPP + Dino & conversation, Matrix + Element, IRC und XChat, Sylpheed, Friendica und den Rest des Fediverses um mit Menschen zu kommunizieren, manchmal wird es etwas viel, aber lieber etwas zu viel als gar nicht.
  • ASCIIDoctor, LaTeX, pandoc (manche Leute mögen die PDFs nicht die beim ASCIIDoctor raus kommen, sondern wollen lieber docx haben), vim, geany, git, fossil, wkhtmltopdf, pdfgrep, evince ... und noch ganz viele andere für diesen Office Krams, vergessen wir nicht gimp und xsane zum einscannen und bearbeiten einiger Dinge.
  • bash, fish, ssh, mc und all the anderen Tools für den Alltag auf der CLI.
  • nitter, invideous, OpenStreetMap und so für die _alternativen_ Dienste zu den etablierten Platzhirschen.
  • music123, mpv, libreelec, kodi und den youtube-dl um für Unterhaltung drum herum zu sorgen.
  • Und natürlich nicht zu vergessen firefox, lxqt für das grafische Interface zum Desktop und dieser ominösen Wolke namens Internet.
Danke! Insbesondere an jene, deren Projekte ich jetzt nicht aufgeführt habe, die aber die Projekte die ich da benutze überhaupt erst möglich machen weil sie Funktionalitäten zur Verfügung stellen die ansonsten einfach fehlen ;-)

So und jetzt geh ich erstmal in den Park um ein bisschen frische Luft zu tanken.

I'm really sad to hear that Thomas decided to leave all social networks and with it the development of #Fedilab.

It was always my preferred app for #Mastodon and #Friendica. I will continue to use it as long as possible and hope that others will pick it up.

I can understand his decision on a personal level and wish him all the best. We should not allow such toxic behavior in our communities and take a clear stance against it.

In letzter Zeit stosse ich immer wieder auf tolle Projekte,die einen die Anfangstage des Computers nochmal neu erleben lassen,allerdings auf modernen Computern und mit modernen Funktionen.Was ich meine: Nachbauten oder Weiterentwicklungen von alten Systemen,die schon beinahe in Vergessenheit geraten sind.Hier eine kleine Auflistung:
- #Haiku - https://haiku-os.org - Ein quelloffener und immernoch aktiv entwickelter Nachbau von #BeOS ,der im Wesentlichen neu geschrieben wurde,aber auch ein paar Programme von BeOS uebernommen hat,nachdem der Quellcode zugaenglich gemacht wurde - Ich habe das System selbst schon ausprobiert und bin begeistert: Schnell,stabil und mit vielen tollen Funktionen und viel Software.
- #ArcaNoae - https://www.arcanoae.com - Eine Weiterentwicklung von OS/2 Warp 4,die immernoch aktiv entwickelt wird und noch die alten #OS2 Programme unterstuetzt,aber auch moderne #Linux und #Windows Programme.Leider ist das Projekt proprietaer und kostenpflichtig,weshalb ich es auch selbst noch nicht ausprobiert habe,aber interessant ist es auf jeden Fall trotzdem.
- #CommonDesktopEnvironment - https://sourceforge.net/projects/cdesktopenv/ - Die grafische Oberflaeche vom alten kommerziellen #UNIX Betriebssystem existiert weiterhin und ist inzwischen open source.Es handelt sich um einen ganz normalen Window Manager fuer #Xorg ,der auf einer aktuellen Linux Distribution installiert werden kann und auch mit moderner Software klar kommt.Das Programm wird noch aktiv entwickelt,hat aber das Look and Feel von damals.Bis jetzt habe ich es nicht getestet,aber es steht auf meiner Todo Liste.
- #ReactOS - https://reactos.org - Ein Nachbau von #Windoof ,als es noch brauchbar war.Vielleicht nicht 100% passend in diesen Beitrag,da Windoof (leider) noch nicht in Vergessenheit geraten ist,aber eine brauchbare Version davon werden die juengeren Menschen vielleicht bald nicht mehr kennen.ReactOS ist in etwa auf dem Stand von Windoof 7,was die Benutzeroberflaeche betrifft,unterstuetzt aber auch neuere Programme,da es sich Teile des Quellcodes mit dem #Wine Projekt teilt.Es ist quelloffen unter der GPL 2 Lizenz.Ich hab es selbst getestet,aber das ist schon ueber ein Jahr her.Damals konnte ich mit der Installation einer aktuellen #Opera #Browser Version das gesamte System schrotten,aber ich denke,da wurde inzwischen nachgebessert.

What is GNUnet?


https://gnunet.org/en/about.html

GNUnet is an alternative network stack for building secure, decentralized and privacy-preserving distributed applications. Our goal is to replace the old insecure Internet protocol stack. Starting from an application for secure publication of files, it has grown to include all kinds of basic protocol components and applications towards the creation of a GNU internet.
