planned obsolescence really is a big glaring counterexample to the idea that capitalism results in innovation or even improvement. lightbulbs, smartphones, could last forever, or at least 5x as long - but they don't cuz it wouldn't be as profitable. I know everyone on here already knows this, but I think about it a lot.

The Greek government has chosen #cisco webex for distance education.

For many months, the Ministry of Education had been refusing to publish the contract.

On 22/03, it got published:

- The MoE bought licenses that costed € 2 million - instead of using a #foss solution, e.g. BigBlueButton, that would cost no license fees and would empower the local economy

- The contract permits Cisco to use data of the 1.5 million users of the platform for its own purposes and disclose it to others

🌎 🌍 🌏 I'm working on a #map of #Mastodon servers "near me" basically mapping servers that are region-specific, as a way for folks to find Mastodon users in their region. Blue = signed on to the Mastodon Covenant, Green = I"m not sure they did.

This is my first time using #openstreetmap so I'd be grateful of any and all feedback, and offers to collaborate - I assume I can share the map for editing somehow 🤷

British people really have the audacity to wonder why they don't have independence days like everyone else.

We have been warned that a free version of #Fedilab has been published on GPlay.

We don't own it and we didn't build that version. If you want to use the app for free, you should only download it from #Fdroid which builds apps from sources.

... "The night of the elections I emphasized that I am here to guarantee the unity, security and well-being of all Greeks. I will now allow anyone to divide us. We will not let anyone take us back [to the past]"

I believe that the "warning" part is pretty clear: Don't resist. We are watching the country who founded democracy sink into the clutches of a family-run govt of repression, with police at the frontline. Walking outside or asking questions DOES NOT excuse violence. 8/8

"...And the life of our fellow citizen, the young police officer who was endangered, must awaken us. In these moments, all must show self-restraint and levelheadedness. And I am addressing our young ones, who are destined to create. Not to destroy. Blind rage does not lead anywhere. Sadly, some ignored our warnings." ... 7/
