Hi #fediverse ! I am seeking opinions on the terms of service for Taguette (free/open source qualitative analysis tool)
We have a hosted version of Taguette that people can use for free and I took a crack at writing TOS for that: https://gitlab.com/remram44/taguette/blob/terms-of-service/taguette/templates/tos.html
If anyone wants to give me an opinion about this, I would *very* much appreciate it -- it's my first time doing anything like this and I basically just riffed off the Open Source Institute & Glitch TOS

I just programmed an open source tool called semiphemeral that lets you automatically delete your old tweets, except for the ones you want to keep. Would be cool to add support for making your toots semiphemeral too, one day... https://micahflee.com/2019/06/semiphemeral-automatically-delete-your-old-tweets-except-for-the-ones-you-want-to-keep/
Even though they barely mention it, this is an excellent showcase of the amazing performance Linux KVM (and QEMU!) provides these days.
"sudo: timed out reading password"
Using sudo in commands is now taking a very long time for the password field to show up to take input (if it does at all). Any ideas on what's happening here?
Side note: my battery icon in the top panel on gnome has also disappeared around the same time. Related?

this talk by @mako last year on how the tools of free software have been co-opted in order to create freedom for companies instead of freedom for humans did a great job of bringing together a bunch of threads I've been following recently as well as pointing out new insights and ways forward.
highly recommended if you care about ways in which software can help people and are concerned about our work being subverted.
Chrome is apparently going to impose limits on ad blocking unless you're an enterprise user.
Google using its dominance of the web to squeeze out competitors and enhance its ad revenue? WHO COULD HAVE SEEN THIS COMING?! 😱 </sarcasm>
