Found a FOSS alternative to Google Authenticator for 2-factor authentication. It's an F-Droid app called andOTP.

G. Authenticator, Okta Verify, andOTP etc. all implement the same algorithm called TOTP.

Anyone have a good #FOSS recommendation towards a privacy-centric messaging app for Android?

Now that the #Linux app is launched, I'm looking to build native apps for #macOS and #Windows next.

I already started on the macOS app (written in #Swift), but I need help polishing the UI and packaging it up. For the Windows app, I'm not sure where to start. So I'm looking for #developers that can help with either!

If you're interested, feel free to send me a message. Otherwise please pass it along to anyone you know!

Also, these are paid #FOSS projects. All code will be #GPL-licensed.

I'm starting to really like PeerTube. No blockchain or cryptocurrencies involved, which I'm not so fond of. However it's based on WebTorrent and uses the same federation system as Mastodon - both of which I use and consider fantastic technologies. It's as open as it gets, and seems very careful to not go astray of it's path.

I'd love to get my videos mirrored there. If anyone would want to help me with that - let me know :)

I just bounced into #commonsclause (commonsclause.com/) via redis (redislabs.com/community/common).

What the actual f**k?!

"...this new license is non-open source by definition. However, in practice..."

Talk about trying to look good and then just abusing the name of #opensource.

We have come to the point where the term "Open Source" is even being used by #nsa #surveillance partners.
Not just "open source intelligence".
These initiatives/projects aren't even #freesw but #openwashing
They're all just devaluing the brand, making it obsolete, @OpenSource

New to Mastodon.

This is @amescon PiLOT. It makes far more powerful by giving users the ability to incorporate several plugin modules e.g:

8 Digital Outputs
8 Analog Inputs
Profibus
GSM (SMS, GRPS data)
GPS
1-Wire
9-Axis Sensor (gyro, accelerometer, magnetometer)
Sharp Memory LCD
