Mycroft, the open source digital assistant, has been targeted by a patent troll 😡
@kde archive.kde.neon.org currently seems to be down. Are there mirrors I can switch too? My system is currently unusable without updates.
I'm actively recruiting volunteer devs for a native Signal / Signal-like client in Gtk, in the hopes that we can bring it to the @Purism Librem 5 phone. Please contact email@example.com if interested.

The thing I am most excited about with the Librem Key is its integration with Heads to make detecting tampering easy. It's something that doesn't exist anywhere else and in this deep dive post I explain the technical details. #infosec https://puri.sm/posts/the-librem-key-makes-tamper-detection-easy/
"What is ActivityPub and how will it change the Internet?". Nice post by @jdormit!
(The only thing I'd challenge is the bit about needing lots more users to compete with Facebook and Twitter - I think most active users here would say that the fediverse is doing well already & it doesn't have to become a wholesale Facebook/Twitter-slayer for it to be good and useful! I think in general we - I'm guilty of it too - spend too much time focusing on & comparing with them!)
