1. # apt install tesseract-ocr
2. $ tesseract input.jpg | <image file fomat> outputfile
3. cat outputfile.txt
You have now extractet text from any image into a .txt-file.
The .txt-extension is added by tesseract.
Yes, it IS that easy.
Convert a pdf-file with convert input.pdf output.tiff and feed the .tiff-file to tesseract then.

Send a signal to the European Commission that there are people who care about freedom on radio devices. There is something you can do: Raise your voice today! https://blog.mehl.mx/2019/protect-freedom-on-radio-devices-raise-your-voice-today/ … https://twitter.com/chaosupdates/status/1102524250253152256
⚠️ Heads-up: the #EU is considering ways to regulate software that runs on radio-enabled devices due concerns about interferences.
Some of their solutions could significantly harm #postmarketOS, but also related project such as #UBports, #LineageOS and #Replicant (among others).
The initiative is now seeking feedback, don't hesitate to send them yours! It seems that Non-eu citizens can contribute as well. There's not much time left, so act quickly!
The EU is starting a full on war on general purpose computing. A proposed law will make it impossible to install custom software on WiFi routers, smartphones and embedded devices!
This is insane. The hearing ends today. Please give your feedback: https://blog.mehl.mx/2019/protect-freedom-on-radio-devices-raise-your-voice-today/

@tootbrute I like that.
In an attempt to simply the terminology in the fediverse, I propose we start referring to "instances" as "neighborhoods". Here's a short pitch:
* Has its own set of rules.
* Has its own "guard" (sysadmin) that makes sure there are no incidents.
* Is usually (but not always) focused on a common theme.
You can send an update to:
1. A specific person.
2. Your own neighborhood.
3. Entire network.
IMO this proposal would make things about 30% easier to understand for newcomers.
which isn't to say that new technology doesn't alter displace creative labor, because it obviously does that (and has for thousands of years). but there's a reason that it takes twenty minutes for the credits of a pixar movie to scroll past, and I think it's at least partially because the availability of automated tools opens up larger possibility spaces for sophisticated and interesting creative choices
