Episode 113: tidepodcast.org/?name=2018-11-

This week, Doug and Dai discuss what people get up to in autonomous vehicles, internet-era ways of working, Facebook-designed school curricula, open source culture, podcasts, information environments, and more!

you may have already sen via @jessamyn's always useful newsletter, but if not, a super helpful "adventure"/tutorial to help newbies start editing wikipedia in under an hour en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedi

No idea why you have to install it via Flatpak (which seems to add an extra layer of complexity to Linux apps) but FeedReader is a very nice front-end to my Nextcloud News feeds!


The write.as source code has been published, and is now self hostable.


Will you be getting a smart home spy for Christmas? Facebook, Google and Amazon are eager to get their new devices under your tree. But will they give away your privacy? - theguardian.com/technology/201 - Nice to see it addressed by a broader medium like The Guardian

Long ago, when starting the work on #GliderInk I decided that I want to make it open source, and initially used CC-BY-SA-NC #license. I was afraid that if the project takes off, someone can use it for their company marketing.

It was only later when a friend explained to me how much -NC could hurt all the makers and writers who would like to translate anything I have, improve the cover or introduce any changes. I decided to change to CC-BY-SA.

Great text on that:


Notes on the Week 3 web chat with @benwerd & @Downes


For those who don't know what is, it's a loosely structured open course. I say loose because people are invited to opt in at any time for any length. It's not a start-to-finish-required type thing and lots of topics will interest people. Have a look... We're currently on Week 3. el30.mooc.ca/course_outline.ht

Starting in 10 minutes on - conversation with Ben Werdmuller - Co-founded Elgg and Known, worked on Medium and Latakoo, and invested in innovative media startups at Matter

Episode 112: Running tto Bangkok


This week, Doug and Dai discuss whatโ€™s been going on over the last couple of weeks, MozFest, MoodleMoot US, Universal Basic Income, humane technology, Creative Commons, success, decentralised apps, and more!

So last month Path, the social network, shut down.

My family have tried Google+ (which also shut down), Vero (crap, and funded by Saudis), and Telegram (too much of a chat app).

I'd like nothing more than an open source replacement for Path. It's possibly my favourite app of all time.

Doesn't need to be decentralised or federated or anything fancy. Just needs to not be Facebook.

I've just realised that I've been 37 years old for almost a year, and haven't once linked to my favourite part of my favourite Monty Python film once!

Not only is Dennis the Constitutional Peasant indicative of my age, he also increasingly represents my politics! ๐Ÿ‘
