But, as this bill shows, the anti-repair axis *can* be defeated. In Massachusetts, Bay Staters overwhelmingly voted in an automotive right to repair laws in a 2020 ballot measure. In New York, the governor just signed an unprecedented right to repair electronics law. And in Colorado, we have the first successful right to repair wheelchairs law.

Wow, after 25 years of Unix experience, I learned that you can filter output in .

Press ampersand (&) and enter a regex to show only lines matching the regex.

Press ampersand (&) and then exclamation mark (!) to apply an inverse filter.

If only one in three of us would use their device one year longer, we could save the resources of producing hundreds of millions phones annually.

helps the environment by using to overcome software obsolescence.

software doesn't need to constantly change! sometimes it's just fine like it is!

In mainstream computing, "ease of use" is usually implemented as "superficial simplicity" or "pseudo-simplicity", i.e. as an additional layer of complexity that hides the underlying layers. Meanwhile, systems that are actually very simple and elegant are often presented in ways that make them look complex to laypeople (think about the esoteric syntax of Forth or Lisp, for example).

Computer Science towards sustainable permacomputing
"Unrealistic" "People wont want that" "Too many assumptions about the future"

Computer Science which assumes everyone lives in VR in the future
"Visionary" "Futuristic"

i've tagged out 600+ open source, experimental and tiny tools by their qualities and built a new website for sorting through them!

these are all tools towards joyful digital creation, with the goal of enabling working entirely outside of proprietary systems- moving instead from one hand-made software to another.

(the list takes submissions if it is missing yours >:))

@dredmorbius Not an online service, but the Readability algorithm is FLOSS and used by Mozilla in Firefox's Reader view:

This has been ported to a C CLI utility:
And a Go CLI utility and library:

I use them to extract article HTML and pipe it into w3m/lynx/retwaq for reading, or into for editing. They're also useful for piping article HTML through a tool like Pandoc to convert an article to a lightweight markup format like Markdown.

go-readability is used by (and made for) Shiori (, a FLOSS bookmark manager with a Web front-end. It saves articles offline and extracts+displays article HTML.

Loving Bandcamp's DRM-free FLAC download options - can support the bands I love and listen to them with no strings attached in original fidelity.

To be truly countercultural today, in a time of tech hegemony, one has to, above all, betray the platform, which may come in the form of betraying or divesting from your public online self.
