Guau, no me digas que el CEO de Ryanair es razista

**Ryanair boss wants extra airport checks on Muslim men**

"Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary said he supports the profiling of "single Muslim males" at airports, because "that is where the threat is coming from." He said he believes terrorists are "generally Muslims.""

Ethical, easy-to-use and privacy-conscious alternatives to well-known software: Get off fb, goog, amazon, apple and msw!

I don't normally beg for boosts, but this is worth sharing with your IRL friends via email and w/e else. Older Mastodonians pretty much know most of these. I hope?

#Discord Is Not An Acceptable Choice For Free Software Projects

"Use of Discord by a group discriminates almost totally against those who prefer or, due to circumstance, require privacy for their own personal information, such as IP or related geolocation. You cannot sign up for Discord anonymously." "This excludes many people from your group by discriminating against those who insist on their human right to privacy."

Let's hope this insight spreads in the #Rust community as well, where #Discord seems to be favored an succesor to #IRC once #Mozilla shuts it down.

Are you looking to join a Mastodon server and are a Pokémon fan? Or know someone who is?

We have solid rules, a cool theme and tons of Pokémon-related emoji (every single Pokémon icon and more!)

Facebook 

"People who deactivated Facebook in a study were happier afterward, reporting higher levels of life satisfaction and lower levels of depression and anxiety.

That change is equal to about 25-40% of the beneficial effect typically reported for psychotherapy."

Hey hackers! We want legislation requiring that publicly financed software be made available under a licence!

Sigh. DRM is difficult to fight against, but it's the knot that needs to unravel for the cause of software freedom.

Most people don't care & end up supporting it. If we pay to see what everyone's talking about, we get counted as supporting it. If we don't pay & instead "pirate" it, worse they'll turn around and say "see, this is why we need DRM!".

What we really need to do is support artists to say "see, DRM is totally unnecessary to make a profit" by supporting indie artists.

Hi! I like Daft Punk and Justice. Do you like them? Then maybe you can suggest me another similar group you know :)
Boost are appreciated, thank you!

@hummingrain It's all in JavaScript with Choo (a very lightweight front-end framework) and Fastify (a speedy back-end/server/API framework), but what I mostly need now is ideas—specifically GoodReads functionality that's not already in the scope: gitlab.com/Alamantus/Readlebee

For example, I'm realizing I have no author-specific functional accounted for, and I would like to account for it if you know about it! Things like that are most helpful, along with design ideas!

For real like Bandcamp is exactly the kind of service we *hoped* the internet would give us: “hey, people make things, they set their own price inc. free, we provide the storefront, you buy it and the money goes to the creator, you get it in a DRM-free format and can play it however you want, we just make money to keep going & improving and aren’t a VC-funded nightmare company of rampant reckless growth that will do something nightmarish and implode.”

We need more media platforms like that.

The French government switched to Matrix, the German government evaluates free, open and federated messaging solutions, Nextcloud Talk became a great Slack replacement, public authorities in Germany consider a mass exodus from Twitter & Co after EuGH ruling, next stop Mastodon... Seems like we have both, the (political) momentum and the technology to make 2020 a great year for the free & open internet!
