We just published a guest blog post by @Tutanota detailing their journey to provide a google free push notification service for their users: f-droid.org/en/2018/09/03/repl

Thanks a lot for going that way and for writing it up in a very interesting post as well!

Dear Fediverse,

Soon, some venture capitalist will put $5 million into a startup that offers free fediverse accounts with unlimited storage, etc.

Unless every other instance instantly blocks such a service from Day 1, you can kiss your fediverse goodbye and say hello to a new Gmail. Once network effects kick in, they will make the rules.

It _can_ happen here but you have an opportunity to kill it before it does.

The hardest part of using PGP, key management, doesn't scale well in large organizations. We solved this problem at First Look Media (where there are over 200 PGP users) with GPG Sync. We maintain a keylist, and everyone subscribes to it, so everyone has the latest public key for everyone else.

I'm excited to announce that we've submitted a draft RFC that will turn GPG Sync into an internet standard!

Check this out: tech.firstlook.media/keylist-r

Unpaywall is a handy little open source project, available to use as a browser extension, which makes it easier to find open access copies of journal papers.

I just thought I'd share this here for those who may need it. I find it very useful!

From birdsite: "The CEO of GoFundMe recently confirmed one third of GoFundMe campaigns are to pay medical bills. Feel free to look up exact statistics but essentially GoFundMe has become one of the biggest insurers in the country. What does that say about our healthcare system?"
