Hoy hace 6 años que murió Aaron Swartz por la presión del Gobierno de EEUU. Él solo quería y luchaba por hacer el internet más libre. #AaronSwartz
I've run some calculations based on #Eunomia questions. Unfortunately, no easy way for me to get this information for the entire fediverse, but based on the mastodon.social database:
25% of users post in English
6.5% in Japanese
3.7% in French
3.6% in Spanish
2.7% in Russian
2.4% in German
Notably, 71 users post in "squeak"
According to @TheKinrar's instances.social service, 162,776 people were active on Mastodon in the first week of 2019 (22,459 on mastodon.social)
@merce la verdad y siendo usuario de searx. El post destila paranoia. Y un empleado de duckduckgo lo desmiente. Algunos en el mundo de la privacidad entran en esta fase. Creo que ejem... es peor para tu privacidad comprar online, usar un smartphone o tener alguna red social privativa que el hecho de usar un buscador que basa su negocio en la privacidad.
Estaba yo pensando qué curioso que en español digamos «me suena a chino» y que en inglés sea «it's all Greek to me» y he encontrado este gráfico genial sobre los estereotipos de lenguas incomprensibles, según países :) La info completa está en este post http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/?p=1024
Fellow Fediversian, I've been offered the possibility of giving a talk about free software at the Faculty of Engineering to students of mechanical engineering (I'm a mechanical engineer myself).

I'd like to talk about ethics and privacy, but maybe a more practical point of view can attract them more to our universe, I don't know...
@jartigag @oscoder87 I started to play go again after some years with @cmhobbs (who is now disappeared for the internet and I hope he's fine!). I made a couple of go boards to learn and teach algorithms.
It's a nice problem to solve tbh.
This is when I started with #Clojure :
And this is the same thing for my #Python students:
my first steps on #programming 😊
i was like 8-10 (i don't really remember) when i borrowed a book about visual basic from my town's library.
it was easy to follow the code to make a battleship game and figure out on the way how programming works
So what to do:
1. Does the app look legitimate? Are the permissions it declares (AndroidManifest.xml) reasonable? The library dependencies (build.gradle) look okay?
2. Does it build with fdroid build <appID>?
3. Is there at least a description and Summary present in the metadata file? Also author name, website, donation information where applicable?
We need reviewers for new apps submitted as Merge Requests to #FDroid. There are over 40 pending MRs:
