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.

I've run some calculations based on 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"

@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 languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/

@ondiz esta es la primera charla sobre estos temas que di en público. A fecha de hoy cambiaría muchas cosas pero a lo mejor te puede servir de inspiración o algún gráfico.
Pero está orientada a gente de a pié.

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).

What would you thing is the most appropiate approach?

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...

Ideas welcome!

@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 :
github.com/ekaitz-zarraga/go-g

And this is the same thing for my students:
gitlab.com/ElenQ/LearnPython/p

wow, this is a new one

if you need my “personal data” to pay your staff then you need to find a more ethical fucking business model

a few days after finishing the battleship game, i found a picture of an (i supposed) imaginary game. i thought it would be could if it had existed..
so i coded it 😉

my first steps on 😊
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

en la semana antes de navidad hice los exámenes y trabajos de 5 asignaturas, todo junto. los profesores de 4 de ellas hoy todavía no han sacado ninguna de las notas que faltan 🤨

así que otra vez a llevarse los apuntes por si acaso 🙄

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?
