Big right-to-repair win: FTC blasts tech giants for making it so difficult to mend devices
Amazon had sales income of €44bn in Europe in 2020 but paid no corporation tax
Our tiny not-for-profit based in Ireland pays tax at the full rate. Meanwhile, Bezos doesn’t know what to do with his money and we don’t know if we can pay the rent next year.

@dave @adam I must say I'm rather lost with last week's episode as I don't get the details of #Lightning (yet, don't have a learning disability 😄). Is there any earlier episode where you discuss the 'basics' that I should listen? Or any other podcast/channel/site/whatever you would recommend?
(I know how to use DuckDuckGo but with the Bitcoin hype I'm afraid of checking crap explanations by a wannabe-YouTube-star)
The #EC just laid out their digital targets for 2030
Per 4 years they set their #OSS strategy
All this is where our #FediverseFutures align.
At #SocialHub we're preparing a great event in the form of two webinars and a workshop in April, for representatives of the European Commission.
Interest for the event came from EC itself, who via @NGIZero - funder of many great AP projects - approached SocialHub to organize.
You can help prepare and certainly join the Event!
"Apple Podcasts … features more than 500,000 active podcasts, including content in more than 100 languages."
On PI, with our mapping in place, we could map more than 7000 languages and dialects.
Suck it, Apple! :)
Great article. Fail out loud!

"Anyone in the wallet business has a very rich API to do stuff with. We don't have the counterpart on the node backend infrastructure side. Like 'you need an API and do these clips, and get the person who's making the clip paid as well, hold my beer'. If I were a younger man, I'd be doing this already. Setting up nodes, building APIs for podcast apps." @adam in Podcasting 2.0: Episode 30: Digital Abolitionists
Yes, please. Help those pod-clients!
"Bijna duizend dorpen eerder aangesloten op glasvezel"
éérder?!? KPN treuzelt al jaren met het aanleggen van goede internetverbindingen in landelijke gemeenten. Omdat het te weinig winst oplevert. En dus zijn er allerlei burgerinitiatieven ontstaan, o.m. in Drenthe.
Kop zou "Bijna duizend dorpen krijgen na jaren aansluiting sneller internet" moeten zijn.

- Love the recommendation ideas. Couldn't resist creating some mockups for #AntennaPod. Attached: on episode level.
About network recommendations @adam: it can be a nice idea, but if publishers do it in automated fashion it kinda boils down to the same thing as Netflix-recommendations. Wondering if they (network-injected ones) should be tagged differently somehow, so they could be displayed differently from recommendations from the podcasters.
Just listened to Podcasting 2.0, Episode 29: http://adam.curry.com/html/PC202920210319Podcas-zWMn5T8bHKPR2fCbt7KWv50RsCtstf.html 1/2
- Sorry to hear about your rough week @dave. Take care.
- Not sure that's what you were talking about, but PI search is a bit too precise if you ask me: "Les médias" and "Les medias" return different lists. Would be great if the API had a 'forgiving' switch. E.g ignore accents, return results with one character difference.
- Kudos to the one who made the fancy documentation pages :)
