Just checking to see if this gets harvested by our #OER4Covid Feed on https://oer4covid.oeru.org/resources/oer4covid-feed/ due to the fact that firstname.lastname@example.org is following me... :)
Shame that gov't agency Kainga Ora isn't making use of open source tools like those created by Whare Hauora, and not respecting tenant privacy and giving *them* control of their data. Good to hear the charity's kaiwhakahaere, Hiria Te Rangi, on RNZ helping gov't lift its ill-informed game... https://www.rnz.co.nz/national/programmes/morningreport/audio/2018727259/concerns-over-plans-to-put-sensors-in-state-housing

There's a free and open source software project I'm very keen to see continue: Libravatar.org - see this: https://feeding.cloud.geek.nz/posts/looking-back-on-starting-libravatar/ Which up-and-coming #FOSS contributor would like to work with a few of us to keep this impressive (surprisingly deep and thorough) project thriving?! I can probably find sponsored #FOSS hosting and technical resources, but I don't have time to take it on myself. Do you?
If you're not one of the 0.001% of the population who truly get Git (I'm not), you should watch this if you want your mind gently bent in (not always) pleasant ways: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ffBJ4sVUb4 If nothing else, this offers an amazing metaphor for how the universe can achieve such amazing complexity, beauty, and depravity from a few simple, remarkably elegant rules (and nothing else) :)
