How it started... How it's going. #DeleteFacebook

South Africa introducing a new ID system that includes 'x' as well as m/f, where 'x' includes intersex, transgender, NB, or unspecified ^.^

Game engine update: Making a GUI system!
TODO:
- Move GUI away from cow.
- Make more widget types.

WhatsApp: β€œWe want everyone to know our history of defending end-to-end encryption, and trust we’re committed to protecting people’s privacy and security."
Yeah, brilliant idea to send their sensitive data to Facebook then! πŸ™ƒ

I really liked the game #sonic06, but it did have some flaws. If games were released under an open license these kinds of issusewould be more managable I think. I wonder how it would be if the majority of games were open? Probably there would be a lot of user content and glitches could be fixed. #sonic

Happy Chinese new year!! 🎈 πŸŽ‡
A day too late (since I wasn't online for a while).

#klimasΓΈksmΓ₯let vant fram i Frankrike! :) Nok en flause for Norge der politikere og nΓ¦ringsliv har fraskrevet seg ansvar og til og med hΓΈyesterett ikke vil ta ordentlig affΓ¦re.

*Sigh*. The element.io app is removed from Google Play. These kind of things, as well as the Signal outage, are not helping efforts to help people switch to better messaging alternatives. It is a nice illustration of centralisation of power though.

Did you know that #ONLYOFFICE is the default app to work with DOCX, XLSX and PPTX files in CERNBox?

Maria Alandes Pradillo from CERN talks about deploying and maintaining #ONLYOFFICE within the CERNBox infrastructure:

CryptPad v4.0 is now available on GitHub github.com/xwiki-labs/cryptpad

This is what happens when a tech company becomes too big: bbc.com/news/world-australia-5

using its monopoly as a weapon to threaten governments, and making political ads for their own benefits.

Added Polls support, they will federate and are similar to Mastodon polls with the exception of notifications when the poll closes.

The German newspaper now also has their new app as / in

That means they do not force their app readers to provide data to Google or Apple. Good example how newspapers should treat their readers. f-droid.org/de/packages/de

(Their old app is here: f-droid.org/de/packages/de.the and @fdroidorg also explains their new issuebot with the new app: f-droid.org/en/2020/12/21/anno

🌎 🌍 🌏 I'm working on a #map of #Mastodon servers "near me" basically mapping servers that are region-specific, as a way for folks to find Mastodon users in their region. Blue = signed on to the Mastodon Covenant, Green = I"m not sure they did.

This is my first time using #openstreetmap so I'd be grateful of any and all feedback, and offers to collaborate - I assume I can share the map for editing somehow 🀷

Here's the link: u.osmfr.org/m/550053/

Do you have a recommended provider, located in Europe? I do not want to use PayPal.

I just thought: It's surprising how many Mastodon clients that have an official Mastodoon account, compared to other software devs (that are usually on Twitter instead).

And then I realised my brain needs a break πŸ˜‚ Don't expect much from me today.
