@libreoffice Been using LibreOffice for years and years. Installed the latest version from Debian testing and they had a donation button in the app. Just set up a 4 USD/mo subscription. Here's to hoping that LibreOffice remains maintained into the future.

The key lesson from the #Signal brownout today is that we shouldn't depend on any one platform, particularly those that tend to be centralized.

Have a dencentralized secure messenger on deck, I recommend using and supporting @delta_chat@twitter.com

I took the #signal downtime as an opportunity to appreciate what’s happening here. Millions around the world are making a choice for more privacy. And let’s be honest: every single tech company would come to a grinding halt under that kind of increase in load. We’re talking about well over 1500% in just a few days. I feel for the devops now working their asses off to get things back up. Set up a recurring donation now! I don’t even want to imagine the figure on their next aws bill...

The maintainers of the mailcow e-mail server suite have optimized and tweaked it a little for Delta Chat, great stuff :) mailcow.email/2021/01/14/back-

Delta Chat is probably the most scalable messenger today.
Even if a billion users migrated to our apps, we would be fine and it wouldn't ruin us. Our Operating Costs hardly increase with more users. A pretty unique strategic economical advantage, isn't it?

If you are looking for a privacy-friendly alternative to Facebook Events, you might want to check out Mobilizon:

joinmobilizon.org/en

It's a free open source federated events platform, and is part of the Fediverse as it uses the ActivityPub protocol.

Because it's still new, it currently only federates between Mobilizon instances. You can't follow Mobilizon instances from Mastodon yet, however this is planned for the future.

@FediVideos@mas.to As I get older, I can't help but think, "Have I missed my chance to make my mark, and to leave the world better than when I entered?" It's definitely nice to hear stories of people that got a later start, it makes me think there's still time left. :)
