While I wait for elusive , this phone remains my phone: libreboston.org/blog/project-l

I am very proud of it. It was my wife's phone and I took it out of an early retirement to be my "as free as possible" phone.

I think I have been patient for too long waiting for the Librem5 phone. Anyone else in the same boat?

This is a statue located in Berlin, entitled "Politicians Discussing Global Warming."

A quote from Cory Doctorow on Locus:

> One side effect of this [global-heating/pandemic/unemployment crises] is that it thoroughly forecloses on the dream of a General AI. Societies whose primary industry is digging through rubble for canned goods while drinking your own urine to survive do not make fundamental AI breakthroughs.

Someone please make more entertainment for kids based on free culture and a free software toolkit. Please.

My (three year-old) son is watching YouTube right now. Some of these YouTubers really overdo it. The family who created this particular video seems to have about three brand new cars at their home. I wouldn't be surprised if this (obviously wealthy) family purchased a car or two just to create the video. At the very least, they most likely bought the decorations they put on the cars just for this video.

There are also about ten large toy cars.

I have about 15 different inboxes with tens of thousands of unread messages. I will never achieve "inbox zero". 😂

I am doing my duty to the fediverse and tooting right now.

No, not that kind of "tooting", you sicko! 😜

@codewiz And of course I know you are not "Google Tech Support", but I (obviously) just need to complain and Google doesn't provide any healthy means to do so.

This reminds me, also, a few months ago they disconnected my YouTube. I petitioned it and they reversed it. I asked why -- nothing, no response. No place to even ask.

@codewiz I hear that you provide Google Tech Support. (hehehe)

A few days ago, I received this email from Google:

> Beginning July 8, 2020, the following app will no longer have access to your Gmail data:

> GNOME Evolution

> Google has always worked to design our tools and services with security at their core. Last year, we proactively updated the Google User Data Policy (developers.google.com/terms/ap) to better protect Gmail users.

Why is Google so unilateral and abrupt? Please advise!😥
