We decided to build our own documentation platform.

It offers many benefits like:

- Single account across Instance Picker, Documentation and Translation Platforms

- Easy to contribute

- Easy to translate

- No 3rd party APIs or Analytics

- Git versioned, each page is based on markdown files

- Markdown based WYSIWYG doc editing, git not required

- Integrations with our brand assets, CDN and other services

@aadil This is interesting! Version 0.6 would probably work great on my OnePlus5. I am a bit concerned about keeping this up to date, as this seems like a small project with infrequent releases.

@vortok One of my bittersweet realisations after spending time on the alt-web is that social media can actually be an educational, solidarity-building, and even healthy experience, but ad-driven/engagement-driven platforms have ruined it and somehow made a version of social media that alienates people instead of connecting them. And now this version has become the monoculture so everyone thinks social media is bad.

Social media isn't bad. Social media is good. This medium has so much potential

Why didn't I see this coming? Machine learning is actually an obvious tool to be used by the fossil fuel industry. It is also a good example of the doublespeak that Google, Amazon and Microsoft so often practices; making their server parks sustainable and loudly bragging about it, while selling thier AI services to Big Oil to help extract every last drop.

En mindre artig leseopplevelse i 2019 var The Uninhabitable Earth av David Wallace-Wells, bl.a. om hvordan store områder i verden kan bli ubeboelige pga varme (årets skumle nyord: våtpære-temperatur). Hvis du starter på den nå, rekker du vel å bli ferdig med den før skogbrannene i Australia er over.

Dag 15 - Edinburgh - Oslo med fly, fordi fire av fem er en grei tommelfingerregel for miljøtiltak i hverdagen. Ta de fire lette, la den vanskelige femte være.

@Gargron I have used @protonvpn (and their email service) for a couple of years, and I'm very satisfied with their service. Seems like one of the few VPN providers that still have a strong ethical commitment. Reasonably priced and linux-friendly.

@alcinnz honestly, I've been thinking lately about how nice it would be to have a search directory like Yahoo again. Not at all a practical solution, and a modern implementation would basically be de.licio.us

but still, I wanna at least have a personal multi-layered directory with brief abstracts for the pages that I note down, and if enough people did that and federated it? idk, it'd be a neat project at least

@bjoern @rysiek Once set up, it's not that hard to use for less technically inclined people. It's comparable to Apples Mail, more or less.

@rysiek it's still on the heavy side, but it performs well and have a lot of features. It also integrates well with GNOME (and possibly other DE's)

@rysiek I have started using Evolution again and it's much more stable an actually quite nice to use now, compared to how it was a couple of years back.

Tonight I am that person advocating against proprietary and intrusive platforms on those platforms themselves . I hate having an account on them and logging in, but where better to get the message out to those who may not know? Also, my friends and family probably hate me.
