"The resulting monocrop condition of our network infrastructures do not provide an easy ground for peer-to-peer technologies to flourish.

Peer-to-peer protocol biodiversity is dosed with weed killer, while the client-server monocrop is fertilized." one.compost.digital/seeding-th

it's possible to honour rms for his pioneering work while being disgusted by his communications on other matters.

i've met him. he's quite odd. i can both like and not like him at the same time.

:boost_ok: :ablobcatwave: Please boost this post if you would like the EFF to join the fediverse. :ablobcatbongo:

In a survey the EFF sent me, I suggested they create an account on the fediverse, so they can reach more supporters and support innovative free software that promotes interoperability among platforms, something they've advocated for in the past, too.

If you can boost this post, maybe I'll be able to show them that there are quite a few users who would like them here!

The EFF is the infamous nonprofit organisation that fights for privacy, government transparency, and digital freedom. Their fight is very important, and the EFF is very special to me. https://www.eff.org/about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_Frontier_Foundation

You can see some of their work here https://www.eff.org/work

In the meantime, you can follow @eff, which is an unofficial mirror of their Twitter.

I worked over 5 days on this one and I am so glad I turned out like this. I feel like I improved so much with ink and watercolor recently.

This is St. Nicholas Church in Malá Strana, Prague

I'm kinda exited that @Mojeek is trying to challange the unchallangeble Google. It seems their recent push to find a viable way to make money in the search space has landend on a vary reasonable stance: Ads are not the fundamental problem. The fundamental problem is tracking.

They are having an AMA on HN and Reddit today:

DeepL is such a great alternative to Google Translate and they just added support for 13 new European languages! 👏

I hope Firefox and Brave work on an official integration with DeepL as there is a real need for this.

If NANO excites you a little, you should also take a look at IOTA, which is also a non-PoW, fee-less and DAG-based crypto.

I'm currently watching their live show now where the NANO attack was mentioned. I have followed the developers of IOTA since 2016 and they are the only crypto project, in addition to NANO, that has held my attention all these years.

In case you’re wondering if Google or Facebook, etc., will keep you secure, yes, they will try. In the same way a farmer tries to keep their sheep secure from everything else but their own knife.

Security does not imply safety.
