So the license review is complete. We are officially a #GPL #coop.

All the #Android & backend code and UI sketches are now public - gitlab.com/coopon

There are a few writings on our analysis of the transport situation in India. It would be of interest to a few - gitlab.com/coopon/uauto/uauto-

Much of the work had stagnated as we have to take on other projects for sustenance.

If you're interested in creating 2D animation, you might want to take a look at the short film "Hero":

vidcommons.org/videos/watch/f5

There's a brief set of behind-the-scenes clips at the end of the short to illustrate how it was made.

"Hero" was created on Grease Pencil, a set of 2D graphics tools in the open source graphics suite Blender.

Anyone can download and use Blender free:

When you come to a decentralized, federated and p2p platform, don't come alone.

Bring your friends too because these platforms are built with the idea of putting communication control back to us.

It works well when we flock together as a group so that we will have our friends check out here.

Don't come alone and don't feel the isolation.

🎉 Excited to present another of my project!

🌍 Atlasr, a truly open-source and free map browser, github.com/atlasr-org/atlasr.

The open-source map ecosystem is mature, but no mainstream tool à la Google Maps exists. Atlasr is the response to that.

#Briar is an unusual kind of messenger for Android devices: there are no servers, messages are stored on your phone and sent directly to your contact's phone through TOR, wi-fi or bluetooth.

It's designed for journalists, activists, people working in disaster zones and anyone interested in "off the grid" communication.

The official site is here:

briarproject.org

The app is free, open source and available through @fdroidorg and Google Play.

"AI" nowadays gets (mis)used (more often than not) as synonym for "computer", "algorithm", or "program" (which nowadays has its own synonym, "app"). As long as it's "smart" -- another widely-misused term that refers to constant monitoring of users.
