@impiaaa @kyzh

Is it basically this?

1. set up a for-profit company
2. tell everyone it's a "collaborative", "open data" project
3. partner with a non-profit to earn brownie points & attention
4. train up your models and develop your tech based on crowdsourced data you got people to willingly upload
5. sell yourself to Evil Corp for $$$
6. shut down the open API, minimise and hamper any community efforts, maximise profits

Using #LibreOffice Writer for work for the first time and I adore it, it's so much lighter and more responsive than MS Word without the weird keyboard shortcut bugs that made working with Word on Mac a low-grade nightmare. Autocomplete doesn't work quite the way I'm used to though, I have to type Enter after typing the replaced string which I refuse to believe is the way it's supposed to work, and deleting the newline is very annoying.

coders and non-coders of the fediverse: what is your **favorite ever** monospaced font?

(boosts? i like monospaced fonts.)

So the entire architecture, engineering, and construction industry literally wrote an open letter complaining about proprietary software and monopolistic behaviour in .

We need more & better #OpenStreetMap presets for “themed” things. Let's make #OSM *deeper*, *deeper* data.

I dislike how it's easier to add chains of big brands (e.g. McDonalds) to #OpenStreetMap, rather than types of independent venues. I think we've lost something if #OSM becomes a great map... of chains.

Why are links to the commit log often so hidden on git forges.

a.k.a. why is not every git forge UI awesome like cgit?
