They offer three month internships with free and open source projects — #FOSS. Interns are paid a 5,500 USD stipend and have access to a 500 USD travel allowance.

I can't recommend this program enough. It's such a rich and welcoming experience, in addition to being a great way to start working in tech.

#editbacklog
Constraints of social media affects #photography posted in it. Images are small, both in terms of the resolution (allowed by platform) and size (of the screen). Some photos works. Some, like this one, doesn't. This poses the question through. Is the photo on social media the photo itself, or its representation... or a social media #photo the same medium as a print photograph at all?

@nextcloud Big shout out to the #Nextcloud team,you guys have an amazing / open source product! I have been looking at the latest version for pi, and I am impressed. The moment I saw the ebook reader (.epub) app availability in this open for development environment I was dancing!

Thank you and also huge thanks to the #Pi nextcloud community, that is the version I am using. Amazing product!

More young people leaving social media, while more older people (though a smaller fraction) use it more. Last few years, I've had to correct some older people of misinformation they obtained from social media. While 10 years ago, they were telling me not to believe everything in the internet. Aaah! how the tables have turned!

I've had significant improved mental peace after I quit WA/FB. Hope one day I can avoid twitter as well. The reverse could also happen due to necessities. I go to flute classes only after asking a colleague whether there are classes today. She gets to know from WA.
