#Blender gets all their videos blocked worldwide by #YouTube. #Armory3D has their #Patreon page closed down and their backers refunded without any notice as to why. All the #FOSS projects hosted by #GitHub now have their hosting at the mercy of #Microsoft.

And this is just a few of the recent examples.

When is the #FOSS community going to learn that we need to create and run our own infrastructure as well as apps?

Support #decentralised #FOSS infrastructure! (eg #PeerTube, #tilt, #Gitea etc)

Has anyone used Kolab Now for their email/calendar etc.? I'm happy with Fastmail but being Australian they are under 5-eyes regulation etc.

Morning all. This essentially sums up what today looks like for me:

This is also interesting from the article.

"Facebook has not fully disclosed the manner in which it pre-processes photos on the iOS camera roll, meaning if a user has any Facebook app installed on their iPhone, then Facebook accesses and analyses the photos the user takes and/or stores on the iPhone, the complainant alleges."

Sounds like FB is in some way processing camera roll images to extract data (location, time, maybe even contents) even when sync is switched off

I've been glued to the Nintendo Switch all week, after picking it up last weekend. It's my first console since the PS2 many years ago, and is an exercise in having fun for the sake of fun.

Mario seemed as good an idea as any after realising I may have some guilt issues around enjoying myself 🤔😁
