7 ways to maximize misery (link below) hit me hard when I realized I am actually doing some of the things listed
"Open source body quits GitHub, urges you to do the same" (Software Freedom Conservancy)
Tiktok leaking data (again)
Why in the hell are people still using #tiktok when they straight up lie
Holy crap that's a lot of new stuff in Thunderbird 102!
@fsfe asked translations for their open letter, that sounds pretty important but I can’t find any Finnish resources talking about free software in general. What English resources are the most valuable in explaining free software? So what resources should I translate into Finnish first? I don’t have unlimited time but I’m considering doing a translation of the most important fsf or fsfe page(s) or whatever is the most important and would reach the most people
Never ever saw any software company (or drug dealer) do that before.
If you are in the EU and have not yet heard of this vote. There is a European's citizens Initiative for a Universal Basic Income. This is an EU binding vote. https://eci.ec.europa.eu/014/public/#/screen/home . There is only 5 days left and over 700,000 votes still needed. Please vote.
Same topic, another one sided piece of news claiming that limiting the competition is the only option to improve safety. They really don’t see that if there were mandatory parking areas, we could have much safer and still competitive electric scooter market
Is the safety really so big issues that they have to kill potential business? The safety has been falsely used as an argument against #righttorepair
How about setting rules for all companies in terms of safety, like fine for not parking in a proper spot? We don't limit the amount of car manufacturers just because few people can't behave
Big electric scooter companies are asking for barriers of entry into the market. Their idea is that cities should charge a fee in order to provide services especially in Joensuu (Finland), because at least two Finnish scooter companies have been founded there. Yes there are safety reasons for regulations, but Tier literally suggested limiting competition (and so innovation) as a way to improve safety (article in Finnish)
It's nontechnical so you don't have to know anything about ActivityPub to read it!

Things I would have wanted to know earlier:
Linux directories are actually standardized and documented
It feels weird that the native remote desktop protocol in Gnome is a proprietrary microsoft remote desktop protocol. It is almost same situation as with file sharing, windows shares/network drives work usually out of the box on linux, but for unix nfs shares you often have to install additional packages. It’s obviously great to have support for both
Working full time on Linux stuff. Hobbyist sysadmin, my long time goal is to bring FOSS to mainstream. From Kuopio, Finland

Jako.social is a Mastodon instance funded using web monetization protocol, which is a privacy respecting way of funding sustainable internet services, so we don't need to sell your data. From Finland, for English and/or Finnish speaking users.
