A one-sided justice

The complainant in the sexual harassment case against the Chief Justice has not been fairly treated. Institutional bias is visible in the inquiry, which leaves complaints about victimisation unaddressed.

Mobilizon, the upcoming open federated alternative to Facebook Events, has reached its first crowdfunding goal of €20k:

joinmobilizon.org/en/

This covers development of the events software itself.

The next goal, €35k, adds federation through ActivityPub, which will let people on the Fediverse share and join events. This could be crucial to helping many more people leave Facebook 👍

#Alternatives #DeleteFacebook

Just added my id to quicksy.im directory. So now users who know my phone number will be able to discover my xmpp id. I think this is perfect for easy to use and federation. Those who don't want to worry about finding a server and creating an account can use the default server and at the same time people who are about using a different service is free to do it without losing the ability to talk to people who chose convenince.

@librelounge there's an important difference between #Signal and centralized #OpenData hosts like #Wikipedia or #OpenStreetMap. With WP and OSM, the value of their service is in the data. If they shut down, #Archive.org would already have a copy of the data, and anyone who set up a replacement service could import the data, and carry on. In fact, there are already mirrors and forks of Wikipedia data on other services. With Signal, the value is entirely embedded in the servers they run.

Back when the GNU project was starting, among the first things they rewrote as Free Software were:
- text editor / IDE (Emacs)
- assembler, linker, and compiler
- make

IOW, they made tools that they needed to further develop Free Software without relying on proprietary tools.

They wanted their project to be self-hosting.

Nowadays, we have more free software than ever, but we develop it using github and Discord...

We are going to travel across Kerala (possibly across India if we get support) promoting federated social media services like and . We are going to call it . We have done a similar campaign in the past called . This time we are expanding the scope.

@kev

I have never had to make this choice with whatsapp but with other programs. What it came down to with me was priority. Privacy was a priority for me. Most people are sheep who don't care. If I were to pick my software based on what friends and family used for software then I may as well give up any desire for privacy right then and there. This may not help you but the TLDR is do what is right for you not for others.
