So, I've been thinking. And you're all right. Neutral will never bring on change.

#FLOSS is riddled with the "we must stay neutral" mentality, this creates a problem in this space, it simply isn't safe for minorities to participate in a lot of the conversations.

This means being neutral isn't neutral at all.

Who's onboard to work on FLOSS from an anti-racist, intersectional feminist perspective?
 
Just discovered CryptPad via the FLOSS Weekly podcast. Basically, Google docs without privacy concerns.

CryptPad in their own words:

"CryptPad is a private-by-design alternative to popular office tools and cloud services. All the content stored on CryptPad is encrypted before being sent, which means nobody can access your data unless you give them the keys (not even us)."

It's also Free software.

Better still CryptPad is on the Fediverse:

As it's the 10th anniversary of Minecraft, a reminder that there's a free open alternative called Minetest:

https://www.minetest.net/

You can follow it on the Fediverse at:

@Minetest

It has many game modes including online multiplayer servers.

Hey developers & ActivityPub enthusiasts!

@GetTogetherComm is a free open alternative to MeetUp.com.

The lead developer needs help with implementing federation, either coding or better documentation about ActivityPub.

There's an open issue for it here:

https://github.com/GetTogetherComm/GetTogether/issues/60

There's been discussion but no code contributions yet.

Can you help?

(It would be *so* cool to get this kind of service federated, imagine every town having its own instance :blobaww: )

We've decided to remove all Google Analytics tracking from the site. Less tracking = happier users.

Now only we know what weird things you're searching the forums for...

IBM buys RedHat for $30 billion. This value was mostly created by the labor of volunteer, un- or underpaid developers of Free/Libre/Open Source software who will not see a dime of IBM's money. There need to be discussions of economic flaws in the FLOSS development/distribution model.

The free libre open source analytics software Matomo (formerly known as Piwik) is now on the fediverse:

@Matomo

They also have a website:

https://matomo.org/

The software costs nothing if you self-host, and they also offer a paid hosted option for people who prefer it.

Unlike Google Analytics, Matomo's data stays entirely on the site that uses it. No one else has access to it, so there's no way for it to be aggregated across many sites.

Do you want to help shape open federated alternatives like @pixelfed, @prismo , @anfora and @funkwhale ?

You can do so very easily at:

https://socialhub.network/

It's a set of forums where anyone can give feedback and ideas for these projects directly to the developers. You don't need to be a coder to take part.

Lesser known #SysAdmin tools for everyone.

Midnight Commander or MC

A twin pane, curses based file manager for use in the terminal.

Probably, the most powerful FM available, anywhere.

* filesystem bookmarks
* access remote systems using SSH
* dive into .zip, tar, DEB, JAR etc. using VFS
* run commands in a sub-shell without leaving MC
* built-in editor & viewer or configure your own
* hotkeys
* completely configurable
* and lots more
