Alright, let's play a game.

Boosts appreciated, the wider the reach, the more useful the responses.

Please suggest to me 1 - 5 channels on peertube, vemio, or youtube with under 1000 subscribers, that are producing interesting or worthwhile content.

Sketches and jokes! Video Essays! Concert films! You name it.

Show me your favorite works from small creators. I'm going to do a thing to highlight some of them.

Is a JingOS Linux Phone Coming? This Video Hints at the Possibility

I don’t have an awful lot of information extra to the video you see above, but I couldn’t not share it once I’d seen it as JingOS is one of the more exciting projects in :sys_more_orange:

Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.

Okay I tried Brave for, like, two months. Tonight, I got into a hardcore fight with it because it decided that I had changed networks and absolutely refused to connect to any website.

Every other browser on my computer proved that I had a working Internet connection. None of the other browsers were having an issue.

So hello, I'm back on Firefox. Every time I try another browser, I'm back on Firefox in less than three months.

My only complaint: I wish Mozilla loved Firefox as much as I do.

Fediverse, do you know a technical #documentation writer, around these parts?

If you are one, could I DM you and ask you some questions about which path you took to get there, what the work is like, and so on?

Boosts are welcome.

When you're talking about Linux, it's okay to say that it's "open source".

It's okay to say that it's "free software".

It's okay to call it "GNU/Linux", "Linux", or to mess up its name.

It's okay to refer to it as "the one with the friendly penguin".

Part of RMS' legacy has been an incessant obsession with terminology and pedantry, overshadowing far more important shared objectives which are fundamentally emancipatory in nature.

Pedantry is not activism; it is alienating, not emancipatory.
