#FAQ

We pay to Steam, Netflix, Amazon prime, Spotify. But not to Wikipedia, Archive.org, Librivox, Project Gutenberg, for our favourite Linux distro.

The huge asymmetry between corporate and community has not emerged naturally. It is a product of our choices of not supporting community oriented projects.

The short conveniences vs the long-term good. We always chose the former.

In face of surveillance capitalism, we must and must change.

Do you need a DNS server without censorship and for privacy?

@digitalcourage runs a DNS server located in Germany that doesn't log normal user requests:

👉 46.182.19.48
👉 2a02: 2970: 1002: 0: 5054: 8aff: fe12: db49
👉 Encrypted requests DNS-over-TLS

Friendly reminder: "X as a service" is just a misleading corporate euphemism for "pay forever for not owning it".

"Software as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the software".

"Games as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning games".

"Infrastructure as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the hardware".

And so on.

There is no "cloud", it's just other people's computers

Det hadde eigentleg vore bra om Elektronisk Forpost Noreg hadde ein Matrix server!

Det skal eg jaggu høyre med dei om!

Someone "popular" on the security community on Twitter said to never host your own mail server...

Actually, do the opposite.

-Host your own mail server

-Host your own matrix homeserver

-Host your own mastodon instance

-Host your own DNS server if you can

Just do it securely and follow the good practices

Fight back on the centralization of the web.

If Google does not want to listen to my explanations, I will not change the app for them.
The way they are acting is unfair and don't give any trust concerning next publications.
I prefer to spend my time to help people to switch on #FDroid for getting the app.

For those who want to read Cory Doctorow's recent book about surveillance capitalism and don't want to put up with Medium's BS, I created a Wallabag public link.

#Pine64 is not allowed to ship their #pinephone, #pinetab or #pinebookpro to #Russia because of the device encryption of these devices. pine64.org/2020/07/15/july-upd

Make you wonder what arrangements other manufacturers have in place with Russia.

Er eit fødivers/mastodon meetup noko som burde gjeres neste år eller? Kan jo gå ihop med fri kultur når det får dratt seg ordentleg i gong.

Veit ikkje når på året det burde gjeres, men kunne vore ein kul måte å vokse fødivers kulturen. 🤔

Om det ikkje kjem enda ein pandemi lol

I was notified that @tateisu's Mastodon app "Subway Tooter" has received a warning from the Google Play Store citing user-generated content that "incites discrimination".

A Mastodon app does not host or promote any content. The user types the address to connect to. The responsibility of moderating resides with that server. So unless Google is going to drop Chrome, Firefox and Opera from its platform, this is completely out of line.
