Now that i have your attention,
don't be a dick, and stop using third party services from the big tech companies.

It is the modern tool to enrich rich people, and to make poor people even poorer (is "poorer" correct lmao?)

@TheMainOne was mentioned today in one of @christitus 's videos. This is a very remarkable and outstanding feat so I would like to congratulate him.

The r/FOSSDroid community may benefit from a centralized list of #OpenSource #Android apps. While closed-source services continue to plague the ecosystem, we NEED to ensure that the people have the power, instead of greedy companies.

If you would like to see this happen, please updoot the post:

#FOSS = ❤️

Apparently today the US President is threatening to shut down Companies that don't agree with him.

Fortunately for us, distributed networks like make that pretty difficult for dictators to do.

That's how the Librem 5 performs with all the GPU acceleration in place :) @purism #librem5 #phosh

Replacing Digital Capitalism with Digital Socialism

"Unfortunately, current legislative proposals by US legal scholars and Congress promote a capitalist model where "many Facebooks and Twitters" compete to capture data and user attention. This will not solve our problems.

... we cannot fix social media with corporate owners, proprietary technology, centralised clouds, and market competition. The master's tools will never dismantle the master's house.

A genuine solution requires digital socialism: a decentralised social media commons based on free and open-source technology, supported by laws and the public purse. The foundation is already set, but a popular movement is needed to see it through."

@tindall my response to this is that the only response we can safely make is to either deny them outright, and tell their developers to fuck off

or (and possibly doing this anyway) take their "extensions" and integrate them even further, with even more functionality, on the linux desktop

microsoft wants to put a gpu shim in the linux kernel so they can port directx12, but only to work in WSL2, and only with compute or offscreen render?

cool. let's take their code and rework it to use drm as a backend, implement swapchain stuff to get it rendering to display, install their userland gpu driver and, and figure out how to make wine/proton use the real directx12 software stack

NSA Prism program taps in to user data of Apple, Google and others.

The NSA access is part of a previously undisclosed program called Prism, which allows officials to collect material including search history, the content of emails, file transfers and live chats, the document says.

The time to remove these services from your life is NOW. Restore the open web, and help remove these soulless companies from the web.
