We just published CryptPad 2.14.0, codenamed Opossum. Check out the release notes on GitHub: github.com/xwiki-labs/cryptpad and try it on cryptpad.fr !

@switchingsocial Not sure if you already had CryptPad, a zero-knowlege-server-side service that does text-pads (like Etherpad, but actively developed) for code (with syntax highlighting) and formatted text, polls (similar to doodle), simple sketches, and presentations.

It's opensource, you can self-host it and even server admins cannot see any content.


The Chaos Computer Club Vienna @c3wien hosts a public instance.

Probably said many times, but I don't think the proposed #Fediverse logo is a good idea. Looks like a #pentagram to me.

Does anyone know where to submit another proposal?

#Fairphone is a smartphone manufacturer that goes to great lengths to be as ethical as possible.

They try to source raw materials from ethical sources as far as possible, and their phones are modular: if a component breaks, you can replace it yourself without special tools.

The phone's operating system can also be replaced.

Their website is:
