Executive director of @gnome issues statement about and issue:

"I feel we can’t continue to have a formal association with the FSF or the GNU project when its main voice in the world is saying things that hurt this aim."

Show thread

The fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom. Our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. RMS does not speak for these values.

"I have never felt that anything really mattered but the satisfaction of knowing that you stood for the things in which you believed and had done the very best you could."

- Eleanor Roosevelt


A busy weekend.

Attached is my post to the member forum on Friday.

Enough is enough.

It's long past time the board exercised their duty under Article VI Section 7 of the bylaws and vote him out. I understand that they have tried before but failed. But by now, his behavior is doing serious harm to the public interest the public charity is chartered to support.

Many other folks have also cancelled their memberships over the weekend.

Stallman, FSF, MIT, Epstein, Minsky 

#Stallman and to some extent the structural constitution of the #GNU project and the #FSF that solely revolves around #rms' vision of the world and societyβ€”with absolutely no room for other opinionsβ€”has always been problematic. It's indeed not new at all. It has overshadowed and prevented the development of free software to be more culturally diverse and a more politicised effort. Similarly, his dogmatic attitude has created throughout the years a situation where free software communities are having a hard time to be self critical and are effectively unable to evaluate the nature of their discourse. Ultimately, there has been increasing cognitive dissonance between the values they believe sharing and their actions, with sometimes quite aggressive response to even the slightest form of criticism and critique of anything related to software/user freedom. At best, criticism is deflected by tweaking the terminology and the language used, and if needed new definitions of words are created to defuse problematic statements. Hopefully these kind of exposures and open discussions will help move forward work on software and cultural freedom, in general, and not lead to complete implosion.

List of shame with 0ver projects (long lasting 0.x version) πŸ˜‚

Where can I get a device (no mobile service) in the that I could test, play around with and write a report about? By the way, is there a keyboard (similar to ) and/or touch screen version?

Hmmm, I'm hearing elementary is moving their blog from Medium to GitHub Pages.

I think that's a big improvement, GitHub Pages (and it's underlying Jekyll static-site-generator) is a nice and understated service. I'll probably continue using Jekyll once I've switched to a homeserver.

Do you want to see spam and hate speech off the Fediverse? Think there must be a better way than continuing to click Mute and Block all the time?

On this episode of Libre Lounge, Chris and Serge talk about the work they're doing to protect the Fediverse from Spam, Scams and Online Harasment.

Here's how I'm billing Equifax for 10 hours of my time.
