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.

Yes, I have ported #Wayland (along with a few Weston clients and wl-clipboard) to the #Hurd (that's what I wrote the epoll server for!)

I've also ported Owl, my Cocoa Wayland compositor, from OS X to the Hurd using GNUstep.

Here's a screenshot of weston-terminal and weston-flower, running on Owl on GNUstep on Hurd, with X forwarded from a QEMU VM via SSH.

The irony of banning #TikTok because they "may" hand over to the Chinese government during a time when the US is actively trying to end #encryption (because they can't see your data) is a bit much to take...

#Privacy is a fundamental human right, and invasion of privacy through apps like TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, etc is the real problem from US companies and beyond.
