Even Apache Software Found. doesn't want to run their own git infrastructure 😞 #freesoftware
Not huge #IRC fan myself, but I really really hope #Mozilla chooses #freesoftware as its official replacement. They kickstarted Talk as a Disqus competitor (now that's with Vox Media); it'd be great if one of the more promising tools would get a 2y funding through them as well. Unfortunately the open messenger landscape is so fractured and immature atm, that I'm a bit pessimistic overall 😕
I just learned that #Mozilla will abandon #IRC. In general I think it is a good move to look for something more modern. I'm curious what they will chose at the end. For me the three main qualities would be: #free (aka Free Software), #decentralized & #open (aka open protocols) http://exple.tive.org/blarg/2019/04/26/synchronous-text/
This week I'd like to name #Jitsi Meet, a nice opensource videoconference tool, available via browser, on mobile and there's a desktop (Electron) app as well: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet-electron
You can use Jitsi Meet or set up your own Jitsi server. The best part is that you don't need an account to create or join a conference.
Who would you like to boost for #NameAndFame Friday?

Wie verwaltet ihr eure Fotosammlung? Spricht etwas gegen Adobe Bridge? Die so geänderten Metadaten können von anderen Programmen wie Xnview ausgelesen werden und die Arbeit ist nicht umsonst, sobald AB eingestampft wird oder kostenpflichtig wird. Übersehe ich einen gravierenden Nachteil? #foto #verwalten #adobe #hilfe #frage

Does anyone have experience/reasoned opinion on #SOLID?
Interesting Internet-Draft: MASQUE – think "VPN over HTTPS", undetectable, unblockable.
A colleague commented my switch from Postman to Insomnia with: “For me, Postman is close to perfect software.“ — And I would almost agree, it’s doing its job pretty well. But for me the marketing-first website of PM and the closed development really started to bother me. Insomnia may not be as rock-solid yet (although I haven’t found any show-stoppers in my daily work) and I wish it had a larger group of contributors, but it freed me from “vendor lock-in fear” and that alone makes it worth it.
