The HOPE 2020 Schedule is up!
AFAIK it's free to attend, with some events (workshops) limited in live participation paying attendees who bought tickets before the pandemic, but you should be able to watch the talks at the very least.
I know there's a lot of fear from some of my friends about HOPE and it's scary image, but I encourage everyone to watch and participate.
Please, Americans, if you do nothing else today, then please take action against EARN-IT.
We discussed it on the show, but it would destroy online privacy, crypto, etc. This is no joke. Please, take action TODAY as it goes up for a vote July 2nd.
If you love Free Software or Privacy, this bill has to die!
I want to do a few @librelounge episodes on gender and Free Software.
I'd love to talk to female identifying and or trans folks, especially if you're working on something cool. Please talk to me!
How do we make Free Software more approachable, easier to use and more effective? That is the discipline of User Experience design.
Do you like conversations about esoteric topics that seem to take on a life of their own?
How about discussion about real vs virtual life, gender identity and pronouns, and other Fediverse fueled ideas?
Then you're going to love the latest episode of Libre Lounge!
@librelounge @emacsen @cwebber FYI for all of the people who correctly are worried about #Zoom privacy, an awesome org has given us access to their BigBlueButton
instance and recording setup for the Summit.
It's still a bit of an experiment, and we need your support. https://flattenthecurve.tech/register
🎙️Over the last month I had the honor to be invited to two podcasts ( @librelounge in English and @lelibreauquotidien in French). I wrote a blog-post with the links to listen them here : https://www.davidrevoy.com/article771/podcasts-interviews
On this episode of Libre Lounge, @cwebber and @emacsen sit down with award winning artist @davidrevoy to talk about his is webcomic series Pepper and Carrot, the Sintel film, and how he started his Free Software/Free Culture journey.
I wrote a little blog post on why we in the Free Software movement need to have understanding, love and outstretched arms:
@librelounge @emacsen @cwebber @diggity That conversation was sobering for me, and I mean that in a good way. Portions of it display a road map from the present into the very possible future and its potholes for freedom, privacy, and frankly our general well-being; importantly to me it lays out some ways we could address them. I liked the makerspace and decentralized communications solutions.
Overall, thank you.
