People around the world use sites that rely on proprietary JavaScript - often without realizing it. Nonfree JavaScript subjugates users in the same way as any piece of proprietary software. We should reject it. fsf.org/campaigns/freejs

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.

The European Parliament has proposed AND voted in favour of forcing big tech companies to adhere to open standards! 🎉
I can't wait to see a mass exodus as people finally #deletefacebook en masse.

When I see "we care about your privacy" I get a weird creepy vibe from it.

Like, why? Why the hell do you care about my privacy? What business of yours is my privacy?

Why don't you go ahead and care about something else? My privacy was just fine before you started "caring" for it.

Wow, #fosdem2022 has a dedicated track for FOSS on mobile devices: fosdem.org/2022/schedule/track

If you are interested in #linuxphones you should check out the schedule. There's so much going on in the #linuxphone space right now. 😎

I feel like @postmarketOS or @danctnix is the future for me (still running a de-googled android right now though).

What if a government passed a bill enshrining software freedom, and free software principles, into law?

I've been informed that the state of New Hampshire (in USA) is considering passing this bill:

gencourt.state.nh.us/bill_stat

My own country (United Kingdom) could take a leaf out of NH's book.

(I said earlier that it had passed the bill, but I was wrong. I was corrected: it's a reading, the bill isn't actually passed yet)

NFTs are like buying an acre of the moon or paying to "name" a star.

You never actually do either of those things, and when the company behind them goes bust, there's no longer any record of you not doing those things either.
