Fight Against

"Digital Restrictions Management is the practice of imposing technological restrictions that control what users can do with digital media. When a program is designed to prevent you from copying or sharing a song, reading an ebook on another device, or playing a single-player game without an Internet connection, you are being restricted by DRM. In other words, DRM creates a damaged good; it prevents you from doing what would be possible without it."

Yes, The name matters. It will always remind us how and why everything started. Use the term GNU/Linux instead of "Linux" .

I realized that running a 2010 single-core celeron laptop salvaged from the trash with #Debian for about a week now today has inadvertently signed me up to the #oldcomputerchallenge. I think I will be documenting some of my findings sometime soon in another blogpost.

Oh and due to overwhelming demand I've set up a Liberapay account. If any of you wants to support my #Emacs, #Scheme or other hacks, the link is in my bio.

I don't understand this hostility I'm seeing around Gargon just because he makes money based on donations, the most innocent of income models.

People pay him because they want to- they're not obligated to in any way, and he's not even offering an exchange.

He makes money. So what? What's the problem with that?

Folks who are angry about Gargon making money- help me understand your feelings/logic.

copyright politics 

I think many people

a) don't get it, that copyright is *automatic*

b) conflate licensing with copyright

c) shoot the messenger, as if by talking about licensing we're to *blame* for making things messy

instead, they were *already* messy

My thoughts on the Mastodon iOS app and the frustrations within with a side of our long standing problems with Gargron.

Starfish :emacs: :trisquel: boosted

And as I said, the #iOS app is open source. I’ll request a Crowdin project soon. However, just because it’s open source doesn’t mean that we’ll accept any change through PRs. If you want to be sure, contact me first.
