Hello everyone !

📢 🔴 URGENT 🔴

An awesome software is dying, because its #developper has not time anymore to care of it.

It's an alternative of Adobe AfterEffect : Natron (natrongithub.github.io/)

Please, can Mastodon community search for a C++ dev, which want to maintain it ? or search for a company which work with free software ? It's very important.

Boost very appreciated

Thanks in advance for your contribution !

"We, the professors, tutors and lecturers of Dutch art academies declare to stand for academic freedom and independence, now that our essential core values are under attack with the appeal to report ‘indoctrination in education’ by the Renaissance Institute of the Forum voor Democratie (FVD), which was launched last March 12.

March 15, more than 40,000 teachers, including some of our colleagues of Dutch art academies, were protesting at the Malieveld in The Hague for better and more investment in education and against the increasing work pressure. The pressure has elevated dramatically now that autonomy in the classroom is at stake. History demonstrates that threats, intimidation, and documentation of people for who or what they are and believe in can have terrible consequences. We therefore reject the public persecution of teachers and academics as a measure to ‘structurally change and improve education’.

Registration is now open for the Battlemesh v12! It will happen from 8 July to 14 July near Paris.

All information is on battlemesh.org/BattleMeshV12

Don't forget to propose a talk or workshop on your favourite project of the moment :)

I gave a little talk at work today that tries to explain what ActivityPub is; I also turned that talk into a blog post! I blogged!!! johnholdun.com/articles/what-i

I wrote a thing about why I believe the best and most useful decentralized applications are going to be the ones that utilize multiple protocols. I imagine a world where ActivityPub, Dat, and Secure ScuttleButt are all seen as tools in a toolbox rather than as ecosystems, and what kind of amazing software we could build with them outside of the central/corporate paradigm.

Thank you so much for all the help you can give me, love, Pedro

On the upcoming education strike in NL (15/03):

"So what’s wrong with Dutch education? The answer can be found in the policy mix pursued by successive Dutch governments, contriving to simulate an austerity-driven market mechanism in the public sector. Universities and schools are encouraged to compete against each other for students and monies, under emaciated budgets, on the basis of dubious benchmarks and targets. The policy has raised the student/staff ratio in the Netherlands to one among the highest in the OECD – higher than the US, Greece and Italy; the ratio is approaching 20 in the main research universities."

It's a new year! Dennis (de Bel) is back, the window is broken and l'intolerant #18 is out. Enough reasons to come together and have a drink.

This Friday, the 11th of January, from 19:30, Varia opens its doors for some special new year's drinks and some fitting music.

Woodstone Kugelblitz will also be presenting the latest issue of L'Intolerant #18: A Really Useful Cookbook.

Almost everyone is welcome and the entrance is free. However, a voluntary donation of 5 euros will help us replace our window and is greatly appreciated!

See you there!
