Seems like an interesting agglom of tools

There was a Too Little Not Enough podcast about research aggregation a while back, on the very subject of the lack of a suitable extendable tool.

Would be curious to survey the methods people on Mastodon use use to sort/organise/categorise/ writing and research.

First guided tour of the *just opened* di.versions.space online exhibition is happening ... Now !

So suddenly there’s a lot of attention around email and it’s exposing how many people in the web community still use Gmail. Like actually trust all your personal information and communication (and that of your potentially marginalised or vulnerable contacts) with Google. 🤮

There are a lot of hard problems and lack of alternatives when it comes to rights-respecting technology. But email (as imperfect as it is) has a fair few affordable alternative providers. Small change, big difference.

Old news but totally missed it: Mike Skinner to be releasing a full-of-features mixtape in July. Release early July :)

There will be Protests on 6th June around Ireland organised by @masi_movement_askylum_seekers and @blackprideire

imagine if windows was like android, and microsoft released a new windows version but you had to wait several months for dell/hp/acer/whatever to update their weird windows build with shitty custom theming and candy crush permanently installed, but even when dell finally updated their windows build from a 6 month old version to a 3 month old version, you don't get it straight away because your laptop is a t-mobile dell so you have to wait even longer, and after two years one of microsoft or dell or t-mobile say "fuck it" and just stop supplying upgrades and you're stuck on Windows 10 October 2015 Edition for all eternity

Hello everyone. Please note that we have decided to postpone the Libre Graphics Meeting in Rennes to 2021.

For this year still, we are evaluating the possibility to make an online event, as some have expressed interest in doing so.

Stay tuned. Stay safe.

Just overheard someone say : "Pinterest, my nemisis !"

I've just finished a set of screencasts on the Desktop Publishing tool Scribus for my students.

The program has come quite a long way since I last used it, it is really great to have a strong canvas alternative.

If anything, the lockdown has been a great opportunity to showcase free and libre open source software alternatives to my students and collegues.

Can post links when transcoding is finished, if there is any interest.
