#freesoftware #opensource

Thank you, Audrey!

Also: in early 2016 I rounded up posts about structural imbalances in funding and use of FLOSS:

Anyone knows of a EU based association or something that provides a newsletters-like mailing service but that doesnt do tracking etc? Asking for We need to find an alternative to RSS/Atom.

¡Gentes del Fediverso, necesito vuestra ayuda!

¿Conocéis proyectos de soberanía tecnológica, implementación de software libre ... en América Latina que provengan de los movimientos sociales?

Es para ver cómo se han llevado a cabo y si las estrategias pueden usarse en otros lugares.

Gracias, amores.

We've been selected with c0d3 p03try (@flordefuego and @rapofran) to present a performance on the International Conference on Live Coding (ICLC). The problem is there are no funds to travel, so if anyone knows of any scholarship it would be really helpful cause we have no money to travel and it would be for us such an opportunity to assist :(


Nos seleccionaron con c0d3 p03try para participar de la ICLC que será en Irlanda pero no tenemos dinero para viajar, si alguien sabe de alguna beca a la que podamos aplicar seria de mucha ayuda, gracias!

It's frustrating when young people are so conservative about techniques. The school system often pushes a certain kind of conformity and from the other side the job market often instills the idea that one needs to have "skills" that can be reduced to standardized techniques. For me that means that a lot of 19-year-olds think I'm a crazy heretic when I suggest that you can make a compelling image without using a particular product from the Adobe Corporation.

Question to #Mastodon #Sysadmin :

Our Mastodon backup is very huge (weekly master is near 250 Gb), even if "tootctl media remove" command keeps only 15 last days.

Is there any folder(s) we could exclude from backup (cache data or media which could be retrieved after a restoration) ?

Thanks for your help

everything can be browsed, downloaded, keeped offline.
