Incredibly exciting to get official confirmation that Germany's health service (@firstname.lastname@example.org) has standardised on Matrix for secure decentralised communications, targeting all 150,000 healthcare organisations in Germany(!!!) 🤯 Read all about it at https://matrix.org/blog/2021/07/21/germanys-national-healthcare-system-adopts-matrix 💉🇩🇪🚀
andrew lee just seized over 700 channels on freenode because they mentioned libera.chat in their topic.
This includes projects like openbsd, wikimedia, FOSDEM, etc.
https://archive.is/uHw1g shows 720 channels that match what is being checked.
here's an example log: https://gist.github.com/pushcx/ab2a1d5b1d18e964c581ef18ccb3a79f
boost this if you care about foss in any way.
Home alone as the girlfriend is in her home country for a month. Is this the time I can make a dent in my 162 episode, 117 hour long #podcast queue?
Clearview's photo database has been declared illegal in the EU & Canada. Yet, the real scandal about Clearview still stands: Individuals must opt out of data abuse - even though they never gave consent. Here we explain how to opt out: https://tutanota.com/blog/posts/clearview-scandal-opt-out #Fight4Privacy 💪😎
Ever since breaking my ankle at the beginning of September, I have been waaaay less mobile. Only by now am I (almost) capable of (slowly) walking again without crutches.
Unexpected(?) side effect: I have barely edited #openstreetmap during this time. Planning and surveying routes during runs is a much larger factor for me than I thought.
Outside of the capital region in the #Philippines , there are some areas that are getting a lot of eyeballs, but has not been updated for at least two years.
How is it like in your neighbourhood?
Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦♂️
PRE 👏 TTY 👏 PLEASE
And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)
Boost if I'm right.
More and more schools in Germany chose Matrix. After Schleswig-Holstein and the "HPI Schul-Cloud" now Nordrhein-Westfalen starts to offer a Matrix based messenger to all schools. Yes, it is possible to build digital infrastructure for schools with Free Software and Open Standards.

I think Google should save everyone a lot of time and effort and jump straight to discontinuing new services:
"We are proud to announce that Google Kitchen Tools will no longer be available on Sep 1st 2020, nor has it ever been available. Should you wish to export your Google Kitchen Tools data, you should be aware that there is no data, as Google Kitchen Tools has never existed.
The Google Kitchen Tools Team"
Sudden discovery that OCaml doesn't have just a `==` operator (identity), but also a `=` operator (equality).
That bug took longer to solve than I care to admit and all it was about was incorrect string comparison.
If someone tells you that you'll "pick it up as you go" and to "not spend too much time reading through basics" when you're dropped into a project in an unfamiliar programming language, whack'm. Whack'm hard.
I wish every #OpenStreetMap contributor knew this:
"note" is for other contributors
(e.g. The name looks weird but it really is the true name of this POI; or This is a temporary bus stop)
"description" is for people using the map
(e.g. "This shop sells wedding decor, accessories and clothing")
Apparently, iD now correctly explains the difference. 👍
