Fact: If you pay for Spotify, a portion of your subscription fee gets allocated to artists YOU DON'T EVEN LISTEN TO.

Another fact: It takes 3000 - 5000 streams *per hour* for an artist to make the equivalent of the California minimum wage.

To avoid straining your eyes when you're continuously working, follow the 20-20-20 rule :

After 20 minutes of work,
Look at something 20 minutes away,
Then spend 20 years in the forest.

- my on screen keyboard doesn't appear on the lock screen
- there's apparently no screen reader installed by default on Debian 11
- searching for screen reader in Discover (the software store) comes up with a comic book reader and a PDF reader for dual screen presentations
- and yet, searching for orca comes up with the screen reader

We think to use the new version of #Fedilab only for softwares using the "mastodon API" (Pleroma, Pixelfed, Friendica).
For #Peertube, we will keep working on the dedicated app.

Thus, that will allow us to extend endpoints for softwares using the Mastodon API like Pleroma and Pixelfed.

Adding a new API, will be done through a new app.

Time for a new open source variety: @opensourceseeds is crowdfunding the breeding and cultivation of a new rye variety: startnext.com/roggen

From the teaser: "#OpenSourceSeeds supports breeders in the development of new and sustainable varieties of our crops. An important work that often takes many years and cannot be financially managed by small, independent companies. With this project, for the first time, we can enable the breeding of a new rye variety together as a community. Let's invest directly in the future of organic farming!"
