looking for work 

Nothing in the magic money app (email) except stuff I don't wanna do/am no longer qualified for (QA, Java), or spam for stuff I can't do (designer). Have to update LinkedIn and trawl that mess again.

Unless someone knows of a nice coding #job?

1. #Scheme
2. #Javascript front or back-end
3. #Python
4. #ObjectiveC (I'm not doing Swift)

Or, if you want me to keep doing indie #gamedev, a bunch of patrons would be awesome:

@BartG95 The Tor browser is much safer though, using regular Firefox over the onion router is not quite the same.

This recommendation is only good if the goal is not to enjoy better privacy.

If this is not you, I would still appreciate if you shared.

Hello all. I am interested in doing a meetup/panel/virtual-conference for religious people in the tech field. I want to discuss how religion impacts your working with tech and how the tech community treats you as a religious person. I am interested in very religious people (1/2)

Why systemd is often told as a badguy?

I worry about the possible discontinuation of physical cash in the post-covid world, and the effects that will have. The centralisation of the economy combined with the fully transparent and auditable citizen.

Bitcoin is not a practical substitute. The last time I looked gnu Taler is still not there, and the more I think about it the less likely that model seems to succeed. i.e. Asking banks, the people with wealth, for permission so that people without wealth can have a bit more autonomy and a bit less scrutiny. A bit more margin. A bit less of the boot on their neck.

Any strategy which relies upon the permission, benevolence or good judgement of the wealthy is likely to be a failure. They want to maintain or increase their control, not reduce it.

@snopyta are you getting enough funding to keep the project going?
Email became Gmail, usenet became reddit, blog replies became facebook and Medium, pingbacks became twitter, squid became Cloudflare, even gnutella became The Pirate Bay

all the remaining developers at Mozilla should unionize, demand removal of the CEO, and demand collective governance

I just donated to #GNOME

it's not much, it's what I can do

In order to keep our software free, we need to support it with money, not just with chat

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.

Mozilla Google budget screaming 

Something is just wrong here... Mozilla just extended its deal with Google (making it the numero uno search engine) for something like 400 million dollars PER YEAR. For the next three years.

That is 1.2 BILLION dollars from 2020 to 2023.

If you cannot run a freaking NON-PROFIT on 400 MILLION dollars PER YEAR that means:

a) You are paying your executives too much.
b) You don't know how to manage a non-profit.
c) All of the above.

Hello from first ever Pleroma, and so Fediverse instance, running on Russian MCST Elbrus CPU.

Instance is running in testing mode and will die someday. Let this post federate further so the history will never be forgotten. :)
