I bought a dozen of "Original USB Condom"s. If anyone is interested I sell some for 8€ + shipping (I'm no earning from this); I'm based in Italy.
Time to update my #OpenHUB profile: my patch for pam_pkcs11 got merged!
"Can we all please stop using Medium now?"
Good post by @firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you really must use Medium, publish the post first on your own blog and then use "Import a story" feature within Medium to post it there too. You get best of both worlds that way.
@kromonos hi! a nsa.li xmpp user can't send me any file. He's using ChatSecure. Did we miss anything? He does receive my files (I use my own server).
France's largest free software organisation @Framasoft has just launched a crowdfunding campaign for an open federated events tool, Mobilizon:
Mobilizon would replace Facebook Events and similar closed services.
It would use ActivityPub, so people would be able to organise events on the Fediverse.
You can also follow its Mastodon account here:
Israeli espionage firm hacks WhatsApp. Can install spyware with missed call.
My advice: dump WhatsApp today and start using Wire (https://wire.com/en/products/personal-secure-messenger/). Tell your friends and family to do the same. (It’s a simple, free download on all app stores. Easy to use, doesn’t require your phone number, and their business model is based on charging for commercial use and for pro accounts.)

I've been part of a LUG before (#SaLUG!), but unfortunately it's almost dead by now and 200 km away from my current city.
My university city also had a LUG (#LUGbari) which closed the year after I joined the university. Some fellows created a FSFE local group which unfortunately is actually inactive and made something like 3 events in about 8 years.
The nearest city also had a LUG (#MurgiaLUG) about 6 years ago.
I want to start local meetings about #FLOSS. I'm pretty sure people will join me; even if just one person, it would already be a reason to start this.
Hey, you know how #Wire has been promising for a long time to allow federation? Looks like they're working on it!
In the latest changelog you can read: "The Android Wire client can now be run against a private server."

I just learned that #Mozilla will abandon #IRC. In general I think it is a good move to look for something more modern. I'm curious what they will chose at the end. For me the three main qualities would be: #free (aka Free Software), #decentralized & #open (aka open protocols) http://exple.tive.org/blarg/2019/04/26/synchronous-text/
