Golang is unusual because in most languages the type system tells you when you made a mistake, but in Golang the type system tells you when Rob Pike made a mistake.

So Google detests the AGPL license: going as far as to demand this:

"Do not install AGPL-licensed programs on your workstation, Google-issued laptop, or Google-issued phone without explicit authorization from the Open Source Programs Office."

So to degooglify the internet everyone should choose AGPL for open source projects :)

@Gargron I am glad to see yet another proof of how companies and investors create value everyday.

Hahahaahahaha holy shit. Hiveway is a fork of Mastodon with blockchain slapped on top, selling ICO tokens, and John McAfee is involved. Wew lad

Ohje, kein Gutenberg-Projekt für Deutschland mehr, Geo-IP-Blocking.

Was passiert ist: Der S.Fischer-Verlag hat die Stiftung hinter (die in den US gemeinfreie Bücher in einer Vielzahl von Formaten von txt bis epub publizieren) verklagt. Auf Gutenberg lagen 18 Texte von Döblin, Heinrich & Thomas Mann. In den USA gemeinfrei, weil schon 50 Jahre publiziert, in Deutschland nicht, weil die Autoren noch nicht 70 Jahre tot sind. Die Klage wurde vor dem LG Frankfurt aufgebracht. >>>

Russland hat die erste Rate seines Jahresbeitrags für den Europarat nicht gezahlt. Das bestätigte der Sprecher der Straßburger Organisation, Daniel Höltgen, am Donnerstag der Deutschen Presse-Agentur. Am Mittwoch war die Frist für die Zahlung abgelaufen. Damit droht dem Europarat nun ein gravierender finanzieller Engpass. Die internationale Organisation hat zur Aufgabe, über die Menschenrechte in den 47 Mitgliedstaaten zu wachen.

Very happy to announce the release of Fork Awesome 1.0. A fork of the iconic font and CSS toolkit known as Font Awesome.

With the release of this fork, you'll now find icons for open source projects such as #Mastodon, #Peertube, #Diaspora, #Scuttlebutt, etc.

We've hopefully also made the process of contributing a lot more easier.

Thx to @KnowPresent & @n8 for the support.

I don't think its that hard of a decision. Nazis advocate for genocide, and they gaslight non-nazis and abuse your value of free speech to normalize their hate in public conversations. They contort the idea of free speech into meaning that everyone should give them a platform, which is definitely not how it works.

Nazis aren't just speaking their mind, they're actively trying to manipulate people.

#Plasma 5.12 is out:

Apart from performance and stability improvements, new features include spring-loaded folder views, improved Wayland support, optional global menus, interactive notifications, and quite a few more.

@vinzv Hatte @tuxedocomputers nicht mal openSUSE als vorinstalliertes OS angeboten?

Wow, isn't this great?! Yesterday Matrix got $5M and today FSF got ~$1M in donations. I hope they spend this money wisely. They both totally deserve it :)
