@nitox I've been an environmentalist longer than I've been a Bitcoiner and I firmly believe can be part of the solution of . One of the big driving forces for our environmental issues are the consumption economy, an economy of evergrowing corporations and unlimited borrowing, and a political environment of big monopolies protected by politics through lobbying.
Bitcoin solves the former and while doing that, it reduces the power of government, taking a shot at the latter.

The #XMPP Standards Foundation has been selected as a mentoring organization for this years #Google #Summer of Code!

5% of every block reward has to go to one of four addresses. BCash devs are mad con artists.

In , we have too, but there are no adults involved. Members are 6-18yo and leaders are 18 and older, usually not exceeding 25yo.

Since no adults are involved in the organisation at all, it's a great way for youngsters to experience responsibility and independence!

Anyone with some experience? I added some miniscript-related commands to . Anyone feel like testing out how they feel UX-wise?

There is a new project to make a #FLOSS DuoLingo alternative!

Would love to figure out how to have the social aspects federated!

What is some convenient scripting system one can replace with? I feel like writing bash is so impossibly error-prone that it should have been banned from the internet for a long time. I'd even prefer to do something or so. But even is probably more convenient.

Please make #PineTab and #PinePhone actually usable and reliable. I know people like toys with which to experiment and hack. But the world needs a real Linux phone now. Yes, I mean a “daily driver”. It’s time.

Storm is raging over right now. Happy I'm safe inside the house, but I'm doubtful my flight tomorrow morning will be on time...

I just learned that every #riseup email address comes with a #xmpp account by default! same name and password too!

Big conferences like FOSDEM should start hosting PeerTube instances instead of depending on mirrors.

As long as I live, I will never understand how this alone wasn’t the end of it.

@stevenroose @dimitrisk Check out Transportr!

Unfortunately it doesn't have any information for me here, but I blame the local transit companies for not making their GTFS feeds publicly accessible.

In light of the Summit and . IMO the biggest thing XMPP is missing is a name. "Normies" won't use an acronym as complicated as XMPP. And they need a way to ask "if others are *on it*". Without a name, it can never catch on.
So either we re-adopt in full (fuck Cisco) or we need a new name for "IM over XMPP".
