The only part that is surprising about Stallman's resignation is why he was tolerated for such a long time.
People have been bringing this up for years and privileged people chose not to listen.
I'm moving to Greece in a few months so I'm going to try and ultralearn Greek. As a first step I've created a little tool to help me learn the alphabet. Meet Foni: https://foni.oraklu.com/
Apparently, the TLS certificate Deutsche Bahn used internally for their hotspot portal on their trains has expired.. and they’re unable to update it remotely, because the certificate for their maintenance portal has also expired 🙈

I am glad people are talking about the rms stuff over here and not just on twitter. I hope we an all have a more nuanced discussion about the future of something that is very important not just for the fediverse but for the future of our civilization. By that I mean the health of the “free culture” movement. Having someone as careless with their words as rms is seems to be counter to that. Regardless of their place in history and what they have achieved.

Open Call for contributions
Eclectic Tech Carnival 2019
8 - 13 October in Athens, Greece
Halt and Catch Fire
/ETC is a gathering of feminists, who critically use/study/share/improve everyday information technologies in the context of the free software and open hardware movements.
We strongly believe that an empowering event is one in which everyone actively contributes to its realization. For this reason, we would love to receive plenty of suggestions for activities, presentations, workshops etcetera.
We invite you, women and FNTI persons (females, non-binaries, trans, intersexuals) to kindly submit your proposal by Monday, 2 September 2019, at whatever time zone is comfortable for you.
Please send an email to this address:
Looking forward to seeing you in Athens!

Also, I think I have a fun idea for a game for #js13k and the challenge will really be staying under 13kb this time
hey y'all remember when I encoded the hit film Hackers (1995) in 8M? and how it was entirely unrecognizable, low resolution, low framerate, and had no audio?
well, since then, Mastodon has upped its media limit to 40M
so, I present to you: Hackers (1995) in 40M, with sound, at 24FPS and full resolution! encoded with state-of-the-art tools and codecs for your viewing pleasure
I'm really bad at writing my own bio.
