Hey! We are happy to announce that Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) starts to use Diaspora more actively. We will forward all our News and posts from other social networks to Diaspora. But we will also actively share content and are happy to engage with people at Diaspora.
Here you can learn more about FSFE. We are charity that empowers users to control technology. Software is deeply involved in all aspects of our lives; and it is important that this technology empowers rather than restricts us. Free Software gives everybody the rights to use, understand, adapt and share software. These rights help support other fundamental freedoms like freedom of speech, press and privacy.

We’re all familiar with the apocryphal Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times.” Well, folks, here we are. Another famous saying, this one by Mark Twain goes, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme.” Right now it seems to be rhyming with the opening verses of some pretty dark poetry.
Like many people, I entered into 2017 feeling anxious about our future. I still am. I think it’s critical that those of us who are alive today do not go down in history as having sat idly by. We must fight to preserve what we believe in, and we need to do it now. I am not a footsoldier, nor am I a natural leader, but I’m trying to do my part in best way I know how: by making sure the true warriors have a tactical advantage. The internet can be an amazing tool for free expression and collective action, but it can be used just as powerfully to surveil, disrupt, and oppress.
That’s why I put together a team of talented and compassionate people to build a secure online platform for activists, organizers, and human rights defenders, and to give it away for free. We call ourselves Gibberfish, Inc. We have a plan and we’re here to see it through, but we need your help.
We have set up a crowdfunding campaign on Generosity.com and we are accepting donations of any amount. Please share this post on social media with everyone you know, and if you can, consider making a contribution. If you know anyone who might need our services, please put them in contact with us via our website at www.gibberfish.org
I’ll leave you all with one more quote, which Benjamin Franklin may or may not have actually said, but it rings true for me nonetheless. “We must all hang together or we shall all hang separately.”
Please spread the word. Thanks.

A big #ILoveFS day thank you to all the hackers working on my favourite #freesoftware / #opensource projects, especially in the social media world (#Diaspora, #Friendica, #Hubzilla) and those working on #Django and #Python - and not forgetting #Ubuntu and everybody else in #Linux.

OSMnx is a Python package for downloading administrative boundary shapes and street networks from #OpenStreetMap. It allows you to easily construct, project, visualize, and analyze complex street networks in Python with NetworkX. You can get a city’s or neighborhood’s #walking, #driving, or #biking #network with a single line of Python code.
Tantek (tantekcom)'s status on Friday, 20-Jan-2017 20:06:45 UTC TantekStarting a modest #IndieWeb#100Daysof Positive Posts #100DoPP, inspired by@aaronpk#100DaysOfIndieWeb#100daysofmusic,@jkphl#100daysof #opensource,@sebsel#100dagen500woorden, and@gRegorLove#100Wordsin 100 Days.
Despite being an optimist, I’m also expecting many (more) things to (start to) go wrong today with the inauguration of the new@POTUS. And since they’re often measured on their first 100 days in office, I’m making a deliberate effort to post at least something positive every day, preferably at the start of the day, as a direct counter.
The basic idea for #100DoPP:
* Every day: post something positive on your own site
* whether something positive you did (ideally)
* a positive / constructive idea or suggestion
* or something positive someone else is doing or suggesting
* Preferably *before* posting anything negative that same day
I’m not sure if I’ve ever had 100 continuous days of posts on my site, so I’m expecting to have to make this a part of my daily routine just to make sure it happens.
@Twitterand other so-called “social media” make it easy to post *something* every day to their silos, so 100 days of that is not interesting in my opinion.
It’s also easier to complain than to be constructive.
Thus despite not being as ambitious ashttps://aaronparecki.com/tag/100daysofindiewebor certainlyhttps://aaronparecki.com/tag/100daysofmusic(which is seriously amazing), I expect 100 days of deliberately positive posts, on one’s own site, to be no small feat. Perhaps a medium feat. ;)
Up for the challenge? Join me and tag your posts #100DoPP.
Up for more? See:https://indieweb.org/100DaysOfIndieWebfor additional 100 Days projects.
