As an #opensource contributor I approach licensing of my software from the perspective of fairness to the software authors, community, users, & derivative work developers. This post lays out why the Mozilla Public License (MPL) is my favorite. #FOSS…

Having fun playing with my de-Googled (more) environmentally friendly Teracube phone that arrived yesterday thanks to E Foundation and the Android-based e/os/ @myTeracube @e_mydata . #linux #FOSS #SurveillanceCapitalism

I own a Samsung S8 with /e/ OS. Installed it by myself and am quiet happy. /e/ OS is just a fork of Lineage Os and that is avaiable for Pixels as well.
@Carsten Yeah I didn't feel like messing with all that. I'm looking at emulating a turnkey solution experience as much as is possible with the current marketplace.

HaikuOS, the #FOSS redo of BeOS, is set to have it's Beta3 release this summer. This 2012 write up on it by IEEE is well done. Between Haiku, Serenity, Redox, and others are we seeing a renaissance of niche OS's like we had at the turn of the century?…

I've wasted enough brain cells on RMS but still disappointed that the "pro-RMS" letter has 3x the number of signers as the "anti-RMS". The #FOSS community has a lot of work to do. Reinforces why I'm publicly stating I'm not engaging with FSF or RMS or any events they are part of.
I find it very intriguing how you play with my words.
But anyways. I am here for fun and not fights and I do not want to spent my time with insults and getting aggreviated.
It seems you lot already are and therefore thanks for nothing.
@twinkybot We are aggravated and you not wanting to even start understanding or asking why isn't intriguing, it's annoying.

I really need to get working on my FOSS licensing philosophy/preferences blog post... #opensource #foss

Great observations and suggestions about being a #foss maintainer by the creator of D3.js

I'm experimenting with the latest #Nextcloud version complete with Collabora and I am blown away by what it can do. Hats off for #foss coming up with a legit replacement for Google Drive for me.
In small-scale personal deployments I encourage anyone to use the built-in. Works great for me.
@David Thiery I believe it is the Collabora stuff. I'm not sure what it's however has it configured.

@Jason Robinson ?? Saw Matrix got some good play on Changelog podcast 😀 #fediverse #foss

@Hank G Yep, a lot of good traction going on ?

I miss my dev time on Avalonia since other projects fill my time but can't wait to get back to using it. Looking forward to the discussion #dotnet #foss #programming

Checkout the latest episode in which @dominucco sits down with @AvaloniaUI to talk all things #dotnet and #foss. #programming

2019 was the first year I was able to really focus on #foss development for the whole year. A brief summary of some of my most contributed to projects:
Busy busy. Curious what social platform you're favoring at this point.
@Dr. Cassone I still have some playing around to do. I've basically been on Friendica as my portal into social the fediverse and a bridge to Twitter. I'm not sure that'll be true through 2020 though. I'd love for the D* API to finally get integrated and running on production servers. That would at least put it in the running again.
That would be nice. Thanks for keeping us posted 😀

...and by disclosure I mean see who the whole dev team is to some level. You get that automatically with #foss of course...

Why did I end up spending a weekend powering through standing up a new #foss project? That's just the way I am I guess 😀.

If you are in high school or college and want to potentially score a nice Linux rig for working on a #FOSS tool/toy concept you have stay tuned to @TheMadBotterINC feed for more details...

So leaking from the top again! @TheMadBotterINC is going to be running a #FOSS contest for US high school and college students for Thanksgiving. Build a #FOSS tool or toy and the winner gets a free @system76 #Thelio on us. Deets to follow on Monday.

We're trying to defend #FOSS against patent trolls. Please help us:

Health tracking was the biggest hole in my open data aspirations. Perhaps no more. It's going to need a lot of help with software though. Sounds like an interesting challenge to me #health #foss #linux

Today I decided to automate and expand my open source and fediverse software funding to my favorite and most used projects. Every little bit helps. #foss #fediverse #linux

For me currently it's Mozilla, Feneas and Matrix for monthly donations in the tech scene. For single projects I randomly throw small amounts based on the feeling of getting lots of value.

Donations are important! We should all be doing that whenever we can to ensure these projects have a future!

My various open source contributions from July/August. A lot of travel in the way but biggest update was starting my contributions to @b612foundation to help with improving asteroid tracking #programming #space #foss

How have I not heard of this before?!?! #foss

Asteroid OS is a free and open source OS for your smartwatch #privacy #foss #cool
