Free software foundation video


Free software foundation video

I just tried to find the fsf free software user liberation video ready for Software Freedom day on Saturday, I can only find this on Youtube, Would it be possible for the @Free Software Foundation to share on services such as @peertube please, so that we can share, but also share externally via a privacy friendly source.

May look good otherwise you are using a non free service to host a video to raise awareness of free software. Sharing on peertube raises awareness of privacy friendly alternatives.

Just a thought.

This is a demonstration of pwm motor control to measure the speed of a running motor. This can be used to keep 2 motor speeds in sync so a robot can move in a straight line.

Jesy Nelson, Odd one out


Little Mix star Jesy Nelson goes on a journey of rehabilitation as she opens up about abuse she has suffered at the hands of cyberbullies and its effects on her mental health.

Just about to head off and watch this, sounds interesting and would be interesting to see generally if decentralised social media can really help here, as it footballers / celebrities also seem to get a lot of abuse online.

I am not sure if it would work if say a football (or soccer) team hosted their own instance, so only they could be on that hosted server, they could post content, comments etc, they could link to other teams doing the same. (so sort of locked down to just players / staff and key people from that team) anyone wanting to post comments does so from a different, well more public server. if there is abuse, then could that server or user could perhaps be blocked, but it could result in trolls being banne... show more

well it wont play here, though understanding narcissism and narcissistic abuse would go a long way towards fixing problems online.

there are several movements to fix bullying. im against most of them, as they dont just miss one important point, but several and stand to make things worse.

what i advocate is for everyone to learn about narcissism and narcissistic abuse, because it arms people with more useful information and leads to better decision making whether youre suffering from the abuse or watching it take place, or trying to understand someone defending themselves from it. (this final point is the one where most anti-bullying campaigns stand to do the most harm.)
