I saw the grumblings about #audacity today and thought "well we have some left over graphics which really should be used before they go stale" so I've remixed two works into this audacious graphic which can be claimed by whomever starts the #audacityfork.

They managed it! The dark-pattern got me. I accidentally clicked on "accept all cookies" in a bright red colour after going explicitly into the advanced options to "only accept the selected cookies".

It took them many years since this whole odyssey started and cookie banners popped up everywhere. You know the patterns, but that doesn't mean you can escape them.

Seit mehr als zehn Jahren bietet die #Caritas eine psychosoziale Online-Beratung. Juni 2020 hat die Caritas die zu grunde liegende Software unter #AGPL 3.0 veröffentlicht. Warum steht sehr schön erklärt hier: caritas-digital.de/warum-die-b

"Wegen der Ähnlichkeit der Ziele, [...] oft auch dem Einsatz öffentlicher Gelder erscheint es naheliegend, dass Software für gemeinnützige Zwecke von gemeinnützigen Trägern viel mehr und vielleicht sogar grundsätzlich im Quellcode veröffentlicht werden"

The BBC has now removed the “positive impacts of climate change” sections on its science curriculum revision site.

Keep calling this shit out when you see it, people. It does make a difference.

To all the GitHub AI folks: Talk with the FSF, FSFE and the Software Freedom Conservancy, get things organised, produce a lawsuit. Against GitHub and against every software that is developed with this fancy text generator.

Lawyers will love it and no one needs to run too much theory crafting whether or not the licenses apply.

I feel like someone at Microsoft is watching KDE Plasma a little bit too closely...

Plasma's slogan since 2017: "Simple by default, powerful when needed"

Pandemic, expectation management 

It's quite strange to me that we start yet another time a debate to shorten vaccination periods. While it might helps, it also goes against the certified application of the vaccinations and appears to me is just a symptom for yet another time of failed expectation management.

Last year same thing "Uhh look, low case numbers in summer, the pandemic is over" and then came the fall. Apparently the same thing is taking place right now. 👍 Good job government…

Mhm, maybe I should buy a RPi4 to have a modern ARM device around to test stuff. On the other hand I don't know how representative RPis are for the ARM ecosystem. :blobfoxthink:
