@Gargron Hi Eugen, just wondered whether Truth Social finally released the full source code (or build its own platform)? Would be curious, if you're legally entitled to share this, of course

Sometimes I try to imagine a world where scientific young minds enjoyed greater rewards for revolutionizing, like, farming methods, manufacturing, or energy, rather than the dark patterns used to optimize ad-clicks at Google and Facebook.

How did we get here?

Mobilizon is a free open source Fediverse events platform, a privacy-friendly alternative to Facebook Events. You can follow their official account at:

➡️ @mobilizon

Its official websites are at:

joinmobilizon.org/en

and

mobilizon.org/en

You can follow Mobilizon accounts from Mastodon etc. because it uses the same ActivityPub federation standard as the rest of the Fediverse.

There are lots of Fediverse apps on @fdroidorg, the free open alternative to Google Play. Some Fediverse apps are exclusive to F-Droid!

Unlike Google Play, F-Droid apps are all free, open source and privacy-friendly.

F-Droid can be installed on any Android phone. It's slightly tricky to install because Google tries to block any alternative app stores. However, once it's been installed it is just as easy to use as Google Play.

There are some simple step-by-step F-Droid installation instructions here:

You can find out more about F-Droid on its official site at f-droid.org

What’s always motivated and inspired us is what privacy enables, and what we lose if we lose our privacy.

That’s why we looked at the key role plays in protecting people’s freedoms.

Snowden: "Apple just declared war on your privacy"

Make peace, not war. Choose free and open source software over privacy intruding services from Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon or Microsoft.

With Apple no longer a viable stopgap as a mainstream platform that protects your privacy, what choices do we have?

Are the free/open alternatives ready or are we asking folks to make tradeoffs between security and privacy (can you have privacy without security? Not really. Although security doesn’t imply privacy either). And what about the FOSS elephant in the room: accessibility?

Join us live today at 5PM Irish time on Small is Beautiful and let’s discuss it.
