Beyond books — the cultural life of libraries - lisa dempster https://medium.com/@lisadempster/beyond-books-the-cultural-life-of-libraries-b2aef3573e1b?source=rss-179f2d1b70ef------2
Wow. The course the OER Foundation is currently facilitating for 1200ish educators concentrated in the South Pacific, is running on a USD50/month Digital Ocean droplet. The initiation of the course, when you'd expect max resource hit is showing ~ 10% *peak* (CPU & Memory) resource use on that system. That suggests our infrastructure could easily handle 10x more learners or 10k learners. So that suggests a per learner cost of USD0.005/month. I'd say that's pretty cost-effective.
I just want to highlight again how groundbreaking the pinephone_modem_sdk repository is. I am unaware of any other project that can flash the secondary operating system on a cell modem. Wow! https://github.com/Biktorgj/pinephone_modem_sdk Did I mention the project is GPLv3 as well?

Exactly ten years ago today on September 12 2011 Alexandre Oliva (the maintainer of Linux-libre) posted the announcement that my APT repository for Linux-libre was available, saying "Jason Self's Freesh apt repository carries binary .debs for 32- and 64-bit x86 systems, and support for more architectures is planned. Thanks!" It was named Freesh as the intention is to always serve up freshly-baked kernels that respect your freedom. It has since expanded to twelve supported CPU architectures.
