tl;dr of the yarn plant tech issues boils down to proprietary hardware and proprietary software. Things are locked down, there are no specs, there are no sources. The future is uncertain, companies producing the hardware come & go, the only solution is to buy newer and more fragile hardware.
Richard Stallman was right, as he has been so many times before. #webcampsi

@cynix @stefanieschulte Indeed! We had the pleasure of hosting Maciej at WebCamp Zagreb 2016, and he held one of the best talks I've had the opportunity to see live! :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kErHiET5YPw
I think his consistent criticism of Silicon Valley & the tech community is spot-on and much needed.
I find this to be a far more fun and engaging learning method than the MOOC, but other than the Cryptopals Challenge (https://cryptopals.com/, FKA the Matasano Crypto Challenge), I'm not familiar with any similar projects. Any tips?
I guess it's far less trivial to implement & maintain these, and the monetization options are scarce...
@celesteh @cphuntington97 @HerraBRE @creatrixtiara Email allows me for far greater control over what gets delivered, where and when than any of the social networks I use. There are decent clients across all possible platforms, very good filtering options, no vendor lock-in of any kind... Maybe I just don't get enough of it to detest it as strongly as the rest of the world. :)
My favourite missing bit of ostatus in Mastodon is the calendar part. Because:
Every musician I know is still on Facebook and everyone uses them for events. If Mastodon supported calendars, it could be a way to lure musicians away.
Also, I vaguely recall some protocol that propagates bands events out to a lot of on-line music calendars, so a listing here might be echoed to last.fm, etc
