Thinking of getting rid of gmail; I hate to be locked-in, so I wouldn't go for similar solutions. I'm more looking for suggestions to manage a dumb imap server from many devices. Maybe a smart e-mail proxy to install on my website? Something like ttrss (google reader) or matomo (g.analystics), but for gmail :-) #LeaveGoogle
Why is software created using taxpayers’ money not released as Free Software?

* Fostering innovation: With transparent processes, others don't have to reinvent the wheel.
Here's a nice journalism vs propaganda test: read this article, and tell me: were the weapons for the rebels, or for the Ukrainian government? https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48987723

Big thanks to the Finnish customs for protecting its citizens from diseases which would certainly exterminate them: "Finnish Customs euthanise 8 undocumented puppies from Estonia"

Or, should I say, it *would* be the worst news, if I weren't using #privoxy :-) So, my advice is to learn about https://www.privoxy.org/ (and similar proxy-based filters)

I still see the occasional person on Twitter say that Mastodon will never "succeed", but I wouldn't call what Twitter has "success". Mastodon is good ol' community building.
We don't want to be exhausted by brands and promotion, nor have the platform continue to be unethically designed and lack any backbone for moderation. Federation spreads out the moderation task and the lack of brands and promotional nonsense is good. We can just follow and talk with others which is all people really need.
#Finland heading to self-destruction, following patterns already proven to fail in Greece and Italy. This is not stupidity, it's criminality: https://yle.fi/uutiset/osasto/news/second_round_of_labour_market_reforms_needed_says_employer_think-tank/10790553 #austerity
