My own #introduction (Gotta abuse hashtags at least once in my life)
Graduated with a associates of science in computer #programming
Good afternoon #SDF! So I got SIP working last night, and today I'll make some calls! I think next month I should have enough dough to do a yearly sub for MetaARPA. Also might install the Freedombox( https://freedombox.org/ ) onto a Raspberry Pi 3, but I need to buy an ethernet cable first, or look to see if I have any spare ones...
So I got my SDF SIP configured. Pretty cool, even if I can only dial internet-only.
Hi all! My 2018 #SDF aspirations have gone well so far, lets review them and see what else we need to accomplish!
1. Meet an awesome #community:
2. Make a #homepage:
3. Make a #phlog:
4. Get #MetaARPA status:
5. Utilize all of SDF's features:
I have much more to do than just the above, but I feel in SDF's case that's what is most important for me right now. SDF has really made a difference in my life, so I hope to spread the word about it to others!
Unless required by law or professional ethics demand it:
Companies shouldn't need to know people's gender
Companies shouldn't need to know your ethnicity
Companies shouldn't need to know your legal name
Companies shouldn't need to know where you live as long as it isn't a country under some sanction
Companies shouldn't need "identity authentication" or proof of ID
Companies shouldn't need a picture of you
Unless required, there is no legitimate need for any of these things
Anyway, it's just a thing that I think about sometimes.
It'd be real cool if we could make it happen.
Running libraries, physical and digital. Fixing old tech, and keeping it running and safe to use. Teaching the community, in public and private ways, how to be safe, and how to be kind.
But imagine for a minute an org, entirely non-religious, built on inclusivity and not being shitty to one another.
Imagine that org sitting just out of frame helping people, fixing things, making the world better.
Imagine that org sending members to run local governments, helping cities transition to municipal internet, fixing zoning laws to be less classist, etc.
Good evening #SDF and the wider #fediverse! So I'm just wondering, for all the SDF users, what got you into the service? Were you there when it was still a #BBS? What do you hope for the future of #SDF and sites that provide #Unix environments? And, lastly, on a different note, do you think #Windows 10 will possibly be the last Windows MS releases because of the rumored 'S' feature being turned on permanently? Note: For those not in the know, the 'S' feature is for WIndows to only use store apps
I wouldn't care about the web if it were just a vehicle for corporations to sell us stuff (or sell our data). Websites like this remind me why I love the web. This is the cybre I want to see in the world.
It is okay for you to find joy in the technological achievements of humanity in general whilst still being uncomfortable with the structures that led to said achievements.
