    Why schools should use Free Software.

    ericbuijs – news.movim.eu / open-source-software – Wednesday, 20 March, 2019 - 09:40 edit

My sons college is forcing students to use proprietary Adobe products like Illustrator and Photoshop and this really pisses me off. Any school should offer their students the possibility to use free and open source software and with #Inkscape, #GIMP, #Krita and #Blender there are excellent alternatives available.

    News about the Fediverse

Development of Osada, a federated social network, will be abandoned and the osada.usezot.net instance will close on March 15th. I believe that Mike Macgirvin has choosen to focus on the zot protocol given that his latest endeavor https://zotlabs.com/zap/ will be based on zot6 without support for any other protocol.

    Movim, FLOSS Alternative for Hangouts

    News is spreading that Google will replace classic Hangouts with Hangouts Chat and Hangouts Meet. Since Google had already decided to close G+ forcing me to look for an alternative this was a good moment replace Hangouts with a FLOSS alternative. I’m pretty happy with the Fediverse social networks as a replacement for G+ but … Continue reading "Movim, FLOSS Alternative for Hangouts"

    I feel like almost everything free code communications system that exists - regardless of protocols used - is just a proof-of-concept for a much more unified system. The endgame needs to be a) the user doesn't have to do a lot of research and strategizing to decide which app to use, or when to use this function or that one, because b) every app inter-operates with similar apps, and c) the UX makes it easy to segue between functions. For example, my social media feed doesn't get flooded with ephemeral banter that would be more appropriate to a realtime chat room. Photos posted on my social media feed can be easily viewed and managed in an album gallery, and I can decide which devices and remote services to store them on, temporarily or permanently.
