Pinned toot

Since I was recently included in a toot as someone to be followed (for which I'm flattered), I figured I'd link to some of my music that I have up on . All except for one (which is a WIP) are under a CC license. Feel free to check them out.

Remember when Google said they would not be evil? When Apple said they were about your privacy? When open source was for people?

We have control of only one of these. It does not require coding skills. It requires being a Sherpa. For most users, even Ubuntu can be intimidating, just because of the sheer number of choices. People just want shit that works. Provide reasonable defaults for new users and manageable privacy.

If you know, teach. Nicely. Advocate. Lead. Make greedy tech obsolete.

I really hope the Librem 5 and Pinephone manage to kick off Linux phones enough for there to be more models down the line.

It's already fair to say that at least the Pinephone is a success among enthusiasts, and while the Librem 5 is under a lot of controversy, it seems like they will be able to launch a very good, albeit expensive phone at some point.

But if say a Pinephone 2 never ends up being created, then it'll just be another super cool device that enthusiasts loved, but which then falls in to obscurity only to never leave

(). Another work week begins, albeit a shorter one. I'll finally have a chance to get my power adapter back.

Just saw the boys off for the night. Time now to get things ready for another work week and then head off to sleep.

1990: Phones do calls/texts

2000: Hey, it plays music now

2010: Hey, it does FUCKING EVERYTHING NOW

2020: Your brand new linux phone can't call or text because it broke after a pacman -Syu

We're officially reaching the point where phones do everything except being phones my dudes

The place I'm coming from here also relates to the idea of not bringing bad habits from other social media. I like the fediverse so much, and so many seen to be here because they're getting away from the ugliness. If people act the same way here, we'll just be chasing our tails.
