Dans la pratique — les révolutionnaires se trompent toujours, parce qu’ils croient toujours la vérité trop simple, ont trop confiance en eux-mêmes et s’imaginent qu’ils ont trouvé et déterminé le terme du progrès humain; tandis que le propre du progrès, c’est de n’avoir pas de terme, de n’atteindre ceux qu’on lui propose qu’en les transformant, de ne résoudre les problèmes qu’en en changeant les données.

In practical matters the revolutionary spirits always make mistakes, because they always believe truth to be too simple, because they are too confident of themselves, and imagine that they have found and fixed the end and aim of human progress. Whereas real progress is to have no end; is to reach those ends which one has put before one’s self, only to transform them; to solve problems only by changing their data.

The #Twidere maintainer stopped their work on this great app and closed all API accounts :(

Since I don't like the alternatives, I created my own Twitter app to continue using it. But in the long run, I hope that existing or new apps will come up with the same or better usability

There are people claiming we need more "internet for people rather than corporate agendas" - to just end up with a bunch of complex, low-level pieces of infrastructure few "people" are even able to understand, let alone use. And so we repeatedly get lost in wasting effort and resources in too many unsustainable projects that, at the end, aren't usable by "people" but just "experts". Maybe the first important thing would be stepping out of the bubble and actually see who "people" are.

I just noticed the @fsfe's tag line and really love it: "empowering users to control technology"

Exactly!

Which browser is consuming much more power than competitive ones? @3rik presenting interesting numbers and thoughts on #digital #sustainability in connection with #FreeSoftware at the @fsfe GA.

So, what's your guess?

Making IT security a strategic topic for @fsfe - thanks to @mxmehl for taking this issue forward! Following up from last year's definition of priorities

And Patrick Ohnewein -on the left above- will be @fsfe Financial Officer for the next 2 years, as he is re-elected unanimously

Heiki is also re-elected, as VP of @fsfe --- now voting for Patrick (on the left in the photo above)!

And just now, the unanimously elected @kirschner as @fsfe President, for his 3rd term!

Thanks to Linux Hotel in Essen for hosting the @fsfe GA! Interesting decorum ;-)
