Hey! A new Plume version (0.4.0, aka alpha 4) will be released in a few days, so it is the perfect moment to translate it in the languages you speak!

You can help on Crowdin. If you need it, we have a guide for you! You can also ask me here, on Matrix, or directly with Crowdin if something is unclear, or if you need help.

Also, if you want to be pinged for the next release, you can add yourself to this list (or I can add you there if you don’t know how to do it). If you prefer, you can give me your contact info privately, if you don’t want to be listed publicly.

That’s it, thanks! :blobcathighfive:

"Adobe is cutting off users in Venezuela due to US sanctions" Another example how dangerous it is to rely on proprietary and rented software. This can't happen to you if you build your business on top of #FreeSoftware which is the only software you really own. theverge.com/2019/10/7/2090403

imagine being one of the first human beings we have a definitive record of in all of history, and it's because you were such a scoundrel and a petty jackass that you collected bronze tablets made of complaints against you and stored them in your house. legendary. what a scumbag. he rules

@avolkov @mareklach @write_as

WriteAs does not have liking/commenting features for fediverse, but this is the feature as well. #Plume does support commenting and boosting on #Fediverse.

But still Plume and WriteAs are the best alternatives for Medium

@mareklach Medium sucks since they went to “let’s grind money” mode (~3 years ago). Hopefully we can still reach medium.com/topics (but who does) and the login wall is just on the front page, but it still sucks.

Actually Medium doing this is probably good for Fediverse.

Have you already tried #FediPlan? It's an open source project for scheduling messages from the web (Mastodon and Pleroma) with nothing stored in db.

Friedrich Engels: The bourgeoisie turns everything into a commodity, hence also the writing of history. It is part of its being, of its condition for existence, to falsify all goods: it falsified the writing of history. And the best — paid historiography is that which is best falsified for the purposes of the bourgeoisie. protestationblog.wordpress.com

Harvard is a Hedge Fund.

#Capitalism is gross and severely broken. Why do students pay $50,000 for tuition when the school has $40 billion already?

"Selling a smartphone is a cutthroat business, and we've seen dozens of companies try and fail over the years. Purism didn't just survive long enough to ship a product—it survived in what is probably the hardest way possible, by building a non-Android phone with demands that all the hardware components use open code. Making it this far is an amazing accomplishment."

I never understood why NPR is not so often being viewed in the US as being state , in much the same way as RT is being ostracized for being Russian, or the Syrian state TV is synonymous in western media with .

Perplexing dissonance with the public.

Ooh, wait... what?! Having Divinity on the just blew my mind considering the reactivity of that world.

Awesome!
