The Tox Project

**https://tox.chat/index.html**


Tox began a few years ago, in the wake of Edward Snowden's leaks regarding NSA spying activity. The idea was to create an instant messaging application that ran without requiring the use of central servers. The system would be distributed, peer-to-peer, and end-to-end encrypted, with no way to disable any of the encryption features; at the same time, the application would be easily usable by the layperson with no practical knowledge of cryptography or distributed systems. During the Summer of 2013 a small group of developers from

_aD: Since this wasn't answered to your post: Installing the privileged extension for #fdroid will turn F-Droid into a known source, so you'll no longer have to allow unknown sources.

switchingsocial: FYI: #Fairphone Open, which is not preinstalled, but officially supported by Fairphone, comes with the privileged extension preinstalled.

About your text: I'd switch the adjectives in the very first sentence. F-Droid is #FOSS or #FLOSS, while some apps are just #OSS.

The pointlessness of the FSF endorsed distros based on Ubuntu...


A pure Free-Software distro is a very hard ambition as well as an hard goal to accomplish, you have to deal with your hardware and if your hardware is not compliance with the free Software it is almost impossible running a pure libre distro. But back to time when even installing a standard distro was an impossible task, Ubuntu came out helping a lot of people making easier installing linux on whatever hardware. However we have to flip the point of observation, at the beginning there were just free drivers mostly made through reverse engineering, most of them were too buggy or unreliables, and the few closed drivers were hard to obtain or unavailable to the end users. Hence running a linux distro and having a laptop or a PC with 100% hardware recognized was very hard to achieve but not for Ubuntu. Ubuntu made easy installing blob binaries on Linux and making your hardware properly working, cool! All of we are in debt with Canonical for this because Ubuntu broken this barrier and helped all the distro to achieve the same, pointing the direction to follow. The main point is Ubuntu used... show more


 

Good Linux Podcast???


Hi guys,

it is only recently that I have discovered the Linux podcasts, for one of the very few I follow I almost reached its regular release, #latenightlinux, so I was looking for new podcasts beside the other one I follow too, #thelunduke show.

Specifically I would like some suggestions for podcasts that are free-software oriented rather than just opensource and not particularly Ubuntu centric, Ubuntu is boring. I remember the first edition of Late Night Linux were more interesting with Ikey of Solus rather than the latter with Will and Graham from Ubuntu.

Thanks!

The new copyright directive excludes #FLOSS platforms from requiring #uploadfilter completely! This includes e. g. @Mastodon, or #Wikipedia. So the directive supports #FOSS!
Beside the general problem of censorship, I like this fact a lot.

#omg this is so cool!


#osmand has freakin public Transport support built in now!

And a nice New graph for other navigation.

I even thought firstly its also offline but at least for me right now it ist..

I wished for so long to have a floss all in one navigation solutions. And now its finally here..

Now the only thing that is missing is better faster and failure tolerant search and then we never need google anymore!

(And if course having this as web service would be superhelpfull as well for computers 😀 )

Choosing a license for my free software projects


Hi all, i'm considering what license to choose for my free software (FOSS) projects:
* GPLv3
* Public Domain
* Something else?

So far i've been using GPLv3 since this is what seems to be most often used by people who value and prioritize freedom

After seeing some posts by @Miloslav Číž and also discovering that SQLite is licensed with CC0 i'm considering if using CC0 would be better, or another third alternative. Thoughts on this?

Also: What are the reasons so many people choose GPLv3 over CC0? (I'm not interested in attribution personally)

Grateful for help!

At #FOSSASIA Duane O'Brien reminds us that more than half of #opensource lives in places other than GitHub.

Think twice before you rely on proprietary platforms for your #FLOSS work. And before you judge people based on GitHub profiles.

Hey developers & ActivityPub enthusiasts!

@GetTogetherComm is a free open alternative to MeetUp.com.

The lead developer needs help with implementing federation, either coding or better documentation about ActivityPub.

There's an open issue for it here:

https://github.com/GetTogetherComm/GetTogether/issues/60

There's been discussion but no code contributions yet.

Can you help?

(It would be *so* cool to get this kind of service federated, imagine every town having its own instance :blobaww: )

Eine Frage: Gibt es irgendwo gute und pragmatische, vorzugsweise englische, Texte, die jemanden auf einfache Weise erklären, warum es besser ist eine Software als OpenSource zu veröffentlichen? Welche Lizenz zum Beispiel gut ist, damit man nicht von großen Firmen platt gemacht werden kann.

Hintergrund ist, ich würde gerne die Entwickler der Synthesizer/Sequencer/Sampler Hardwarebox synthstrom.com/product/deluge/ überzeugen, damit die Community bei der Entwicklung helfen kann. Im Moment macht das ein einziger Entwickler, der wirklich gut ist, aber ich bin mir sicher, dass weitere Entwickler diesem phänomenalem Gerät mit ihrer Hilfe recht schnell den Status einer Legende im Synthesizer Olymp verschaffen könnten.

Bitte keine dieser religiös und verbohrt anhaftenden Texte "OSS ist beste von Welt, weil isso". Der Text muss die richtigen Argumente haben, die die Angst vor Diebstahl nimmt und das Gefühl von der Sicherheit gibt, die OpenSource geben kann.

Three weeks ago I wrote a guide about FLOSS tools to create a forum or community. I updated this original post a fair bit and published it on my blog. I added lots of links to the source code and example websites of forums. I also expanded on most of the alternatives. Lastly I added Discourse as an option.

Musk releases all Tesla patents to help save the Earth
Elon Musk announced Thursday he had released all of the electric carmaker Tesla's patents, as part of an effort to fight climate change.

"We believe that applying the open-source philosophy to our patents will strengthen rather than diminish Tesla's position," and ability to attract talented engineers, he said.
