Hello folks, libreplanet annual conference starts today. Do check it out. Let’s make the world free!

Joe Bidet

Also a talk about sxmo/postmarketOS!

Sxmo: Freedom on mobile devices through simplicity and hackability : Sunday 16:20 - 17:05 EDT (20:20 UTC) : Jupiter : Free Software in practice

Proprietary smartphone platforms today are a duopoly (Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS) that takes away user freedom. Unfortunately, in many relationships today, one is expected to have a smartphone and consequently surrender their freedoms to one of these proprietary software vendors. Sxmo is a simple free software mobile interface that you can hack to fit your needs. It encourages the use of free software throughout with postmarketOS and Alpine Linux. This presentation will go over the system and new developments.

Libre Culture
Create a post

What is libre culture?

Libre culture is all about empowering people. While the general philosophy stems greatly from the free software movement, libre culture is much broader and encompasses other aspects of culture such as music, movies, food, technology, etc.

Some beliefs include but aren’t limited to:

  • That copyright should expire after a certain period of time.
  • That knowledge should be available to people, not locked away.
  • That no entity should have unjust control or possession of others.
  • That mass surveillance is about mass control, not justice.
  • That we can all band together to help liberate each other.

I’ve looked into the ways other forums handle rules, and I’ve distilled their policies down into two simple ideas.

  • Please show common courtesy: Let’s make this community one that people want to be a part of.

  • Please keep posts generally on topic

  • No NSFW content

  • When sharing a Libre project, please include the name of its license in the title. For example: “Project name and summary (GPL-3.0)”

Libre culture is a very very broad topic, and while it’s perfectly okay for a conversation to stray, I do ask that we keep things generally on topic.
