17 years old junior software developer, studying university (Computer Systems Engineering) since 15. I strongly believe in free (as in freedom) software, privacy and liberty, as well as human rights and equality. I enjoy learning new things and sharing my knowledge.

Then one day, someone smart built a new technology that didn’t require people to sign away their information. Now, people could meet anyone they wanted and talk about whatever they wanted, not just what Facebook or its competitors said was okay. People felt more relaxed, too, because even though there were ads, people could meet up in Cyberspace without every single action they took being used to fuel an advertising machine.

People got excited again, like the first time they found the Web and gave up on AOL.

But there our story ends, because that chapter has not yet been written.

The chapter is being written: the Fediverse. And it has no ads!

No, that’s actually a real feature built into Edge.

That’s just so me.


It’s difficult. Jitsi Meet has experimental E2EE support, but it only works on Chrome because of “insertable streams”.



Convos is awesome! I self-host it myself and I don’t plan to switch to TheLounge ever.


Yeah, I’ve seen that! It’s quite old. https://xkcd.com/135/

That’s the neat part: he doesn’t.


Wow. That article is mind blowing. It describes me perfectly fine: I always behave as an arrogant asshole. I need to stop. I’ve been wanting to stop for a long time, but never figured out how. This article puts it plainly!


Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention that. Some chips do more or less match that number; but others don’t, especially the smaller ones.


No, Intel does manufacture chips. AMD doesn’t.


Intel processors, IIRC, are 14nm, whereas AMD chips are 7nm. Intel processors are manufactured by Intel within the USA, whereas AMD chips are produced by TSMC in Taiwan.


I would personally count security as a subset of privacy, because, it’s no use to have the most secure system when it shares all your data to third-parties; but you need security if you want to make sure there’s no easy way to steal data from your system.


  1. As far as I know, only the UI is proprietary. But it probably counts as non-free based on GNU’s FSDG guidelines.
  2. What do you mean by “Real Linux”? Having a proprietary UI doesn’t mean the system does not include the actual kernel (Linux). Sailfish OS IS real Linux (it contains it). If what you really meant was “Real GNU/Linux”, then, I’m not sure how GNU-ish Sailfish OS is.

What I want to know is where could I follow the progress it? Not only am I very excited about it, but I’d also like t…
