Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning did not fire those 30 mm cannons and kill civilians and journalist, the United States government did. If you condemn Julian and Chelsea then you condone the war crimes they sacrificed their liberty to expose.

#AssangeCase is revolting. A parody of justice in a kangaroo court! A pathetic attempt at justifying the unjustifiable: the persecution of journalistic activities, revealing war crimes and lies to the world without compromises, in a raw, uncensorable way.

- public cannot atrend (15 seatsfor 100s of people)
- 1st day of hearing only about the accusation (while most press will only be here today)
- protesters and supporters silenced and pushed away...

Shame UK! #FreeAssange #DontExtraditeAssange

Well, I have just set up things to publish my PGP key using Web Key Directory (WKD) and it is remarkably easy if you already have a web server running at the same domain as your e-mail address.

Create some files, add a couple of web server configuration lines, โ€œet voilร โ€:

We all think of plants as silent, but they're not. ๐ŸŒฑ

Plant bioacoustics is the study of how plants generate and respond to sound. Turns out, plants aren't silent at all. It's just that the sounds they make are outside our hearing range, mostly being ultrasound.

Plants which are distressed by lack of water even squeal at around 20-100 kHz. We can't hear that, but some animals can. Moths will even avoid these distressed plants and lay their eggs on healthier leaves.

When Google corrupts your politicians, your schools (#GSuite), your newspapers (#GNI), your web, your emails, your universities, .., you expect ".org"s like the #FSFE to be your last resort and to defend you.

But when you discover that also the FSFE is financed by Google (2013-2020), it is finally time to #panic:

#rms & #FSF fought #Google even in court:

Is the @fsfe in the position to do the same?

@FuckOffGoogle @aral

also I'm working on a project to help enable that future. Taking the #ActvityPub implentation from @GuppeGroups (based on your NodeJS reference imp.) and converting it to a modular library of express middleware and utils.
Still very early stage, but making progress
