It's public now! Spritely (and myself) have been awarded a Samsung Stack Zero grant! I'm funded for the next two years to bring ActivityPub and the fediverse to the next level. Secure interactions, object capabilities, p2p content delivery, all that stuff! samsungnext.com/whats-next/cat

Packing tips: Bring warm clothing and a coat (near freezing and chance of rain/snow), don't forget Belgian power plug adapter and chargers for your smart devices. Cash money for purchases at stands or beer-event (cash machine onsite runs out quick), catering also accepts cards.

VOLUNTEERS SOUGHT
FOSDEM is a conference entirely made by volunteers. While a small crew works on it year-round, most of the work during the conference is done by a large, enthusiastic group of great people who donate their time to make FOSDEM happen: you! volunteers.fosdem.org/

I was going to announce it a bit later and more properly, but Mastodon received a $70k grant from Samsung NEXT through OpenCollective. I intend to make it available to those who contribute to the project, and have already notified some of the most regular contributors. The way OpenCollective works is that anyone can submit an expense and all transactions are listed transparently. It also holds the money.

As for myself, I intend to continue using Patreon for my own wage/costs.

"Reader mode" (as found in Safari or Firefox, for instance) is one of the best things to have happened to the web in latest times. Oftentimes you can even skip the whole cookie dance altogether.

As per #GDPR, I am asking a service for a copy of my data in their platform. I got this:

"provide a copy of your identification document, as we want to take the appropriate measures in order to ensure the safety and security of the data that we hold on you"

Is this normal? πŸ€”

At some point there are going to be programs that are nothing more then sandboxes for web assembly.

how is #fdroid going to handle those programs? Cause if you let one them into fdroid, its going to be a slippery slope and all of them will want in.

Does your school give the data of your children to a random cloud provider in another country? Or does it what the capital of Switzerland does for its 35.000 students, keeping their data safe and secure in their own #nextcloud?

How To Get Flatpak Apps To Use The Correct Gtk Theme

linuxuprising.com/2018/05/how-

β€˜Flatpak is great for many reasons, but there's one annoyance. Due to sandboxing, Flatpak applications use the default Gnome theme (Adwaita), and not whatever Gtk theme you're currently using.

The fix for this issue is to install your current Gtk theme from Flathub. This way, Flatpak applications will automatically pick up your current system Gtk theme and use that instead of Adwaita.’
