Two excellent talks (in FRENCH) given this month by the director of the association Framasoft, Pierre-Yves Gosset:

and

Contributopia : Dégoogliser ne suffit pas!

@Framasoft
It would be nice to see this talk at the upcoming 35th Chaos Communication Congress () in Leipzig (media.ccc.de/c/34c3)

Facebook and Twitter lost 20% of their value. 🎆 😂 🎆

We need to keep hitting them hard until they collapse.

When the next action?

Few ideas:

May 1st ( Worker's Day)

May 25, gafam.laquadrature.net

Can we plan ONE big day every ~3 months where we ALL come TOGETHER to beat the s**t out of the investors and provoke an extra stock plunge?

#gnu #linux als Standard-Wahlalternative für die Computer-Arbeitsplätze von ~35000 Student*innen? 30 stud. Gremien der #HumboldtUni haben sich bereits mit #gnuHU solidarisiert. Es bleibt eine Mammut-Aufgabe - mal sehen, wie hilfreich Mastodon(ten) sind, die dahinterliegende Idee in Form von #gnUNI an anderen Bildungsträgern zu verbreiten... alle Updates zu #gnuHU gibt es in Zukunft jedenfalls auch hier! Danke im Voraus für alle Retoots zu hu.berlin/gnuHU-linux und hu.berlin/gnUNI-linux!

Holy cow, it's happening! We have Step 0 (in the form of ActivityPub); we have Step 1 (Mastodon and the renaissance of the Fediverse took care of that). And now Step 2 is getting implemented by @iday :
