Anyone already building a personal voice assistant🤖 that runs in the browser?
There is going to be a #WebAPI for speech synthesis?? That’s awesome!! 🤩
Besides fun features and online voice bots, it sounds like this could be useful for accessibility features.
A new week is about to start. Do something for your workflow!
GitHub supports multiple issue templates with a fancy picker.
The dialog seen in the picture:
The template files in the repository:
The world is full of brave men and women who are not afraid enough to offer online locating services and connected toys targeted towards kids in 2018. 🙃
I would not want to be the entrepreneur of a 'Find my child' app. If some data leaks, you’re in so much trouble. 😅
I love the @fdroidorg app store for Android. In my mind screenshots add a lot of value to the listings.
That’s why today I’m going to submit PRs to a couple of app repos to add screenshots.
The PRs for #AndStatus and #OpenVegeMap are already sent:
I hope that one day I can have a phone with an open operating system. The #Librem5 looks super promising.
However, after all that has happened I remain skeptical until I see it work.
#Canonical and #Mozilla forfeited in the mobile OS market. #Cyanogen became weirdly closed. #Wileyfox (I currently have one of their phones) started with a privacy-minded CyanogenMod and later sold its user base to several 'partners'.
Time to try out #PureOS.
Tonight I mapped again in #OpenStreetMap using the HOT Tasking Manager.
I mapped and verified blocks for the Tanzania Development Trust: Rungwe Kasulu Community Mapping Project. The map data is supposed to help NGOs to deal with humanitarian crises and to better facilitate disaster response.
There was a humanitarian mapping🗺️ meetup at the Mozilla office in Vancouver, BC yesterday. With beginners and advanced mappers we traced buildings from aerial imagery🛰️.
We mapped in the area of Pirojpur Sadar, Bangladesh🇧🇩 for a task created by the Amercian Red Cross.
Just coming back from a great presentation about the effect off CO2 on the earth’s future. 🌍🔥
The presentation was broadcasted to the H. R. MacMillan Space Centre in Vancouver🇨🇦 from Adler University in Colorado🇺🇲. The talk was not only broadcasted to nine planetariums🌌 but also on YouTube as a 360° live stream. Thanks to the Kavli Foundation.
I bought a t-shirt yesterday saying "Dance like no one is watching, encrypt like everyone is".
I just read about #commonsplatform, the title is "Social Media, Decentralized".
Sounds rather similar to the Fediverse.
Then maybe have your say on their GitHub, it would be a missed opportunity if this platform would not interoperate with the Fediverse.
Quick reminder that everyone has data they should not be storing online.
A collection of things I made for people new to #Mastodon, based on questions I commonly see in the public timelines during influxes of new folks. :)
