Still 11k active installations of the really outdated free version on Google Play.
I read some misleading messages. Google removed the free version due to donation links. Remove means you can't even find it in your library though you downloaded it. That has nothing to do with a personal choice ;)
To this 11k users, please, go on #Fdroid to get last updates for free.

Stefan Voigt from the Open Search Foundation has opened the first Open Search Symposium. @NGIZero happy to join the program along w #YaCy and other important decentralized search & discovery technology.

Today is the first day of the #FreeSpeechWeek. Don't forget, you can't have free speech, or free thought for that matter, without #privacy!

Calling out to the Mastodon community again: famous @fdroidorg Repomaker is looking for a new maintainer (and contributors). Should be familiar with F-Droid, Python, Django.

@FPinaMartins @gitlab IBM did business with the Nazis and helped them carry out the Holocaust.

Hello. I'm a UK-based lecturer in computer science. I mostly teach programming with some data mining and AI thrown in. Since my post-doc days, I've also worked in cognitive science, particularly on creating computational models of human learning.

I am here to experiment with an official 'work' microblog. I look forward to following the first two "encouraged uses of", i.e. bragging about publications and sharing references! And also some of the third, networking.

Hiring, doctoral studies

if you run a vBulletin forum, take it offline now. there's a zero-day vulnerability that gives full shell acess and it's trivial to exploit. confirmed to be in use in the wild. no patch available yet.

@codewiz Get a grant from Mozilla and Creative Commons to work on something cool and then quit your job 😎

We integrated UX research into digital security trainings. We now proudly have a software development cycle that puts users first and respects privacy.

In 2017-19, we reached ~800 people in person, including #humanrights defenders, journalists, and political activists.

Immanent = taking place within the mind of the subject and having no effect outside of it.

Gilles Deleuze (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

Philosophy and Science are approaches to “chaos” that attempt to bring order to it, both are creative modes of thought, and both are complementary to each other, as well as to a third mode of creative thought, art. Beyond these similarities, Deleuze and Guattari distinguish between philosophy as the creation of concepts on a plane of immanence and science as the creation of functions on a plane of reference.

SecureDrop 1.0.0 is out and includes support for v3 onion services plus significant updates to SecureDrop’s web-based Source Interface and Journalist/Admin Interface.

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.
