Dear Fediverse, we announce:

ActivityPub for Administrations

Our members at #SocialHub are very busy preparing for our European Commission events. In two webinars and a workshop we'll introduce EU representatives to @activitypub and its applications on the #fediverse

Besides focus on deploying #activitypub apps in EU institutions, we'll establish liaison, and will hopefully broaden mutual co-op in future.

We organize together with @NGIZero who provide great support!

In an upcoming #IEEESoftware paper with Chris Lamb, we describe the #ReproducibleBuilds approach to increase the integrity of [#opensource] software #SupplyChains and how that worked out for #Debian.

hey my department at NYU has two very exciting opportunities you all should apply for: a teaching/research fellowship ($30k stipend, due 4/15) and a project residency ($5k stipend, due 5/1)

So nice to be featured in the Tech Radar by ThoughtWorks: "An opinionated guide to technology frontiers" 🤩🙏

The Tor Project is hiring a Junior Systems Administrator! Please retweet and share this opportunity with your networks.

Talking & connecting is a basic human need, so why should we allow our online interaction to be seized by companies that (by commercial design) are after personal data? Especially for public services like national/European administration citizens deserve to connect in a way that serves them, instead of data-hungry third parties.

NGI Zero is happy to announce a series of webinars and a workshop organized together with the #ActivityPub-community & #fediverse-devs on April 19, 26 and 29.

My laptop just ran out of battery during an upgrade.

I'm not even afraid because of #guix 🤠

All too often I hear "how can we justify funds to maintain research software?"

But really, we should be asking "How can we justify _not_ funding it?"

My colleagues and I wrote a thing:


The Tor Project is joining calls for Richard M. Stallman to be removed from board, staff, volunteer, and other leadership positions in the FOSS community, including the Free Software Foundation and the GNU Project. Sign the open letter:

We have been warned that a free version of #Fedilab has been published on GPlay.

We don't own it and we didn't build that version. If you want to use the app for free, you should only download it from #Fdroid which builds apps from sources.
