Hey all! We are trying to #internationalize Taguette (#floss qualitative research tool, taguette.org) 🌍

If y'all could help translate Taguette into a language you speak, you can do it in-browser at: transifex.com/remram44/taguett

We have French + German so far, but would love others if folks have time!

Thanks 💟

How Does Mastodon Work? - @kev

If you're asking yourself "how does Mastodon work?" this post will provide an excellent answer. #Mastodon is an #opensource and #federated social network.

I find it absurd when people accuse #SciHub of "stealing" from journal publishers. It is the publishers who are stealing, from the scholars who write, peer review and edit the journals without pay, from universities and their libraries who have to pay to so their researchers can publish papers *and* to get access to them, and from the public who fund all this, through public funding, tuition fees and so on.

Simple statement at the end of "I love free software!" day: I love free software!

@dajbelshaw Just saw your presentation at ALT 2018 about the federated approach for Moodle.[1] Very promising and consistently thought out!

Have the presentations from ALT already been uploaded to PeerTube?

Don't feel bad or ashamed if you spend your week-end sleeping, resting.

It's *it's purpose*.

And in itself, resting is **not** doing nothing.

It's taking care of yourself, and allowing to gather back some energy. Some time to yourself.

Resting *is* doing something, for you. And it's a good thing to do sometimes.

Released the presentation that I used for the workshop on & [1] as an .

Used the project to check out the new version 2.5 for building slides. This time I had to invest some time, but now I have a scaffold that I - and you - can (re)use.

Please find the slides as a PDF at (in German) in our university's .[2]

Gave a workshop yesterday in the central library on & . Twenty people showed up and had a lively discussion about , , , autonomous vehicles and .

In the end, one of them suggested to establish a weekly round table on techno-ethical topics, as everybody agreed that *nothing* was clear about current technical trends. They exchanged mail addresses and want to continue the discussion right away next week.

This was not what I had expected!

I want to explain the idea of the to strategic and political players.

Does anyone have a good drawing that says more than words? E.g. how , and play together?

In the current newsletter I read about [1]. I think that's a great initiative, because information and education about the idea of decentralization and federation is needed.

The tutorials at ProtoSchool are about IPFS and the like which is good. But I wonder if and non-blockchain-based federation should appear there, too.

Should we ask if ProtoSchool could be a place for that? Should we write such a tutorial?
