Time to make things happen! Unfortunately, this is the biggest combination of crisis and useless you can imagine.

@devurandom I feel like such a big part could be summarized as nostalgic patriotism...

Wow, that's rough.

[email protected] - “Lobbying by Poland and Hungary has led to the removal of the phrase ‘gender equality’ from a Friday declaration on advancing social cohesion in the European Union.”


Thank goodness they didn’t try to remove “Single Market” or there would have been a huge uproar.


@hinterwaeldler Sounds familiar - I have a Wallabag instance that just keeps stacking up... And of course, I have two years of Wired in a pile in the corner.

"OnePlus Watch Review: They Settled!" -
youtu.be/07mIwEa3xbQ - much as I feared, apparently not really there yet. At least they tried to do their own system.

@dick_turpin To be fair, it may be a reaction to how many people are using Dash to Dock, but yes - not a fan of that. It is small things, shouldn't make a difference, but... Hm.

Signal’s smartass ad exposes Facebook’s creepy data collection - thenextweb.com/news/signals-in - I can see the temptation, not a wonder they got canceled

Hmmm. Gnome 40.
F34 is perfectly fine! But I do wonder about some design decisions...

I need a job. While I'm applying to PhD positions, I can't wait around for that.

Nothing makes the reality that I have to do this hit hard quite like paying out 10k of bills...

Recent M.Sc. in Mathematics (Number Theory). I can do mathematics, software engineering, etc. I write English passably, and can limp by in German.

Goettingen or remote... I'll move if I must but it'd be a heavy burden at this point. USA citizen in Germany, Czech citizenship in the works but not yet in the bag. This is 2021, surely remote is possible.

Temporary or freelance work also a possibility. :boost_ok:

@Ahuka @craigmaloney On this side of the Atlantic, it used to be that people would be members of FSFE as well as the original FSF. Now, it is the FSFE - because they have a focus on solutions and influence. The efforts towards demanding open standards and "public funding => public code" on a political level in the European union is very much carried by the FSFE.
FSF is like a symbolic monument, like a constitution or founding fathers.
