This is a note to people moving their repositories blindly to Gitlab.org: do you know Google is actually a huge investor in Gitlab?
The issue is not about Microsoft buying Github. The issue is about centralization and silos.
You do not solve that by moving your data from one silo to another.
You solve that by relying on small providers you can trust, or by becoming a provider yourself.
Hmm. Is there a Fediverse gaming instance, or not really...? I don;t want to spam this account with non-FOSS stuff if I can at all help it.
This github fiasco makes me glad I host my projects by printing out all the code on paper and pinning the pages to a bulletin board in the basement of an abandoned warehouse.

We should all be very alarmed by the WH news posts calling immigrants "animals". This is how people get normalized into the kind of thinking that allows them to justify genocide. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2018/05/21/white-house-feeds-trump-base-with-news-release-doubling-down-on-ms-13-animals/?noredirect=on

Facebook: depression because all of your friends and family are closet morons
Instagram: depression because you aren't living on a beach with gorgeous friends like every other person on the planet

Google Removes 'Don't Be Evil' Clause from Its Code of Conduct
(submitted by ourmandave)
The FBI is claiming to have almost 8,000 phones it can't get into. But there are numerous companies offering to break into these phones. So if the information on these phones is so valuable, why won't the FBI use one of these services? The obvious answer is that they want to force Apple and Google to give them a back door. So the EFF is asking the FBI to prove that they really can't get into the phones or to shut the fuck up.
