Free Software is good but on its own isn't enough.
When you look at the definition of Free Software you will notice how it is very programmer centric in its sense of freedom.

Those who can't program and don't have the time to acquire the skill are directly excluded from most of the freedom we associate with Free Software.
The only freedom they have is to run a free program and redistribute it without restriction.

If your software could be useful to non-technical people, make sure they still have access to the participatory part of Software Freedom.

Write accessible documentation.

Provide ways for non-technical people to contribute to your project.

And most importantly: Listen to the feedback of non-technical users equally, if not more than that of technical people.

@thibaultamartin I think it's hard to call this project #openwashing when you see all the free software work I already do (github.com/writeas) and how transparent I'm being about my goals (@matt). I don't think I, personally, have done anything to deserve the title.

Either way, if PixelFed only uses #Plume or uses us both, I think it's great. I just want to see the fediverse continue to grow with more projects like @Bat's and @dansup's, who are both doing incredible work ๐Ÿ™Œ

Found a security issue compromising end-to-end encryption in #Keybase under some circumstances. Response so far: known issue, not worth fixing. It doesn't look like they misjudged the severity here, so I am just speechless. Stay tuned... #infosec #cybersecurity #ee2e

Mostly taken during Saturday's protest against #Google, a projected "Google campus" and start-up-ification of our neighborhoods.

2-300 people took the streets of #Kreuzberg, #Berlin (despite two major anti-racist/anti-fascists demos that day)! <3
