So here's what am thinking for the FLOSS e-ink reader / #kindle alternative idea, were @Purism to build one after the #Librem5.

In terms of hardware, re-use the SoC from the Librem5, since it would already have mainline support, cut out all the cellular stuff, like 4G modem, GPS, Bluetooth etc. to reduce the cost of the finalized PCB and speed up development time significantly.

On the software front, make a minimal Linux-based firmware, capable of booting as the GUI.

It looks like doesn't have any up-to-date developer documentation.

The previous dev guide: and vagrant guide: are archived and no longer maintained.

@njoseph thanks for supporting and hosting Mastodon.

I wanted to ask you about : do you know any communities / sources beyond the and Sunvault? I'm especially interested in reporting stories, as Solarpunk is missing a lot of what hackers are _really_ doing, especially in Africa.

I find extremely Solarpunk-heavy, but with very few writers / journalists wanting to cover that.

Google font: they serve the font file to your visitors. It's a file transfert. So, they collect a log entry on their server with their IP/browser/where-they-came-from/etc... and because many dev use Google-font, they have a map of most of your visitors move accross the internet.
