To this day, I have not had one mobile device that was as resilient as the original Walkman.
It had an outer shell of all aluminium, like 3mm thick or something and survived tumbling down an actual granit mountain with only loss of some paint.
Oh, it also had dual headphone jacks, because sharing is caring... and a dubbing button in orange for when you were listening to music with a friend, but just had to comment on the music or something else while you were listening, so you could just press it and speak into the microphone.
Also, it didn't just only have amazing stereo, but one volume-slider for each channel!
Only mobile device as sturdy as that I've had was the Ericsson 688 phone, which I sometimes actually used as a hammer against nails into walls.

There's been an explosion of interest in what I call community-hosting, with new multi-tool hosting services like #Disroot.org and #Librehosters, and now #PrivacyTools.io self-hosting services for the privacy research community, and perhaps most exciting, the #librem.one service aimed at the average users currently being #DataFarmed by tech corporations. With all these groups doing similar things with #FreeCode server software, are there any playbooks for reproducing it? Reproducible services?
