Wer keine eigene -Instanz hosten kann, kann jetzt @senfcall bzw. senfcall.de nutzen. Es ist meines Wissens die erste frei nutzbare BBB-Instanz. Ich bin ja von BBB sehr angetan, ist für die Lehre meines Erachtens etwas besser geeignet als jitsi, allerdings fehlt es noch an öffentlich zugänglichen Instanzen. Mehr zu BigBlueButton und anderen Tools für die Online-Lehre hier: 1337kultur.de/2020/folge-71-on und hier: 1337kultur.de/2020/folge-72-on

Is there a facility in #ActivityPub and in clients to support multilanguage posts? Or at least something like that being planned? So that I can create a single post in multiple languages, and the followers see only the part in their language?

I hate DRM. A lot. And while I started off hating DRM because of the ways it restricted fair use, the more I worked on the issue, the more I realized that this was just the tip of the iceberg.

DRM is not really a technology - it's a law. The digital locks on your devices can generally be removed, because preventing the owner of a device from modifying it is really, really hard.

If Google does not want to listen to my explanations, I will not change the app for them.
The way they are acting is unfair and don't give any trust concerning next publications.
I prefer to spend my time to help people to switch on #FDroid for getting the app.

If you haven't subscribed or donated, but have the budget to do so and find CryptPad useful, please do! Going beyond breaking even will allow us to hire, resulting in more time spent on design, support, and new features!

Also, as a maintainer you're used to hearing your project being criticized all the time, because people usually only take the time to mail you when they're facing a problem they can't solve.

Sometimes, just sometimes, someone will send you a short, sweet mail saying "Hey, I'm using this and it's great. Thank you for making this!".

Be that kind of positivity in life! ❤️
