Our map serving load is increasingly spread over cache servers located worldwide, with donated hardware and hosting. At the moment we'd love a new server donation located in Brazil or Australia/New Zealand! : https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2019/02/24/can-you-help-make-openstreetmap-org-faster-in-brazil-or-australia-new-zealand/

The KDE community is adding Matrix to its instant messaging communication infrastructure. Join our server, get a cool KDE handle and become part of the KDE conversation.

Matrix provides graphical instant messaging for desktop and mobile (with all its goodies: gifs, emojis, etc.), bridging for IRC channels, point to point encryption, file sharing, and more stuff that will help improve KDE's communications.

Breaking: The text of #Article13 and the #EU #Copyright Directive has just been finalised


https://juliareda.eu/2019/02/eu-copyright-final-text/

Please reshare widely and take action. This has the potential to endanger the #internet as we know it, making it more and more composed of only large platforms.





This has the possibility of killing #alternative #socialmedia projects and small #startups trying to compete with the big #corporations.

This will put everything I work for as a #hobby and at #work. So if you don't take action because the internet, take action because otherwise I might need to find new hobbies and work!

Ps. And yes, this affects people outside #Europe too. The internet knows no boundaries.
