Time to blow this popsicle stand.
Giving pleroma a shot. I’ll be hanging-out here until something goes wrong:
@jjg I found it hard to agree with that part of the book. Lanier is assigning blame on FOSS for problems created by an entirely different group of people with entirely different set of values.
Next post will probably involve screwdrivers... 😇 🛠️

Reading Lanier’s book (“10 Arguments...”) had the less-obvious effect of making me think hard about the free-as-in-beer aspect of (most) #FOSS.
The claim he makes that this was a mistake, or more specifically that the way they “solved for free” (advertising) paved the way for exploitation of users, warrants considerable thought.
Until we smash capitalism, people who make free-as-in-speech things need money to survive,;using ads for this was a mistake.
What to do next...🤔

I've flirted with the idea of bringing a machine of my own "to market" but I'm not sure if it's realistic to do it alone.
The Arduino IDE can target the #odroidgo directly, and you could avoid trying to figure out the ESP32's various hardware by leaning on the existing Arduino support.
(assuming that it's possible to implement a Forth in that environment, of which I have no idea...)
We made so many improvements in #FreedomBox v0.48.0 that it's hard to summarize them all in one Mastodon post!

I find it amusing that my vacuum is not only hackable, but spends its time hanging-out in a chat room.
