Back in the GTalk days, you could talk to your entire Google contacts list via federated XMPP.

So even back then I had way more contacts on XMPP than GNUSocial or Identica.

Google played a large role in killing off XMPP usage and the day they announced sunsetting GTalk was when I realized they're just another embrace-extend-extinguish monopolist.

Society needs self-hostable, scalable and functional alternatives to surveillance capitalist systems of manipulation and censorship.

@emacsen @librelounge @cwebber I really took to heart some of the stuff you guys were keying into about unintentionally alienating people through shared culture. I think a lot of times that has been an impediment to my own learning. Going into my project I had that in mind, but not to the extent that you talked about. It made me really examine how much I was doing that. The rest of the show was awesome too but that is the thing that really stuck for me in practice.

@cwebber is right in his latest post on his Patreon ( patreon.com/posts/libre-lounge ). Our latest episode of @librelounge captures what we think the show can be, both a celebration and a serious reflection of ourselves and FLOSS. There will be plenty of fun shows coming up on light hearted topics, but shows like we did this week are what really excite me about working on this podcast.

I had a lot of things I wanted to do today, but instead I ended up writing a giant list of "good free software games" for some Libre Lounge episodes

The upside: there's more good FOSS games than I realized/remembered

I started the Libre Lounge numbering scheme at 00001 but @emacsen switched it to 001 and is probably right... if we make it to 1k episodes at 50 episodes a year, that would take 20 years

BUT on the upside I got @emacsen to commit to a "Chris Was Right" episode if we make it to episode 1k

Just spent 40 mins trying to fix a monitor on Ubuntu that's no longer displaying the correct resolution. Can't tell if it's the monitor (works under windows), a driver issue, an Nividia issue or what. Worked yesterday! Tried several drivers!

I really wish there was an easy way to connect Emacs to an Etherpad Lite instance or page. org-mode on an Etherpad would be amazingly useful for me!

Just sent @cwebber an email about how I edit the Libre Lounge podcast in case he needs to do it himself. No excuses!

This week's Matrix Live! We interview @hawkieowl@twitter.com on #Python 3. She talks about what's so good about it, why is it hard to port and crucially what sort of perf improvements we've seen porting Synapse. If you just want the performance graphs skip to 27:30 youtube.com/watch?v=Ad3oqEo5le
