On leaving the politics out of hacking
@dzu Thanks. I need to look at what's involved in moving a Docker based Nextcloud installation as my Nexcloud server is super slow. It's fine for async operations like file access but for anything interactive it's unusable. Need to move it to another box.
@sophia Healthy boundary setting FTW.

"Since they first appeared, ‘Smart Home’ devices have been marketed as faithful servants, ready to aid and assist their owners. The truth is that they have been designed to serve only the interests of capital as houses become assets. We need to start imagining digital technologies that could serve emancipatory projects aimed at ensuring homes for all that are not just ‘smarter’ but happier, safer and more secure" http://autonomy.work/portfolio/beware-the-smart-home/ #autonomyinstitute
@barbanegra You're far more hardcore than me! Years ago I used to be for more experimental and optimizey but right now I use Ubuntu and Gnome.
Hey @librelounge listeners, what do you think about the idea of renaming episodes to their air date? So instead of Episode 5 it would be December 29, 2018.

I was invited to consult a European research project called Eunomia. The project aims to implement a web of trust system for the spread of news in social networks, and I will be advising them on how their system can work with decentralized social networks, and Mastodon in particular. I'll also be doing community outreach, since at some point we'll need volunteers for trying it out.
The kick-off meeting is in January, in London. I bought the tickets today. Excited & equally terrified.
