Kudos to @QOTO (@freemo) for their great work 🌟

@tripu FYI did you know QOTO has its own Matrix server now? Open registration for all: @eff

“It may surprise you to learn that only could be the default until late last year. It may further disorient you to know that competing iOS browser vendors are still prevented from delivering their own engines.”

That’s a good idea, thanks!

The problem is, I tend to use lots of resources when I write anything (dictionaries, Wikipedia, my own public posts or private notes…). It’d be difficult for me to say anything of substance about these books from memory, without writing a polished script first… But it might work, to some extent!

@tripu This is an important matter that it's worth going to war for.

If, like me, you were frustrated by the @eff’s Secure Messaging Scorecard being outdated for years now, go check Mark Williams’s Secure Messaging Apps Comparison — it’s a great resource.

My only objection: I would boost (ie, , ) and fully recommend it, and penalise and discard it, based on their respective results under the section “are the and server completely ?” — I think that’s paramount!

TL;DR: use (it’s the best and most user-friendly); if not possible for whatever reason, resort to apps as 2nd best.

Too bad I can’t fit anything like that in my schedule any time soon… 😞

If I had the time, I would love to write and produce a very personal about .

I’ve been on a mission, for a few years now, to read the top twenty or so most important, most influential works of world . Fiction top ten, plus non-fiction top ten. Because the meta-ranking I use as a reference updates regularly with new rankings published and with slight improvements to the algorithm, in going through the list I’m actually getting closer to reading the top forty books.

Each (short) episode would focus on one book: I would share my review, read some passages I highlighted, and my explain why the book is (or isn’t) that important and how it affected me personally.


@aperalesf Muchas gracias por compartir tus averiguaciones. Yo tengo pendiente des-googlizar mi móvil y una tableta vieja.

Sex, sports, food:

if you spend more time watching it, reading about it, or commenting it — than doing and enjoying it yourself — look inwards and seek help.

But not when the cost of hardware, software and power is zero — then performance is positive infinite :ablobtonguewink:

#Mozilla #CommonVoice wishes to gain 500000 new contributions by July 20th. Sounds huge to me, but maybe it can happen!
Common Voice is a really cool project attempting to collect recordings from people of all ages, genders, dialects, etc. so that future speech recognition can become more reliable, and so that we do not need to depend on things like Google's captioning service. If you care about #accessibility, #privacy or just like reading out or listening to random sentences, please optionally make an account (to help make the data more easily searchable) and contribute.
This absolutely does not go just for English speakers, BTW. English is doing just fine. If you speak any other languages, please help add, record and sort sentences in it, instead. For example, the Slovenian database is growing, slowly but surely!
Edit: Fixing typos. Sorry!
