One of the more touchy subjects wrt data privacy in #openstreetmap is the use of background (or any other kind) layers in editors, often aerial/sat imagery. All of these, with the exception of the standard style map and the GPX layer, are provided by third parties.

Are there any #robot #vacuum cleaners that I can buy today that behave sanely without an Internet connection? I can live without scheduling and live monitoring from my phone, but onboard room mapping and navigation would be nice.

I should write a "JavaScript tutorial" that just teaches you how to build websites without JavaScript and never acknowledges JavaScript at all.

I'm playing with these days, making some music. I set up github.com/michaelwillis/virtu – which had some hurdles – but now I have an orchestra at my disposal that sounds acceptable. Very happy!

Is anyone here willing to invest some time to set up a IP geolocation and ASN lookup service for our #GreenFediverse Database?
See toot and git:

Are there any FOSS/OpenSource communities or meetups in #norway / #oslo? (or maybe someone who is interested in starting one?)

I often feel like I'm this weird person who is obsessed with a topic (FOSS) that nobody else around me seems to care about, but I'm sure I'm not the only one so I'd love to talk to like-minded people in Norway 🙂

Topics I'm interested in:
- Open source in general
- Use of FOSS software in public (I love what @fsfe is doing!).
- Privacy

Free software versus open source?

(aka software) implies users deserve freedom over programs they run, just like you can modify or repair your toaster. You can alter source code, run the altered programs, and distribute your changes.

implies it's practical to develop software in the open, but there are no guarantees with regards to user freedom. Open source is weaker. Some "open source" software has weird terms that make it non-free.


I'm taking apart this old gauge that served to measure the level of fuel oil left.

I need to find a way to drive this beauty electronically.

Customer is always right and all that but every time someone asks about Plausible supporting AMP I need to restrain myself from sharing this post. Sometimes I fail 😂

It's on Github now so let's see what the community says.

Great alternatives to Google Maps that use #OpenStreetMap data:

- Qwant Maps: website, has directions. Highlights the fact that data is from #OSM, providing links to view and edit the data.
- F4map: website, 3D views of cities.
- MAPS.ME: mobile apps with a neat vector renderer. Minimalist. Works offline. More obviously profit-oriented.
- OsmAnd: mobile apps with lots of features. Offline too. (Too?) many customisations and options available.

There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.

Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.

There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science


Boosts are appreciated to let others know about this new instance.

The RMS thing 

Headlines like “[Richard Stallman] says Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre was 'entirely willing'” are false and deceptive.

In the email thread he just says the victim was probably *forced* to present herselves entirely willing. He fully acknowledges that she was harmed by Epstein.

This is bad journalism at its finest.


The GDPR directive gives Ruben the right to request the data Facebook has about him, and ask for its deletion. Facebook refuses to comply with his Subject Access Requests by replying with convoluted, pseudo-legalese prose. Ruben's page tracks his communication with Facebook and provides interesting insights into the curious “legal” maneuvers by Facebook.

Hi @Purism, your shop is using Google Fonts, so you're letting Google know who's visiting it. An oversight?
