If any of you have ever wondered what the "Open Source Technologist" at the OERu actually does... here're some insights :) https://tech.oeru.org/insight-what-does-open-source-technologist-oer-foundation-do
For the record, this hasn't been done yet (currently working on the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach).
Just a heads up for everyone - I'll be doing an upgrade of this Mastodon instance (at mastodon.oeru.org) in the next day or so, so the site will be down for a few minutes (and perhaps a bit longer).
If you're into working with humans, free software & cryptography, and you love the idea of helping news organizations break their biggest stories based on submissions by whistleblowers, you may want to come work with me! New opening at Freedom of the Press Foundation just went up - boosts appreciated:
This makes me angry:
I run my own mail server in a VPS. Its IP address is NOT blacklisted, and I have both SPF and DKIM properly configured. I do NOT send bulk mail.
But still, Gmail classifies my personal emails as SPAM.
Same email with same exactly same contents, sent through PoBox SMTP server goes to INBOX. Directly from VPS, goes to SPAM. No explanations, no public blacklist. It looks like they just don't want people going "indie". Sigh.
So, do you all think this is legit? Is Open v Closed the replacement for Left v Right? https://www.economist.com/news/leaders/21702750-farewell-left-versus-right-contest-matters-now-open-against-closed-new

Ooo - if you haven't seen it, this is quite useful in working out Mastodon's rules of social engagement... https://github.com/tootsuite/documentation/blob/master/Using-Mastodon/User-guide.md #lida101 #lida102
Women of Wiki, Calicut, Kerala, India arranged #LiDA101 a campaign to introduce stay at home mothers to LiDA, https://mastodon.oeru.org/media/0Y9duDLgTfQcPL2zruw
I'm delighted to see this part of the "fediverse" burst into life! Like the coming of a digital spring... #lida101photo #lida101 https://mastodon.oeru.org/media/epqJqgvF_BNeB88Ya6w
