We need to be open by default. We should be trying to make close more palatable by sprinkling a little open sauce on it. We should focus on principle: open first, and then, if necessary, spike it sparingly and temporarily with a bit of closed, but keep the preponderance open to make sure you don't capitulate to the dark side. Open just tastes better.
Turns out open is sexy here in New Zealand... https://www.stuff.co.nz/environment/104100927/a-view-to-a-kill-making-nz-predator-free-with-an-autonomous-killbot And how can you resist getting involved in a project that's building something called a "cacophonator"?
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
I'm also interested to see if #lwwd100 works as a course tag :)
Hi Dan, welcome to the OERu family on Mastodon. We're grateful for your generous gift of time to support the #lida103 learning community.
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
