The poddery story





poddery.com ( #poddery stands for Pod Dery ) was started around 2010 (domain name was registered on 2010 December 07) by Joe Bivins. To place this in history of #diaspora,
1. The famous lecture "Freedom in The could" by Eben Moglen, was delivered on 2010 Feb 05.
1. This speech inspired 4 students of New York University’s Courant Institute (Illia Zhitomirskiy, Daniel Greppi, @Maxwell Salzberg and Raphael Sofaer) to launch a crowd funding campaign to replace #facebook on 2010 April 24.
1. The first developer preview was released on 2010 September 15 and first consumer alpha version was released on 2010 November 23. The first tag on the github repo dates 2010 December 2.

As you can see from these dates, poddery.com is one of the earliest diaspora pods. Possibly, third pod after joindiaspora.com and diasp.org (if you know another pod started before poddery.com, let me know in comments). When we organized our second Mini #Debian Conference in Pune in 2011, we opened an account in poddery.com (@Mini DebConf India) and its first post was on 2011 June 23.

We posted many photos of the events on this account and when we heard Joe Bivins was planning to close this pod on 2013 June 30, we did not want to lose these posts. We offered to take over the maintenance and launched Save Poddery Campaign in June 2013. We got around 50% of the target amount and with around 66% discount by KnightSwarm, we took over maintenance of poddery.com. We are running this service for about 6 years now. In between we added #xmpp service and last year #matrix.

You can follow the history of this service via @SavePoddery Campaign ** and @poddery.com updates accounts.

We are running our 3rd crowd funding campaign now. Thanks to everyone who contributed, money as well as time and effort to run the service.

imagine if microsoft opened windows to the scrutiny of many eyes, to make all their bugs shallow; trivial to find and mend, and gave windows users the 4 freedoms of #FreeSoftware
 

Low grade "journalists" and internet mob attack RMS with lies. In-depth review.

Low grade "journalism" is making another victim. Philosopher and activist Richard Matthew Stallman is having his ideas distorted and his writings taken out of context just so a "journalist" can get re-tweets from people that didn't even read their article.
Now to what actually happened. In chronological order. (Not as long as it seems. Most of it are quotations from original sources because I'm not an incompetent "journalist".)

Read it!

Minetest 5.1.0 will contain a large number of GUI improvements, including easier element positioning, styling/theming, and a main menu redesign. No formspec replacement though, unfortunately! What's on your wishlist?

We're looking for Minetest-related educational projects and resources to feature on the official website. Please point us to them! They don't have to be in the English language

Just a list of "default" android apps for those looking to run only #freesoftware on an android compatible device. These shouldn't be taken as the absolute best of android floss but rather as a starting point.

App store: g-droid

G-droid lets you browse, (un)install, and apply updates for apps from the f-droid app repository. F-droid provides only 100% FOSS android apps. A nice side effect is increased privacy since builds remove proprietary trackers and many apps do not include trackers or ads to begin with.

Pros over official f-droid client:
Can write short reviews for apps using a mastodon account.

More friendly UI particularly when managing already installed f-droid apps

Cons:

Does not currently support the easy app sharing features the official client has that allows you to beam installed f-droid APKs to other devices. You can still extract any installed APK using tools like this one and then using a file manager to share over Bluetooth.

Web browser:
fennec

This is a version of Firefox for android with proprietary binaries removed. This is chosen over other browsers on f-droid for the extensions namely:

HTTPS everywhere, this encrypts website traffic where an HTTPS connection is known to both be available and not break the site, increasing privacy and security.

ublock origin content blocker extension, can block ads but more importantly keeps a list of malware & tracking URLS for blocking.

Music player: vanilla music. Plays the audio formats supported by android's media framework and doesn't need internet access.

File manager: Simple file manager pro.

Pros:
Reliable file management with support for compressing and decompressing .zip archives

Can swipe to select multiple files without selecting all in directory.

Con-ish: may fail to move files if they are named with special characters
