Pourquoi j'ai quitté toutes les applications de conversation pour passer à Element
https://element.io/get-started ELEMENT EST DISPONIBLE SUR TOUTES LES PLATEFORMES
Dans ce monde qui nous prive de plus en plus de liberté j'ai quitté discord zoom et autre systèmes de chat qui n'étaient pas opensource. https://element.io/why-element
Element est réputé pour sa capacité à se connecter à d'autres applications de messagerie comme IRC, Slack, Telegram et d'autres. Aussi, il intègre la voix et la vidéo pair-à-pair et les discussions de groupe via WebRTC. Étant donné qu'il est possible d'auto-héberger l'application et le serveur de discussion, Element est souvent recommandé par les défenseurs de la vie privée.
Depuis 2020, les nouvelles conversations non-publiques sont chiffrées de bout en bout par défaut ; pour les salons publics, cette fonctionnalité doit être activée manuellement.
Étant donné qu'Element est le client Matrix le plus développé, il est recommandé comme point de départ pour les nouveaux utilisateurs de Matrix, même par le projet lui-même. Dans les médias il est parfois perçu comme une alternative à Slack ou d'autres clients de messagerie.
Généralement, Element semble plus populaire dans les communautés du logiciel libre et de l'open source, où il est parfois recommandé de par sa nature fédérée. Cette orientation technique se reflète dans les plus grands salons de la plateforme Matrix, qui comportent des distributions Linux et des salons sur les cryptomonnaies.

faire adopter de l'open source à l'état c'est peine perdue.... la suite nous prouve que non quand un système open source fait mieux que du logiciel propriétaire...

Prévu pour être fonctionnel à l’été 2018, Tchap est un fork d'Element développé par la direction interministérielle du numérique (DINSIC) française afin que ses fonctionnaires ne soient plus dépendants des messageries telles que Telegram et WhatsApp. Il permet des échanges chiffrés, sécurisés et est compatible avec n'importe quel poste de travail et terminal mobile.

Thales, notamment spécialisé dans la défense et la sécurité, a également produit une version dérivée d'Element avec sa messagerie Citadel Team.

Ich bin #Fachinformatiker und arbeite in einem Systemhaus. Wir arbeiten mit #Microsoft Produkten. Windows Server und auch sonst nur mit Closed Source Software. #Privatsphäre, #Datenschutz und IT- Sicherheit ist mir in letzter Zeit immer wichtiger geworden. Im privaten konnte ich das für mich so umsetzen. WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram gelöscht. Lineage statt Android. Linux statt Windows. Ich bevorzuge #OpenSource. In der Arbeitswelt sieht das ganze anders aus. Nun würde ich auch gerne beruflich mit Open Source arbeiten. Leider bin ich halt nur ein einfacher FISI. Ich kann nicht programmieren, habe kein Studium abgeschlossen. Ich bin natürlich bereit zu lernen. Nur frage ich mich. Wo soll ich anfangen. Wie kann ich beruflich die Werte umsetzen die mir privat auch wichtig sind? Welche beruflichen Einstiegsmöglichkeiten gibt es. Wie sollte man sich weiterbilden? Gibt es überhaupt solche Jobs? Als FISI habe ich da glaube ich einfach ein zu eingeschränktes Blickfeld und weiß gar nicht was möglich ist. Wenn ihr mein Blickfeld erweitern könntet, wäre das toll. Vielen dank für eure #Hilfe!

Ireland’s Health Service Executive (HSE) announced today that it is donating the code for the COVID Tracker app as Open Source to the not-for-profit Linux Foundation


This will enable jurisdictions worldwide to quickly build and deploy their own contact tracing apps using a wildly successful proven base. The donated app has been named COVID Green. It's great to see countries contributing what they have created for worldwide use.

The rapid adoption of the COVID Tracker app in Ireland exceeded all expectations. One million people installed it in the first 36 hours, and the app currently has over 1.3 million installations. That figure represents more than 30% of people in Ireland with compatible devices.

The code is also being used in the app for Gibraltar and the upcoming apps for Northern Ireland, other jurisdictions in EMEA and multiple US states. NearForm continues to enable public health authorities to get a contact tracing application into production within four weeks of project start.

What is your top favorite #linux #opensource software, that you use?

I like KeepNote, available on Synaptic Package Manager. I use it as a sort of Kanban-style system. I like it a lot because I can add text to each task (formatting is allowed!), or link to a file on my computer, or whatever.

What software do you like for your computer? I thought this could be a good way for me to hopefully learn about other good software that's available for Linux.

KIT - Privacy Friendly Apps


Many apps, especially free ones, however, request permissions that are not necessary for their functionality. As such, for example, a weather app might request access to one’s contact list, or a QR-code scanner can send private photos to some server.

It is often not clear to the end users, however, whether and when these permissions may lead to privacy violations.

Even if sharing some personal data does not seem dramatic, collecting and analysing much of this data can be abused.


As such, #hackers can use the collected data in order to get more information about you, which can then be used for:
  • Targetted attacks (so-called spear phishing)
  • Influencing one’s buying or voting decisions.
Even if the app developer itself is trustworthy, it can become a target of a hacker #attack, so that all of the collected data becomes compromised.

For list of apps, scroll down the page at this link:

We've been asked if we could quickly implement new features in Liberapay so that it could replace Bountysource, which has been doing shady things. We can't and we don't want to. Encouraging people to pay for a specific issue to be solved is problematic, it creates bad incentives instead of providing stable funding for the proper maintenance and development of a project. If you still think bounties are a good idea, then you can try to revive FreedomSponsors.

Hi there,

I plan the next big update for my browser. Unfortunately I simplified some strings in the source. So on crowdin there are a few languages to update:

I hope you can help me. It would be nice to have as many languages translated was possible before I push the update. Thanks for your help, and sorry for changing so many source strings.

93% funded and 11 days to go


My Kickstarter has been going really well. I am now 93% funded and only needs 2,164 Danish crowns (330$ - 290€ - 250£) to reach the goal. So amid Corona virus fear, Steemit (the crypto-social-media I have been using) experiencing a hostile takeover, possible global recession and global warming, my Kicktstarter is at least one thing that can really cheer me up.

Now I only need the last sprint and I will be able to relax and get on with Phill. First thing will be a front page, and then I have to plan a bit ahead, but I am really looking forward to actually get on with the story.

From my Kickstarter video

I have had a lot of great feedback, also from people who wanted to support in other ways. A foundation encouraged me to apply for a grant, people have just sent me money, and best of all: people told me that they found the oval window that we had installed in the living room really beautiful - which goes to show that my film tricks have gone unnoticed. The fact that what is behind the window is a sort of hyperbole Copenhagen with a large spaceship slowly making a landing, hasn't seemed to destroy the illusion.

The film is made with open source software: Natron, Blender and Krita.

The fourth year of Liberapay


A recap and an announcement, in celebration of Liberapay’s 4th anniversary.

Automatic renewals are finally here!


In last year’s post we said we were working on “the possibility to have your donations be renewed automatically”. Well, it took way longer than we had hoped, but it’s finally done. 😌

Every donation form now includes this renewal method selector:




This feature is very new and still rough around the edges. For example the automatic renewal only works with Stripe, not with PayPal. Nevertheless we’re hopeful that it will satisfy many donors and help stabilize the incomes of creators. Of course we’ll keep working to improve it.

If you’re a donor, go check out your new “Payment Schedule” page. If you want to turn on automatic renewals for all your donations, go to your “Giving” page and click on the “Yes, activate automatic renewals” button at the top.

Screnshot of a payment schedule:

Recap of other changes

Grouped payments


The other improvement we mentioned in last year’s blog post was the possibility to fund donations to multiple creators with a single payment. This has been implemented on our side, in several steps throughout the year, but it’s still limited to a small subset of recipients due to the limitations of the underlying payment processors (Stripe and PayPal). In the last month approximately 10% of payments had more than one recipient.

Multiple payment instruments


Donors can now see and manage their connected cards and bank accounts in the new “Payment Instruments” page, and select any of them during payment.

Here is a screenshot of that new page:



Receipts


When we first migrated to the new payment processors we didn’t immediately update the donation receipt generator, so for a while there were no receipts for new payments. This shortcoming was fixed in June. You can find the links to your receipts in the your account’s ledger.

Visual tweaks


We changed the orientation of several navigation elements from horizontal to vertical in order to make room for more pages and at the same time improve how the Liberapay website adapts to different screen sizes.

More countries


This improvement isn’t our doing, but it’s good news: creators in Estonia, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia can now connect a Stripe account (which allows their donors to pay “directly”, without having to go through PayPal). If your country still isn’t supported by Stripe, you can preregister to let them know that you’re interested and be notified as soon as they launch in your country.

Growth


At the beginning of 2019 Liberapay was still suffering from 2018’s crisis, however we’ve successfully bounced back: both the number of active users and the sum of donations have more than doubled in the past year.

Image/Photo

Approximately €160k have been donated to 652 creators through Liberapay in 2019.

Future


Liberapay is far from perfect, we still have many things to fix and improve, and several big features to implement. For example we know that some creators would like to be able to send updates to their donors, and customize the donation form, and see who their patrons are so they can thank them.

Getting all that done requires a lot of work, so please donate if you can, and contribute in kind if you have the necessary skills and time. We need developers to improve Liberapay’s core, writers to expand our documentation, and polyglots to translate Liberapay.

Thank you for reading. Have a great year. 💛

Soon I will launch a Kickstarter for my comic. I've had some money from the Danish Art Foundation so it will be a nice hardcover version (it is the first 48 pages).

Below is the video I have made for the campaign. Afterwards I plan to make it a sort of introduction video for the Katharsisdrill project. As there are no lipsync on the mask I can say something else in the revised version.

I have only used open source software for this: Blender, Natron, Kdenlive, Krita, Gimp, Inkscape and Audacity. All the music is also made by myself

I’m #newhere , looking for social media alternatives (with better #privacy) I don’t use #Fakebook or #Twitter so trying out this space. I’m interested in #aquarium, #art, #coral, #scubadiving, #sculpture, #linux, #opensource, #travel, #photography etc. Plan on leaving #brexit #UK soon (too #littleEngland) and exploring #Malta and possibly other #eu countries, maybe #Belgium, #Netherlands and #Germany / #Deutschland. Follow me if you want to partake in my adventure. Help me out with info you think might be helpful.
