Ô surprise: après avoir incité à la création de micro-entreprise par la promesse de cotisations réduites, le gouvernement retire la réduction, avec effet non seulement immédiat mais rétroactif ! https://twitter.com/lefildactu1/status/1228249749373030402

@douginamug hi :)
The French government switched to Matrix, the German government evaluates free, open and federated messaging solutions, Nextcloud Talk became a great Slack replacement, public authorities in Germany consider a mass exodus from Twitter & Co after EuGH ruling, next stop Mastodon... Seems like we have both, the (political) momentum and the technology to make 2020 a great year for the free & open internet!

Hey all, quick question: Are there any really good insightful videos/lectures/articles on open source business models out there? I've been dwelling over the statement that the service/support-based model is not sustainable for a few weeks and all the expert opinions I heard so far just resolve to shifting away from open source licensing in some form or another.

I mostly use a mix of Google Scholar (for searching), MathSciNet (for more targeted searches, reviews, and high-quality bibtex), and DBLP (for bibtex of CS papers not in MathSciNet) but maybe this will convince me to add ZB into the mix.
@o0karen0o Thank you for bringing this up. I think the increasing number of services offered only to people who agree to install random apps is a big issue. I recently visited a city where a lot of people are using rented electric scooters (and it could have been helpful to use one for me too), but all these services seem to require apps, although just a web browser (or even sms, like with trams in some countries) should have been perfectly fine.
