It’s been an epic week in Matrix with announcing adopting Matrix, work starting on native Matrix video/voip conferencing (at last!) & now the Royal Navy experimenting with low bandwidth Matrix. One can only imagine what next week will bring ;) 🚀

Oh hello... native matrix: URI support in 90!!!

Some people work on raising awareness about how companies and services can (mis)use personal data. Others work on offering alternatives.

All have my gratitude for building a better world.

You know what: it'd be great if people who need accessibility didn't go around calling other people's work "trash". I get it: accessibility is hard, and required for people to use a computer—but you know how proprietary platforms deal with it? They pay developers. You know what Linux users do for it? They fucking whine about it, and then they go out and say that any effort made is trash.

Well, guess what: stuff doesn't fix itself.

Part 3 of my series on how GNOME development works is out now. This time: How to get things you want.

Is your @matrix account really yours? Maybe!

@federico3 @rysiek Acknowledging your own privilege just means being grateful that you have been given chances that others might not have been given no matter how hard they worked.

It does not mean denigrating your own hard work or that of others.

It's a point of humility and a self-check to maybe not throw out a knee-jerk "meh, it's free software, patches welcome" the next time a person runs into an issue due to a sharp edge in some free software project. Maybe they have the opportunity to contribute. Maybe they don't. You don't know their life.

Fragments will get a big V2 update soon! 😎

Completely rewritten from scratch to make use of GTK4, libadwaita - and of course Rust!

A small sneak peek...

Can open sometimes be too open? Here's a post about what the @gnome community wish it didn't do when deploying its @matrix instance, and how it's going to fix it.

I've been working on a series of blog posts on how power works within GNOME.

It took me a while to get my head around this when I joined the project, I'm hoping this will be of use for the next generation of newcomers.

Part 1 is out now:

Today's reminder that open source needs paid people writing docs - the PDF spec is Nice, actually, and I'm jealous.

Low Bandwidth Matrix is coming... matrix developers may want to take a look at and help us experiment and build it out :)

I’m not going to pretend meat wasn’t good, but damn, the vegetarian options we have today are really great!
