  • hpr3297 (2021-03-23) "Nextcloud Application Updating" by ToeJet.
    • Comment 1: ychaouche on 2021-05-02: "safe ?"

      What if an updated app isn't compatible with current nextcloud version ?

  • hpr3317 (2021-04-20) "Reading a manifesto: Towards A Cooperative Technology Movement" by clacke.
    • Comment 6: Aaron C on 2021-05-01: "Raises an excellent point"

      I'm just commenting to say that this manifesto and subsequent show makes an excellent point. The free software community as it stands has good and as discussed well guarded principles with no compromise. While this is admirable it is also what is killing the movement.

      Like language all movements must eventually morph or evolve over time or they die off, it is completely acceptable to maintain a core set of tenets of course, but having a figurehead who uses the internet in bizarre and arcane ways makes free software like more a paranoid nest of conspiracy theorists than it does to make technological progress by freeing the user from the constraints of mega corporations.

      Free software is inevitably political but the mocking and jeering of people who still use proprietary software scared off companies and created the open source movement, which if anything made it easier for mega corporations to profit off of the collectivised free labour of programmers who cared enough to donate their time.

      To me the free software stalwarts were the progenitors of their own worst enemy, which is open source. They allowed it to happen themselves and fostered the likes of Google and Facebook. The FSF concentrates too much on acting like a single-state communist party with it's attention focused on creating a cult of personality around Stallman.

      I agree the roots of the movement today should reflect more social needs, creating software for the good of the people even if that makes software socialist.

    • Comment 2: Kevin O'Brien on 2021-05-01: "Really liked the show"

      It is great to hear about the podcasts you follow. I recognize many of them as shows I used to follow, though frankly since I retired I have been putting my energy into other matters. I'm turning 70 in a few months and have other priorities now.
