Anyone know anything about the history of the Participatory Culture Foundation?

It would be intriguing to discuss why they couldn't achieve their founding aspirations with their early free code projects; Downhill Battle, Broadcast Machine, Democracy Player/ Miro, VideoBomb? As well as what is similar and different about the PeerTube project:

2020 was a record-braking year for data leaks.
That's why we do not collect any user data, and why you should be mindful that if you give yours it *will* eventually be leaked. (via @Canalys@twitter.com ) canalys.com/newsroom/cybersecu

unsettling screenshot of a tory being interviewed from inside his own house 

something chilling about the interior shown here, the environment a tory chooses to inhabit. crystal doorknob too high on the door. the door itself contains neoclassical pilars. a pillared fireplace made of chalk supports a crystal plinth for a milkwax candle, never burned. the candle is itself a neoclassical pillar. a crystal mirror reflects the edge of more chalk, more crystal. the walls are arsenic, coated in chalk.

Two competing open letters were posted on GitHub towards the end of March, 2021. One of them voices support for Richard #Stallman, the other viciously attacks him and demands that he is kept out of leadership positions in any and all organizations. A simple #Python program can show you the popularity of each of the letters over time on a chart.
