In Defense of Richard Stallman
"By satisfying the mob today, we are sacrificing our future. That’s the real risk."
I think this is pretty important.
Heading to The Scottish Linux Users Group tonight at 7pm in the #CCA for a talk by Will Nelson on Video Streaming with Open Broadcaster Software.
We'll be playing a game called Bandit from overthewire.org - Level 0 is how to connect to a server using PuTTY/ssh, then for level 1 the password is in a readme file, level 2 the password is in a hidden file and so on. Teaching new concepts along the way. It's a lot of fun - if you're into that sort of thing.
Giving a talk (or more of a 'guided conversation' 🤓 ) tomorrow night (Tue) in #TheAvalon from 6:30pm: "Open source social media: ActivityPub and Mastodon - a gentle introduction"
@M This is the laptop I'd recommend as an inexpensive workstation, Thinkpad X230 - £99. 4Gb RAM, solid little machines, very compatible with Linux.
It's not much of a game at the moment, but I'm interested in using it as a base for a #VR world - and to experiment with community world building.
Take a look and re-live the 80s with me! 😂
I've created a new meetup.com group: Open Source Glasgow
The plan is to increase awareness for open source, teach some Linux basics and encourage self hosting of web services etc.
Our first event is "Linux command line basics for beginners", on Tuesday August 20th in #TheAvalon on Kent Road.
A place for communities in and around Glasgow, Scotland.
