Hoy hace 6 años que murió Aaron Swartz por la presión del Gobierno de EEUU. Él solo quería y luchaba por hacer el internet más libre. #AaronSwartz
You have a limited amount of time in this world. You decide whether to spend it being “neutral” (legitimising trillion-dollar surveillance capitalists) or working with those of us trying to raise awareness about their abuses so we can actually regulate them and get funding for ethical alternatives that don’t rely on them. If you’re doing the former don’t you dare criticise those doing the latter. We’re not the ones punching down and we don’t owe you an explanation for doing the right thing.
And, as an easy way to recall his fight, watch "The Internet's Own Boy", the heartbreaking and at the same time heartlifting documentary that tells his life and story.
You can watch it freely and for free at Internet Archive:
But his life is more known because he dared to confront huge educational institutions and scientific publishers that try to keep all the power of human knowledge to their benefit.
He took part in the creation of RSS, Creative Commons, Reddit and Markdown, among other initiatives.

I need someone to draw simple flowers in vector graphics, ranging from completely dried/dead to healthy in 4-5 steps. I need black line art on blank background to better fit in the flat design of the app.
The fact this is for OSS doesn’t mean I want it for free. I have budget for the app, although not corporate sized.
The app is a water intake tracker/reminder. The flowers are to represent the hydration level of the user.
Boosts are also appreciated!

Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels. News Article for Reference: https://www.jiji.com/sp/article?k=2020052500387 In response to these reports, it is expected that lawsuits and disclosure requests will become more publicly known; and government agencies will order stricter enforcement in addition to tightening regulations. However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately. Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on mstdn.jp and mastodon.cloud starting June 30, 2020. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.
