France's largest free software organisation @Framasoft has just launched a crowdfunding campaign for an open federated events tool, Mobilizon:

joinmobilizon.org/en/

Mobilizon would replace Facebook Events and similar closed services.

It would use ActivityPub, so people would be able to organise events on the Fediverse.

You can also follow its Mastodon account here:

A vulnerability in WhatsApp allowed attackers to inject commercial spyware, developed by NSO Group, on to phones.

The spyware could be transmitted through a call, even if the call was unanswered.

It is unclear how many phones were targeted.

Are you not feeling motivated to go outside for a healthy walk? How about downloading the application StreetComplete from @fdroidorg and start helping out OpenStreetMap by adding missing data about the places around you!

I started today and it made my daily walks a lot more fun! It also motivates me to walk even more and visit new places that I wouldn't visit otherwise. :)

"Most people want to opt-in to what they want to follow, be that a news feed, a celebrity, a friend, or family. Most people do not want to be force-fed a constant stream of manipulated content to catch and keep their attention."

Attention #Fennec #FDroid / #Firefox users: The critical 66.0.4 update is now available via F-Droid to fix the broken add-on support because of an expired certificate. That was incredibly fast for F-Droid standards! Don't forget to revert any unofficial fixes. f-droid.org/app/org.mozilla.fe

Meanwhile #Ubuntu users are still waiting for the latest Firefox update to be deployed. 🙄 #ArmagAddon #Android #Mozilla

A doctor at my annual appointment: "Ever since you told me about medical software safety last year, I see articles about how bad things are on a regular basis! I don't know how I managed to be oblivious to this before talking to you." #AlwaysAGoodTimeToTalkAboutSoftwareFreedom

GNU Guix 1.0 is out!

gnu.org/software/guix/blog/201

Proud to have been a part of the project since 2013. I haven't been active in awhile, but I have contributed a lot of packages, a Linux container implementation, a build system for programs written in Ruby, importer tools for PyPI and RubyGems, the 'guix environment' and 'guix publish' tools, and probably some small stuff I've forgotten.

I'm not too worried about Librem One in the software forks... I don't suspect it will impact the fediverse or original projects too much, whether or not some decisions end up being misguided. The original branches will survive; it's free software.

But I do think @purism has a good and really critical mission with making libre hardware. There aren't many options that are modern and fairly easily available. It seems like the org is biting off a lot; I hope the hardware work continues.

Mozilla is shutting down their IRC servers and moving to Discord, a proprietary chat service.

Hey Mozilla, aren't we forgetting something here? Our very own "Mozilla Pledge for a Healthy Internet” states:

> Principle 2 The internet is a global public resource that must remain open and accessible.

> Principle 6 The effectiveness of the internet as a public resource depends upon interoperability (protocols, data formats, content), innovation and decentralized participation worldwide.

Here's a reminder that Facebook owns Instagram - they left millions of Instagram passwords unencrypted on internal servers, just like they did with Facebook accounts.

Stay safe, don't re-use passwords!

It’s easy to tell a story about a plucky bunch of adventurers joining forces with the heir to the kingdom to fight the dark lord. It’s hard to tell a story about millions of electors in liberal democracies uniting with each other to fight climate change.
