Have you ever tried Unity with #Ubuntu 18.04? If yes, which one do you recommend for someone who wants to stick with #Unity?
- Ubuntu 16.04 (older distro, but Unity by default, probably better integration with rest of apps)
- Ubuntu 18.04 (newer, but I have to remove #GNOME and install Unity from universe repository)
I actually built a little toy service (that I will also eventually open source) which converts any RSS feed to an ActivityPub actor that you can subscribe to in Mastodon (or any other AP-compatible client).
Play with it if you like! It is SUPER rough and most feeds end up horribly rendered in Mastodon but it's still kinda cool to see it work: https://bots.tinysubversions.com/convert/

Iceweasel: "I can't stand just sitting," she muttered, looking at the worknots, proudly lazing. "I need to do something."
Dis: "We also serve, who sit and fart." It made Iceweasel smile.

Copyright, EU Article 13 Show more
Video explaining why the EU's Article 13 about copyright changes is a bad idea. (Warning: nsfw language.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89ZkydX0FPw
I wrote to one of my MEPs to outline my problems with Article 13 (basically, it defends big copyright holders but not small ones, and it completely screws small websites to stop big ones like YouTube from violating; it's a good goal but a bad implementation) and my letter is at https://www.kryogenix.org/days/2018/07/03/article-13-mep/ if you'd like to write your own.
Have you checked @nextcloud 14 RC1 that was released last week? There are too many good new features to mention, but my favorite is the new signup program that helps you start using #Nextcloud RIGHT AWAY: https://nextcloud.com/signup/

Draft: Why ActivityPub is the future https://source.joinmastodon.org/mastodon/blog/blob/master/content/posts/2018-06-27_Why-ActivityPub-is-the-future/index.md
Let me know if you think it's convincing!
@hollyjahangiri but theft and copyright infringement *are* different beasts. And this difference *is* important to how we deal with it in law, and in practice.
When somebody samples a 2s of a music track, and then uses it somewhere in the background of their DJ set to create a whole new song, how exactly did they "steal" anything from anyone?
Is the original author worse off because of the 2s sample?
Does the 2s sample influence the market for the original work?
“Before Twitter, before algorithmic timelines filtered our reality for us, before surveillance capitalism, there was RSS: Really Simple Syndication … As we move away from the centralised web to the peer web, it’s time to rediscover, re-embrace, and reclaim RSS.”
