Mozilla Google budget screaming 

Something is just wrong here... Mozilla just extended its deal with Google (making it the numero uno search engine) for something like 400 million dollars PER YEAR. For the next three years.

That is 1.2 BILLION dollars from 2020 to 2023.

If you cannot run a freaking NON-PROFIT on 400 MILLION dollars PER YEAR that means:

a) You are paying your executives too much.
b) You don't know how to manage a non-profit.
c) All of the above.

Hello everyone!

So lately, I've been learning more about GNU and the FSF.

I recently realized that Free software and Open source are not identical values.

Below I have 3 articles that could be helpful on the point:

Richard Stallman's, "Why Open Source misses the point of Free Software":

Free software definition (GNU):

Open source definition (OSI):

Stay Safe!

@JonYoder How would saying that fascists don't belong in our communities be trolling?

Fascists should feel unwelcome everywhere. They should feel unsafe everywhere.

They have no place in our society or among us.

Given the hate from the right we are getting on bird site right now, I’ll say it here as well.

ThinkPrivacy supports anti fascists in their struggles around the globe, we believe that all black lives matter, and we do not believe fascists or those who sympathize with fascists have any place in our communities.

This poem was nominated by UN as the best poem of 2009, Written by a child from Africa.

When I born, I black
When I grow up, I black
When I go in Sun, I black
When I scared, I black
When I sick, I black
And when I die, I still black

And you white fellow
When you born, you pink
When you grow up, you white
When you go in sun, you red
When you cold, you blue
When you scared, you yellow
When you sick, you green
And when you die, you gray

And you calling me colored?

@TheFuzzStone You can't leave politics out of FOSS. It is everywhere.

However, I don't see how anyone can compare the left to the right. One's taking away people's rights, literally murdering people, and the other is the left trying to stop that.

Things I realized I don't need:

- Websites to "remember me"

I can just use my password manager to log in every time. I use "Site bleacher" (a Firefox add-on) to remove all the cookies so I'm always logged out.

Just talked to someone who paid $1k to host a simple personal website for a year. I took 20 minutes and explained why that was the stupidest thing I've heard in a while
