Some updates on federation:

The code powering the demo in the previous toot has been merged in the develop branch and deployed on open.audio.

This means that any public track published on open.audio can be searched from Mastodon and played via a single click.

I'm still looking for a way to have Mastodon embed the track directly via its audio player, but I'm going to call it a day ;)

LibreOffice tip of the day: in Calc, you can protect cells via the menu: Format > Cells > Protection. To prevent insertion, deletion, renaming, move/copying of sheets, use Tools > Protect Sheet. More info here: help.libreoffice.org/latest/en

Yet another reason not to trust corporate #datafarms with your personal, family, or community history. Verizon is blocking attempts by web archivists to save the content of public YahooGroups before it all gets deleted:

In 20 years this could be FB or Reddit.

Quem puder apoiar o librefix, recomendo. Eles têm muita coisa boa e tão com muito pouco apoio pra importância do projeto (só 153 reais por mês).

India's Information Technology Act is designed to make it hard for states to shutdown the internet. But #NetShutdowns happen anyway. How?

"Twitter, like GTD [#GettingThingsDone], fails to provides tools for fitting meaning-morsels together into creative assemblages of higher value."
