As I said on the G+ post, we need to say more of these things, to more people, more of the time. And sometimes, we all need some of these things said to us.

(via @Kate Turnbole on G+)

Hey you. Yes you. I see you.

I see you struggling with invisible illness.
I see you fighting with brain weasels.
I see you worrying about being a good parent, teaching your kids respect, inclusion, acceptance and love.
I see you hurting for your sick furbabies, doing everything you can for them.
I see you hurtling yourself against the walls of injustice.
I see you pushing back at the weight of your own fears.
I see you staring into the ruins of an unchangeable past.
I see you standing on the edge of a brand new journey.

I see you. I love you.
You're awesome. You're strong. You're brave.
Always keep fighting.

#Valentine’s Day is the one day of the year we come together and celebrate #love. But there’s a lot more to love than what’s typically associated with the #holiday – bouquets of red roses, heart-shaped boxes of chocolate, cards from secret admirers and so on.

Love is about #understanding, #compassion and #joy. It’s about #kindness and #generosity. And about giving in to something greater than yourself. In many ways, #volunteers embody all of these qualities. That’s why we’re highlighting 7 ways to #volunteer and put that love into action.

This #ValentinesDay, celebrate love in its truest form by giving your time to support and care for others in your #community. You might just find nothing gives you the warm fuzzies quite like #volunteering.
7 Ways to Volunteer on Valentine’s Day & Beyond

Conscription - Yes or No?


"In a country of more than 329 million people, the extraordinary potential for service is largely untapped," said Joe Heck, chairman of the National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service. On Wednesday, he and his fellow commissioners unveiled the panel's interim report to Congress.

Of America's younger generations, Heck said, "Generation Z represents a huge potential for this country if we can find ways to encourage a greater number of them to serve."

Do you try to persuade them, or force them into service?

"Young Americans' interest in service is evident," the report states, "given their appetite to volunteer: Over 28 percent of millennials report volunteering in 2017, performing roughly 1.5 billion hours of community service."

After traveling around the country to hear from members of the public, the commission wrote, "We heard from people who believe strongly that the United States should pursue a transformative effort to involve many more Americans in military, national... show more
 
A Sense of Place


What is the appropriate relationship between humans and the whole living system? In the act of honoring the connection and dependency that we have with the whole web of life lies the possibility of a deep and abiding communion. If, as author Wendell Berry has written, “you can’t know who you are until you know where you are,” then the process of discovering and achieving a sense of place may be the most important step in our life’s journey.

Honey: The Precious Nectar that Links Tradition with the Future of the New Generation
https://www.fondazioneslowfood.com/en/honey-the-precious-nectar-that-links-tradition-with-the-future-of-the-new-generation/

The Ogiek Honey Slow Food Presidium was launched to protect the Mau Forest ecosystem and promote the value of the Ogiek people’s ancestral culture through honey, their most important product. The Macodev (Mariashoni Community Development) cooperative, a community-based organization that brings together 12 groups of beekeepers, is working to increase production volumes, differentiate the various types of honey produced, improve packaging, and promote the honey in shops, restaurants, and hotels.

Three weeks ago I wrote a guide about FLOSS tools to create a forum or community. I updated this original post a fair bit and published it on my blog. I added lots of links to the source code and example websites of forums. I also expanded on most of the alternatives. Lastly I added Discourse as an option.

Giving Back, One Basketball Court at a Time
When basketball courts end up with cracks, dips and divots, Dan Peterson and company step in. With the help of artists and community volunteers, Project Backboard resurfaces public courts and turns them into fly, large-scale pieces of art. The organization has brought new life and sleek aesthetics to over two dozen basketball courts around the world—including in Dan’s hometown of New Rochelle, New York.

Untold Stories Of Everyday Innovators Inside Organizations - If you are a leader, I challenge you to democratize innovation and give everyone a platform for innovation


The actual linked article is quite interesting to read and reminded me of two occasions that I have taken up the offer by CEOs of two large IT companies where they challenged the audience to come up with creative and innovative ideas.

I took both up on their offers (neither responded) but the one was a very public Tier 1 ISP in South Africa and my suggestion back then was to zero-rate data for educational and certain government sites - something which an ISP can do. No response, so I sent a reminder and then did a follow-up via a contact I knew in the organisation. Nothing. And ironically a few years later this type of zero-rating actually did happen.

CEOs: Don't challenge the public or your staff to come up with ideas and then ignore them. It is incredibly cheap and shallow. Organisations have such a wealth of untapped innovation as well as experience outside the actual job being done, but mo... show more

Kokota

Islet of Hope


Mbarouk Mussa Omar is from a small East African Island called Pemba. Nearly ten years ago he visited a tiny neighbouring islet called Kokota and was shocked by what he saw. Kokota was teetering towards collapse, and Mbarouk knew climate change and deforestation were the culprits. He desperately wanted to help Kokota, but what could one poor man from Pemba possibly do?

Kokota: The Islet of Hope tells the story of Mbarouk’s quest to help Kokota. This short introduces viewers to resilient people living on the front lines of climate change and tells the story of how these unlikely heroes have managed to innovatively adapt to a warming climate while reforesting their island.

Olompali

A Hippie Odyssey


“Olompali: A Hippie Odyssey” is the story an ordinary man caught up in extraordinary times, whose life is forever changed by the social upheaval going on around him.

Embracing the spirit of the counterculture revolution during the Summer of Love, wealthy Marin County businessman Don McCoy transforms his life from conservative entrepreneur to beneficent hippie dropout, using his family inheritance to lease Rancho Olompali, a 700-acre estate north of San Francisco, to start a commune. He invites a couple dozen like-minded friends and families to join him in his dream of creating a community where they can live without monetary concerns in an atmosphere of love, peace and freedom. The group becomes known throughout the Bay Area as the Chosen Family - Marin’s archetypal entry into the legend and lore of the Sixties hippie commune movement.

My Irnik


A young father teaches his son about the value of shared adventures, exploration and his ancestral Inuit heritage. Set in Arctic Canada, Conor, a young father and a native of Montreal fell in love with the northern way of life and with a woman from there. Now, with a young family, he helps to pass on the native traditions and ancestral culture to his son, as he learns them himself. In this surreal landscape and isolated community, these two are bonding over a shared love of the outdoors, dogsledding, exploration and new adventures.

Moodle x Nextcloud: “I enjoy being a part of two open source communities whose efforts empower many people”


You may have heard about the release of Moodle 3.6, which comes with built-in Nextcloud and was announced last Monday. A great occasion to get to know one of the great minds behind the project: Jan Dageförde, from the University of Münster, who answered a few questions for us.

Who are you and where are you from?


I am a PhD student in information systems at the University of Münster, Germany. As part of my work for the university, I co-lead the technical team that is responsible for the development and operations of Learnweb, which is a Moodle-based e-learning platform that we offer to more than 45,000 students and 7,500 employees of our University. In that context, my colleagues, a few students, and I developed solutions tha... show more
 

Moodle 3.6 is here with Nextcloud integration!


Today, the Moodle team has released version 3.6, which comes with built-in Nextcloud support as well as many other improvements like enhanced course overview & dashboard, GDPR privacy settings, Media uploads in assignment feedback and more.

Nextcloud integration


Last year, we announced the Nextcloud Education Edition, developed in collaboration with Moodle, DeiC, regio iT, the TU Berlin and Univention. Moodle founder and Moodle Pty Ltd CEO Martin Dougiamas gave a keynote address at the Nextcloud conference later that month, detailing the project and its goals.

A series of apps was introduced, from ORCID authentication to the then-new Dashboard app (which gets a major update in the upcoming Nextcloud 15!). The Moodle integration was an external app, requiring both Moodle and Nextcloud components. Work on this has continued, in no small part by the team of students from the Univers... show more

Krita drawing - 3508 × 3000 - 6,8 MB PNG - A new and improved version of a drawing I made long time ago. This time made it in colour and added some extra logos. Hubzilla and Mastodon over the little fire and WeChat instead of G+ that will soon close.

There are plenty more projects in the federation and the fediverse and as all the art I publish on this profile is CC-by you can add and rework the image as much as you like. The image is maybe a bit to detailed to make and effective meme, but if any of you can use it to get more people fitted around the fire I would be pleased. In 250dpi it can also be a poster of 35x30 cm...

Attending 35c3, FOSDEM, SCALE? Meet Nextcloud!


This winter again, Nextcloud will attend some great events to meet our beloved community! With, of course, a full program: booths, workshops, presentations, and lots of time to meet you all.

35c3 – the 35th edition of Chaos Computer Congress


We have never had an official booth at the CCC Congress and we thought it was time to fix that. So, this year, we registered for an assembly in the Open Infrastructure Orbit, where we’ll have the luck to sit between like-minded projects! Don’t forget to watch out for our big blue Nextcloud flag, and come say hi!- While it’s too early to register for workshops, we have already made some plans. If you want to get familiar with Nextcloud, consider attending our Nextcloud install workshop in partnership with CryptoParty. For this workshop you’ll need to bring either a laptop, or a laptop and a raspberry pi.

Nextcloud 15 RC1 is here for testing, earn swag for upgrade bugs


Image/photoWe are making swift progress: Nextcloud 15 is near to a release thus it is time for the first release candidate. Last week we did Beta 2 and there have been at least 40 changesets included since then. We ask everyone, as always, to help us test it.

Release Candidate


With the release candidate, we’re at a point where our dev team says: “sure, we have some open issues we want to address for final, but we’re largely at the point where we can’t find any issues anymore. So we need help!”

Our internal testing has revealed problems, those problems have been resolved and we can’t find serious problems anymore. But Nextcloud is used in many more ways than we realistically can test: on all kinds of devices, using a crazy variety of web se... show more

Another good take on the "Nothing to hide" argument by Bruce Schneier:
For social norms to change, people need to deviate from these inherited norms. People need the space to try alternate ways of living without risking arrest or social ostracization. People need to be able to read critiques of those norms without anyone’s knowledge, discuss them without their opinions being recorded, and write abou
