Certaines personnes semblent penser que cet extrait est défaitiste.
Bien au contraire. Au vu de la gravité de la situation (non pas uniquement climatique) perdre espoir est le seul moyen de cesser de faire des concessions qui bénéficient toujours aux mêmes, politiques ou fortunés

@Nofb64000 @Fishou @devnull @redfrog Le Pen en Trump à la française en moins intelligent? La France a une majorité structurelle à gauche. Sauf que les gauchistes entre eux, c'est pire que l'adversaire. Puis t'as les classes populaires qui votent fasciste. Et les fascistes qui vont amadouer les classes populaires en favorisant les super - riches. Seul question, vont ils s'en sortir sans répéter les gaffes des allemands. Jusqu'au réveil, douloureux ou pas.

So I was recently asked why I prefer to use free and open source software over more conventional and popular proprietary software and services.

A few years ago I was an avid Google user. I was deeply embedded in the Google ecosystem and used their products everywhere. I used Gmail for email, Google Calendar and Contacts for PIM, YouTube for entertainment, Google Newsstand for news, Android for mobile, and Chrome as my web browser.

I would upload all of my family photos to Google Photos and all of my personal documents to Google Drive (which were all in Google Docs format). I used Google Domains to register my domain names for websites where I would keep track of my users using Google Analytics and monetize them using Google AdSense.

I used Google Hangouts (one of Google’s previous messaging plays) to communicate with friends and family and Google Wallet (with debit card) to buy things online and in-store.

My home is covered with Google Homes (1 in my office, 1 in my bedroom, 1 in the main living area) which I would use to play music on my Google Play Music subscription and podcasts from Google Podcasts.

I have easily invested thousands of dollars into my Google account to buy movies, TV shows, apps, and Google hardware devices. This was truly the Google life.

Then one day, I received an email from Google that changed everything.

“Your account has been suspended”

Just the thing you want to wake up to in the morning. An email from Google saying that your account has been suspended due to a perceived Terms of Use violation. No prior warning. No appeals process. No number to call. Trying to sign in to your Google account yields an error and all of your connected devices are signed out. All of your Google data, your photos, emails, contacts, calendars, purchased movies and TV shows. All gone.

I nearly had a heart attack, until I saw that the Google account that had been suspended was in fact not my main personal Google account, but a throwaway Gmail account that I created years prior for a project. I hadn’t touched the other account since creation and forgot it existed. Apparently my personal Gmail was listed as the recovery address for the throwaway account and that’s why I received the termination email.

Although I was able to breathe a sigh of relief this time, the email was wake up call. I was forced to critically reevaluate my dependence on a single company for all the tech products and services in my life.

I found myself to be a frog in a heating pot of water and I made the decision that I was going to jump out.

Leaving Google

Today there are plenty of lists on the internet providing alternatives to Google services such as this and this. Although the “DeGoogle” movement was still in its infancy when I was making the move.

The first Google service I decided to drop was Gmail, the heart of my online identity. I migrated to Fastmail with my own domain in case I needed to move again (hint: glad I did, now I self host my email). Fastmail also provided calendar and contacts solutions so that took care of leaving Google Calendar and Contacts.

Here are some other alternatives that I moved to:

Migrating away from Google was not a fast or easy process. It took years to get where I am now and there are still several Google services that I depend on: YouTube and Google Home.

Eventually, my Google Home’s will grow old and become unsupported at which point hopefully the Mycroft devices have matured and become available for purchase. YouTube may never be replaced (although I do hope for projects like PeerTube to succeed) but I find the compromise of using only one or two Google services to be acceptable.

At this point losing my Google account due to a mistake in their machine learning would largely be inconsequential and my focus has shifted to leaving Amazon which I use for most of my shopping and cloud services.

The reason that I moved to mostly FOSS applications is that it seems to be the only software ecosystem where everything works seamlessly together and I don’t have to cede control to any single company. Alternatively I could have simply split my service usage up evenly across Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and Apple but I don’t feel that they would have worked as nicely together.

Overall I’m very happy with the open source ecosystem. I use Ubuntu with KDE on all of my computers and Android (no GApps) on my mobile phone. I’ve ordered the PinePhone “Brave Heart” and hope to one day be able to use it or one of its successors as a daily driver with Ubuntu Touch or Plasma Mobile.

I don’t want to give the impression that I exclusively use open source software either, I do use a number of proprietary apps including: Sublime Text, Typora, and Cloudron.

Le problème d'un gouvernement qui a peur de sa propre police au point de lui offrir l'impunité totale, c'est qu'un jour la victime n'est pas un jeune noir de banlieue facile à diaboliser, mais un papa sans histoire auquel l'opinion peut s'identifier.

Donc sur c'est vraiment à chier...
Des personnages tout pourris, une histoire sans queue ni tête, une absence complète de réflexions philosophiques, sociologiques, religieuses ou historiques..
C'est formaté pour les croyants de toutes obédiences sans recul ni intelligence et surtout sans éléments importants pour éviter de choquer ...
J'espère qu'il n'y aura pas de saison 2 même les question scénario étaient mieux branlés...

I'm soldering 👩‍🏭some DI boxes for a musician and friend of mine.
These Bo Hansen boxes are considered one of the finest DI around. Commercial or DIY.

*Happy*. 🤩🎸

cher et chère mastonaute.
Tu aimes ton/ta/tes compagnon·ne·s ?
Profite du 14 février prochain pour ne rien acheter ce jour-là mais lui offrir au choix une partie mémorable de baise amoureuse.

Ainsi tu participeras modestement à :
- la décroissance
- une pression économique sur le gouvernement de l'Ordre
- redonner son vrai sens à cette fête
- mettre à mal le levier économique (seul levier qui intéresse les ordu... membres de la finance)
- forcer les commerçants à revenir à leur vrai métier
