Since my mention earlier about Open Street Maps "not quite being there yet," I've made an account and begun contributing. Updated some location hours, corrected some location descriptions, and just added a local brewery location.
Feels good to help! I've never gotten involved in like, wikipedia or anything like that, but this is something I feel like I can actually offer help to.
@xaloc just made my first edit!
Finally found Fruux to replace Google Calendar for me, getting me off one one more google service.
My progress so far:
* Chrome -> Firefox
* Google -> DuckDuckGo
* Gmail -> ProtonMail
* Google Music -> Plex
* Google Drive -> Sync
* Google Docs -> LibreOffice (with Sync for sync)
* Google Keep -> Standard Notes
* Google Calendar -> Fruux
Still on Android and still using Google Maps to find info like business hours. I wish OSM were there, but its just not.
@joewintergreen I did a project for a while to get more familiar with machine learning where I trained a small neural network to identify nazis on twitter. Ran that on a dedicated box for a while and got a database of twitter nazis that I turned into a blocklist. There's always more, unfortunately :(
@shinmera looking great so far!
Spinning up a Plex server has been the most fun I've had tinkering with things in a long, long time. I discovered it during my back pain issue (getting better!) so it was nice to have something to play with. Pulled out an old gaming rig with 2.5tb of SSD space on it and getting it seeded with music, tv, movies, etc. Excited to have my friends join in and pool some stuff together.
@freakazoid @Laurelai I think there's a conception of anarchy that gets seeded into peoples mind at a pretty young age that makes them write it off. I'll just call it "Skate Punk Anarchy" based on my experience with it. When I was a teen, people would talk about wanting "Anarchy" in the sense of "no rules, do what I want!" like the embodiment of being a rebel. Obviously that's not what anarchists want, but I'd bet that's the perception most people got and never thought twice.
