Heheheh, one of my underused projects (mpris-scrobbler) made it to Fedora magazine:
That doesn't really convince me.
I agree with some of the statements that Mr. Barnard is making, like overwhelming beaurocracy and overcomplicated political aparatus in the EU, but I still think that it is something that can be made better, not ditched all together, but maybe I'm a victim of the "sunk cost" fallacy.
Personally I would attribute the failings of the EU to incompetence not malice and definitely not deliberated actions to strip individual country governments of "power".
This would be remote, contract-based work for now, with a chance to go full-time later in the year (assuming all continues going well). You'd be creating free / open source software.
Metal of the day: Carcass - Heartwork
Prismo 0.5.0 has been released! 🎉 https://prismo.xyz/posts/b65fe14a-7a23-4053-9b2d-88d20d840337
Announcing first-class Mercurial support on SourceHut
Implemented activity delivery for #ActivityPub-PHP! Just need to put in inbox forwarding and write tests for both and the library will have a complete AP implementation! Still lots of work to do after that, but I'm really excited to reach that milestone.
How does one go about commissioning or licensing work from creative folks (musicians, digital artists) in a way that is fair to both? Any handy resources or guides? I'd rather not go to massive content-farm-factory websites.
For what it's worth I'm in need of some music for a technically minded #ActivityPub podcast idea I have floating in my head and what better way to support the Fediverse than to actually look at paying for a license for some intro music and B roll music.
mpris-scrobbler, the user daemon for scrobbling to listenbrainz.org, libre.fm and last.fm has released v0.3.2.
It includes improvements to validating songs to submit to the services.
I currently work on an (old)reddit inspired link aggregator powered by #ActivityPub.
