Is there anyone who would want to contribute to a StackExchange community, where Dutch learners and speakers are asking and answering questions around the language?

Feel free to retoot :)

We pay to Steam, Netflix, Amazon prime, Spotify. But not to Wikipedia,, Librivox, Project Gutenberg, for our favourite Linux distro.

The huge asymmetry between corporate and community has not emerged naturally. It is a product of our choices of not supporting community oriented projects.

The short conveniences vs the long-term good. We always chose the former.

In face of surveillance capitalism, we must and must change.

Hello everydual, I'm currently a 4th year student. My interests are mathematical/computational neuroscience and philosophy (thinking of pursuing a PhD/MSc on mathematical modelling). This instance looks fairly interesting. I look forward to meeting cool smart people. Other notable topics of interest: GNU/Linux (Ubuntu/Kali/Mint), FOSS/H, Python, Rust, LatAm history/politics. #introductions

Random fact: this is my favorite picture

I am shocked to find out that the Java Language Specification never has officially been translated to Latin

Thinking about it, there is no sane reason to believe that we exist.

What's the worth of Netflix, if it hasn't got Knight Rider on it?

I think Candy Crush is a stupid game

It has come to my attention that there are those on Mastodon who think that anyone who doesn't agree with their politics should be cast out of the federation.

Please stand up for Freedom of Speech.

True Freedom of Speech means you will have to deal with the fact that not everyone thinks the same way as you and will therefor come across views that either make you happy or extremly angry.

Communication is the key to making the world a better place and the only way that progress can be made.

If you lock people out becase they don't agree with you, you are only hurting those you claim to care about because those with extreme views will continue to speak, with the only difference being that no one will challenge them.

Arrogance is the biggest threat to our society.

Hey Fediverse,

I am looking for science fiction (short) stories playing in the outer space, that are public domain or creative commons licensed.
