Let's not all live only on social networks, especially not centralised & walled-in networks. Create your own personal corner on the web as it was designed for! Visit my good old-fashioned at for information about me.

On my mastodon feed, I'll try to toot about various topics, mainly related to languages, natural language processing, open-source technology, privacy & security, and of course the occasional dog picture!

Working with (research) software metadata as linked open data? I just released codemetapy v2.2.0 (a python library) and codemeta-harvester v0.2 .. Builds on top of codemeta and The big picture of what we're building was already presented at the CLARIAH tech day back in March:

Setting up rootless containers with podman is not as painless as I had hoped.... mapping volume uid/gids is rather painful..

Just finished watching Obi-Wan Kenobi, I liked it a lot!

Here's a throwback to 2016 when I rewatched all the Star Wars movies and then composed a long piano medley of its themes:

The EU Commission is planning automatic CSAM scanning of your private communication – or total surveillance in the name of child protection. This would be the worst surveillance apparatus outside of China:

Excellent in-depth explanation from a Russian explaining how Russian propaganda makes people there perceive the war:

Sxmo will be presented at the Free Software Foundation's LibrePlanet 2022 conference tomorrow (sunday 20th of march)!

And the Lord did speak, but His followers could not hear.

Got a chance to talk to Miles Alan about his amazing projects:

* (Early days of) #Sxmo
* framebufferphone: new UI
* Mepo: new map app for Sxmo, fbp, Phosh, possibly PlaMo & more

I think all major social networks, companies, including platforms like google, facebook, instagram, twitch, steam should present a clear banner (по-русски) on their front page to all users accessing from a Russian IP. Show a counter message to the disinformation that state TV presents, reach at least the part of the population that has free internet access. Show them President Zelenski's speech to the Russian population. Free press is Putin's worst nemesis.

Я не знаю хорошо что сказать о страшном вторжернии сегодния :(, а ничего не сказать я тоже не хочу.. Я стою с украинском населении, и с многими русскими и белорусами кто хотим свободы и уже долго живут под гнетом диктаторов.
