Guile and Guix are two of the nicest places to be in GNU currently, and quite frankly some of the most interesting; as far as relevance of GNU as an organization that does new and interesting things, there's only a small handful of projects that I really feel excited about the developments of. (GNU in its early days, was a very innovative project, but after some time I think stopped putting effort there.)
If there's a future to hope for in GNU, its path forward is lead by those projects.
Victory! Last night, Berkeley’s city council voted unanimously to ban the city government’s use of face recognition technology.
When we stand up for encryption, we empower users.
@snowden tells @guardian, "End-to-end encryption gives control to individuals and the devices they use to send, receive and encrypt communications, not to the companies and carriers that route them." https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/oct/15/encryption-lose-privacy-us-uk-australia-facebook
#OnThisDay (October 17), 1982, the Sunday Independent published an article about a couple in Plymouth, England - the Osbornes, and specifically how they got a sperm contributor for Mrs. Osborne's pregnancy despite Mr. Osborne being trans & therefore spermless.
"Said Ossie: 'The day Sandra broke the good news to me that she was pregnant, I was absolutely ecstatic. I couldn't believe it at first. I had never been so happy in all my life.'"

Now that the 0.20 release is out, we have to start the work on the next one.
After some discussions (https://governance.funkwhale.audio/d/0RJWr5Ts/a-roadmap-for-funkwhale-0-21), we have agreed on a roadmap for the 0.21 and 0.22 releases.
#Funkwhale 0.21 will focus on supporting podcasts, and easier audio publication overall (https://governance.funkwhale.audio/d/s7GTeHwU/podcast-support), in an effort to make the platform more useful to creators.
We'll also redesign the sidebar and navigation, as outlined in https://governance.funkwhale.audio/d/m9LlGf4T/redesign-of-the-sidebar-navigation
As with every release, we'll implement a handful of anti-abuse features: federated reports, screening for signups and enforced email verification
Due date: Q1 2020
We also agreed to make Funkwhale 0.22 a stability release. It means we won't introduce any new feature, but focus on stability, enhancements and bugfixes. Depending on how it goes, Funkwhale 0.22 could turn into Funkwhale 1.0, our first official stable release!
Due date: hard to guess that far in the future, but probably Q2 or Q3 2020 ;)

Mastodon v3.0.0 is out 🎉
There are a lot of new features, changes and fixes. You can read it all here: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v3.0.0
I will be starting the upgrade for every instance on Masto.host and expect that during the upgrade there will be around a minute of downtime.
@eliotberriot Hey, I wanted to look at some mastodon usage data and remembered your mnm.social project. It redirects me to a god wallpapers page so I am wondering if that project is still alive?
