Data Autonomy and Academic Freedom: great piece by philosophy scholar @tstahl arguing that Big Tech in academia not only fosters digital dependence but can undermine academic freedom. With a shout out to @SURF for creating a cooperative social media platform for Dutch scholars and students on Mastodon.

GNS provides a privacy-enhancing alternative to the Domain Name System. It was published as an #rfc. RFC authors Martin Schanzenbach & Bernd Fix will explain GNS and how the RFC process works.
Stephen Farrell advises on working with #standardisation bodies.
The #webinar is open to all. You can find the link to the BBB platform here: https://nlnet.nl/webinars/

Chaos Computer Club has put out a CfU (Call for Utopias). The idea is that people could do with stories of positive futures to be inspired and engaged in the present.

Utopias can be submitted in any and all forms and will be shown/acted out at #38C3. Deadline is on leap day.

It's in celebration of #CCC being 42 years old. Happy life, utopias and everything dear @CCC!

:boost_love: Boost if you think groups like @NGIZero @nlnetlabs and others should band together and fund a hard fork of that prioritizes trust and safety, and the needs of admins to protect their users from abuse.

⭐ Favorite if you would support with a little money, too.

Hi @downey, you probably mean NLnet.nl not NLnetLabs.nl. @nlnetlabs works on open standards to strengthen internet architecture while NLnet funds free and open source projects. We're friends but different organisations.

@downey @nlnetlabs no worries it happens a lot.

In a new round of funding 41 projects have received an NGI Zero grant. It is great to see so many people working on free and open source building blocks for the digital commons.

What stands out in this round is the large number of open hardware projects and the continued popularity of memory safe languages.

Here is an overview of the 41 projects: https://nlnet.nl/news/2024/20240212-announcing-projects.html

With thanks to the @EC_NGI European Commission's #NextGenerationInternet initiative.

Interesting funding opportunities from @openwebsearcheu. The project has launched two new open calls for grant applications. Researchers and innovators are invited to submit their ideas and can request funding between 50.000 and 150.000 Euro.

The Open Web Search project aims to develop an open European infrastructure for web search. Part of the project's budget is reserved for third-party funding.

The calls are open until April 4, 2024.

We're looking forward to go to #FOSDEM. There will be lots of talks by projects supported by NGI0. In fact, one talk short of the answer to life the universe and everything.
We'll also have a stand in Building K where you can come and collect your favourite hexagon stickers and/or talk to us.
There'll also be activities at #OFFDEM including an open table conversation. Plus even more things to do at FOSDEM Fringe.
We've listed it all here
https://nlnet.nl/events/20240203/index.html.
Hope to see you at FOSDEM!

Is anyone going to #FOSDEM by way of #Veldhoven on Friday afternoon or Saturday? There will be thousands of stickers at the Stickerkoning.nl ready to go to FOSDEM. But they don't have a ride because most of us are already in Brussels. It's at least two big boxes so not a task for train people to take on.

@nicorikken good idea, thank you. I'll edit the post.

NGIZero,
@NGIZero@mastodon.xyz avatar

@thibaultmol @nicorikken yes I think you're right. But it feels a bit unnatural delete and repost a message. So the edit is a second best.

NGIZero,
@NGIZero@mastodon.xyz avatar

@thibaultmol @nicorikken @sofiaritz oh reading your text now. Would be great if it does work :).

@nicorikken thanks, really appreciate it! They can contact Tessel.

We have someone who is so kind to pick up the stickers! Thanks everyone for sharing. The Fediverse is a kind place :). And special thanks to Peter and Nico!! #FOSDEM #hexstickers

$NewJob and $NewLife in $NewCity are all taking up so much of my headspace that I've had very little time to work on #moggie or any other passion projects lately.

In particular, this has impacted my @NGIZero grant work - I am still finding time to make progress on the code, but I just can't seem to bring myself to writing blog posts and pushing things over the line required to achieve the milestones.

I should push to github more often tho. Code is getting written...

NGIZero,
@NGIZero@mastodon.xyz avatar

@HerraBRE sounds like a lot of new things happening at once. Understandable there is limited space left. Really good to see a NoisySquare sticker in the wild, btw :).
Edit: sticker.

@HerraBRE it really was!

I love @NGIZero so much. It seems to be nearly 100% aligned with my hardware/software ideals, and doubling down constantly on those ideals.

@martijnarts that is nice to hear :).
