schestowitzI observe this SUPER-closely this week. You can find updates in IRC/Diaspora/other and a more moderate tone in Techrights posts. Gemini/IPFS have IRC logs too.Mar 24 03:23
schestowitzIt's not pretty, but RMS will get through this. We need to be AS LOUD as those trolls. They try to pester us in IRC now. They = Garrett mostly. Mar 24 03:23
schestowitzWhy did the FSF give an award to him? And Deb (OSI)? And Kuhn? They attack the FSF's founder. Kuhn has just been cited in Planet Debian: 24 03:23

schestowitz                    <p>Recently I was given two LED desk lamps to improve lighting for video meetings, these are just lamps with three controls, on/off, temperature, and brightness. In the misguided vein of “make it an IOT device with an app to monetize human data” mentality the temperature and brightness control aren’t just knobs on the lamp, no, they are controlled by a proprietary app that you are forced (well… unless youMar 24 09:10
schestowitzhack it (as I explain below)) to download to your phone or computer. You also have to agree to the terms of service to install and use the application. After installing the app you must “activate” the lamp in the app by connecting it to your WiFi and the Internet.</p></blockquote></li>Mar 24 09:11

Techrights-secIt's frustrating how full of shit some of those people voluntarily become.Mar 24 12:25
Techrights-secIf they scratched the surface they get the facts instead of spreading severalMar 24 12:25
Techrights-seclauers of lies.  Sam is just one of the many gullible tools in that area.Mar 24 12:25
Techrights-secSome of his coverage of other topics is good but that last link is over the top.Mar 24 12:25
Techrights-secHe is engaging in libel at this point however it it is very widespreadMar 24 12:25
schestowitzHe already did THREE anti-RMS pieces, see TM for the listMar 24 12:25
Techrights-secSam doesn't even get the facts right in his article.  Mar 24 12:26
Techrights-secIt's fine to have an opinion but an opinion is not what he is spreading, heMar 24 12:26
Techrights-secis disseminating bald faced lies.Mar 24 12:26
schestowitzLies pay more than truth because the latter isn't a productMar 24 12:27
Techrights-secYes and the lies are inexpensive to generate in volume.Mar 24 12:28

schestowitzI want to not do a single video or article about it anymore as shifting the subject to something GNU/FSF and NOT this would help more in abandoning the mobMar 24 12:29
Techrights-secYes, the main theme is softare freedom and the fight against sw patents and Mar 24 12:29
Techrights-secthere are so many distractions.Mar 24 12:29
schestowitzthe news is very slow today as everything got caught up with and/or occupied with this single topic. Our RMS-back piece is now at 90k views.Mar 24 12:30
Techrights-secthere's less news every month, especially in regards to FOSSMar 24 12:31
Techrights-secthat decline has been going for yearsMar 24 12:31
Techrights-secIt is facilitated by the loss of Github and other similar acts of destruction.Mar 24 12:31
schestowitzThe same is true for tech IN GENERAL and maybe for general news.... in the grand scheme of things. But the %-wise loss may vary depending on topic. The "clown" coverage keeps growing... and "smart" and "hey hi" LOLMar 24 12:32
Techrights-secThe upside is that the are more blogs than last year but they are stillMar 24 12:37
Techrights-secfew in absolute numbers and get no coverage outside of TRMar 24 12:37
