The advantages of #CellBroadcasts in short:
✅ reduced bottlenecks due to high efficiency sending
✅ established standard since 1990
✅ relatively cheap
✅ everyone is warned, even short-term tourists
✅ independent from mobile internet
✅ works even if telephony/SMS/internet is overloaded
✅ no apps required
➡️ Warning apps are a useful *extension*, but not the *basis*. [2/2]

Did someone say "interactive badge generation tool"?
Sources for ./badges web v1.0.0 are now available at https://codeberg.org/lhinderberger/dot-slash-badges-web
Live deployment coming soon, if everything works out, thanks to the nice folks at @codeberg

Yesterday, I tried to build a WebAssembly version of dot-slash-badges. While compilation succeeded, the resulting binary had a size of almost 5 MB. That's too much for an application that, for the average user, likely yields far less than 100KB overall output (about 10KB per badge). Unfortunately, it didn't compile with TinyGo. So, it seems, a purely client-side GUI for dot-slash-badges won't be feasible. 🙁
In June, we launched REUSE Booster to share legal advice with #FreeSoftware projects on copyright.
We interviewed Torsten Grote @firstname.lastname@example.org, who stressed the need to Free our #Androids early on.
In The Netherlands, digital autonomy is undermined; meanwhile, demands for Free Software are rising

Version 0.3.0 marks a significant release for KISStokens, as it brings a major
API redesign, including extensive refactorings and the introduction of a
low-level API in addition to the previous high-level API.

Something to think about
"Licenses alone do not govern behavior in Open Source"
@lhinderberger 👍 I have added several of the pre-built badges and one badge I have created with the generator myself to https://codeberg.org/marc.nause/console-with-fallback
Yesterday, I tried out reading eBooks using the ePub format on my phone. I was very happy with the reading experience, especially in the dark (OLED). To my disappointment, most eBooks I'm interested in have DRM enabled. So this leaves me with a choice between three evils:
- Buy as dead tree - bad for the environment, slow, more clutter
- Buy with Adobe DRM - inconvenient, annoying, not available in my reading app
- Buy using Kindle - Convenient but walled garden
Do you like repository badges but don't like including them from someone else's server? Two days ago, I released ./badges - a generator for badges that you can download as a single, dependency-free, batteries-included binary (or build from source of course 😉). I have also published a number of generic badges under CC0. Check it out on @codeberg - https://codeberg.org/lhinderberger/dot-slash-badges #foss
