I'm looking into toying with some RISC-V IoT devices. Do you have any recommendations for cheap dev boards to play around with?

I never really thought about it before but we give our governments money to pay for expensive and restrictive proprietary software, money that could be much better spent elsewhere. The people paying for this software should be able to use it themselves; public money should go towards public code.

No, this is a ploy to pry good talent away from the federation. The best thing we can do is ignore any further news about it and downplay it to any who ask.

And just like that, Mastodon is taken seriously and gets a decent writeup that that doesn't treat it like a side show, or say that it's "crumbling." theverge.com/2019/12/12/210125
