Ooh so #introduction time eh? Welcome to Mastodon, old and new users! I'm Jay Baker, longtime media activist now irreversibly known and regretting not acting in anonymity online the last 20yrs of rabble rousing! I'm an unpaid carer for my partner who has #LongCOVID, as well as a freelance facilitator, illustrator, and copywriter. I love #Linux, coffee, comics, and pro wrestling, and am involved in my local #IWW branch. Links to other places I can be found are on my bio. Say hi!

Also superb piece here for @Freedom_Press but sadly the email contact at the end bears no response for some time, so let me know if anyone is aware of anything going on regards Mutu: https://freedomnews.org.uk/2019/06/15/mutu-rethinking-our-radical-media/

CALL OUT! As many of you know, I'm keen to see a UK version of France's Mutu Network develop over here. I'm wondering if it's worth setting up at least a chat group to start some conversations and ideas around making it happen. Interested? Let me know! https://reseaumutu.info/Presentation-of-the-Mutu-Network-004

I honestly will say when I first head about Collabora's LibreOffice online stuff I did not really see the purpose. Then I tried Google docs.
yeah holy shit please collabora give us an alternative that isn't that or office 365. Because, WOW, google docs is actually miserable as hell.
Yes, this is just from me having tried the word processor the other day and realizing it's just as bad as sheets
Before cameraphones I personally saw CNN do something similar, claiming that a crowd of anti-monarchist protesters in the Netherlands who even threw paint bombs at the royal carriage and waved red and black flags were people who came out to support the royal family...
I am lost for words.
