Beim #Datenschutz, muß aber auch der Staat kritisiert werden.
Der niedersächsische Ministerpräsident #Weil ( #SPD ) mit seinem Koalitionspartner #Althusmann ( #CDU )
Linux Ausstieg in Niedersachsen
und der Münchener Oberbürgermeister #Reiter ( #SPD )

sind dabei mit ihrer #GroKo aus langjährigen und sehr anerkannten #Linux / #LiMux Projekten auszusteigen und sich stattdessen in die Hände des Monopolisten #Microsoft zu begeben.
Damit werden dem #Lobbyismus sensible Bürgerdaten geopfert!

Hi Leute,
ich wollt einfach mal sagen das ich froh bin das hier eine Community entstanden ist die sich der Freiheit verschrieben fühlt und sich bewusst ist was für Gesellschaftliche folgen die Verwendung von proprietärer Software in der Zukunft haben wird und nicht dem reinen Kapital/Profit dient.
Freut mich einfach das es noch so viele Freidenker gibt und man mit seinen Gedanken nicht allein ist :-)

Der Oberbürgermeister Münchens, #Reiter ( SPD ), steigt mit seiner #SPD / #CSU Koalition aus dem international anerkannten #LiMux Projekt der Rot-Grünen Koalition seines Vorgängers #Uhde ( SPD ) aus.
Wo ist da der #Landesrechnungshof?
Wieso begibt man sich in die Abhängigkeit des Monopolisten #Microsoft?
Wieso wird der #Datenschutz leichtfertig auf’s Spiel gesetzt?
Wieso erkennt man nicht den Wert der #OpenSource-Software für die Gesellschaft?
Wieso wird dieser digitale #Amoklauf nicht gestoppt?

Good read by #FSFE supporter @vanitasvitae who explains today why he loves #FreeSoftware: "It gives you back the control over your machine. It’s something that you can trust, as there are no secrets kept from you."

The third year of Liberapay

This week marks the 3rd anniversary of Liberapay’s launch. It’s been a very difficult year, but there are some silver linings.

A difficult year

In July our payment “partner” decided to kick us and our users out of their platform. If you haven’t done so already you may want read our two previous blog posts about this ordeal: “Liberapay is in trouble” and “Liberapay status update”.

We still haven’t fully recovered from this crisis, but since our last blog post we have been able to bring back the SEPA Direct Debit payment method.

We want to thank all the people who supported us through this difficult year, including everyone who kept donating through Liberapay regardless of the transient difficulties in doing so.

A good year?

Paradoxically 2018 was also our best year yet if we consider the volume of donations processed, thanks to the fast growth of December 2017 and early 2018. In total we transferred approximately €109k to 700 creators in 2018, that’s 4 times more money than in 2017 and twice the number of recipients.

It feels like we’ve spent most of 2018 trying to keep Liberapay in working order instead of improving it, but in fact the platform has gotten better in the past year.

33 currencies!

Having to rebuild large chunks of Liberapay to work with different payment processors has been a pain and has hindered progress in other areas, but it has also enabled us to greatly improve our support of currencies.

When Liberapay launched in 2016 its only currency was the Euro, then in 2017 we added the US dollar, and in 2018 we added support for 31 additional currencies: the Australian Dollar (AUD), Bulgarian Lev (BGN), Brazilian Real (BRL), Canadian Dollar (CAD), Swiss Franc (CHF), Chinese Yuan (CNY), Czech Koruna (CZK), Danish Krone (DKK), British Pound (GBP), Hong Kong Dollar (HKD), Croatian Kuna (HRK), Hungarian Forint (HUF), Indonesian Rupiah (IDR), Israeli New Shekel (ILS), Indian Rupee (INR), Icelandic Króna (ISK), Japanese Yen (JPY), South Korean Won (KRW), Mexican Peso (MXN), Malaysian Ringgit (MYR), Norwegian Krone (NOK), New Zealand Dollar (NZD), Philippine Piso (PHP), Polish Zloty (PLN), Romanian Leu (RON), Russian Ruble (RUB), Swedish Krona (SEK), Singapore Dollar (SGD), Thai Baht (THB), Turkish Lira (TRY), South African Rand (ZAR).

You should update your currency preferences if you haven’t done it yet. Below is a copy of the two paragraphs located at the bottom of that page:
Accepting foreign currencies can increase your income by convincing people in other countries to donate to you, but international payments usually result in a higher percentage of fees, and fluctuations in exchange rates can lessen the stability of your income.

Stripe automatically converts funds into your main currency, but by default PayPal holds payments in foreign currencies until you tell it what to do. If you have a Business PayPal account you can choose to automatically convert all incoming payments in foreign currencies to your main currency. This option is currently located in the “Preferences for receiving payments” page.

Better profile settings

Over time the profile settings had become a confusing mess, we fixed that in April by splitting them into multiple tabs. We also improved the responsiveness of a few elements at the same time.

Screenshot of profile settings.

Security alerts

In March we implemented a new feature to help you keep your account secure: when you set a new password or log in with your current one we automatically check it against the world’s biggest public list of leaked passwords, and warn you if we find a match.

Sadly we’re still missing support for two-factor authentication (#926).

More public data

Liberapay’s Explore section has been expanded to provide more visibility into who is using the platform.

We don’t have a strict roadmap, but there are a lot of things we want to improve and a lot of new features we want to implement. Lately we’ve been working on these two important changes:
  • The possibility to send money to multiple creators at once instead of having to make multiple payments, when this kind of one-to-many payment is supported by the underlying payment processor.
  • The possibility to have your donations be renewed automatically. This long-awaited feature should make Liberapay much more convenient for donors and help stabilize the income of creators.

One of the reasons why progress has been somewhat slow in 2018 is that Liberapay is still shorthanded and underfunded, so please donate or contribute if you can. Having a second Python developer working on Liberapay’s core could be particularly beneficial, however programming skills aren’t required to contribute to Liberapay. For example improving the documentation or completing the translations can be equally useful.

Thank you for reading, we wish you peace and long life. 🖖

The Map of Agroecology, a free software plataform, enables the mapping of initiatives in Agroecology.

In constant evolution this is open and we are always looking for partners to improve the system, not only providing information about the sites that already perform experiments in
Agroecology but with suggestions and tips on how to improve the platform itself.

Get to know the Platform in operation at and add the Place and Experience that you or your group is doing so we can foster new collaboration networks.

Through the source code it is possible to customize the platform and implement it in any initiative that wishes to map experiences of agroecology.
