The announcement of Figma's acquisition by Adobe caught us by surprise celebrating our strategic offsite.

Oh dear, more work😏

A very good conversation on Half Past Capitalism about Mondragon's foreign subsidiaries (and other topics). #WorkerCoops :TwinPines:

The shape builder 2.0 in #inkscape
is almost, nearly, quite a bit... complete. Would anyone be interested in trying it out with a developer build?

@timon @penpot

Yeah. I'm not familiar with FIgma much, but have tried #Penpot and joined their forum. Really like it thus far. Quite usable, and they are only ramping up still.

Btw, another cool comment to the HN chat on Penpot:

"It's kind of amazing to me that we've reached the point where using open source is not a matter of idealism, but rather risk management to guard against the threat of product regressions due to consumer-hostile takeovers."

Love #Figma? Now that it has been acquired by #Adobe their future might just go the same direction as Macromedia Fireworks, which according to the top HN commenter was:

"a calculated decision to kill an innovative product because it threatened the profits of their cash cows"

Luckily there's something much nicer than Figma. More promising: A true #FOSS alternative for #UX design.

Of course this is @penpot

Give it a spin. Join the community.

The UK is projected to spend an estimated $9 million on Queen Elizabeth's funeral, amid warnings the country is heading toward recession and skyrocketing costs of living.

Over 2 million people in the UK cannot afford to eat every day, surveys show. 🧵

Learning a lot about people who are saying we should be respectful and reverent at the moment because an old lady did what old ladies do and die.

Where were they when that old lady was wearing a diamond and gold hat and sitting on a gold chair while her subjects queue at food banks?

Their respect and reverence is clearly aimed at wealth and power, not human dignity.

@thunderbird One other thing worth mentioning: You said that you might someday want to host your own instance. One of my goals for TILvids is to help lift creators up off the ground by sharing their content around similar content, and then eventually when they get big enough, if they want to, start their own instance and federate with each other. This is the best plan I could come up with to support federation while also working to combat the rampant misinformation/spam content that exists in the PeerTube ecosystem. So know that you have that option down the road as well!

@thunderbird is looking for a good #PeerTube instance for hosting their videos.

I'm not too used to peertube right now, any recommendations from the #foss community? I like that Thunderbird would like to use peertube :)

@thunderbird@mastodon.online:

Are there any PeerTube instances you recommend? We don't have the resources (read: time) to host our own right now.

Okay, since he's not on the fediverse, but really should be:)

I'm going to start reposting tuts on here:

Not sure if that little tree-teepee-thing was actually occupied or whether someone just left their cowboy hat in front of it by accident, but it was quite well-constructed 🤔

I think the Queen would want us all to live the way she did, with free public housing, basic universal income, and full government health care.
