We really need to fix this copyright nonsense! European election night live stream by the European Parliament is not visible in Germany due to right issue!

The Gnome Team collected some bugs and features for new contributors to work on. One of the features is described as "allowing you to view and play music stored in ownCloud instances". I would love to have this feature. Great to see how Gnome continues to integrate ownCloud!
If you are interested in coding for GNOME, but haven't figured out what to work on, this post is for you. In my last post, I described an experiment that I'm running for the GNOME 3.14 development ...

What I like about Gnome Music is that it uses the gnome tracker. At this point it's not very smart, but that means it will have to improve the gnome tracker, which is a good thing ;-)

Das ist doch mal ein guter Start in den Tag! Der Europäische Gerichtshof erklärt die Richtlinie über die Vorratsdatenspeicherung für ungültig.

Yesterday I tried TextSecure. The nice thing about it: It replaces your SMS app if you want, so you have one app to do all your text messaging. If the recipient also uses TextSecure the message will be end-to-end encrypted automatically. If you don't have a data connection the message will be send via SMS/MMS, again encrypted if the recipient supports it. Of course it also supports group chats and you can send pictures, video and audio messages. And it is all Free Software!

Only drawback for mass adoption: No iPhone and Desktop client at the moment... But they are already working on it and it should be available soon.

…and apparenty requires Google Play if you want to use the new data channel in addition to SMS. #fail?

“If you lay more emphasis on the monetary side, the pure Microsoft alternative would have won, or if you lay the emphasis on the strategic side, the open source alternative was better.”

Again a great article about Munich's switch to GNU/Linux, aka LiMux. You can't repeat this success story often enough.

Schade das sich Threema selber die Chance verbaut zu der WhatsApp Alternative zu werden. Dazu hätte man alle Kräfte hinter sich bündeln müssen.  Die Gelegenheit war da, aber das Zeitfenster schließt sich nach meiner Einschätzung bereits wieder.
