The Strange Pathways Knowledge Flows This looks like a great movie. Thanks, Roger Friedman for pointing it out. I had not noticed until a few friends were snickering about some technical details. https://joindiaspora.com/posts/4917057
Please, Roger, forgive what looks like unkind words. That big publishers and big companies hide free software from people is something of a sore spot. Apple is a big BSD user that got their browser from the KDE project. Microsoft borrows free software all the time and their most successful current investment, Facebook, is wholly driven by gnu/linux. Even Google hides their use of GNU/linux from users Chromebook, etc. There are even GNU/Linux distributions that don’t mention GNU. Such thoughtlessness is often malicious and is almost always offensive.
I don’t think an entertainment writer should be held up to those standards but would like to help, if you have the time.
Edward Snowden used Tails, a GNU/Linux distribution designed to protect people’s privacy, especially journalists and whistle blowers.
I imagine he used Lenovo because it’s the best choice of what he might have been offered as a contractor. IBM Thinkpads have an excellent reputation in the free software community for sturdy build, good size/power balance, excellent documentation and easy repair.
