      The Debian thong made me laugh. Who is buying this? For themselves, their partners? I’m imagining Christmas morning when I’m trying to explain the value of this gift you’ve just opened.

    Please don’t call regular people “normies”, it creates a needless boundary between those who use FOSS and those who haven’t yet.

      Yes, that’s why I put it in quotes, because I don’t like using it either but at the moment I couldn’t come up with a way to name normal people that don’t know about the world of open source 😅. So thank you. Will see if I can change the title.

      Edit: done!

    I really like simple black&white T-shirts with just a logo.

    Some will recognize it and come say hello. Most will think it’s just a brand. Some will ask what it is and I will gladly explain.

    This Creative Commons shirt is one of my favourites.

    Tor has (may not be available anymore) a shirt to support abortion access and it says “privacy is a human right” and it’s one of my favorite shirts

    I rather like the FSFe for general Free software stuff, but you may find nicer-looking stuff if you visit merch store for specific projects, like GNOME, KDE, etc.

      ha. That site is fun. I’m also clueless about some of it. Do you know what the “Come and find it” shirt references? I have a couple of guesses, but I really don’t know.

        That looks like the Monero logo to me. So I think it is a parody of “molon labe” referencing money instead of weapons.

      The problem with signal (which I love and use) is that sadly they could really f_ck up with a simple decision and sell out. That’s the issue with such centralized companies.

        Sure, I agree. The problem is (and I’m sorry Matrix fans) but decentralised services don’t cut it for messaging at the moment. I’m on multiple Matrix instances which I use for different groups. One more tech savvy than the other, but still. Message can not be decrypted, or toggling one wrong switch and all messages become unreadable without you knowing. I would absolutely not have been able to switch 90% of my contacts to Signal if that were the experience.

        Centralisation does not inherently have to be bad and Signal has been operating with good faith for many years now. I don’t see them selling out anytime soon and I think they are our best shot at a good FOSS instant messaging contender for the broad masses.

        Yeah, that’s a possibility. However, as some Mastodon folks said recently, no platform is forever. Signal’s prospects seem reasonable to me, right now. If they co corporate and enshittify next week, I won’t feel my time and investment with them was a waste, nor my financial support (which hasn’t been much, tbh).
