I'm all for more news, total, aren't we swamped with spam already as it is? So libre tech news from the twitter feed would help improve the ratio of spam to good stuff in our inbox.

Tagging is for sissies and I assume this list is full of superduper smart techies nerds that don't need no stinking badges to filter classify sort autodeletearchivefile incoming email, oh god how much I miss now emacs mhmail, "la última Coca-Cola del desierto, or isn't it?😈

BTW I'm unemployed starting 2 days gym now svdcresfy to join the resistance, drop me a live if you have something anywhere that you might think would interest me in the world of ICT4-dev-social/migrant/youth/anybody's Justice etc

Regards | Saludos,
