Do you have any suggestion of a photo manager program which identifies picture using tags / description.

My goal is to create a personal references pictures library for drawing. In order to find quickly references I've selected myself.

I'm testing https://www.tagspaces.org/ but I'm not 100% happy with it (mostly ergonomy).

It could be great that software is available on desktop (linux) and smartphone (android) using a file synchronization.

Thank you

Hey townies! The new book Radicalized by Cory Doctorow is out.

You can buy ebooks direct from him (so Amazon not taking a huge slice) and the files are DRM free.

As someone that travels from flyover country to coastal locations fairly frequently - i can say that yes, from my perspective, indeed, silicon valley is out of touch with reality under most circumstances.

Software is trending in the wrong direction. Decreased transparency, centralisation, and proprietary monopolies.

In this article I describe the 5 ingredients to ethical software:

- open data
- open source
- distributed deployment
- decentralised hosting
- end to end encryption
