2020 is here, what's next?
ok, here it goes: the obligatory post that everyone writes in the beginning of a new year.
2019 was a year of progress for Linux.Pizza and growth, it has been fun to curate for the small “platform” and the userbase residing here.
2020 is here, and I'll try to summarize what we hope to achieve during this year:
Build are more robust infrastructure: This is something that we started with last summer with OperationTulip (basically a hosted Nextcloud provider) and we will continue to do so during this year. I (Jonathan) is a part of the OperationTulip team and have contributed with alot of time and hardware into the project, so it is only fair that Linux.Pizza can reside in that environment too!
Get more supporters: One of the blockers of many project is money and that is mostly storage and fees for domain names and such. We have been able to mitigate a big chunk of expenses by hosting our own authorive DNS-environment and getting a room in an already existing email server. As I mentioned in the 2019 recap we have gotten donation that have been covering the cost of operation for month – and we are not able to show enough gratitude for the generosity of the people that has donated to Linux.Pizza – Thank you!!
Spread the word about the Librehosters: Linux.Pizza is a part of the Librehosters – a loose community of people and organizations that hosts and provide ethical and libre services for public use. We would really like to see it grow and more projects that joins the community
Participate in real-life events: Altough I can't attend events like FOSDEM this year, we do hope that we can join the FOSS NORTH event this spring together with the team from OperationTulip. And who knows, we may have stickers for you then? ;)
Linux.Pizza staff: Currently, when I am basically the sole admin of Linux.Pizza. Sure, my wife has full access to the services and will act if something would happend to me, but that's about it. So if you want to help out, or know someone that wants to help out – just contact me on Mastodon or Matrix (@j:matrix.linux.pizza).
Well, there is goes. Have a great day everybody!
