For those of you that follow this blog for many years, you might remember an old post about buying an ebook reader. That was back in 2012, and a lot of things have changed since then. However, my appreciation for that little device is not among the things that did change, and I am still a proud owner of an ebook reader. Even though my originally device was stolen, I did buy a second one, and currently is one of my most beloved pieces of technology (much more beloved than my smartphone).


Even though I am usually not fond of information transmitted over the audio, for some reason I was fascinated by the idea of podcasts ever since I first heard of it. But somehow, I never find the time to listen to the podcasts that I seem to care about, so the unread episodes just keep on pilling and pilling. This week, I decided to dedicate it to podcasts and listen to everything that was on my list.


Even before I fully switched to a Linux machine, some 10 years ago, I was still a passionate user of open source software. Although usually buggy and less feature rich back then, it somehow appealed to me to be able to use the work of others for free (and legally!). Fast-forward 10 years to the future and now I am relying on open source software for the vast majority of my work and entertainment.
