In no particular order, web sites like OpenStreetMap, Wikipedia, Archive.Org, Sci-Hub, tools like I2P, Tor, IRC, GPG, OMEMO, OTR, and open and federated protocols like Jabber, Email, Diaspora and ActivityPub are the most important projects on the internet and should be protected and exalted.

The collaborative, non-owned, knowledge base these two initiatives are building is the foundation for the open society of the future. We need more of that
not sure there is a suitable forum for this (not sure #mastodon threads are optimal for that) but crowdsourcing ideas about how these platforms might integrate more closely, what are short and long term benefits, what are possible obstacles etc would be quite handy
So I want to donate some projects... But most of them are US-based and sometimes I can only find IBAN numbers
as neutral payment option on their websites (I quitted PayPal year ago). And I still haven't found any intelligible instruction how to use IBAN compared to using "normal" account number :/ I would be glad if someone would tell me what to do (I am from EU country, mostly transferred to account in the same country or via particular shops' payment systems).
@email@example.com OpenStreetMap needs to develop a navigation app or it's never going to be more than a sideshow.
