I wish my government and politicians would stop giving status updates and long messages to the people of Denmark on Facebook and Twitter, and instead had their own instance on the internet like Mastodon or similar.

Government and politicians in Denmark! Get together now and use the Internet which is the place for communication to the population, and not in Big-Tech's walled gardens.

It seems to me completely unreal that we humans can actually make money, by streaming on twitter, and even with content that is about nothing.

I'm definitely in the wrong business.

Today, we need no education at all, but obviously just social media.

Fuck We are doomed!

No matter where there is war, it's so awful. I wish for peace all over the world!

Mastodon admins!

You can tweak your instance theme so that it highlights media which do not have a text description:

A lot of people use Mastodon through audio from screen readers, so it is important to encourage your users to add text descriptions to images.

(The theme is made by @balrogboogie and @FiXato , and thank you to @Mayana for letting me know about the theme!)

When I think back on web1, it was about ethics, morality and people. Today we have web2 it's mostly about assholes and political blah, blah, blah ... Freedom, rules and power are difficult to reconcile.

The Internet (WWW) has been around for about 30+ years and I'm still amazed that many people still do not know what a Browser or URL is.
However, they have no problems getting in touch with Meta (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, Youtube etc. and still do not see the consequences and are fine with being tapped for privacy on these platforms.

Join us for our Small Is Beautiful live stream this Thursday at 5PM Irish time.

Topic: web3 is bullshit (long live web0) and wtf is NodeKit?

Well.... Haven't they not just done some spam software part of their original open source code which is proprietary? Then it can probably not be called "Fully open-source" anymore. 🤔

"You received this email because you subscribed to emails from 1Password about resources and security advice."

Yes sure i did!
But back in 2008 i signed up as an private person, and now 13 years later, i only get business related mails. I think the time has come to say goodbye to delightful 1password which have served me well all those years, but it seems to me that they is about to drop/don't care about their private users anymore.

"Apple filed a lawsuit in California against Israeli spyware company NSO Group for allegedly facilitating surveillance of Apple users"

"Privacy is Apple’s brand"

I do not agree with that. Did they not just try to introduce 'side scanning', of pictures and messages? They did.
Fuck they forget quickly!

Small Technology Foundation is live streaming (Small is Beautiful) with @laura and @aral in about one hour, twenty minutes at 5PM Kilkenny (Irish Time, UTC +0)

I'am so ready

I do not understand cryptocurrency or nft.
So lucky me, there are two less things I need to worry about.

There are humans and then there are fuckers!
Big companies, big-tech and politicians are fuckers who fuck us all over, again and again.
Well, I'd better keep my mouth shut for the rest of the day. I think I'm having a bad day, today.

i downloaded all 10.000 of those ugly lazy lions nfts and turned them into a mosaic of a person right-clicking

I'm not sure I see it as a privacy feature or a privacy concern, but okay, maybe it's just me who does not really trust Apple anymore.

I marvel every day at how much we humans love labels.
We label our food with "Organic" which is the natural choice, although we know that we should label the food grown using pesticides with "may contain traces of pesticides", just as we label tobacco with "harmful to health"

Bad social media gives you an audience: stuff like reach, personality/celebrity, spectacle, anxiety, alienation, competition.

Good social media gives you community: it’s more like voice, agency, discussion, comradery.

I want a community, not an audience.

In connection with privacyweek, I just saw @laura 'People might actually use this' (re-live) talk about, among other things, accessibility and privacy.
Very good talk and very informative, has at least opened my eyes a lot more for accessibility and assistive software.
All things that I should have known more about by now.

Looking forward to @aral 'Big Tech is a virus, Small Tech is the vaccine' talk tonight at. 19.00 Austrian time.
