FYI If you're using Google Pay, you *will* lose access to your funds if Google suspends your account (along with email, YouTube, and anything else in the ecosystem)
I don't use it personally, but I have an account and they just sent me an email about a ToS change
BTW I will block anyone who starts with "stop using Google lol" or similar cause it's asinine. It's not just search
My state's GOVERNMENT PORTAL uses Google's captcha and other services
Until it gets broken up, Google is inescapable
"Techies think distributed architecture leads to distributed power. But complexity makes users dependent on middle men. Social networks beat blogs because web hosting is too hard for most people. The path to decentralization is not distributed consensus algorithms it’s simplicity"
Agaric's Show and Tell is this Thursday at 3PM Eastern.
This week, we will discuss Design Justice!
Here are some questions to get us started:
What are some examples of design justice?
How do you practice design justice?
Design justice is important to our work, so we want to make sure it is on everyone's radar!

We imagine this is particularly interesting for the folks looking at Cloudron, YunoHost and other similar systems for self-hosting management.
Delighted to finally get this out public and looking forward to comments/questions/critique/testing.

i may end up trying to write a longer-form post about this, but despite the urge to try to solve problems by writing code, there are *so* many ways for a tech-literate person to support existing activism that aren't writing a new app. just by knowing that linktree or buffer exists and helping set up accounts/content, you could make a huge impact for a group that already has expertise and connections in their area of interest.
It's illegal to enter buildings in the zone as most of them are completely unstable, and due to a new zone administration there's typically no bribing your way out of a situation. Sometimes in the most unsuspecting places you may find street art left behind by a Stalker who risked arrest for something many will never see. Somewhat of a real life Easter egg, or a subtle nod to defiance: "You're not suppose to be here."
