#Nitter.net is to Titter as Invidio.us is to ThemTube. It provides a freely licensed (#AGPL) web app for their backend. You can login to your T account without using their nonfree Javascript, and manage it in ways that are a pain with the JS-free, legacy version of the T web UI.

Watched this video about #Mastodon 3.0 by @geotechland and apparently mastodon now supports moving accounts and taking your followers with you?! That's really a game changer imo.
Also, doing the soundcloud thing for music uploads is pretty cool as well!

Got an old Acer laptop out of the cupboard, installed in 10 mins, all works out of the box. Tried to put Windows10 on it, several hours later gave up, no driver exists for display or wifi. Ridiculous.

anarcho-primitivism sounds nice until you realize it's basically saying that anybody who couldn't have survived before modern medicine and specialization(the vast majority of people) deserves to die.

It's just more extreme anarcho-capitalism.

Nos recordamos que el primer número de DNI fue el de Franco:

"El número uno se lo adjudicó para sí mismo Francisco Franco Bahamonde. El segundo llevaba el nombre de su mujer, Carmen Polo y Martínez Valdés. Para su hija Carmen Franco y Polo fue a parar el número tres. Del cuarto al noveno han quedado vacantes. Del 10 en adelante y hasta el número 99 se bloquearon para la Familia Real Española. El número 10 se le asignó al rey Juan Carlos I... El número 13 quedó sin usar debido a la superstición"

David Sloan Wilson : “Selfishness beats altruism within groups. Altruistic groups beat selfish groups. The rest is commentary.”

With thanks to @SeamusOhAilin@twitter.com for the quote.

That kids have got to take time out of their childhoods to explain climate science to us should be a matter of profound shame

Would you replace your existing internet provider with a community-based ISP, assuming that you'd (at the very least) keep the same speed? If so/not, why?

Paul Krafel -
"Hope because we are discovering that we have the power to change the environment. If previous generations had been asked whether they had the power to change the environment, they would have said “no” (if they could even understand what the question meant). But we now know we have the power. True, we discovered this by destroying the environment. But now we know we have the power."

P2P Accounting for Planetary Survival.

"today’s widespread obsession with smart contracts, platform capitalism and economies of scale... only serve to reinforce last century’s dominant and extractive modes of production. Instead, dive into this report and discover the possibilities of Ostrom contracts, platform cooperativism and economies of scope... the seeds of a generative commons-based economy that is fit for the 21st century’s social and ecological challenges."

Some Chromebooks mistakenly declared themselves end-of-life last week

When your Chromebook or Chromebox approaches its built-in expiration date, it will warn you that it's time to go buy a new device entirely. Not long after that, it will refuse to apply any further security or feature updates. In addition to leaving users vulnerable to unpatched security exploits, this means that constantly evolving services such as Gmail will eventually stop working entirely.
