Linda Thurston - Rest in Peace. Radical activist and technologist. You are deeply missed.

If you buy a phone is it yours? Or can Apple use it for other purposes? I like reading about the hacking going in, but it seems like the real story with AirTags is: who can use your phone?

I just published an interview with Alfredo Lopez, founder and long-time board member of May First, a co-op serving the technology needs of leftist movements. He talks about May First's vision, goals, governance, and more.

Basecamp is really stepping in it. Their generous severance package for people who disagree with their politics feels like a real political purge.

Does anyone have experience using with Seems like a well supported cross poster between mastadon and twitter. I'm looking for a way to ween mayfirst from our twitter account but I don't want to run afoul of any rules against bots.

This twitter thread seems to confirm that the header is needed in case your site pulls in any iframes that have FLoC enabled.

Hmmm. Maybe if your web site has a "like on Facebook" widget which might contain the FLoC business, sending the header would prevent it?

Let's hear it for the regular user! Way too much reverence around software, for the FLOSS geek way of life. We ordinary ppl need great hosting services - under multistakeholder coop governance? Providing livelihood for the skilled sysadmin and account admin workers in the coop, who keep the lights on. "Commons of running code" yay 🔥

After weathering a rough Nextcloud upgrade, I continue to doubt the various projects aimed at allowing "regular" users to install and manage their own web apps. When it works, it's great. When something goes wrong, well... Good luck!
