""Instead of trying to earn enough money to insulate ourselves from the world we're creating, why don't we spend that time and energy making the world a place that we don't feel the need to escape from."

Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results. Nations have frequently won their independence in battle. But despite temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace. [...] It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding: it seeks to annihilate rather than convert. [...]

-- Dr. M. L. King

The next version of #bandcampDirect, my free bandcamp client for Android (available on :fdroid: @fdroidorg), will be rebranded to campfire. Also, in-app playback controls will be more stable.

Does anyone want to create a new icon for this app?

"The Cobra Effect"

The British government was concerned about the number of venomous cobra snakes in Delhi.

The government therefore offered a bounty for every dead cobra. Initially this was a successful strategy as large numbers of snakes were killed for the reward.

Eventually, however, enterprising people began to breed cobras for the income.

Die Landesdatenschutzbeauftragte Brandenburg hat ihre Prüfung der #AutoVorratsdatenspeicherung mit #Kesy abgeschlossen und kommt wenig überraschend zum deutlichen Schluss, dass die Massenspeicherung von Unverdächtigen rechtswidrig ist. Nun wird es Zeit, den Wilden Westen bei der Kennzeichenerfassung endlich zu beenden!

Back in September, before @moodlenet even tested federation, they released a User Agreement and a Covenant for Instance Administrators, which contains very sensible rules around respecting users and protecting minorities / commonly persecuted groups.

This federated #ActivityPub project for sharing educational resources sets a great example. If you are developing a decentralised project on which you expect people to interact, please follow their lead! 💚

If you've got a .org website, the price for your domain will probably be going up considerably in the not-too-distant future:

My colleague @jensimmons created a video about the #accessibility #inspector in the #Firefox #Developer #Tools #FirefoxDevTools. She narrates it so well that, even though it is primarily geared towards sighted web developers using a mouse, as a blind person I could follow it without problems. #WebDev youtube.com/watch?v=7mqqgIxX_N

I've been trying to think of ways that privacy-centric technology can be made more accessible to non-techies. It seems to me that there's a business opportunity for someone to come to your house and install:

- a Pi-Hole with ad blocking and secure DNS
- a Nextcloud server
- a Mastodon instance
- etc.

Think of it like the technician who comes to your house to install cable, except instead of "the cable guy" it's "the privacy guy" (or gal).
