""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. [...]

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

@yunohost I can't reach yunohost.org since yesterday. I tried several ISPs in my region. :(

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).

I just call it Microsoft GitHub these days. Does half the job of communicating the risks of it being a hard dependency for FOSS projects in particular.

Just discovered webhint.io (webhint.io/), which is a linter - or "hinter" - for accessibility, security and speed.
Has anyone tried it yet?
I think I will give it a shot in my next project I will work on!

Das Bundesinnenministerium möchte den Betrieb von #Tor-Servern kriminalisieren und damit unter anderem gegen Whistleblowing-Plattformen wie Wikileaks ermitteln können. Außerdem droht Anonymisierungsdiensten das Aus, mit denen Exilmedien Informationen aus Krisen- und Kriegsgebieten erhalten können. Dies ist das Ergebnis einer interdisziplinären Analyse des „Darknet-Paragrafen“ durch Juristen, IT-Experten und Menschenrechtsaktivisten.

For those who haven't heard of en_DK before, it's the "European English" (for want of a better description) locale.

It uses Commonwealth English (en_GB) for strings and ISO-14651-1 for collates.
Dates are in YYYY-MM-DD, time is in 24h HH:MM format, Monday is the first day of the week, comma is the decimal separator, currency is euro and standard paper size is A4.

GOSH I love reading full articles from @write_as in the new single-column view.

The attached screenshot is after clicking through a "read article" link, one of the features of my new Mastodon fork, Hometown. I hope to have documentation and release notes ready to go by the end of the week!

It is only a matter of time before the Fediverse starts to self-organise into 'blocs'.

The ad-hoc blocks and defederations of the past will inevitably be superseded by more formal alliances.

Whole areas of the Fediverse will be effectively cut off from each other.

This is perfectly normal and will be a sign that defederated social media is working.

But the period leading up to a more defined shape to the Fediverse will be turbulent and dis-orientating.

Maybe the blocs already exist?
Their names?

@tbernard Hi Tobias! Could you tell me which software project the default mail client of the Librem 5 will be based on? 😊

Cracks me up when developers recognize "not everyone has computer software and hardware like me," but can't imagine that people have different life experiences, beliefs, desires, or fears.

In case it isn't clear, Google has now reached, in many sectors, the "extinguish" phase of "embrace, extend, extinguish".

"Google is locking down API access to Gmail data (and later, Drive data) soon, and some of your favorite third-party apps might find themselves locked out of your Google account data. "

@switchingsocial@mastodon.at Do you know how to follow a writefreely blog from Mastodon? 😊

And could you tell where to ask such ignorant questions regarding the Fediverse in the future? 😅
