fonts! Show more
Somebody mentioned here recently that Google has a scary grip over the technologies underlying how we build/use the internet and mentioned Google Fonts (among other things). This got me a little spooked but also made me more conscious of how I use fonts and the fonts I should be using/supporting.
Can anybody link me to good resources for how I should be setting up fonts for web, and just nice, pleasing (#FOSS?) fonts I can use for personal computing?
Can I emphasize one more time how cool Blokada is?
You don't know it but your phone is *full* of trackers. It's not better than the web. I thought that we don't have any tools to deal with it - after all, it's not a browser. But turns out there are!
Blokada works as a VPN but locally. It has a blacklist (which you can change) and it just blocks all connections to trackers or ads. It works wonderfully.
Of course Google wouldn't let it in the Play Store.
Instance building. My priority now: Code of Conduct.
I've always liked this idea
I'm involved in travellingtoolbox.org.uk
I've also got a #solar power generator trailer (panels and batteries)
My partner runs thebookshelf.org.uk
Password manager autofill in Android Oreo is so convenient
solar: we have this bonanza of free energy from the sun, and it's enough to provide a good quality of life for everyone if we manage and distribute it well enough. but it's not an infinite supply to fuel exponential growth for its own sake.
punk: the system we have now is not nearly as equitable or fair as it should be. some people get rich, more get oppressed and dumped on. so we fight to end this and do better
solarpunk is what happens when we take all of this technology we have, and decide that maybe instead of chasing infinite exponential growth that's impossible we'll try to build a world with it that can coexist with nature and provide for everyone so they can do more of what they really want.
i'm 0/1 on expressing things well so take it with a grain of salt. i maybe missed some things and overemphasized others

With recent announcements that #BT is cutting thousands of jobs, and Virgin Media is dumping hundreds of workers, isn't it time to bring something as fundamental to our future as internet access out of the hands of these sociopathic corporations and back into our own hands?
Rural community projects like B4RN (https://b4rn.org.uk/) are great - but the majority of us live in urban areas where we can't dig fibre under a farmer's field.
I'm more and more interested in #communitywireless.
