I have no TV for a long time and I also stopped consuming news (apart from tech). News are just bullshit. Now I realize how depressing and useless all this information is most people stuff into their brains daily. Confront me with news on the radio now and I almost freak out because I feel it's so disgusting. 🤨
We are flesh and blood – makes us feel more human
On Facebook and Twitter we get a anti-human illusion of human experience.
The Internet is done alone
Isolationism as a benefit – self importance.
while #GNU and the #FSF certainly has given us many useful things the overall strategy has kind of failed. just look at https://savannah.gnu.org for example. it all just doesn't gain enough traction to really make a difference. nobody uses the GNU OS. is there even any piece of recent GNU software that is filling more than just a niche?
For more than a decade, Facebook shared your friends' data and other sensitive info with phone makers, even after they claimed not to (they're still doing it) https://boingboing.net/2018/06/05/surveillance-sophistry.html #surveillancecapitalism #privacyisateamsport #cambridgeanalytica ##deletefacebook #surveillance #facebook #privacy #zuboff #Post

Got partway through making an RSS-to-RSS transformer today: given an RSS feed of the most recent few pages of a series, it should be able to guess the rest of the pages of the series and generate an RFC5005 full-history RSS feed for it. I think it'll turn out to be fully automatic, when it works at all, which looks like pretty often… 😅 Hopefully that'll be useful in my grand plan to convince everyone to adopt this decade-old standard that nobody's ever heard of… 😒
@roipoussiere I'm really wondering how I can help on that one. It feels like the issues have been going for quite some time without real technical proposition too. Is it only a political problem between long-separated communities or just a lack on ActivityPub's side? 🤔
Hey Fediverse 👋
If you want a federation as a replacement for GitHub, you can star/comment issues:

- 🍴 cross-server merge requests: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues/4013;
- 💬 share events (comments, likes, ...) via activityPub: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues/44486;
- 🍴 gogs feration via ActivityPub: https://github.com/gogs/gogs/issues/4437
- 🍴 gitea federated merge-requests: https://github.com/go-gitea/gitea/issues/184

Google font: they serve the font file to your visitors. It's a file transfert. So, they collect a log entry on their server with their IP/browser/where-they-came-from/etc... and because many dev use Google-font, they have a map of most of your visitors move accross the internet.

@Hamishcampbell @strypey @david_ross I’ve never understood the “absolute safety” fallacy, myself. There is unsafe infosec and safer. It’s figleafs all the way down, an arms race of figleafs, even in crypto. And even the surveillance state doesn’t have total immediate clairvoyance. So if hiding ip foils some metadata skimmers, but not all, at least you’ve foiled probably most. It buys time and options and muddies waters. That’s all one can do anyway.
