1/ This is a comparison more people should be making. In 1898, a couple thousand white supremacists successfully overturned an election in North Carolina, destroying a powerful, anti-capitalist coalition of poor white and recently emancipated Black farmers (the Fusionists).

I have a lucky pattern of ignoring popular tech that i get a bad gut feeling about, and somehow being right. Go is cursed. This is depressing. You can’t fix these mistakes this late in the game. RIP Go

telling people your own age that you're proud of them feels like being a dog and discovering that you, too, can give headpats

Hey so, Salesforce just bought Slack. Salesforce has a history of monetizing things they buy in really aggressive manners so I'm expecting some Changes there soon.

If you use Discord, I'll also note that when a thing's main competition has a problem is when companies choose to make Big Moves so don't be shocked if Discord makes major changes or either gets bought themselves very soon.

I've been banging the drum of "Have backups for your communities" for years now, but it's more serious now.

Um um um um ummmmm... is this what it sounds like? Google is blocking browsers it doesn't "approve" of... apparently just letting in Firefox and Chrome? developers.googleblog.com/2020

The web as an open standards platform is rapidly falling apart. :\

Joho godtfolk, og god laurdagskveld! Eg har eit lite oppdrag til dykk nettverksskallar: Eg har omsett ferdig til nynorsk, og bed dykk prøve ut herlegdomen på demo.mobilizon.org/. Eg sjølv har sett nokre glepptak i omsetjinga, og tek gjerne imot fleire rettingar.

Eg synest dette er ei bitteliti markering verdt, fordi eit fint alternativ til Facebook-grupper og -hendingar no er opna for norske brukarar. Eg tek eit glas raudt, i alle fall, så får de hine gjera som de lystar.

"These machines are the first general purpose computers ever where you have to make an exclusive choice: you can have a fast and efficient machine, or you can have a private one... Short of using an external network filtering device like a travel/vpn router that you can totally control, there will be no way to boot any OS on the new Apple Silicon macs that won’t phone home, and you can’t modify the OS to prevent this."

Gig-economy companies aren't part of the productive economy – they're part of the finance economy. They rely on investors, not profits from delighted customers, to stay afloat.

They will never be profitable. Ever.

Her er endelig beretningen om hvordan jeg brøt meg inn i Facebook-hvelvet for å hente ut mine egne gamle innlegg, slik at jeg kunne legge dem ut på nettstedet mitt: bearstrong.net/tech/2020/11/de

Her er forresten resultatet: bearstrong.net/facebook/ Ganske verdiløst, men gøy å ha gjort det, bare på trass.

Subtitles are not currently a feature in Supernatural but is definitely on our radar for something we want to implement down the road. We're constantly updating Supernatural to be the best workout experience possible for as many people as we can support. Your feedback helps inform which direction we steer future updates to the app.

Asking for #accessibility and #subtitles for #deaf yields usually rather depressing answers, but not always. Thanks, #supernatural!

@jwildeboer I am not sure but codeberg.org seems to be such an alternative. It is a non-profit and non-governmental community for free and open-source projects and is based in EU.

If you want to leave GitHub due to their recent bad behavior but still need a presence there, you can absolutely do that.

What FOSS developers provide them is credibility. If you move your cool projects elsewhere and mirror them to Github with a pointer to the real repo, the message is clear: you're only on Github because you have to be.

Boycotting $BIG_COMPANY 95% of the time is almost as effective as boycotting it 100% of the time; this isn't an all-or-nothing deal.
