I'm actually kinda proud of my family bc this is the first time we've all supported a strike together. All of us use Amazon stuff now and then. But now we've talked to the kids about it on their level, and even they are participating. The family doesn't cross picket lines.

Adobe Creative Cloud holds creative works hostage: if you stop paying the monthly fee or if Adobe's servers go down, you can't edit your work. Once you buy into the Adobe ecosystem, you're stuck there and forced to pay rent.

There are many free open alternatives which give you full control over your work without locking you down:

This is somewhat similar to tactics used by North Korea's regime to track people:

"(North Korean operating system) Red Star tackles this by tagging, or watermarking, every document or media file on a computer or on any USB stick connected to it. That means that all files can be traced."

My hours at work have been cut, I will have to start freelancing again or try to get more higher tier Patreon sponsors if I want to keep working on Pixelfed this much.

If you know anyone looking for a full stack laravel developer, let me know!

There's a culture of negativity forming on the fediverse, similar to other platforms. The instinct is to call attention to it and critique it, but that itself is just creating more negativity

I think a better tactic is to make a conscious effort to create and spread more positive content, even simple stuff like the plants you're growing or the meal you're having
