Hey guys, just a little update: this still hasn't changed.

Please remember: functional cookies (login session, shopping carts) do not need user consent. So every time you see one of this oversized cookie banners someone is trying (often through dark patterns) to make you accept the whole tracking and spying as well. Don't be mad at the legislative for creating the need for tracking consent. Be mad at the websites that are trying to stir you up against that law by annoying you with those banners.

Dear fediverse, is there a twitter and mastodon client on linux which works for both with multi account support? Boosts are appreciated! Thanks!

sometimes i think about the fact that people routinely browse the web without noscript, uBlock Origin, and Cookie Autodelete, and get the chills.

It's funny to see so many people complain about how Signal is developed or maintained meanwhile they're accomplishing what nobody else ever has: making end-to-end encryption accessible to non-experts for real. They have invented and continue to invent novel techniques overcoming complex technical challenges to do so, all while not complicating the UX. So before you criticize, consider that your criticism might be irrelevant to anyone outside the narrow scope of computing enthusiasts.

An interesting read on the state of the Mac: sneak.berlin/20201204/on-trust

As someone who manages them on a day-to-day basis, there is a positive side to knowing they have to check in.

From a personal and privacy viewpoint, it terrifies me.

The developers of Signal are currently doing a user survey:

surveys.signalusers.org/s3

I told them that I really like the app but also that I would like:
a) Signal on @fdroidorg
b) a proper desktop client
c) no data stored in "secure enclaves"

Maybe you'd like to tell them, too?

I'd like to add to this: I was surprised by this person's message because fosstodon is so apolitically oriented, there's no bigotry here as long as I have been here. This instance is, as far as I have experienced it, a haven and refuge for all, especially those who are tech-inclined. If all instances were nurturing communities like fosstodon does, the fediverse would be a much nicer place.

Hmmm maybe I need a shirt with this QR code on the back

Or maybe on a backpack because I don't wear tshirts

I need entire children books of this kind to give to my nephews! We all need this.

The next generation will grow up with browsers and apps obfuscating the fundamental processes that guarantee our online safety. Unless provided to them by us, they will never be educated on how to stay safe online.

I'm so sick and tired of seeing the same material and/or metro or similar designs everywhere I go on the web

Those are like the most soulless design languages in existence, they're like the so-called "corporate music" in graphical form

I want to see people do their unique, personal things again
