Buster is a browser extension that solves goog's reCAPTCHA's audio challenges using speech recognition. It is a tiny thing but it spares you both the humiliation and the cognitive energy involved in training the algorithms of your future oppression.
I've had it for years and it works really well, give it a go.

Reason number XXXXX why the web is broken.
This is a tool for anonymizing photographs taken at protests.
It will remove identifying metadata (Exif data) from photographs, and also allow you to selectively blur parts of the image to cover faces and other identifiable information.
The r/FOSSDroid community may benefit from a centralized list of #OpenSource #Android apps. While closed-source services continue to plague the ecosystem, we NEED to ensure that the people have the power, instead of greedy companies.

@jkb The ironic lesson from our data-analysis was that windows was worst in this. Linux, Android and iOS came out as best tuned to actual user-prefs. Mac-safari too, but Chrome and FF on mac not much. Chrome, IE and FF on mac were by far the most "off".
We looked at headers-sent referenced with "people chaning the language setting in the app".
Dear Web developers:
My browser sends with each and every single request a "Accept-Language" header that tells you that I'd like to be served English language first, French second.
Stop forcing Dutch content just because I happen to be browsing from Belgium.
Just because I'm browsing the Web from a country doesn't mean I understand any or all of that country's languages. People don't become polyglot overnight just by travelling.
If you're not willing to use HTTP in your Web apps, please die.
New Blog Post: A Quick Rant About Web Font Sizes
So far I can import OPML files (at least from Feedly). Import feed entries, and make all the data accessible via web frontend.

I'm still pretty new to Mastodon and all the stuff.
Just found https://peer.tube/videos/watch/d9bd2ee9-b7a4-44e3-8d65-61badd15c6e6 by email@example.com. Cool video that explains the ideas, concept and potential.
I'm trying to use https://openlibrary.org/ as well as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:BookSources?isbn=1566091594 and see how it works. But still would like to hear your experiences.
I'm not talking about setting up your own collection of books, just something like Wikipedia dedicated to books.
I often want to share a specific book with someone, e.g. to recommend it. Amazon is more or less always the top hit on search engines.
Rediscovering the Small Web
"Today's web is mostly commercial. The smaller web of individuals has neither the resources nor the will to compete for visibility and audience the way the commercial web does"
Another great post by @neustadt - welcome to Mastodon by the way, a part of the new small web!

Why his site now uses whatever the default sans-serif font is.
I don't think we have to discuss whether the web is bloated, it indeed is.
I hope more people will try to create a better web. And hopefully I contributed to a better web.
If you find something bloated or broken, please tell me.
