Created a discord account for the first time. Wow, interface is so smooth and well designed. But very disappointed with how they completely misuse the term "server". Almost thought it was a distributed system first. Nope it is simply their name for a "slack team".
I'm feeling like an old internet witch, but how are these gamers ever gonna become linux admins when they think a server is just a group of people? 😅

Third-party scripts slow the web. Google owns 7 of 10 most popular third-party calls.
They understand the value of a fast web but they cannot go after the main cause. This is how AMP gets invented and makes things worse.
This video affected and inspired me today. Trying to shape new more rewarding personal behaviors is difficult but this makes a me a little more hopeful :)

So umm you insult someone on the internet calling him a "pedo" because he laughed at your tech.
Instead of brushing that off you hire a detective to actually prove your random pedo remark. Since you are super rich the detective finds some unjustified proof so you pay up.
You then go to court and pretend it's all a misunderstanding?
Yeah a misunderstanding that you are not an incredibly entitled billionaire.
I've decided to offer myself up as a voice coach for trans people who need it free/cheap.
No matter what you desire to work towards, you come to me as a friend I would like to help be comfy. Whether that be feminising, masculinising, or a voice made of various different elements :)
We will do exercises, talk about posture, be hydrated, apply it to real life, and I promise to tailor things to meet your needs.
I will do this over discord. DM me if you fancy this.
I'm starting to think that the appeal of sandbox games such as Minecraft under late capitalism lies in the players' encounter with a world where not everything is owned and defined already.
Especially for the majority of people that lives in urban surroundings these days, it may well be the first time they find themselves able to interact with their environment and shape something new.
It's closely related to the art of graffiti, redefining and in doing so appropriating the liminal and / or inaccessible spaces that abound in the urban landscape, such as bridges, tunnels, railroads and streets.
Personally, I don't care that Mastodon isn't grotesquely huge like our centralized counterparts. They may have millions of users, but its worth fuck-all if I can't meaningfully connect with any of them. Divisive, metric-driven algorithms that encourage conflict to generate revenue for shareholders is not MY social media... #MastodonIsMine.

privacytools.io has removed Wire from their list of recommended secure messengers:
"[W]e have trusted them in the past because Wire had built a trustworthy reputation for themselves. We now feel that Wire has lost this reputation."
Currently their only recommendation for real-time communication is Signal: https://www.privacytools.io/software/real-time-communication/
Welcome to all the people from India that are joining Mastodon in these days!!
We understand that you are still unconfident with this platform, therefore here you will find some helpful tips to better understand how #Mastodon works:
- There is no such thing as "A" social network called Mastodon! Instead there are thousands of independent social networks called Mastodon Instances.
- Every Instance has his own server, community, rules, admins and moderation.
- Every Instance can interact with users that are on other Instances, exactly like email works (you can send an email from gmail to yahoo, right?).
- Every Instance can choose to silence or completely block another Instance (i.e. because permits bad behaviour)
Ubuntu got where it is now partly by explicitly reaching out to non techs and not using the response of RTFM. That's an approch I think we need to take now with #Privacy and #Decentralisation. It's not enough to claim technical superiority or that it's a more ethical position to take. We need to focus more on reaching to folks outside our field. We need to practice active patience and empathy. Soft skills as well as tech skills.
