This is cool. Argos, a #Gnome shell extension so you can create your own extensions in no time. Create new shell extensions based on the output of a script/programme! I'm playing with it now and it's really nice and well put together.

If you're an instance admin, you might want to block 101010.pl entirely. They seem to be hiding a JavaScript crypto miner on their site: functional.cafe/@phoe/10054494

Anyone here going to Electromagnetic Field (emfcamp.org/)? Apart from @russss, that is? Maybe we should have a tootup.

The @kdecommunity Akademy delegates get a choice of lanyard. One lets other people know they don't want to be photographed. Not seen this at many events.

Fucking pissed at white dudes in free software prioritizing exercising their free speech by showing "look, I can make jokes which affect people not like me" and then being like "free software is a movement for everyone"

Nobody has ever questioned whether *I* belong. But I've tried to bring in plenty of other people who left because they didn't feel welcome.

I believe in free software, I want it to be a movement for everyone. Most of these people would say "I do too".

SO FUCKING ACT LIKE IT.

Why do people put so many emotions into postings. We are on the Internet. Whenever you write a swear word, just don't press the send button. Re-read your statement and rephrase the section.

If you are annoyed/sad/angry/… Keep calm. Breath. Think about how it could be explained that things are, like they are right now. If you know the answer, write a blog post with sources. If you don't know the answer, write non-suggestive questions.

I hope the internet becomes a calm place again 🀞 🀞 🀞

This account will host cases of GDPR "compliance" which are either actually non-compliant, abusive or use dark patterns to wrangle the user into accepting terms of service that track him or otherwise abuse their data.

Keep an eye on #GDPRHallOfShame and #DarkUX. Will boost nice relevant toots. Be civil though.

lol, amp. i noticed that a page would suddenly appear after 8 seconds of waiting if i disabled js, which seemed pretty weird.

turns out that there's a css3 anim to hide the page for 8 full seconds (that is skipped when the js loads ofc).

this is *required* by the amp standard. your page fails validation if you don't do this.

sure makes these goog results look kinda suspicious, huh

Yet another reason to get away from Facebook as quickly as you can. I absolutely do not consent to Facebook having my transaction data.

Please consider writing your hashtags in upper camelcase so screen readers have a chance at figuring them out.

#whyistayonmastodon sounds like an giant undecipherable mess of sounds.

#WhyIStayOnMastodon reads out "Why I Stay On Mastodon" πŸ˜„

(Reason #44 I stay here: my previous requests like this have been generally well-received, proving that most people are awesome.)

If you tried watching #DWebSummit, as I did via the live streams, you might have wanted to throw your device out the window. The Youtube stream was abominable.

HARK! I bring good news tech faces.

Being the Internet Archive and all, they had a strong archival plan in place. Despite Google being all sucky and stuff πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ you will still be able to binge watch the sessions. The news has come in that archives are good.

We're seeing quite a few new users registering over the last week or so, welcome folks!

If you have any questions, feel free to write a post or PM one of the team. Myself and @mike are the admins, and @joseph is a moderator.

OK, I concede that random forest algorithms are fairly clever... Still mostly uninterpretable, but definitely clever.

@david_ross thanks for the Seth thread. A bit of philosophical education for a Friday afternoon is always good
