Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:

Fawkes, a software developed by the Univ. of Chicago, can be used to modify your images at a pixel level so that they look they same to humans, but can no longer be used for automated image (i.e. person) recognition.
Would people be interested to have this integrated into Mastodon so it can be used on images they upload?

Google continues to abuse its market power, says @adrjeffries & @LeonYin.

“If Google can train you, don’t go to Genius, don’t go to TripAdvisor, don’t go to the restaurant’s website, just come to Google—always come to Google—then they win.”

"Trump says he will ban TikTok as the app could be used to collect the personal data of Americans"

Ban Facebook and Google too? Their data collection is so much more powerful. Never seen TikTok scripts anywhere while most apps and sites send your personal data to FB and Google.
