"... because the fact of the matter is: nobody knows What's going on, nobody has the faintest idea... Nobody has a clue...
The best guesses are lies. You may be sure of it."
I chose the internet, then, as my family, and lived thousands of lives. As many times as I changed my name. I feel I have been, at one point or another, everyone, more or less. I've stood on both sides of every fence, fought for and against every diatribe, cared earnestly for ideas, and watched them grow and die and grow and die in multitude of generations. Nothing retains its own coherency over time, yet some things remain.
That is all of what we are.
Today is the day! We're officially 11 years old!
@self I think it's gotten worse. HTML is used to make things pretty now, not to, oh I don't know, markup content like it was originally designed to do. And operating systems, like Linux and Android, with poor accessibility don't help either. Now, blind people usually prefer mobile apps and desktop clients because they feel *clean* compared to the sometimes very verbose, linear web, where keyboard commands are few and far in between, non-standard (look at Gmail then Twitter, or even Gmail compared to Google Voice.) And there are so many sites where headings could be used but aren't, and lists to facilitate things which can be skipped, like alternative language options for articles, replies to a comment, things like that. It's just poorly done, and even the "simple" layered approach of mobile apps are easier to use for us than the flat (to us) representation that is the web.
Oh and screen readers aren't magic, either. They're really quite dumb. They gather as much information as they can by the OS accessibility API's, which can be pretty good, like Windows, fairly okay, like Apple's, or pretty neglected, like Linux because no one wants to actually work on the core OS accessibility. Like I always say, accessibility starts with the OS.
#Introductions Hello Fosstodon! Glad to be a part of a //real// social media group -- one that fosters open communications and privacy. <== I get to chose -- which is the only real social thing to do.
This is my first post, or toot here.
I will setup my profile later and discover more.
@Tutanota I'm currently experiencing connectivity issues for the app and tutanota.com. Is it just me or is something going on?
The excuse for manufacturers to make lithium-ion batteries nowadays most often boils down to either
"I don't wanna put in the work to switch production materials."
"But salt batteries aren't as profitable because they last longer in storage and cost less to make, so we wouldn't sell as many and we'd have to charge less for each one."
Turns out capitalism drives innovation about as well as a kid throwing a temper tantrum for not being allowed the entire candy store.
The fittest survive.
What is meant by the fittest?
Not the strongest; not the cleverest —
Weakness and stupidity everywhere survive.
There is no way of determining fitness except in that a thing does survive.
"Fitness," then, is only another name for "survival."
That survivors survive.
-Charles Fort, “The Book of the Damned” (1919)
Will you survive X-Day?
The message of the #Agorist is more important now than ever before.
You can't change the system run by the Morgans, Rockefellers, Gates, or any others. The only system you can change is your household, your own stability. Save yourself. You are the only one you can change and that should be enough. That is real #socialchange.
