I live very close to a factory… the smell of (burnt) coffee in the morning is overrated

Went full nerd and started creating a spreadsheet to evaluate which paying plan is best for my pool usage... Am I the only one who does these things?

started something, if English is not your native language and you've tried to raise awareness of social media risks, finding resources can be hard.
Consider translating some?

@humanetech Boosts appreciated

Hi #fediverse

There's global movement in the field of #humanetechnology due to #TheSocialDilemma and many others tirelessly fighting for a better internet.

Many great resources, such as exist. But as @lopeztel pointed out: Most are in English only!! For #socialcooling we have volunteers to translate this page.

We may crowdsource translating of #humanetech resources more structurally: As a project.

I created this thread to gauge your interest:

@lopeztel @calculsoberic

I have just created a forum topic to gauge interest for a translation project. Will create a separate toot to announce.

@theprivacyfoundation thanks for sharing this further. A great site.

To anyone reading: I have approached the creator, because several members of our community want to translate to their own language. Currently Italian and Spanish (thank you @lopeztel 🙏 )

Have a translation to add? Wonderful! Then add your comment to this thread:

@humanetech I
I realized most of the resources available to raise awareness of privacy and the risks of social media are only available in English, however, in my country only highly educated people speak the language.
Is there an ongoing effort to gather and translate resources?
Translation makes sense as less educated people are usually most vulnerable and sometimes make the bulk of a country's population
