I just watched the beginning of the Colbert Report from last night. He described my feeling pretty spot on:
"We've all been too deep in it for the last four years to truly realize what we were deeply in. It's like we've been on a ship that's been in a storm for four years and we just stepped on dry land."
**New Study Finds Chicago Uber and Lyft Drivers Are Paid Below Minimum Wage**
"In 2019 and 2020, ride-hail drivers brought in less money than the state-wide minimum wage after expenses and taxes."
The desktop version of Mastodon has two different interfaces: a single column Twitter-style one, and a multicolumn Tweetdeck-style one.
✅ To switch between Mastodon's desktop interfaces, go to Preferences > Appearance > Enable Advanced Web Interface. Selecting it activates multicolumn, unselecting it activates single column.
Multicolumn lets you add lots of additional columns, which may be handy for desktops on very wide monitors.

Yesterday morning, MSNBC's Jonathan Capehart shared these thoughts from Dr. King on conscience:
"Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' Vanity asks the question, 'Is it popular?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?'"
Over the past four years, we have paid the price for cowardice, expediency and vanity.
As we celebrate Dr. King's legacy and pull back the curtain on a new tomorrow, I hope we all have the conscience to do the right thing. #MLKDay2021
I can't help lamenting the slow demise of #Mozilla #Firefox. They have been laying off productive staff while their executive leadership team receives annual salaries in excess of 6 figures. They have missed the boat on an effective mobile browser while the number of computer users dwindles and the number of mobile users skyrockets. They have tried forcing stupid ideas like pocket on their users. They need a leadership change now before it's too late if it isn't already.
For anyone looking for an alternative to #fitbit after recent acquisition by #google, there's https://gadgetbridge.org/ which is a #foss #android app for several fitness trackers that allows you use them without the vendor's proprietary app/service.
Unfortunately, it doesn't currently support #fitbit devices.
