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.
Sorry, Fitbit users. Based on Google’s history, you’re likely to either eventually lose your Fitbit’s functionality, or get your health and exercise data sucked up by the Google machine. https://blog.fitbit.com/2021-update/
"Getting people to value privacy is like trying to get somebody raised on Burger King to value their heath. They won't know how important it is until they have that first stroke."

A government has to full fill freedom of speech, not a social platform! Any platform can create it's own rules and ban users for not complying as simple as that..
It's not that you don't have "free speech", people/platform just don't wanna listen to your shit if you get banned.

I didn't like Brave before, but today a friend told me about Brave's CEO. This is (imo) the definitive reason of why Brave shouldn't be used.
I didn't know that their CEO was the co-founder of Mozilla, that guy that was (and is) against same sex marriage and that's an antimasker, Brendan Eich. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brendan_Eich
