“I hear people talking the language of participation, justice, equality and transparency but almost no one raises the real issue of tax avoidance and of the rich just not paying their fair share.”
@ohyran I think they both have a place, and I'll just use wherever the community I want is. As the co-author of ActivityPub said at the ActivityPub panel from a couple of hours ago (#FOSDEM): Google and Facebook don't have to notice us and try to go against us because we fight enough among our own to make that not necessary
@dankwraith I think it's pretty incredible how many analytically-minded people who are celebrated for scientific/mathematic achievements are also socialists and how we just... ignore that part of their legacy.
Society: "Amazing! Incredible! A truly brilliant mind!!"
Einstein: "The economic anarchy of capitalist society as it exists today is, in my opinion, the real source of the evil."

I wish we could get auto toot split (not just in replies) but also in the main composition view.. So often I keep writing without paying attention to the characters, I often finish around 1K or 2K characters and then I have to manually cut my toot into pieces.. While doing so I noticed I could cut everything less 500 first characters and then reply to this toot to have it auto splitted in subsequent replies.. It works.. But why not make auto splitting a default behavior? @mastalab
Last month rush at work made me forgot how good #streetpecker Cafe and Staff is and the Music :))
