And that's maybe the crux of my general feeling of unhappiness with the current leading edge of computer science and programming languages theory (Haskell et al and the type people):
I think they're focussing so much on 'correctness of computing / computability' that they have lost sight of 'correctness of *data import/export fidelity*'. And I think data is more important than computation.
Data outlives computation and passes through multiple computing machines.
Curate your own Fediverse
* Use filters liberally to remove posts that annoys you
* Mute or block other people or bots who get boosted into your timeline if you don't want to see them again
* Try to remember to not click on CW's for stuff that will leave you feeling worse
And you never have to explain why
You can do so for reasons that are entirely "selfish" or "petty"
E.g. "Their jokes were crass so I muted them"
Make the Fediverse a place that's good for you

KaiOS is doing well in India, but it’s pulling some big numbers in US too
I continue with my #obsession with #KaiOS. US mobile carriers like #ConsumerCellular that cater to older people seem to use feature phones only powered by #KaiOS. Does this mean that I have to wait another decade or so to buy one?
If you're new to Mastodon and the Fediverse, you may be looking for ways to connect with people.
Here are some suggestions:
✅ Do a post telling the world a little bit about yourself with the hashtag #Introductions
✅ Visit the opt-in community directory Trunk to find people to follow, it's organised by topic:
✅ Use hashtags! These are the only way to search the fediverse, so they make your posts much easier to discover.
Die *Tagesschau* titelt: "Plastiktüten: Verbot für ein Randproblem"
Italien hat so ein Verbot seit 2011!
Mag sein, dass es sich nur um 1% des Plastikmülls handelt und ja, das ist absolut Symbolpolitik. Aber symbolische Praxen bedeuten auch etwas! Durch so ein Gesetz ("Verbot"), das die Bürger:innen täglich spüren, schafft man Bewusstsein für das Problem und bringt die Menschen zur Selbstreflexion.
@upic Es geht nicht darum, öffentliche Posts einzuschränken, auch nicht um öffentliche vs. private Posts. Es geht um die Auswertung öffentlicher Posts, die Verknüpfung mit anderen Informationen, die Erstellung von Bewegungsprofilen - um Profiling mithilfe sämtlicher öffentlicher Informationen zu einer Person. Das verbinden die wenigsten mit ihrem Post. Denn das ist nicht der Zweck der Veröffentlichung des Posts.
Informationspflicht und Widerspruchsrecht sind gesetzlich geregelt.

Have been working for multiple multinationals, Microsoft which was the last of them. While I am thankful for the time spent there, going my own (FLOSS) way now.
