My response to a dangerous turd of an article by Bart van der Sloot (co-founder of Amsterdam Privacy Week ā€“ sponsored by Palantir and Google ā€“ and docent teaching ā€œPrivacy and Big Dataā€ at Tilburg University)

Mr. Sloot attempts to reframe privacy as a ā€œscienceā€ and shame those who work to protect it for having a ā€œpro-privacy agendaā€ & not being ā€œneutralā€. He also calls for ā€œnew rulesā€ to disallow such biased behaviour.

Brutalist web design will never fade, because it is "progressive-ready". I can drop it in reader mode or override with local style *very easily*. That's amazing interactive design! No javascript required!

Never forget the complicity of YouTube/Google in spreading far right propaganda.

I honestly donā€™t get the appeal of power lifting or CrossFit for that matter

Hey, World of Toots, my friends' silly game Kickstarter (5 hours left!) about space cats overcoming space Fascists has come to the attention of IRL Fascists.

If you want to support the interests of cats over those of Fascists, you can back the game!

I teach at Lighthouse, an alternative high school in the very poor city of Holyoke, MA. I teach kids electronics, woodworking, drawing, and bookbinding, and this year we have a luthier on staff! Help us teach kids by buying us stuff from our Amazon list!

We're !

(Aside: some of those kids on the site are my students and they are BABIES in those pictures!)
