There's something rather nice abouy working on a project that let's me update my own bio on the project website (and push access to master goes live within minutes).
So now my OpenPGP fingerprint won't trail off the edge of the screen on a phone display:
And I plugged this account.
When you are a youtuber and want to help #peertube to success, help it by making your peertube content more exclusive than your Youtube content.
How to do?
Post your videos 2 days earlier on Peertube before you publish them on YouTube.
This doesn't hurt you or your followers while giving them a good reason to switch and make YouTube less central :)
Interested in a decentralized video hosting network? Well, the folks @Framasoft are creating one called PeerTube.
And they're looking to crowdfund support for it. If you want to back the project, you can learn more here: https://www.kisskissbankbank.com/en/projects/peertube-a-free-and-federated-video-platform
It's not so bad if shit happens provided you serve the right wine with it.
Or alternatively, just load in a fresh tab rather than reloading.
Based on the holes in my TL, I guess chaos.social is still having media display woes since the instance upgrade, yeah?
At some point in the last few years, we have:
) Viewed you through a scrying pool and/or mirror
) Crafted a double of you from blood and willpower and used it to manipulate your moods and actions and/or
) Sunk into a dark liquid pool, then rose again to the surface but the surface was your eyes, through which we saw all you saw, thought as you thought, as intimate as breath.
Due to new legislation, now we have to ask:
Can we keep doing all that?
So today, just to meet the quota for the Things That Will Annoy Danny At EFF Dot Org category; today I got GPG working with SMS. It's a bit ad-hoc, of course, but it does work.
Admittedly it does require running an SMS gateway REST server on the phone (which is an old piece of shit that struggles to retain power at the best of times), but it does work. There's also really horrible delays in delivery when sending 5KB+ SMSes (good thing they're unlimited on my plan).
"It's time for tech people to have values, as journalism, medicine and law do. Deliberately taking features out of the web, claiming pieces of the web as corporate property, forcing the history offline, all are terrible abuses of what make the Internet great. An ethical technologist would refuse to do this work."
According to the exit poll done by Irish Times, Ireland just legalized abortion 68 to 32% !!
I hate it when the companies trying to be gdpr compliant say stuff like "your privacy is important to us". Bitch, if you gave a fuck about my privacy, you would already have all this in order before a law forces you to do this.
Day 3 of my #Mastodon experiment. Some observations:
1. It feels like I'm interacting with actual people, and they're generally nice and take the time to write me back a thoughtful comment
2. Reading a chronological timeline (instead of one manufactured to keep me scrolling) has relieved some anxiety I wasn't even previously aware of having
3. There's a general lack of clutter - no ads, clickbait links, uncensored outrage posts - that enables me to actually *think* about what I'm reading.
@skiant Where do we find this link?
Tumblr tried to sneak in data collection under the radar. After a few taps, you can get a list of who they're sharing data with.
The list takes 19 screenshots to see all the names on my phone.
Speaking of things that are making me think... This article challenges a few of my assumptions about "secure" websites. The part about Google forcing sites to HTTPS - that snuck up on me. Thanks for this @firstname.lastname@example.org
