We should build systems which don't scale. Instead build small systems which federate or peer together. When a single server can host millions of accounts then it's easy for Big Tech to move in and colonize the space at very little cost. We should not be fostering “economies of scale” for efficient capitalization. Prefer an ecology to a factory farm.

Does anyone know a good Cryptography book/e-book for Dyslexics? (German or English)

I needs something with whole sentences, instead of just formulas with Greek letters, since I read by more by grammar and syllable reg-ex than by letters.

Something that explains each variable before use maybe?

Ist die Klimagerechtigkeitsbewegung radikal genug oder muss sie so militant werden wie die Anti-Atom-Bewegung im Wendland?

So this might be an unusual question but in XFCE (Manjaro) is there a way to set a global zoom / scaling setting like in Windows? Going from 1080p to 2160p is really something and adjusting every application to different "zoom" or "scaling" settings like fonts, etc. is exhausting.

So any tip and suggestion is appreciated.

Also if there is nothing in XFCE is there anything like this in like GNOME or other DEs?

The real story is that ‘developing’ nations have done remarkably better at fighting COVID-19 than the rich and white. The real story starts precisely where the western map ends. Here be dragons. We be dragons.

The real story is that places like Vietnam and Mongolia have completely kicked COVID-19’s ass. The real story is that places like Rwanda and Ghana have innovated and survived. There are countless stories like this — from Sri Lanka to Trinidad & Tobago, but you wouldn’t know because we’re not rich or white. But you should know. Because we’re right. This information could save your life.

(But please keep posting about a vaccine, eating like normal, and relying on your institutions to save you. It'll all work out for you I'm sure.)

Question for the #Pinafore community:

Currently, when you click a link to a website in Pinafore, the website doesn't know you came from Pinafore. (In tech terms, the "Referer" header is not sent.)

However, this has side effects in the "extract text from image" feature – it might not work sometimes. What do you prefer?

- Don't tell sites I came from Pinafore
- Tell sites I came from Pinafore

Thanks.

Does anyone know of a noSQL or SQL database, which allows ordinary clients to query an earlier state? i.e. have access to all (or a reasonable number of) prior revisions of the data within the schema; pretend that the query happened "10 minutes ago" or similar.

boosts welcome, please! :)

Könnt ihr Methoden oder Tools für geheime Abstimmungen bei Online-Mitgliederversammlungen empfehlen?

Die MV von unserem -Förder- steht an, und könnte theoretisch wohl online stattfinden; aber dann müssten wir wohl trotzdem eine Möglichkeit für geheime Wahlen anbieten, falls das jemand einfordert.

Is there any community/link aggregator interested in technology and intellectual curiosity that is like with a leftist perspective? boosts welcome!

Something like lobste.rs, but not just about technology.

Looking for some good fantasy books/stories with strong female characters.

I thought tech is cool because I can make interesting things with it, can automate boring things away, etc, but the larger picture is that capitalists fucked everything up real bad, and most of the tech exists only to exploit people and sell more tech
