Something about how the magic of capitalism means that we don't have to toil away in factories so instead we have service jobs and I raised my hand and was like "so... we're doing work that didn't exist before?" and the teacher was like "yes?" and I was like "okay but most of these jobs don't make us materially better so why don't we just stop doing all these things and have some free time?" and the teacher had a meltdown.
... and that's my origin story.
Is there a "Google-free" operating system for smartphones that reliably supports MAC-randomisation?
#GrapheneOS apparently supports it since it's now based on Android Q, but you need a relatively recent Google Pixel 3 variant for it, which is prohibitive for many people (price, ethics, sustainability).
MAC randomization is a seriously underappreciated privacy feature, especially if you want to promote WiFi-only use. 👍
Who owns the products that you buy? If the answer is you, shouldn’t you be able to repair what you rightfully own? We have a historic opportunity to get smartphones regulated by the EU so they can become more easily repairable, and last longer ✍️ ⤵️ https://repair.eu/smartphones/
Some Google employees made a website. I would summarize their three objections as follows:
1) helping out border patrol and immigration with data
2) helping the fossil fuel industry with machine learning
3) doing (and publicly asking for more) mercenary work
I think these are also valid reasons to leave Google as a customer.
Looks like Tutanota is being blocked in Russia. Could you help us narrow this down?

Vollautomatisiertes Fahren wird in nächster Zeit nicht massentauglich werden, und mit an Sicherheit grenzender Wahrscheinlichkeit auch nicht praktikabel sein.
Dieses "bald wird jeder in vollautonomen E-Autos unterwegs sein und kein eigenes Auto brauchen" ist nicht weniger utopisch als "im Jahr 2000 werden wir alle Flugautos haben und es wird Städte unter Wasser geben"...

Hannah Ritchie, Our World in Data: *Less meat is nearly always better than sustainable meat, to reduce your carbon footprint*
"I have shown previously that what we choose to eat has the largest impact, making a bigger difference than how far our food has traveled, or how much packaging it’s wrapped in. This is because only a small fraction comes from transport and packaging and most of our food emissions come from processes on the farm, or from land use change.
Regardless of whether you compare the footprint of foods in terms of their weight (e.g. one kilogram of cheese versus one kilogram of peas); protein content ; or calories, the overall conclusion is the same: plant-based foods tend to have a lower carbon footprint than meat and dairy. In many cases a much smaller footprint.
As an example: producing 100 grams of protein from peas emits just 0.4 kilograms of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2eq). To get the same amount of protein from beef, emissions would be nearly 90 times higher, at 35 kgCO2eq. …"

Winter storm #Ciara is approaching Europe. In the #Netherlands, this means that the 6th edition of the Dutch national championships in #headwind #cycling will take place this Sunday. Winds are forecasted to be 7 Beauforts from Southwest. (Wo)Man and machine against the elements, does it get any better?
