I am currently testing tootle, a simple GTK-based Mastodon client for Linux. It looks and feels very gnome-y. But not having an emoji selector in the toot composer somehow feels strange.

Hallo liebes Tagebuch.
Heute hatte ich im Rahmen meiner Ausbildung die ersten Stunden in Programmieren und IT Sicherheit.
Das wird interessant.

Ich habe ein interaktives Rust Tutorial gefunden. Die Aufgaben bestehen aus Programmschnippseln, die vervollständigt werden sollen. Für alle Aufgaben werden die relevanten Stellen des Rust Books referenziert.

Hey now that’s pretty neat, github.com/videogamepreservati

They collect/archive the source code for old video games, amongst them Alien vs. Predator, Descent, MechCommander 2, etc. etc.!
Lots of good games we used to play back in the days!

I think it's beautiful how imperfections make art. Software developers work really hard to add imperfections to art programs and CGI, because humans can sense when something is too perfect; we're made uncomfortable by it.

We love the grit and grain of the page and the graphite. The rough and irregular edges of ink and chalk. The imprecision of the human hand.

Don't be perfect. Be you. That's what people want. That's art.

It’s not data ethics, it’s ethics.

It’s not data privacy, it’s privacy.

It’s not digital rights, it’s human rights in the digital/networked age.

Let’s make sure we keep the focus on what’s important and not allow well-understood terms, concepts, and existing rights to be redefined by those with vested interests in clouding* the conversation and eroding our human rights by backdooring in a new set of lesser rights for the digital/networked aspects of our selves.

* See what I did there? 😛

Etwas dilettantische Zeichnungen (bin kein Grafiker), aber vereinfacht ungefähr so kann man sich die Infrastruktur von Twitter und #Mastodon und seinen Instanzen vorstellen.

Habe bei angefragt, wann ich bei Black Mirrror vorgespult oder auf Stop gedrückt habe. Zum Glück haben die sich das gemerkt - Für alles, was ich jemals gesehen habe: zeit.de/digital/datenschutz/20?
