Australia is about to commit the network technology equivalent of Brexit. A self-own of colossal proportions. Nice knowing you, Australian technology industry, it was fun while it lasted #aabill twitter.com/tomsulston/status/

Pls RT: Hey folks who live in The Netherlands, Germany, or Ireland! I'm doing some research on transgender rights, medical access, and the prevalence of hate crimes against LGBTQ people. If you can connect me with trans people in those countries, please send me a DM. Thanks!

Wusstet ihr, wem das »Kinder darf man nicht verwöhnen« entsprungen ist? Es wird spekuliert, dass das ein Grund für die Bindungsprobleme vieler Menschen sein könnte.

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

Dear programmers, if someone asks for help about a paticular language please don't hold it over them. Saying things like:

"Shouldn't you know that?"

Someone could code 6 years in C and have no idea about basic OO principles. If they've done some research and can't make sense of them and then they ask a programming discord, you don't need to shit on them. You can just help them.

TLDR: Shitting on people for not knowing about something you know doesn't make you a better programmer.

Dear Fediverse,

Soon, some venture capitalist will put $5 million into a startup that offers free fediverse accounts with unlimited storage, etc.

Unless every other instance instantly blocks such a service from Day 1, you can kiss your fediverse goodbye and say hello to a new Gmail. Once network effects kick in, they will make the rules.

It _can_ happen here but you have an opportunity to kill it before it does.

no #Chrome, no Google applications), and visits only non-Google webpages, the number of times #data is communicated to Google servers still remains surprisingly high."
