Damit Alternativen zu den Überwachungsplattformen eine Chance haben, werden Journalist.innen gesucht, die dezentrale soziale Medien erklären.
🌲 Pomologie française:

Finally, a secure programming language. It also expresses how I feel about code.
🍄 Nouvel atlas de poche des champignons comestibles et vénéneux.

Lua becoming more of an alternative to VimL is also a big one.
I think I tooted the exact same thing ~2 years ago on another account, but:

sustainability + poverty
Have you noticed that people living comfortably enough to opine about it are often dramatically out of touch about consumer goods?
Like it's cute to say "patch clothes! re-sole shoes!" but that's not how inexpensive clothing works any longer. You can't repair shoes from Walmart; they're not even sewn. You can't patch $10 jeans.

I'm back on (f-droid powered) #Android and #Debian. After roughly a year of using the #Apple ecosystem I'm going to sell all my devices. I wanted to go back eventually because I wasn't really convinced and missed the fosslife, but last week's news accelerated it.

Google will follow suit.
Soon any system that doesn’t implement on-device scanning/reporting will be deemed illegal (or carry an association of guilt).
It won’t be limited to phones/tablets. Your Mac is next. General computing as we know it could cease to exist.
It won’t be limited to the initial content. Erdoğan, Putin, Orban, Bolsanaro… will decide the scope.
