OK. Now. Honestly. Seriously. For real: Did you – E V E R – really "forget" to subscribe? Did any reminder – E V E R – make you rethink your choices? How DARE those people to "remind" me of something that I passionately and purposefully decide NOT to do? The hubris! 😡 What makes me sad that by now it degraded to an emotionless set phrase everybody uses. 🤢

Please don't forget to boost this post. 🤮

Has the audacity fork not taken off? The homepage has no binaries and the chatroom kicks all matrix-only users. 🤨 On the bright side there are 6 rooms in the linked matrix space YAY! :awesome:

…anyhow, I don't even find binaries on the homepage… sad.

Last week I shared my first prototype designed in @penpot with a client and it worked seamlessly.

I'm excited to move more and more professional work projects from Figma to Penpot

I am sick and tired of constantly reviewing settings in web browsers to see if they have snuck in some new tracking mechanism that I get to disable because "your privacy is important to us".

I am sick and tired of all the black UX that goes into this, like opt out instead of opt in, or at least providing top level choices like, say, Fuck NO I'd NEVER EVER Like You To Track ANYTHING Now And In Every Perceivable Future. Like sync'ing every setting in your profile except tracking related settings, because hey that way you might by mistake opt out of tracking on another installation where you really wanted to be tracked. The list goes on and on.

Browsers are critical infrastructure and clearly an open source stamp on them fails in itself to provide any meaningful shield towards capitalist subversion.

I'd like a browser with a license that explicitly rules out *any* kind of commercial entity or interest contributing or directing development.

I just competently nuked a big mindmap with by not being aware of its "auto-save-on-exit f e a t u r e".

Somehow my root node got deleted and instead of messing around to get it back I just wanted to revert. Closed without saving. Opening the file I stared directly into total Nirvana.

Are. You. Kidding.

“A major French report released Tuesday found that an estimated 330,000 children were victims of sex abuse within France’s Catholic Church over the past 70 years, in France's first major reckoning with the devastating phenomenon.“


The difference between the Catholic Church and a pedophile ring is that you’re not told to respect pedophile rings and they’re not allowed to run schools.

Once more for the folks on the fediverse: speak up, make some noise, tell orgs/companies that you value your privacy and don’t want it violated. If their business model isn’t based on violating it (like Google/FB/etc.) and they’re intelligent (and understand a competitive advantage when they see one), they’ll respond positively and you’ll affect some positive change. It all adds up. Don’t stay quiet. Don’t resign yourselves to the shitty Silicon Valley status quo.

Found an insightful essay, almost a manifesto for game development. Focus on scaling, staying human and dreams.
I read it as parallel to architectural design, as on this level of values and abstraction principles stay mostly the same. Thanks Melos Han-Tani.
