In einer gemäßigten Demokratie sollte man wenigstens so Werbebanner tragen, damit alle wissen, für wen man arbeitet.

Ich habe das eben im Parlament gezeigt, wie das aussehen könnte.

Hey! plumbers! How feasible would a peertube livestream be? Twitch style.

seems to miss basic editing features like:

* edit text after posting
* add more images to a post later on
* change the order of images

Is that on purpose?

As of yesterday #Microsoft's #DRM server is gone. If you have any ebooks through their store . . . bid them adieu ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Users will be given refunds but the books themselves will no longer be readable. If you made notes on the titles, you'll get $25 credit as a, "we're sorry you'll no longer have access to the notes you took on all those books. Here's $25 and we'll call it even!"

#DefectiveByDesign is a campaign run by the #FSF to combat Digital Restrictions Management and they work to prevent this exact kind of thing from happening.

…so how can one account follow another when they are not on the same instance? :pixelfed: 🤔

A smarthome concept that wasn't absolute hell: the mid-80s Soviet SPHINX project, based on the idea that there would be a central, modular PC and appliances in the house like the TV would connect to it via the LAN. Everything was designed to be easily-expandable or pared-down as needed. It was purely conceptual but the props looked cool as hell.

@alx I wonder: do you know "Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee" with Jerry Seinfeld? Not sure what a true CARdiologists view would be on that.

Having to deal with too much "meta" is a real motivational bummer. 😖

@Inkscape Never heard of the competition before. Why was only members of a closed, proprietary forum allowed to vote?

I followed Greta Thunberg's birdsite do matodon bot for a while, then did the same for Cory Doctorow's.
I had to unfollow both, it was completely destroying my favourite thing about my mastodon tl:
it's manageable scale. I feel on top of the feed, I'm able to keep up with the people / things I care about and nothing more.
Birdsite feels like a shouting match now more than ever.

Turns out the person turning down my proposal for a logo at the is now president of the – the very organization that motivated me to create a counterpart of its logo – because I can't stand that "open source" has a logo while "Free Software" has not. Maybe I was asking teh wrong organizations for permission and should try to just release it and see what happens.

So cynical: All those Github stickers on laptop lids suddenly advertised a proprietary Microsoft product despite people putting it there for completely different reasons… and only few care. A truly funny way to show your appreciation for creating code in the open... 🙈
