Bubbles != Schubladen

Schubladen -> Kategorisierung von Stereotypen
Bubbles -> Gesellschaftliche Gruppierungen mit höherer Intrakommunikation als Interkommunikation.

Ich bin mir sicher, dass "wir" uns in einer gewissen Bubble befinden - manche weniger andere mehr.
Man sollte darüber reflektieren und versuchen den Effekt so gering wie möglich zu halten.

#sway and #sway-devel have been seized by Andrew Lee on Freenode. Don't use them, use Libera Chat instead.

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

#Katze #entlaufen!

Am Morgen des 30.11. ist unser jugendlicher braun gestreifter, weiß gefleckter Kater Findus in #Bielefeld/#Schildesche (Raum Schäferstr.) spazieren gegangen und nicht heimgekommen. Ist er in einen Keller oder Schuppen geklettert? Wer ihn sieht: PN an mich!

Copying ain't stealing,
sure as I'm breathing,
information wants to be free.

The mafia wants us to believe
youtube-dl was made for thieves.
In fact,
it was made for human beings.

We might listen to your pleas,
once you respect our machines,
they belong to us - not you.

Your drivers are mean,
your blobs illicit,
the hardware complicit,
and yet--
it's never stopped piracy.

The real caper is your crimes.
The theft of OUR public domain.
DMCA abuse, attacks on fair use.
Net neutrality and regulatory capture.

Sell it to us fair and square,
your terms are too much to bear,
and until you're playing fair,
fuck off!

Yo ho, yo ho. A pirate's life for me!

Note on the #youtubedl DMCA takedown this night.

In a very unusual turn RIAA justifies the takedown request with EU/German law and claim US analogy to EU rules. (the attachment with a copy of the Hamburg court rule they refer to somehow not linked, one can only guess that this links to §95a UrhG).

Wer im Jahr 2020 die Datenschutzkonformität einer Software allein auf Papierlage beurteilt bzw. bewertet, der hat schlichtweg keinen Schimmer davon, wie "kreativ" und großzügig Unternehmen die DSGVO (in ihrem Sinne) auslegen.

In reality, Hacktoberfest is a corporate-sponsored distributed denial of service attack against the open source maintainer community.

@garritfra is @sir ‘s baby. It’s a great service and much lighter and arguably easier to use than GitHub/GitLab. It’s vastly more open source than GitHub.

Great service, would `git push` again. A++++

For 4 years my personal website relied ENTIRELY on javascript to display anything 🤦‍♀️ and none of these 4 years show up on the wayback machine, one of my biggest regrets..

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.
