Trying an acct over on @thrivecurious to see if I can get it to talk to my masto phone app.

What is happening at daffodil-11?
Is this a security concern, a bot, or just someone who keeps making new accounts?

Theft? More like reapropriating labor value.

Once upon a time, FOSS enthusiasts were so concerned about Microsoft, that they recommended everyone use GMail and Google Apps.

Today the same crowd hates Google, so they recommend $SERVICE instead...

As long as $SERVICE is a provider in the cloud, on somebody else's computer, I'm shaking my head.

Many of the things being recommended are even more proprietary and locked-down than Google's stuff is!

Fighting monopolies is good. But don't lie to yourself that this helps software freedom.

Setting the florespondence tag as a column is self-care.

Company wide conference call today to learn how to use the new conference phones. LOVE TO EXIST IN THIS REALITY.

National anthems are proof that nationalists are terrible at art.

“IM AN EMPATH” I scream, careening into the room knocking over multiple stacks of dishes and tripping your grandma as she makes her way to the restroom

I feel like not enough people focus on the fact that Germany wants to outlaw hosting Tor servers. A significant amount of Tor is hosted from Germany, but more importantly, if Germany outlaws it, many other countries that so far were afraid to do so will follow suite. All intelligence agencies despise Tor and lobby their governments to shut it down. It's a slippery slope.

it's called the Butlerian Jihad because in Dune canon, the first AI was AskJeeves

The thing that makes the kitten mug disquieting is actually very specific -- the issue is simply that when we gaze upon the mug, we compulsively begin confessing to crimes we did not commit.

Men are always like "if I had titties I'd just be inside playing with them all day" but when you tell them they can make that happen they freak the fuck out.

@starwall @_aD Honeslty Russian villages just have great flags? This one I didn't even seen until earlier today! Novokharitonskoe, Russia.

It's actually supposed to symbolize electrical insulators, the main industry in their town!

When Fortunato (Jim Carrey) is trapped in a wine cellar by his supposed friend Montresor, he finds a strange mask that grants him bizarre powers

I think a lot about how essential, unfun labor is organized in The Dispossessed and Anarresti society.

I would really love to duck out of work for a week every month to dig ditches, irrigate fields, build railways, and generally improve society. There's so much work to be done! But of course, we don't value that.

Someone on meetup started a pro-femme group and I have never heard a more apt description of this cultural phenomena

"Have you ever wondered why women are often the harshest critics of other women? This problem is driven by the idea of scarcity: believing that there are only a few spots at the top for women and in order to make it, you must compete with other women."

Our culture needs to become post-scarcity on so many levels.
