If people on the left could support people on the left, we would have a lot more success.

I was reminded by this https://mastodon.social/@dromografos/101074414614568916 news story today of when a small IT-consulting company I worked for started a software development project, so hired a new person with very long and advanced career in systems administration direct to the management group.
We were confused by the person didn't understand such simple phrases like "click the start-menu", but we wrote it off to the person having mostly worked with mainframes.
Eventually though, it was revealed that the person was actually a pathological liar with an additional severe sociopath diagnosis, because the person was forcibly committed. Turned out the person had never worked in the computer-industry at all.
Remarkable that it's possible for someone to just bluff others like that. :-O
pretty disgusting how monetized the college textbook industry is
lol if he thinks we'll rest there

Tech: Storage scenario: IPFS or DAT Show more
Imagine this scenario:
I want to store terabytes of publicly available data. I'm not expecting that this data will be downloaded very often, but it needs to be available when someone is requesting it.
I don't want to use AWS, Azure, etc. cause of anti-capitalist and anti-surveillance reasons. I also don't want have the money to rent/buy storage space.
five days later, as the air quality index creeps toward 250, i'm no longer feeling so cutesy about this whole situation.
the more i read about climate change and ecological collapse, the more i'm drawn north and away from coasts. give me forests, give me fresh water.
review of paid email service I like Show more
So I've been using mailbox.org for 2 years now. It's not perfect, but it's so much better than gmail, I get good privacy, and I have a 'mailbox.org' email domain which is fun. It's also really affordable.
Would recommend if you are looking for a gmail alternative
It's difficult to criticize the failings of positive movements. Those on the right will appropriate your criticisms as a means by which to discredit the movement as a whole; while those on the left (made hypersensitive by the prolonged harassment of the right), might just write you off as a bad person and ignore everything you have to say.
This is obviously not great, and it's a double problem because this weakness of the Left is the greatest strength of reactionaries. They are fundamentally uncritical.
