If you needed another reason to switch to Firefox: Enhanced Tracking Protection (keeping marketers from tracking you) is going to be the default for new downloads from now on.
If you already have Firefox and want to turn this on, go to the menu (three horizontal bars) -> Options -> Privacy and Security -> scroll down to Tracking Protection and set it to Always.
I love the idea of community-driven co-living spaces, so I thought this was an interesting article.
We could remove all advertising tomorrow and absolutely nothing in the world would be worse. It’s the most obvious ‘thing without a benefit to society’ ever.
Oh, and billboards - especially lcd but regular lit billboard too use SO MUCH ENERGY.
I mean damn we have a planet to save. Banning any form of electrical and illuminated advertising should be obvious.
tutorial: how to darn a hole Show more
Darning is a method of mending where you use thread to weave new “fabric” over the hole. Its usually used for smaller holes and is great for knits like a tshirt or a knitted sweater or socks.
You will need: a garment/blanket/whatever with a hole, a needle, yarn or embroidery floss, scissors. Optional: an embroidery hoop to keep your fabric stable.
if you have one of those fake chat thingies on your website that pops up and pretends to be a person who wants to chat with me I will instantly close the tab and not return, not exceptions
if your website is so incapable of answering questions I might have about your product that you to funnel me to a human operator you have failed
1. Advertising shits in your head, it is a form of visual and psychological pollution.
2. Removing/Replacing/Defacing advertising is not vandalism, it is an act of tidying up that is both legally and morally defensible.
3. The Visual Realm is a Public Realm, it is part of the commons, it belongs to everyone, so nobody should be able to own it.
4. Outdoor Advertising can and should be banned, Sao Paulo did it in 2006, Grenoble followed suit in 2015.
While the state of mobile apps for Mastodon has been good for quite some time now I’m happy to see some new desktop (web) apps.
Both support multiple accounts, both can be used with one or multiple columns and both are surprisingly mature and stable for being relatively new.
charity volunteers, open source, free book drops, holding the doors open for strangers, donations, repair cafes, art, ppl who rescue animals, hobby projects. like despite the absolute best efforts of the crushing system we live in, you literally cannot escape examples of people doing shit just because it makes them happy. critically think for once in your life
capitalist economic theory: no one gives anything away without asking for something in return, and anything offered for free will be exploited by selfish people trying to profit from it
the anarchist free store in my town: please, come take more of our free stuff, we have too much. we're running out of space from all of these donations and don't know what to do
Interesting article about how we have not been taught important skills such as sewing etc. and how it is affecting our academic and professional lives. I guess solarpunk are going to have a lot of technical advantages in the future.
Apparently, The North Face recently defaced Wikipedia as part of an advertising campaign, further proving that having brands on the web is totally fun and very good
It makes it abundantly clear that the public feedback they asked for on the change was nothing more than lip service to the extension developer community. I am ashamed to admit I fell for it, because the changes could have been rationalized at the time.
Now, it's abundantly clear that Google wants to exploit you, through Chrome.
Move to Firefox now. There is no better option, now that every other browser is Webkit or Blink based, or directly forked from Chromium.
Chrome's relationship with its userbase can now be considered "coercive", honestly. After all that feedback on the extension manifest, they chose the worst of the options for users, and the best option for Google.
Given gorhill's investigation of their SEC filing and what it reveals, I do not believe anyone should be using Chrome anymore. That doesn't really matter, because once ad-blockers end up hamstrung in a future release, that will just force everyone over to Firefox or Edgeium.
Sunbeam City is a Libertarian Socialist solarpunk instance. It is ran democratically by a cooperative of like-minded individuals.
