Thanks for the retoots but we have found enough people for now, might be back in the future though! :) And if anyone wants to try ssb or give a hand in developing it you can just write to me

To get "hired" I'd suggest you make a post on ssb saying something like "Hi I'm W and I have experience X. I'd like to work on Y for Z hours", where Z is something like 30-50 hours.

Payment would be through one of our opencollectives, e.g. opencollective.com/patchwork , which supports at least paypal. Work would be for a specific amount of hours (and prob 30usd/h).

anyone know what the habituation rate for caffeine is? that is, what's a stable dose+cadence of e.g. coffee one can intake w/o requiring ever-increasing doses for the same effect?

I can't in good conscience recommend Apple devices to people anymore. I used to believe that Apple was the more private company (as compared to Google), they just had a lot of proprietary stuff. But they're not even using TLS when they track every application you open!

People need to ditch Apple, but I don't see that happening any time soon. Surveillance grows...

an important report has just been published by my friend emmi: The Decentralized Web of Hate

"Fascists (and other bad actors) are [...] hosting manifestos resiliently, raising money anonymously, communicating securely to organize attacks, sharing weapons plans, and networking to build out their numbers."

"We cannot abandon p2p technology but we also can't ignore the risks. The only way out is through."

zapatistas under pressure, solidarity request 

> On August 22, 2020, the ORCAO paramilitary organization looted and burned two Zapatista coffee warehouses in Cuxuljá, Chiapas. This is the latest in an accelerating series of attacks on the Zapatista project since the current administration of Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) took office.

> Many of you will remember that in 2017 as Trump took office, the Zapatistas sent four tons of their coffee harvest to migrant and other communities in struggle in the United States as an organizing resource. Now we need to organize our own coffee solidarity effort — not only to help recover the cost of the lost harvest, but to show there is widespread solidarity with the Zapatista project.

Would anyone be interested in some paid work on the Sculttlebutt clients Patchwork and Oasis?

UX and front end focussed. Occasional interaction with stuff further down the stack.

You've probably heard Zuboff's excellent coinage "Surveillance Capitalism" and perhaps you've read the paper it was introduced in, or the book that it led to.

Today, I've published a response to that book, "How to Destroy Surveillance Capitalism."
