Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.

#DeleteChrome

When someone on twitter writes "CW: dead body" and thinks that's somehow going to not make you see the huge attached image

Me: abolish the police

Others: But they solve CRIMES

Me: umm folks, I hate to break this to you but umm... bbc.com/news/uk-49986849

“PSA: if you or someone nearby are being brutalized by a police Spot robot and can get a hand or something underneath, grab this handle and yank it forward. This releases the battery, instantly disabling the robot.

Keep your hands away from joints, Spot WILL crush your fingers.”

I spent parts of January working on a new kind of search engine. Instead of indexing the unfathomable internet, it focuses on enabling search for neighbourhoods of related websites—webrings, or other kinds of topically similar sites.

The search engine is called Lieu.
Try it out: lieu.cblgh.org
See the code: github.com/cblgh/lieu

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...

Yesterday we joined with indigenous Sami activists to block roads and occupy @sveaskog@twitter.com office in Stockholm as part of our November Rebellion. We demand #ClimateJustice and that the Swe government ratifies the Indigenous and Tribal Peoples Convention C169

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."
