"Living the antifascist life involves putting your body in a place where it can actually stop fascism, and having done so, to hold a tiny piece of liberated space long enough for other people to find it, populate it and live. The radical defense of the human being starts with you."

-- Paul Mason
The conversation with Todd from Purism was completely unproductive in my mind. In his view, there are only two possible options for moderation:

• Become a complete censorship machine with a slippery slope of who can or cannot speak

• Go by the jurisdiction users are in, hiding content illegal in certain jurisdictions and then removing content illegal in the poster's jurisdiction, for example a Chinese user's dissent against the Chinese gov't would be removed.

There are two problems that I brought up that, being that:

• Purism would be participating in the injustices of those countries

• Legal but harmful content would still be allowed, thus spreading harm.

I felt completely ignored when trying to get this across to him, especially that last bit. I also tried explaining to him that a slippery slope does not exist when you have set principles that you stick to within rules, but that completely flew over his head. It also ended with him basically telling me to solve the problem with a solution that works for every country everywhere and then get back to him. So, the block & boycott of Purism continues.

Always wanted to create a Gtk Application using Python, build it using Meson, package it as a Flatpak and submit to Flathub?

We strive to make Firefox a great experience. Last weekend we failed, and we’re sorry.

More here, but one call out: if you enabled telemetry to get the initial fix, we’re deleting all data collected since May 4 to respect your choice as much as possible. tweeted by @Firefox

I'd love to form a co-op of marginalized folks that want to work in this FOSS space. We could push actual social change forward. I don't know where we'd start, though, or who our customers would be.

Oh hey, I should post this here too! I made a CSS-only async chat by using background-image requests to send data and long-running http requests to return it.

If any of you are in a position to hire a programmer for desktop software, @brainblasted's your guy, especially if you've got an open source project that needs some spit and polish

Well, I officially expressed to Purism that I no longer want to continue my contract work at Purism today. Now I need to figure out where to go from here.
