Christmas through the harsh lens of reality:

FOSS/FLOSS cannot truly exist without UBI or another avenue to fulfill basic needs. Otherwise it will forever be something made by the privileged for the privileged.

I hate all the horseshit that's in every YouTube video now.

I'm sure there's some statistic somewhere that says it's Good To Do, but "don't forget to like and subscribe and be sure to punch the nose off that bell icon" doesn't need to be half the damn video.

It doesn't even need to be IN the video!

I tolerate a lot of things but one thing I don't tolerate is white nationalism sorry lads

if you just use linux to feel smarter than other people throw your fucking computer out the window

I feel like we still haven't hit the peak of survival gaming yet.

Most survival games are centered around the individual experience of a dude, usually a white guy, arming himself to the teeth and progress is measured by how easily they can kill.

I'd like a game that has a more holistic and community context. Yes, defending yourself is important, but so is housing, a power grid, water, schools, manufacturing etc. You know, community building.

I don't know of a game that goes that far with it.

not only should you be captioning/describing your images

you should be requesting #MastoDev team improves upon it such as allowing us to see the whole image as we describe it, and a better visual indicator that the image isn’t described while uploading (maybe even an alert before posting!)

fight to make the fediverse more accessible

Anybody has some experience with deploying ?

I'm looking at their docs and they seem to have various methods: npm, docker, …

Which did you follow, and how is it working for you? How much work is it to maintain it in the long run? (upgrades, etc…)

Donc maintenant les témoins de Jéhovah ils ne viennent plus sonner à la porte, ils envoient un courier manuscrit et adressé nominativement. 🙄

Le modèle économique de Slack est basée sur la technique du dealer et la séquestration. La première dose est gratuite, et ensuite t'en veux encore. La seconde et la troisième aussi. Mais une fois accroché, avec l'usage, on dépasse vite la limite accessible gratuitement de l'historique. Pour récupérer la mémoire collective ensuite enfermé dans le système, là, il faut payer.

Your daily reminder that surveillance capitalism touches everything.

The generated book has Google tracking because the Rust mdbook tool comes with Google surveillance by default.

Weigh in on this issues if you care about changing that:

Since we didn't get very many women, enbies, or people of color to submit talks, the folks choosing talks for the Decentralisation & Internet Privacy track at FOSSDEM 19 decided that we'd like to ask of you:

If you submitted a talk, go ask an underrepresented minority friend/acquaintance of yours if they'd like to give the talk with you/in your stead.

CC @fosdem, can we get a little boost 💜?

I am a #foss / #free #software radical.

This is because I understand some things that many people do not, or do not want to. This isn’t because those people are stupid or purpousely ignorant; rather, my circumstances forced me to part with some of the comforts of predatory software, and it opened my eyes to the world that universal software freedom could create.

Coucou les meufs de mastodon en région parisienne ! @alice et moi on propose de coacher 4 meufs pour apprendre python et la sécurité informatique (on alternerait l'un et l'autre pour que ça décante) ! Les modalités sont à définir avec les participantes (dates/lieux/qui fait quel gâteau).
Boost immensément appréciés !

Went to download subtitles for Black Panther and of course this racist fuck had to leave a comment about how the movie is rubbish because Africans never had this kind of civilisation… 😡

If I’ve made the world better for even one marginalized person who made their life better through involvement with tech, it’s all worth it.

Tech has the potential to transform lives, and I want that potential to be accessible to as many people as possible.

That’s why I do this.
