and why were we so naive and stupid to believe silly marketing slogans like "don't be evil" and while we had ALL the privileges of an insanely great job market (for us) we didn't make use of our power and not at least left companies where nobody should start working to begin with

so, basically the first generation of internet/linux/web devs are kind of the boomers of the tech we have now. we are going to be asked soon where we've put everybody's privacy & civil liberty & why on earth we've put our intelligence into those large destructive companies. 1/2

Rechte Gruppen: Du bist weiß, männlich und voller Hass? Kannst bei uns mitmachen!

"A Google employee spoke with the Bay Area Reporter on the condition of anonymity about the current mood among LGBTQ Googlers, saying by phone that, "I'm really worried that they [company leadership] don't know how unsustainable this is. They want to have it both ways: to monetize the engagement that comes from really odious content, but to bear no responsibility for it. And all of us queers who work here see how they're getting away with making money off people who hate us while doing nothing to stop them. Meanwhile, most queer creators' channels are demonetized or marked 'adult' because they use words like 'trans.' Google has no right to be at Pride. They're just capitalists. They don't care."

Nein, es ist derzeit nicht leicht, an die Demokratie in der EU zu glauben.

Oh, Netflix hat den Ducktales-Film... ich nostalgier dann mal los.

OK, Pocket Casts hat mit dem neuen Update jetzt auch auf Android die UI ruiniert. Gibt es mittlerweile gute Alternativen, die auf allen gängigen Plattformen verfügbar sind und Feeds/Hörstatus syncen?

Hi, this is a small reminder that you can't and don't need to fight all systemic injustices, inequalities and issues on the same day. You are allowed to rest, you can't turn your life into a 24/7 battle field. So don't forget to take car of yourselves <3
