Putting the face of Alan Turing on your legal tender is probably one of the more subtle acts of Fnord nowadays.

I got the honor of merging this into #Tusky today \o/

We will not facilitate Gab on our app.

finally an Algorithm that's going to be even more racist than all the other existing ones

"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."

The straight pride flag transcends all satire, it might be the greatest self-own in a generation

nazis & hacker, rant 

The EFF warned that this would happen, and the W3C laughed them off. I'm still grumbling about EME.

Da verteidigtste die europäische Idee und die EU gegen hohlköpfige Nationalisten, und dann wirste von arroganten, ignoranten, von Lobbyisten beflüsterten EU-Machtpolitikern als bezahlter Demonstrant beschimpft, als Bot verhöhnt und bekommst zum Schluss auch noch eine saftige Ohrfeige verpasst.

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?

First they came for the white feminists,
and I did nothing,
Then they came for the TERFS,
And I did nothing,
Then they came for the Freeze Peaches,
And I did nothing,
Because fuck them.

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

@Kadda @holgi Zur Wochendämmung: "Nachrichten müssen mittlerweile auch unmittelbar einordnen" - ich musste da sofort an die CNN-Bauchbinden bei Trump-Ansprachen denken. Das ist zumindest ein Ansatz (wenn auch nur ein minimaler). Oder bin ich da auf der falschen Fährte?

@Hoaxmaster Ich seh aber keine übertriebene PC-Kultur in den USA seh ich aber nicht. Ich sehe da eher eine Outragemaschinerie, die davon profitiert, dass sowohl "X ist *istisch" als auch "Was für Snowflakes, die halten X für *istisch" sehr gutes Clickbait bieten.

@Hoaxmaster Hör gerade den Psychotalk vom Freitag nach. Fachlich kann ich dir nicht widersprechen, aber ich möchte mal drauf hinweisen, dass Gargron hier im Kontext von Mastodon Problematik von CWs im Diskurs IMO exzellent auf den Punkt gebracht hat: mastodon.social/@Gargron/10060

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.
