They will ask you to lie, it's only a little lie...surely no big deal.
But that little lie, is the first tiny drop of an ocean of sorrow to come.

If Biden gets the nomination I'll take it as proof that lizard people actually rule the earth.


And on a related note, I think that the extent to which college is promoted as a path out of poverty to low-income people is criminal. The country has become far more educated in the past couple decades, but real wages haven't gone up since my parents were children. We just managed to convince people to pay for a degree that in many fields is nothing more than something to have on your resume as you apply to the same minimum-wage jobs you had before you started.

Fun fact: I'm making less now than I did working at the mall as a teen.

Anyone who says that a system built on suffering must continue because they also suffered and turned out fine did not, in fact, "turn out fine".

I think the fediverse represents a reclamation of the internet by the people on it, away from the coroproations which try to steal it. We can have a second golden age.

Don't be afraid to get weird with it. Let's get even weirder. And let's do it on _our_ platforms. The internet belongs to us.

Yes, it will be tremendously expensive to apply heavy trade sactions to China. But it was also tremendously expensive to liberate the slaves from the US south. Money never excuses moral failure.

i miss the 90's

@dankwraith @DissidentKitty Broadness used to be a central tenet of advertising. They are ignoring centuries of textbook common sense with micro targeting and they know it but they don’t have shiny Google blessed numbers to speak it.

Brains are the last frontier of privacy

What's happening: Machines that read brain activity from outside the head, or in some cases even inside the skull, are still relatively limited in the data they can extract from wearers' brains, and how accurately they can interpret it.

But the tech is moving fast. We can now recognize basic emotional states, unspoken words and imagined movements — all by analyzing neural data.


Apparently I am slightly above average at spotting privacy friendliness. 😁
