I wrote a small concept, feedback and criticism would help me a lot!
It is a #cyberpunk MMORPG about transforming capitalism to a solidarity economy...
despair increases with latitude
dutch: why have one vowel when you could have two or three! language is fun!
danish: why even bother pronuncing the sounds in the word, we're all gonna die one day
swedish: we added some open vowels in an attempt to combat chronic seasonal affective disorder
norwegian: a language for every village because we don't talk to strangers
finnish: it's dark, it's cold, why talk?
I was wrong about Google and Facebook: there’s nothing wrong with them (so say we all)
It’s always difficult admitting you’re wrong. But sometimes you have to in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. So, today, I admit that I was wrong about Google, Facebook, & surveillance capitalism in general being toxic for our human rights and democracy … it simply cannot be true given how they are endorsed by some of the most well-respected organisations in the world.
Like Deus Ex there will be lethal, non-lethal, hacking, stealth, and other solutions to challenges. However Terminus Cyberstar will also have solutions to objectives that are collectivist, involve worker-agitation, protest, employee strike, mass-quitting capitalism and cooperatization, require encouraging / participating in a mass of people peacefully resisting in solidarity.
As opposed to a singular cool Jason Bourne dude with augmented legs and nano-nightvision saving everyone messianically.
To hell with algorithms.
I don't want algorithms.
They are anti-stories.
I want imagination
Rooted in fact.
That's the story I need.
My hero in this regard is @Gargron. He built a huge community and revitalized the fediverse at a crucial time and I don't think he gets the credit he deserves.
He is very open to feedback and despite some criticism, has moved the fediverse forward in the best interest of the users and not some VC funded company.

Maintenance of large software projects, mastodon Show more
Wow, there are so many open issues for Mastodon on github. And so many are super valid.
Hard to imagine managing (or even contributing substantially) to a project so large. Any open source devs have insights about issue management, triage, division of responsibility, etc when there's such an overwhelming amount of engagement / requests?
Thanks to all the fediverse maintainers and admins and mods! This shit is clearly a ton of work
Und wieder eine Hausdurchsuchung/Beschlagnahmung bei einem "Zeugen". Darum sollte jede/r diesen #35C3 Talk kennen: https://media.ccc.de/v/35c3-10018-verhalten_bei_hausdurchsuchungen
Es ist sowieso ein großes Rätsel, wie es #Telegram je geschafft hat, als "sicher" zu gelten und so populär zu werden. Seit Mitte 2016 ist bekannt, dass sich das BKA nachweislich in Chats einklinken und mitlesen kann - reicht das nicht?

I really hope I don't become one of those grumpy ppl who start their bio with "I hate..."
I can understand you folks, but having this as a default mood is pretty toxic I suppose
I'm in a revolution mood... Maybe it's the monday, or the #adm eviction... But if today some capitalism would be overthrown, I wouldn't mind
