link: politics, informants, misogynists Show more
"The state has already understood a fact that the Left has struggled to accept: misogynists make great informants. Before or regardless of whether they are ever recruited by the state to disrupt a movement or destabilize an organization, they’ve likely become well versed in practices of disruptive behavior. They require almost no training and can start the work immediately."
just finished new faculty orientation at hampshire and it was kinda great?
I ought to say some things about json-ld, because I think a lot of people aren't familiar with the details of it.
- You can play with json-ld live here: https://json-ld.org/playground/
- JSON-LD lets you have extensions but map them to local "compacted" shorthands, while still allowing to expand out into unambiguous form.
- JSON-LD does allow converting to a RDF graph, but it's not required. (It is interesting, though.)

Can I emphasize one more time how cool Blokada is?
You don't know it but your phone is *full* of trackers. It's not better than the web. I thought that we don't have any tools to deal with it - after all, it's not a browser. But turns out there are!
Blokada works as a VPN but locally. It has a blacklist (which you can change) and it just blocks all connections to trackers or ads. It works wonderfully.
Of course Google wouldn't let it in the Play Store.
In the 90s-era demo scene, rendering a 3D object was called "vector" and rendering a 3D object made of translucent polygons was called "glenz vector." I never thought to wonder what "glenz" meant until recently. It turns out to derive from "gläns," Swedish for "glitter"!
there are some seriously nice people in the free software world
hi i'm a friendly former mastodev; Western MA Sanctuary activist; hobby poet; queer shitposting furry; jack of all trades creative-type; and grad student studying Library & Information Science. Most notable thing I've made is http://sailingroughwaters.com which is a website about coping skills for the mental stress of dealing with daily racism/sexism/homophobia/ableism etc. with a focus on being accessible in all senses of the word.

Funny bug story:
Eons ago I had to write a windows application (for work) instead of the usual embedded stuff. I believe I was also learning C++. I'm sitting at my desk, running my program (which is supposed to talk via the serial port) over and over, when an irate coworker comes in with reams of paper printed in gibberish from the network printer yelling "are these yours???!!!"
Turns out I was sending my commands over the network instead...

A good friend of mine was like, "do you know anyone in MA? fairly urgent stuff around imminent legal work around immigrant rights"
I think most of the MA folks I know are on the fediverse, so here you go:
