the Pixel 3 review from Buzzfeed that I shared from @rixx really is a pretty apt read and a good tech review, it ends with:

"This is a great phone. I highly recommend it. But it's no longer totally clear to me that the information systems we've built to help us navigate life are net beneficial to society. I mean, I think they are. But, Jesus. Jesus. What's happening to us?"

And that pretty much sums it all up, doesn't it?

Since I like history, I care about the @gnome project, and I love making people cringe with my voice, I started a podcast about the History of GNOME: bassi.io/category/history/podc

Cool comic by Ryan Estrada, one of my favorite comic artists, about the complexity of gender identity, identity in general and diversity.

Or maybe somebody could make an app with a button that makes it replay a recording of the phone number 🤔

Alternatively people could just stop being so annoying and save save the number from the call history instead :p

A cool feature for a mobile phone would be if it had some sort of laser on the bottom to project your phone number onto the table for people like me who are incapable of remembering it and need to read it out from somewhere when people ask for it.

every time you do something kind for a loved one or a stranger without expecting anything in return, you are rebelling against a rotten, anti-human order that wants you to view every element of your life as a ledger book. godspeed.

If anybody wants to see a very short, confusing and mumbling presentation of VkRunner, there’s one here :) youtube.com/watch?v=VRGseMUCQX

I think governments should run a publicly owned non-profit email service. It’s weird that you need an email address to do all sorts of governmental things like pay your taxes and so on, but the only providers are foreign commercial companies and they usually run on a business model of data-mining and advertising. And email is used for all sorts of important authentication. Why are we not worried about this?

Also, it’s interesting to think that the robots in The Matrix are way nicer to us than we humans are to our underlings. Why bother making a VR paradise for us when they could just cram us into cages and force us to stay alive in a living hell like we do to chickens in battery farming.

Film idea: The Matrix but instead of harvesting humans for energy our robot overlords confine us in pods so they can force us to look at adverts 24/7. They have long forgotten why they wanted us to see ads but it is such an ingrained part of their tradition and culture that they don’t want to change it.
