It's not easy to find and follow people who write about things I'm interested in Mastodon. I would be very grateful If you can get me some recommendations who to follow 🙏

I like posts about:

®️ #IntellectualProperty: #copyright, #copyleft, #trademarks, #patent law, etc.

🎨 #ArtHistory

🎸 #PunkRock, #Grunge, any good #music

⚖️ #Constitucional law, #HumanRights

👥 #Sociology

and any other things you guess I would be interested :)

(Boosts are appreciated 🍀)

For the first time in ages, I can say that was an excellent working week 🙂

Just had a smashing time with a glass dish. Shaking a tiny fist at whoever put a jar of peanut butter *sideways* in one of our cupboards 🤦‍♂️

This was shared by the Director of IT & Infrastructure at Brave Software. Not sure of the original provenance.

Happy to see it would currently take 193 trillion years to crack the unique passwords I generate to login in various places.

Not sure how quickly quantum computing will change all this, though? 🤔

While I'm still using Firefox...

I use Pop!_OS and saw really high CPU spikes with Firefox. Changing the web render setting using about:config as shown in this article has helped a bit:


It's a shame about the grey sky, but this tree (an oak, I think?) caught my attention during my run this morning!

I think I've used Firefox for about 17 years. Most of the time it's been my main and default browser. During that time, I worked for the Mozilla Foundation for 3 years.

So, given the recent news, it really pains me to even think about switching to Chromium. But, miracles aside, I can't see how Firefox as a browser is going to survive in 2021 with its current market share and resourcing levels 😔

Today's involved interesting work!

AM: Putting together a survey instrument and framework around digital readiness for delivering online programmes

PM: Adding finishing touches to new We Are Open Co-op email course entitled 'What We Talk About When We Talk About Open'

Images in the course were all created by the fabulously talented Bryan Mathers, with my co-writer for the course being the wonderful @epilepticrabbit. Both are currently on holiday.

Thank you!

I don't know how UK police forces can even *consider* continuing to use automatic facial recognition on the population when the error rate for women of colour is up to 35%

Pretty sure if the error rate was that high for white men there wouldn't even be a question of it being used so widely.


FML I'm going to have to reactivate my Twitter account just to login to Medium and Bitly 🤦‍♂️

250 of us have been laid off from Mozilla this morning.

If you have openings or can offer assistance, please use the #MozillaLifeboat tag!
