Folks, for years: We have a problem called Surveillance Capitalism, it’s a systemic problem arising from socio-economic factors…
Ex-Googler: Hmm, this problem, very exotic… what shall I call it without criticising either surveillance or capitalism? Time well spent?
Folks: SURVEILLANCE CAPITALISM! It’s the feedback loop between accumulation of information (surveillance) and accumulation of wealth (capitalism)
Ex-Googler: …human downgrading?

Hello everyone !
📢 🔴 URGENT 🔴
An awesome software is dying, because its #developper has not time anymore to care of it.
It's an alternative of Adobe AfterEffect : Natron (https://natrongithub.github.io/)
Please, can Mastodon community search for a C++ dev, which want to maintain it ? or search for a company which work with free software ? It's very important.

Have you ever made a symbolic icon for a GNOME app and wanted to test if it recolors correctly?
If you open a 16x16px SVG in Icon Preview, it shows the icon in a number of realistic situations. It even auto-reloads if you change the file.
Get the app on Flathub https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.gnome.IconPreview

How Can You Decide Which VPN To Trust? https://m.slashdot.org/story/352758A January investigation by the site Top10VPN found that more than half of the top 20 free VPN apps on the iOS and Android app stores either have Chinese ownership or are based in China. That's all the more suspicious given that China officially banned VPNs last year. The concern: If China is allowing them to continue operating, it could be because they're sharing data on their users with the Chinese government.
Still trying to figure out what I should be using Mastodon for...
