I've been trying (not too hard) to learn Emacs, it's not something I really need to learn right away. I just got curious with all that vs war.

I think that what I'm really looking for is (mainly) portability, being able to sit in front of a computer running any OS and get my work done in a familiar and customizable environment.

I'm actually quite tired of all this lack of interoperability and the inconvenience that comes with it if you're not inside a specific ecosystem.

We pay to Steam, Netflix, Amazon prime, Spotify. But not to Wikipedia, Archive.org, Librivox, Project Gutenberg, for our favourite Linux distro.

The huge asymmetry between corporate and community has not emerged naturally. It is a product of our choices of not supporting community oriented projects.

The short conveniences vs the long-term good. We always chose the former.

In face of surveillance capitalism, we must and must change.

I'm actually starting to find it weird when people don't have an RSS feed for their site.

In August, @peertube entered a new stage in the development of v3. The objective is to raise €60k so they can implement, (1) global search, (2) moderation, (3) plugins & playlists, and (4) live streaming, here's the roadmap: joinpeertube.org/roadmap/.

They already raised €37k which covers steps (1) and (2) and we're almost there for step (3) which is €40k.

I don't understand what people plan to achieve when they use a professional network such as to complain about a specific company with a public post.

Just found out about @e_mydata. It's so good to see more and more privacy-friendly projects being released in response to surveillance capitalism.

I'm planning a phone upgrade for next year, they just made the top of my list.

So, main instance will be shut down next September 1st omar.yt/posts/stepping-away-fr its lead developer is stepping away from the project.

I hope the remaining contributors are able to keep the project alive.

In my ideal world, my phone is just a web browser and the app store is just a search engine that lists PWAs. Lots of paths that could have gotten us there (FirefoxOS, WebOS), none taken.

Let's not forget that #facebook was a platform originally created to track and exploit the women who went to Zuckerburg's college. If you are on #facebook, I don't think you need any additional motivation to get off of it. #deletefacebook

Remember, if a project is not free (as freedom) then you pay for it with your data, and not only to "keep the service free" - your data brings them a huge profit.

Protip: if you want to host Gitea or any other self-hosted versioning webapp at home, use fail2ban and robots.txt to block all scrapers.

It will wreak havoc on your home network if you don't have proper networking equipment.

In just a few hours I have over 5000 IPs banned. And requests are *still* coming in from the same/similar user agents.

Se conhecerem alguém que está sem convênio e tiver com algum sintoma da COVID-19 (tosse, febre, falta de ar, dor de garganta), orientem para entrar na plataforma do Missão Covid: missaocovid.com.br . É uma plataforma que conecta pacientes com um grupo de médicos que se reuniu para atender gratuitamente as pessoas com os sintomas. A pessoa se cadastra e rapidamente um médico entra em contato e faz uma vídeo consulta. Atendimento gratuito.

Surveillance capitalism is the same as climate change, but for data:

- Some people have been warning about its consequences for years
- Most people don't care because they don't feel concerned, they can't see it affecting them
- A few companies are making a lot of damage with the help of governments
- When we will face the consequences it will be too late
- We can still do something about it, and the sooner the better

OK, now it's official. My account has been officially deactivated! Thanks to Bibliogram's unblocker script which helped me a lot with following people's updates via feed without the annoying 503 error. I'm probably gonna keep my account as a gesture of compromise, too many friends and family members that use it and do not use any alternatives at all. Nevertheless, I'm still making myself available on privacy-respecting tools like Matrix, XMPP/Jabber and Briar.
