if your cat often bothers you at your computer and walks all over your keyboard, it's because they're trying to join you and do what you're doing. It's a sign of affection! One way to mitigate disruption without pushing away your cat is by buying your cat their own laptop and plugging it in next to yours. make sure the laptop has wifi, a VPN, and access to the darkweb

Involuntary biometric #surveillance in public spaces is an outrageous humiliation and a severe attempt to restrict personal freedom with hardly any benefits to general security ...

Please consider signing and promoting the @reclaimyourface European citizens initiative. (If enough EU citizens sign such initiatives, eu comission has to put this on their agenda!)

The fediverse is actually ultimately more good than bad. It's getting bigger, and weirder, and more complicated, but it's still the space I've always loved.

To my friends on this weird journey, I love you, and I'm glad you're here.

As much as I can understand the resentment towards Rush Limbaugh, and honestly I do! I'd like to say to those who are actually going to the extent of celebrating his death, I hope you take a moment to think of your water intake while you're partying. It's good to stay hydrated.

Learned about JMAP today, whose website frustratingly doesn't answer the question on whether it was named because J comes after I in the alphabet and it is a potential successor to IMAP.

Please remember: functional cookies (login session, shopping carts) do not need user consent. So every time you see one of this oversized cookie banners someone is trying (often through dark patterns) to make you accept the whole tracking and spying as well. Don't be mad at the legislative for creating the need for tracking consent. Be mad at the websites that are trying to stir you up against that law by annoying you with those banners.

Great to see the OpenTTD folks going to Steam to let more people enjoy their work. Hope to see more Open Source projects meeting people where they are instead of only using traditional open source distribution methods.
