πŸ‘† I just started to think about link sharing with or . I honestly don't get the security concept behind it.

When sharing folder via link, how do I make sure that nobody grabs my data by just guessing the link?

Is it just because the links are rather complex? (PW protection is only available for Dropbox Premium)

@hinterwaeldler To be fair, LinkedIn premium is also shitty. So it is not a paywall, it is a crapwall

πŸ‘† We need an open-source federated *professional* social network. πŸ‘

I added some people on after attending a recruiting event yesterday.

LinkedIn is shit. It's full of ads, basic functions are reserved for premium, it's slow and I dont want to control my professional network.

After discovering , LinkedIn is unbearable. πŸ‘Ž

πŸ‘† It's weird to find in print media. It's even weirder that it's not an advertisement for their company, but rather a targeted effort to improve their public image.

Today for free in German newspapers: A small magazine (~20 pages) by Google, praising their charity efforts.

What a time to be alive.

Mainboard and keyboard embedded in concrete...

May 31 is the target launch of the beta!

That will give me enough time to finish essential features and test federation with mastodon and pleroma.

Our memories are unreliable and often flat-out wrong, especially when it comes to remembering how we felt at a certain time or place. Our ability to predict our thoughts and feelings in the future is even worse.

For instance, look at this puppy.

You probably felt good looking at that. Now does that feeling mean anything? Fuck no, it’s just a puppy.

We all think we know how we’re using our time. But we’re usually wrong. We think we work more than we do (studies show most people top out somewhere around three hours of actual work per day, the rest is just fucking around).

I enjoyed this article about self-awareness and afterwards understood that it's authored by Mark Manson whose book "The subtle art of not giving a fuck" is already on my reading list.

Best parts as answer-toots:

These people post great stuff about tech and reading their toots often teaches me a new thing / perspective (thanks!):

@ajroach42 Retro stuff, DIY, blogposts πŸ’Ύ

@seanl Mostly rants that I deeply enjoy πŸ‘

@nolan Web development and the Pinafore Mastodon client πŸ“±

TV news are also too often based on tweets. Even news about US politics. πŸ˜‰ It makes it hard to take them seriously. It seems to have become the platform for press releases and I don't like it.
