"Next time work makes you feel less than human, should you gently speak truth to power, or should you use mindfulness to self-regulate & maintain function in an oppressive system? Should you choose to self-regulate, are you tacitly thanking the oppressive system for giving you the tools of self-regulation to begin with? Furthermore, how much of this experience—this process of spelunking into my mind—should be comfortable and brightly colored? How much should feel good?" theringer.com/tech/2018/10/25/

"Associate Director, Educational Development " Our unit has tried for 6 months to fill this position with a candidate from out of country. Please tell me there is someone local willing to apply for this.

"I don't believe our species can survive unless we fix this (social media). We can not have a society, in which, if two people wish to communicate, the only way that can happen is, if it's financed by a third person who wishes to manipulate them."

@HerraBRE Correction. MUA . My apologies - it was clearly too late at night for me to be writing a technical post :)

@HerraBRE ‪I’m confused about mailpile. Since it’s an MTA, you’re going to have to point it at an IMAP/POP server. Unless you ‬and your correspondents encrypt zealously, whoever controls that server can snoop. It’s best to store your mail on the device running mailpile. If you don’t have a laptop that strategy restricts your access to your mail. I guess I’m having trouble thinking through the use case. I’m not even sure this rambling makes much sense.

I have a new appreciation for Mastodon content warnings.

Apple: we believe privacy is a human right.

Also Apple: here’s your trust score.


@dajbelshaw I was reading some of your old blog posts. How did the hubzilla experiment work out?

Blog Post "Aggregating the Decentralized Social Web" blog.jasongreen.net/b/9N @gargon

how to explain federation in one sentence: "it makes many websites work like one website." there, simple, done. now you can focus on explaining why people want to use mastodon / what will make them feel at home / guiding to a preferred webspace beyond practical security concerns

@dajbelshaw@social.coop Have you tried ZeroMail yet?

My semi-regular inquiry: Do any of my followers use SSB/Patchwork or Twister?
