Netflix now "personalises" artwork based on individuals' data:

This is hypertargeted advertising: different people see different info about same film, most get misled about its nature.

Same thing is now happening with political advertising:

Same candidates, but different individuals see totally different information about them. Most get misled about candidate's nature.

With a film you can stop watching when you find out truth, but after an election it's too late.

I'm giving a talk about documentation later on this week, and I want to cite some examples beyond my personal favorites. So, open floor: what FOSS projects would you say do a really good job of documenting (1) tutorial-style material, (2) troubleshooting/diagnosing errors, (3) how to port from another (competing?) platform? Or just in general, if none of those prompt a strong reaction?

We've just released 1.1.5 with icons for @inkscape, @matrix, @pixelfed, and 10 others.

Wishing a happy launch day to on 17th.

@imathew not sure if you were into instagram or not, but have you seen pixelfed.social yet?

You walk into the dark alley periodically looking back to see nothing but a dense fog. You meet your informant, shaking as they ask, "Is it safe to speak?" You announce in your best non-regional dialect, "Hey Google, Alexa, Cortana, Siri" and wait for a beep; "Good. We're alone."

Been having a play with @pixelfed the last few days: pixelfed.social/jerrykan

Seems like a very promising project.
