It just occurred to me that there is no such thing as #SurveillanceCapitalism, it's just #Capitalism doing what it's always done in different ways. I mean you can look at it as People Farming on the one hand. On the other, it's just companies like #Google and #Facebook getting free labor from us to create a product for Advertisers. As if this was the first time Capitalists have exploited people for their voluntary labor under false pretences. *cough* #MLMs *cough*

How about a Funkwhale for ebooks? Is repurposing Funkwhale a viable project you think? Ebooks are media too. πŸ€”@eliotberriot

LOCAL BEE DECIDES TO TAKE SAVING THE PLANET INTO HIS OWN HANDS

Software is perhaps the ultimate heterogeneous technology. It exists simultaneously as an idea, language, technology, and practice.

I did not choose techno-skepticism, techno-skepticism chose me.

USER AGENT: Hey website, please don't track me

WEBSITE: Aha, you are one of the 0.5% of users who request not to be tracked. This is an excellent way to track you

@mattcropp I'm curious, do you spend your time in coops or "meta coops"? I'm looking into synergizing local coops in my area while founding one of my own.

What are some interesting worker owned projects?

I'll be at #FOSDEM. I'm interested in go-fed (AP in #golang) and getting folks writing #ActivityPub extensions into decentralized but federating spec-owning authorities. Who wants to meet up at FOSDEM? I would like to make sure to block out specific times to meet with folks to have these sorts of discussions.

Doesn't have to be 1:1 discussions either.

It seems that a lot of yesterdays Linux rebels are struggling with the realization that their lifelong uphill battle is won and their principles fully adopted by Capital. Open source is the preferred mode of production for the big boys in tech. There’s no inherent freedom being produced.

Is there an open source iOS Mastodon client with the user experience quality of Tootdon? For example, Amaroq is _not_ cutting it.
