is a family owned business that I trust. I'm happier to have my Flickr in their hands than Oath/Verizon's. I'm happy to reach out to the fantastic SmugMug folks I know for more info if people want.

"The state has endeavored to turn ungovernable wetlands into taxable grain fields by reengineering the landscape." James C. Scott's Against The Grain gives me a new understanding of "drain the swamp".

Regarding Facebook tracking non-users Mark Zuckerberg said "This kind of data collection is fundamental to how the internet works."

I'm not a networking expert but I know enough to be able to confidently say that nothing at all about this data collection is fundamental to how the Internet works. I guess he was using Silicon Valley speak where "the internet" means "huge corporations who make most of their money by selling ads and illegally collecting as much data as possible".

@dtluna how you get the food is, who gives you it, how it is grown, who does the labour, who you share it with, who you eat it with. This is all politics.

Actually, Barbara Bush was an amazing racist who, along with her racist and imperialist husband, raised a war criminal and several other prominent racists.

Just saw a "free software" manifesto that actually says that "software should be written for programmers", and... how can anyone be this dense? If software is only usable by a small percentage of people with highly specialized technical skills, it's not really free, is it? You're just replacing one gatekeeper with another.

Instead of software being controlled by capitalistic monopolists, you're advocating it be controlled by a small technocratic elite. That's not better!!!

whats up with when in movies they're using a landline phone and they get hanged up on and they go "hello? hello???" like cmon can you not hear the hangup tone
