when ted cruz wastes committee time by asking about planned parenthood facebook pages...


I felt bad for him for a second, then considered what facebook does to all of us and no longer felt sorry.

the fact that your mother / daughter / aunt / sister / grandmother is female doesn't really prevent you from making incredibly sexist comments.

I don't mind paying taxes.

I mind that I have to /do/ taxes because a bunch of companies lobbied to ban the IRS and financial institutions from just collating the data they already had on me and crunching the numbers.

Decentralize your world.

There is of course #mastodon as federated social media.

There is good old #email as federated postbox (as long as not everyone uses GMail).

There is #peertube as a federated video platform.

There is #Riot / Matrix.org as federated group messaging.

There is #XMPP for federated 1on1 messaging.

And there is #nextcloud as federated cloud storage.

In theory most services are already federated. We only miss more users :)

#federation #selfhosted #privacy
