Das Institut für Digitale Ethik an der Hochschule der Medien Stuttgart ist jetzt auch auf Mastodon. Wir freuen uns auf Diskussion und Austausch zum "Leben in vernetzten Welten".
Ad blocker: visually hides ads. Tracker scripts by ad companies still track you.
Tracker blocker (e.g., https://better.fyi): actually blocks trackers. Blocks ads as a side-effect as 99% of ads are trackers.
The former is like closing your eyes to make the wolf disappear.
btw, I decided to adopt the Peer Production License for my stuff https://civicwise.org/peer-production-licence-_-human-readable-summary/
✨ HOW TO HAVE A NICE TIME ON THE FEDIVERSE ✨
1. Don't be a downer in replies for no good reason.
2. No unsolicited advice.
3. If someone says something nice to you, boost a post of theirs that you like.
4. If someone is rude/unhelpful/a downer in your replies, block-unblock them to get them off your follower list (or just block them if they don't follow you).
5. Use hashtags sometimes, and when you do, click on them and boost the good stuff to federate it about.
Tantacrul posted a response to the criticism over the PR to add telemetry to Audacity:
SonoBus is an open source cross-platform application for streaming high-quality, low-latency peer-to-peer audio between devices over the internet or a local network
Connects multiple users together to send and receive audio among all in a group, with fine-grained control over latency, quality and overall mix. Includes optional input compression, noise gate, and EQ effects, along with a master reverb. All settings are dynamic, network statistics are clearly visible.
So this could be for a band or music practice, a meeting, etc without audio passing through any central server or reliant on any Internet service. Works as a standalone application on macOS, Windows, iOS, and GNU/Linux, and as an audio plugin (AU, VST, and AAX) on macOS and Windows. Use it on your desktop or in your DAW, or on your mobile device such as Android or iOS.
I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.
Just download Watomatic, set an auto-reply message which includes your Session ID, and you'll be easily contactable to all your WhatsApp contacts even after you delete WhatsApp.
