Today in the adventures of 'no one but me reads my documentation', there are random lines of bad church latin invoking the protection of the machine spirit in our disaster recovery plan.
"Omnissiah defensionem calculandum apparatus. Chao superare potest. Custodiat te nostrae tergum consilium."

Using the modern web doesn't feel empowering. It feels immensely frustrating.
The web is barely usable without ad-blocking. Pages take an age to load and the content jumps around as more ads download and display. Also the ads are spying on you.

RT @email@example.com: LRT: It's important to understand that people calling the Proud Boys "brownshirts" aren't being hyperbolic but making an actual historical parallel. The Proud Boys commit violence, the right blames the left for this, thus "necessitating" the readiness for future violence.

@resist_berlin "WE have tools available that were considered ridiculously radical only a generation ago. Why are we using them so sheepishly?"
Damn is that ever a rallying cry.
Fight for the users, and all that.
To all of you who have called, and those who wrote an e-mail, and those that support #SaveYourInternet in all different ways, from very vocal to very silent -- thank you.
You guys are amazing. You are taking part in a political and historical process.
This is an old one, but a golden one. And it applies to 2010, 2012, and now just as well.
