Cognitive often doesn’t get a lot of discussion; however it’s in some ways the broadest category we need to consider! This is a great summary of various cognitive considerations such as language, cognitive load, layout and testing! ux.shopify.com/designing-for-c

"So much of the narrative discussion is existing frames (“Putin’s attacking us!”) which ignores, for me, the bigger concern — teenagers with rock launchers and no curfew are attacking society, and are laying the foundation for something schools, hospitals and such simply aren’t in a place to be able to defend against. We need to do something — lots of things — kinda now."

Privacy and security shouldn’t be a privilege only available to the technical elite.

Help - don't let any more reveal Mark Zuckerberg's private data!

Thank you 🙏

I watched a 30 min clip of Rand Paul talking about wasteful spending.

The thing I thought of was, all of these silly projects that the govt is funding sound like cool projects for an open source community to study. Pretty much every study that was using $XXX millions was something that most of my friends in open source could easily accomplish on a few thousand and they would get it done in a matter of days instead of years.

Just think how the Open Source model could improve your society.

We can imagine the end of life, but it’s impossible to imagine to raise taxes on billionaires by 5%.

We can alter physical reality just by our thoughts, but we cannot equalize real material standards of living by just a few percent.

This new thing where every single store on the web is trying to be a subscription service can eat a dog's ass. I hate it. "Are you sure you don't want a monthly delivery of a product it takes you 9-15 months to use up?!"

maybe you will too?

You'd like to use a modern chat application, while being under the full protection #Tails has to offer? (amnesia, anonymous, censorship resistant, encryption)

You might enjoy @dino then, one of Tails candidates to replace pidgin.
No phone number, anonymous, censorship resistant, e2e encrypted, decentralized/federated, easy to use, based on #xmpp.

With Tails "additional software" function you don't need to wait. Here's how to install it yourselve:

Today Denmark announced their corona passport app "Coronapas".

Of course, it's not open source, because that's too hard for the Danish government to do. In addition it's done by the absolutely inept Netcompany that made the infection tracing app, Smittestop.

That same app has a Norwegian version, of which is open source. The Danish version is not open source, despite being made by the same company and shares basically the same code base, not that the latter should matter.

It's beyond ridiculous that the public should put up with tax money going to private actors that don't even give the code to the people, aka. the proper owner of the code.

The ministers responsible for such conduct in any country should be forced to leave their posts and publicly apologise. They deserve to lose face.

Public funds = Public ownership

@namtari It's so sad, because in Sweden we have this agency called Arvsfonden. Their primary purpose is to give money to new innovation projects, but of course none of them end up being open source.

The company I work for once wanted to do an open source project, with public funding, and it was an uphill battle making boomers understand that open-source isn't evil... We were almost denied, but in the end they finally agreed to it. Was very depressing.

When the iPhone launched, all the cool apps were on the desktop, and you had to live with shitty web apps on your mobile.

Nowadays all the cool apps are on the mobiles, and you get shitty web apps for the desktop.
