Googlefacebookamazon will always pay better than the rest. And while many people talk a lot about meaningful work and ethics in the end it's very often about cash.
The problem is that the level of pay that the big tech giants generate is really hard to pull off when you are working based on more sustainable business models.
One reason we need more competition in tech is so that employees can punish Google / Facebook / Amazon for ethical lapses by leaving
I mean I enjoy Mastodon as much as the next person, but where does this sudden interest in metal come from?
Twitter has done more to stop 3rd party developers than stop nazis
"fa" stands for "fascist" and "anti" stands for "anti"
plus you're in charge of a community so now you have two jobs nobody's paying you for
a mastodon instance? p sure I don't need more computers to be responsible for
Neoliberal: Actually the Nordic states are extremely capitalist aside from their generous welfare states

What I want to see on Twitter: the tweets voluntarily tweeted by people I choose to follow, in order
What Twitter wants to show me: anything but that, apparently
Aufstehen für Pegida
"Die neue »Sammlungsbewegung« ist Linkspartei minus Antirassismus."
People get so upset about automated block lists. I understand! I too prefer handcrafted, artisanal blocking random people I have never interacted with that say repulsive things in other people's mentions over mass produced lists.
I have said it before and I'll say it again: so-called "Filter bubbles" are not only a good thing but an actual manifestation of human being expressing themselves and therefore an important aspect of realizing human rights.
Forcing content on people that they explicitly do not subscribe to is the least Twitter thing Twitter could do.
Being able to define one's subscriptions is the killer feature of Twitter.
Twitter is "experimenting with features that would promote alternative viewpoints in Twitter’s timeline to address misinformation and reduce 'echo chambers.'" https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2018/08/15/jack-dorsey-says-hes-rethinking-core…

New: at DEF CON, hackers participated in a new capture the flag to find sensitive public information.

Statistisch gesehen sind @SchwarzmitMilch@twitter.com und ich Ausreißer: Beide haben studiert obwohl beide Eltern kein Abitur haben. And that is fucked up.
Das ist in Deutschland ja grundsätzlich so: Reichtum/Status/Zugang werden vererbt, es gibt wenig Aufstiegschancen. Bei Bildung komplett identisch.
