Wie smart können und sollen Städte sein? Ein kluger Beitrag von Felix Simon in der NZZ zu Alphabets Plänen in Toronto einen Stadtteil zu bauen.

O-Ton Google: «was für tolle Dinge man tun könnte, wen uns nur jemand eine Stadt gäbe und uns einfach machen liesse». Städte gehören in Demokratien nicht jemandem.

Ough. So, let’s put on the invisible gloves to show the force of the invisible hand (a the smith said).

Hello, @Liberapay !

I made a public #Patreon post which explains the changes in a way that is not super confusing (with help from Twitter)

Also it sucks, is a terrible decision by Patreon, and as a Creator I wish I could opt out of them. What alternatives are there?

Any recommendations for a CalDav and CardDav server?

Is there any server with encryption so I (the admin) cannot read the user's calendars/addresscards…

Für Spaß habe ich 00 49 221 222900 gewählt (wie Armin auf dem alte Maus-film über dem Internet hatte getan in 1999).

Bald habe ich den 2100-Hz Antwortton (des altes analoges "Dampf-Modem") gehört!

Leider habe ich keinen Benutzername oder Kennwort für Netcologne (aber habe ich doch irgendwo mindestens einen Laptop mit integriertes 56k Modem)

Is anyone here good at UI & CSS? I'd like to create a custom theme for our .ART web frontend & will pay you for your time. I want a bit more than just switching colors & will make a git repository to maintain the small changes. Please DM me. #art #ux

Is RSS still a thing or have I set up TinyTinyRSS in vain?

Ok fediverse, I need some feedback/opinions on #keybase.io is this a solid solution for cryptography exchange? I've had a profile for going on 3 years now and have yet to use it for -anything- at all but PGP is becoming an integral part of my workflow.

I don't have anything to tell the world.
