you think your life is hard? i get used to ctrl-shift-c to copy from the terminal and then accidentally do it in firefox, which just opens the developer sidebar. then i have to select the text all over again and copy it normally. it's agony.

Maybe I should stop touching anything with software in it and build an orchid garden instead.

Stop saying RSS is dead people. I'm literally using it to read your shitty article about how it's dead

I just spent a week trying to make a merge request to the liking of the maintainer, after which he rather reimplemented my 6-line feature. Except that his doesn't work. 🤦‍♀️

Sorry to be like this but women are really beautiful huh

Capitalism, unchecked, is so corrosive. It's been doing horrible things to the tech industry. Companies are financial instruments and nothing more. This means *tech invention* is a financial instrument and nothing more.

"Now, more than ever, we need a press driven by ideals determined to amplify what is most important for enabling an informed citizenry. Not what will get clicks or appease hedge fund masters. We need voices who are information stalwarts, determined to explain complex issues to the public."

So, as you may have read, the European Parliament voted today as follows:

#Article13 (upload filters)
Passed: 366 for, 297 against

#Article 11 (link tax)
Passed: 393 for, 279 against

(They also banned people taking unofficial video or photos of sports events ⚽ 🚫 📸 )

So, close but not enough 😟

However, this was not the final vote. There will be more negotiations and a final vote in spring of 2019.

I would advise following Julia Reda, one of the good MEPs:

RT @Senficon@twitter.com: Final vote for Parliament position on the copyright directive with and : adopted. Parliament has failed to listen to citizens’ and experts’ concerns.

RT @Senficon@twitter.com: Catastrophic Article 11 vote: The European Parliament just endorsed a that would make using the title of a news article in a link to it require a license.

Oh fuck this shit
RT @Senficon@twitter.com Article 13 vote: The European Parliament endorses for all but the smallest sites and apps. Anything you want to publish will need to first be approved by these filters, perfectly legal content like parodies & memes will be caught in the crosshairs
