To fight Centralization:
- Own your data.
- Archive your data online and off.
- Use decentralized services like Mastodon and Matrix and whatever whenever possible.
- publish to places that aren't facebook or medium (and if you must, only use central services for syndication.)
To fight user hostility:
- Use ad blockers and privacy badger
- If you can get away with it, use no-script or similar when possible.
- Stop using, or reduce your use of, platforms that profit from treating you poorly.

What is the best RSS reader? Preferably free (haha) and able to set up boards/categories for different things (news, music, tech etc) Should I go back to Feedly?
Seems appropriate today to remember that we're building things out of sand here.

capitalism, emulators Show more
companies are stealing and selling *explicitly licensed as non-commercial* open-source emulator code, obviously against the will of the authors (copyright owners of the software), sometimes spitting in their faces and mocking them for being so foolish as to contribute to the commons and have their wishes respected.

No one needs to starve. No one needs to freeze. No one needs to die. There is enough for everyone. More empty homes than all the people without them, more food than grocers can even sell. The labor and the materials to end scarcity exist now. It is not a far-off dream. We can end scarcity in this life.
I have been looking for a tablet or a 2-in-1 that can run Linux and have at least the touch input and WiFi functional.
Sadly, none of the usual suspects (Dell, Lenovo, Acer) have anyting. I am not even talking about preinstalled Linux, just hardware that is supported.
Not even older models with outdated hardware. Nothing.
