If you've had experience working with your doctor to document severe depression or similar issues for FMLA and/or disability certification I'd love to hear from you via DM. Boosts appreciated. - @AzureKingfisher @kensanata @regines

What's a good image for 'feeling lonely / wanting to connect'?

It's so heartening to see a steady stream of stories about ethical tech. News about the #privacy impacts of your tech choices is hitting daily news, but now with the message: "it doesn't have to be this way."

To get the silkroad rolling at #35c3 we need help, especially, with the build-up, but also for the tear down.

You should not fear height for this.

RT Zwei Kommentare von (Berater des 'Standard') und von zur (nicht rechtskräftigen) Entscheidung der österr. Datenschutzbehörde über das Modell "Bezahlen oder (exzessive) Datenweitergabe".

Fair von, dem Raum zu geben:

You have corporate leaders, a bunch of sociopaths like Jack, Zuckerberg and so on, or a bunch of people so well insulated from what they created that they don’t see anything wrong.

Here with Mastodon Eugen quite clearly cares, if a lot of people continue to prod him like they are used to prodding sociopaths you can achieve two things, either he burns the heck out or stops caring.

You don’t appreciate how hard it is to make those design calls. It’s exceptional luck that Eugen gets it ~right.

"in Australia, even counseling a technologist to oppose these orders is a crime."

I don't live in Australia. But if you do, it is IMMORAL for you to comply with this law. I am hereby counseling you to resist at all costs and by any means necessary.

And if you live outside Australia but do business with Australian companies, time to take your business elsewhere, because they cannot be trusted.

Kurzer aber guter Kommentar: Facebook ist nicht die Öffentlichkeit!

"Viele Anbieter füttern brav die sozialen Medien, lassen ihre eigene Webseite aber verhungern."

Wusstet ihr, dass die DKB bei jedem Logout aus dem Online-Banking Facebook darüber informiert, dass ihr grad "bei der Bank wart"? Sie verstößt damit gegen die DSGVO. Ich werd heut den Datenschutzbeauftragten des Landes Berlin darüber informieren.

Recherchiert hat das @kuketzblog. Im Blogbeitrag gibt es Details und eine erste Stellungname der Bank.

I dunno if you lot know this about me but as well as fixing coin-ops, I run a little indie multiplayer text adventure game at Have done for just over ten years now. No ads, no creepy addictive game mechanics, kept alive by voluntary donations.

I'd really appreciate a boost, 'cause Project Wonderful shut down earlier this year, and we could do with some word of mouth.

To the Tumblr refugees: welcome!

Having been on the Internet for over thirty years, I have one piece of advice for creative folks working online:

Control Your Platform.

Don't build a business around Facebook, Tumbler, G+, Geocities, MySpace, AltaVista, or any of these other third parties that claim to offer quick and easy results.

They all go away. Every one of them.

Build your own site. Use third parties to steer people to your site.

Third parties are the devil--useful devils, but devils.

🛡️ Call for mobilization to defend the practice of Self-Hosting 🛡️

@LaQuadrature published an article regarding the future European regulation. Under the pretext of fighting online terrorist radicalization, it will impose unrealistic censorship obligations on *all* Internet actors.

The intent is explicitly to destroy internet decentralization.

If you are using YunoHost, you probably run services which are open to the public and hence are affected by this regulation.

making websites that don't load content without running a bunch of unnecessary JS and hogging a bunch of bandwidth and CPU is essentially saying "you need to have a fancy first-world computer to view this content, otherwise fuck off".
