I just noticed that is now fully limited without login. And it's got aggressive about insisting on the login as well.

What software / platforms are people using that perform this kind of popular photo blogging function?

F in might be for "free", but who's going to pay for the therapy I need after dealing with some of it?
I do wish some developers would think twice about what they inflict on the world.

So suddenly there’s a lot of attention around email and it’s exposing how many people in the web community still use Gmail. Like actually trust all your personal information and communication (and that of your potentially marginalised or vulnerable contacts) with Google. 🤮

There are a lot of hard problems and lack of alternatives when it comes to rights-respecting technology. But email (as imperfect as it is) has a fair few affordable alternative providers. Small change, big difference.

The German Corona Warn App went live today. F-Droid cannot distribute the app for multiple reasons:

1) The core bluetooth contact tracing functionality is only implemented in Google play services and requires proprietary client libs to be included in the app.
2) The google api mentioned above is only available for use by apps which are whitelisted by google and distributed through the play store.

@rysiek

recemtly I heard Bradley Kuhn making this argument: IRC os old an crank but it has resisted the onslaught of the proprietary chat techs

Why ?

Because its people clung on it

It's not the tech, its the culture

In some cases it's the anthropologies that drive the tech, not the other way around

and geeks suffer from dopamine pollution as everybody else 🤷‍♂️

> Privacy is the #freedom to be imperfect

In my understanding, #privacy is, in some way, an equivalent to #grace and #forgiveness:

It is #acceptance of who we are and everything that we have been.

It encourages us with #trust, to become who we are meant to be.
It does so without keeping a #permanentrecord of our shortcomings, our wrongdoings, our failures, our faults and flaws.

It shuts the door close to, and sets us free from #shame and #accusation.
It is part of a prejudice-free world.

Part II, also as yet unfair, still, some people have spent a lifetime trying to build free services, yet users won't pay the price of a beer for a lifetime of IM from something like

What? Whatsapp?
"Get a life, get a real messenger."

There is a parasitic element to supporting these corporations that feed off of our needs.

This is a little unfair, I know it is not really time yet, but that time is approaching to say to users:

What? Gmail?
"Get a life, get a real email."

I ❤️ my calendar

The pun on the cover might be a bit bad, but I love that on the side you can see that I marked every Friday green for #FridaysForFuture and inside it's full of sometimes helpful info on sustainable living.
This week the calendar basically says #FuckOffGoogle and #FuckOffFacebook.
