i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

Britisches Gericht kippt Auslieferungsverbot für #Assange

Der Umgang mit dem „Fall Julian Assange“ durch Justizbehörden in Schweden u UK stärkt nicht das Vertrauen in den #Rechtsstaat

#Whistleblower als Verräter und #Journalisten als Kriminelle einzustufen unterminiert unser Verständnis von Menschenrechten

Was hilft? Öffentliche Diskussion solcher Missstände und Anprangern von staatlichem Fehlverhalten

Am I the only one who would like to have the fediverse timelines reversed so that I would scroll downwards? Then I'd scroll in the direction I'm reading and see the beginning of a post first.

I am often asked if I will “return to cryptocurrency” or begin regularly sharing my thoughts on the topic again. My answer is a wholehearted “no”, but to avoid repeating myself I figure it might be worthwhile briefly explaining why here…

Starting #slime on #emacs to connect to #sbcl finishes with this message in the echo area:

Connected. Detlev, this could be the start of a beautiful program.

This feels like a message from a different place and time when hacking was still mostly fun...

If you see the above post and wonder what happened this time, I think this blog post sums it up quite nicely: stephendiehl.com/blog/signal.h

#Signal turning into a crypto-ponzi currency scheme?

stephendiehl.com/blog/signal.h

Surprise!

That Signal:
- isn't really free/libre software (as Moxie denied freedom to redistribute modified version)
- would *never* federate (political choice of centralization)
- updated server software wasn't published
- invaded people's phonebooks
- runs on Amazon+NSA's infrastructure
- is virtually impossible to use out of Google's infrastructure -
- etc.

...didn't seem to be enough to alarm Signal users.

Würden wir in Europa nur wenige Jahre das Geld das momentan in Lizenzen von MS & Co. gesteckt wird in lokale Firmen mit Freie Software Lösungen investieren wären wir im Handumdrehen unabhängig und langfristig deutlich erfolgreicher.

Das einzige was wir dafür brauchen ist der nötige politische Wille unabhängig zu werden und die lokale Wirtschaft zu stärken, anstatt Milliarden jedes Jahr aus dem Fenster zu werfen!

im trying to get youtube to Algorithm the fuck out of this video that was posted in 2011 and has 500 views

Calling smartphone equipped teenagers 'digital natives' is a mistake because a smartphone makes you a consumer rather than a native of anything.

If you want a child to become a digital native give them an actual computer instead of a corporate controlled and curated consumer device.

@threemaapp If only our son's activities (school, sports clubs, etc.) weren't centered around WhatsUp groups. 🤮​

Since end 2020 @Facebook@twitter.com banned linking in FB posts to delta.chat stating "violation of community standards". Multiple people filed complaints but nothing happened, no responses, no explanations, nothing. Please help (RT/like or comment how to proceed). Thanks!

Tomorrow is #DeleteWhatsAppDay! 🚮 Despite WhatsApp’s delay of its privacy policy update, many users have decided to take a stand for #privacy and leave the controversial chat service on the original deadline of February 8. ✊
