Why is youtube *so bad*

Imagine taking probably the biggest single repository of global culture of our time and managing to shape it into a fundamentally annoying object through profit seeking

Blockchain study finds 0.00% success rate and vendors don't call back when asked for evidence

“Though Blockchain has been touted as the answer to everything, a study of 43 solutions advanced in the international development sector has found exactly no evidence of success.”

Man, it seems so bad you’d almost think I’d have a slide warning people about blockchain oil salesmen (they’re almost entirely men) in my talks or something…

#blockchain #bullshit

Still hearing the time-honed bullshit that “nobody cares about their privacy” at #NordicPrivacyArea. Bullshit. People are lied to on a daily basis with billion-dollar budgets.

Research of almost 1m Android apps reveals how data from smartphones are harvested and shared, with nearly 90 per cent of apps set up to transfer information back to Google. Best get all your apps from @fdroidorg - guaranteed no data sharing with Google! 😀

Hey Mastodon. I'm looking for a #FOSS app for #android to edit photos.

I would like to do basic editing such has cut and paste part of the image, filters ...
Light curve and cloning tool would be a nice extra.

I found nothing on #fdroid but maybe some of you know something !

Boost appreciated 😃

The internet is already broken bc of #Google.
Try it. Block all gooogle IPs, subsidiaries, libraries, & so-called ‘free services.’ Venture further to co’s they invest in like HTC, MagicLeap, etc. Things won't look right, not load, not allow you #ReCaptcha access, no notifications, nada etc. This is why #FuckOffGoogle is important. #Google is a monopoly bc there is no way to not give them your personal information when wanting to surf the www safely without being #Privacy #PeolpleFarm’ed by them.

This is a *very* handy graphic. I’m still stuck on arrow keys too because I don’t remember the shortcuts

(Caveat, these do depend on your particular shell and distro so do check that they work the same)

"I sold my users’ privacy to a larger benefit. I made a choice and a compromise. And I live with that every day" #WhatsApp founder regrets that he sold WhatsApp to #Facebook. He waived $850 million and left Facebook. Maybe it is time for you to leave too? forbes.com/sites/parmyolson/20 #privacy

"Google wants to kill the URL"

No

"People have a really hard time understanding URLs" is not a good enough reason to get rid of URLs

To this day, I refuse to use an AMP specific webpage as it breaks the open web. When I'm presented with an AMP link, I edit the URL to remove that component so I get the full page. "Safe" URLs will similarly cater to Google interests and I will not be using it

If other vendors go along with this, I'll write my own browser if I have to

Many on here make themselves out to be accepting and open to new people. Yet Wil Wheaton gets so much abuse, he was forced off the platform.

Like I said, great work folks. ☹️

More people should have their own instance. Let me know if you want help setting one up
