@danishcookies @Wewereseeds i disagree with you there. The state can absolutely serve the people, if it is controlled by the people. The reason we have so much corruption is because we elect our politicians every few years, and after that they can do whatever they want. So politicians just make promises for elections, and once they are elected, make politics for the rich and the companies.

On the other hand, elections work differently in socialist states like Cuba or China. There, politicians can be recalled at any time if they don't do what their voters want.

Law (even the international one) originates from national Constitutions. The Italian one clearly says private initiative is free as long as it does not compromise the collective interest and even private property is not a right but a concession that can be withdrawn when it is not functional to the interests of the community.

This doesn't mean Italy isn't liberal, instead this makes it a REAL liberal State and not a *liberist* one. In theory.

You are pretty naive if you think that regulation constraints big existing players.

The problem with regulating software now ia that it is still too primitive. We would hurt innovation that occurs on free software.

The solution for these issues is very simple: cap company size. Split Google, Facebook, Amazon and friends in a few thousands little company. Problem solved.

Dear #lollypop users, please help me making Lollypop 1.0 rock solid by testing current master:
- Using my devel packages: wiki.gnome.org/action/login/Ap
- Using GitLab CI

Plan to release on March 17 ( my birthday :-) )

Our GNOME 3.32 release is on the horizon, and it is jam-packed with goodies of all sorts! We have major performance improvements, fractional scaling, deeper Flatpak integration, and much, much more. What are y'all most excited for?

When websites say "use our app, it's much better", they mean better for them, not you.

This is a public service announcement.

If your job uses Slack, please remember that the administrators that have been configured can view any channel and download all files and all information published, including channels that are "private" or between 2 individuals.

Your discussions are not secure and can be snooped upon, even private conversations.

In other words: there is no privacy on Slack. Period.

This is the end of this public service

(Don't ask how I know that)

The fediverse is actually the most hostile and unsafe online place I ever saw. I get insulted and/or blocked by half of the people I engage with. That's so frustrating.

#Trunk is a community-run directory of people on the Fediverse who are looking for followers:


It's opt-in, so people only get listed if they specifically ask to be there.

It's organised by topic, and you can follow individuals or the entire list for that category.

Capitalism is a cancer. If our species is to survive, we must attune our immune system to identify the tumours—billionaires/trillion-dollar companies—as a threat instead of feeding them and celebrating their growth. And we better do it fast, ‘cos the patient is on life support.

I think I've come to the conclusion that I enjoy web development - I just fucking hate the industry. (What I've seen of it so far at least).

Business' don't have any concern with the basic rights of people (privacy specifically). Yes they stick a "Privacy Policy" in the right place, but that's only to tell you how they are violating it, in general.

We really are in a dirty place in the networked age. We need to do better. And developers need to stop worshipping at the alter if fucking #google

A dream of mine is a #GNU #Linux distro based on #Debian but distributed with #OSTree, with #KDE #Plasma and #LatteDock by default and a solid but simple tiling script for #Kwin, applications installed by unprivileged users as #Flatpak, #Kirigami convergent apps as system apps including a browser with #Firefox's #Gecko as engine, #Android apps support with #Anbox as #Discover backend to centralize the management of the apps, Windows apps provided by Flatpak repos like #Winepak that ships #Wine

If you want to know what's happening right now in Italy, look no further than this interview to Thomas Fazi: "The Italian crisis is devastating – the EU has been vicious"


Finally migrated my business #email from #GSuite to #FastMail! I actually like FastMail much better than GMail. It's simple, more powerful, and more intuitive. Sure it's closed source but they are building a new Open Standard for email clients called #JMAP and it's awesome! The one thing that pisses me off about #Google is they limit their best features to their apps. JMAP has to potential to bring new features to all mail clients. Can't wait to see where this goes! #DeleteGoogle

Twitter deleted thousands of Venezuelan accounts because they were "engaging in a state-backed influence campaign". Just one more reason why we cant trust big tech companies.
