I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at

Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.

I really wish people would stop shutting down people who make their first step in the right direction for not immediately having made the second step too.

Please be kinder towards small steps. Any improvement is an improvement and even if it is not close to perfection yet it is worth celebrating.

Shutting people down because they haven't reached perfection yet just kills all motivation.

#Python creator Guido van Rossum puts it plain and simple. Asked about what role python could play in the #web3 world, he says

„Let web3 die in a flaming ball of fire.“

This #article by @solene makes me want to use #OpenBSD more.

What #security does a default OpenBSD installation offer?

So many basic #features; like #swap being #encrypted by default, web browser not being able to access my documents, server software running under #chroot seems like a common sense; but #Linux distros don't have them; at least not by default.

It requires many steps to be taken to set these up. But OpenBSD has them by default.

Secure by default. Nice. 👍

Been thinking today about how centralisation is often about power, and decentralisation often about resistance.

🇺🇦 conflict, info for the internally displaced! 

Here's a similar service where displaced people can find a host family *in #Ukraine*:

Send it to your friends who might be stuck in a city they have never been to, with no place to go.

And send it to your friends who might be able to host an internal refugee within Ukraine.

If you are looking for non-violent games on Steam, you can follow this curator listing some :)

There is also this curator listing some games and will explain in which way or how much they are violent :

Because video games shouldn't be all about destruction.

css html rant (no joke zone) 

I want to like Bootstrap, but using it is akin to bringing a whole host of assumptions to your environment. It's akin to inviting one friend and that friend invites all of their friends and trashes your place.

The culprit is clearfix.less, which is imported with Bootstrap 3.4. In there is a hack for fixing flexbox layouts using content: ' '. AFAICT it's something that Opera needed.

I'm not able to override this to content: none;, which is exactly what I need. cont
