There's a petition to Save the .org top level domain. Apparently, ICANN could still stop it from being sold.
savedotorg.org
I know, petitions rarely work, but I also know that _sometimes_ they do.
Please consider signing if you _run_ anything there, or if you _use_ or _care about_ anything that's on a .org domain. Also, boosting this to others who follow you, would be very much appreciated.

I just walked by a street musician playing the Game of Thrones theme on steel drums and didgeridoo… and his interpretation was surprising and quite good.

Tell me again how FOSS (which I love and use and contribute to!) has a culture that is totally normal and not just a playground for hateful nerdboys?

The #GNU Image Manipulation Program maintainers use a lot of branding for their program with something both sexual and offensive to a minority.

When called on it, they tell people to fork.

When people fork it, they are ridiculed and insulted.

Fewer than 3% of Firefox users have enabled the Enhanced Tracking Protection.

Most people don't change defaults but it's such a quick switch for a big speed boost, a much less intrusive and much less distracting web. Here's how markosaric.com/firefox/

In case you missed it... I posted about my experience of switching from macOS to #Linux.

It's now been a year so I wrote about why I switched, what I like about Gnome and a guide on how others can try Linux (and perhaps switch) too

On the other hand: One year, these ethics compliance quizzes had examples that:

- had one example which talked about my country of origin and working from home in my country of residence

- had a whole story arc detailing the exact not-well-known job my girlfriend does

- used names of my family members as example names (even multiple in the same slide)

These aren't targeted. It was coincidental. (Supposedly.)

…But it was still mainly situations that I'm not ever placed in.

Doing those mandatory year-end ethics quizzes for compliance reasons.

I feel like none of it _really_ matters because:

1. I'm never in these situations.

2. It's mostly common sense.

3. I've taken these things for so many years already.

4. Most importantly: How does any of this really matter when you see even the highest levels of governments* be so openly corrupt?

(* I'm _especially_ looking at countries that start with "United" and their respective governments.)

"Do you have something to hide?" is a manipulative rebuke to those that use #encryption.

It would help us all turn this conversation around. Because, the answer is: YES, we do have something to hide.

Things that we should hide, and must question why a government or business NEEDS access to:

- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
- Billing and banking information.
- Purchase information.
- Web search history.
And more...

Brave is showing up in my newsfeeds again, so

Periodic reminder that Brendan Eich, the CEO of Brave Software, is a homophobe who donates to anti-LGBT organizations.

I'm not saying that you shouldn't use the browser. But you should probably be wary of any monetization attempts, since we know where that money will go.

A trolley is approaching a switch with two possible tracks. On one track, the trolley can only tell the truth, but on the other, it can only tell lies. Which
