If you see an org you're interested in, maybe give them a follow to encourage them to spend time on here?

(Note that it doesn't include official crossposting bots such as @greenpeace_ch )

Wer hat uns verraten? Endliche Automaten!

Immer wenn die jährliche Spendenkampagne auf der Wikipedia läuft, hängt bei uns ein Monitor, auf dem die Kommentare zu den Spenden durchscrollen. Ich mag das sehr, wenn ich ins Büro bei Wikimedia Deutschland komme und als erstes auf Wertschätzung blicke. Danke, liebe Spendende!

The vision is for #Wikidata to become a central hub for #dataintegration, #dataenhancement and #datamanagement in the #culturalheritage domain, leveraging synergies between institutions, helping them to reduce duplicate work, and thereby functioning as the ultimate #authority file providing mapping information between these different collections.

You asked for more technical explainers, it's what you get.

Top article this from Tom. Basic overview, heads to decent technical explanation (I learned some things), and a comparison against other browsers and how they handle the same task.

How #Firefox assures your sync data is kept private. And not some bs version of "private" that has you rolling your eyes.

Reclaiming RSS

“Before Twitter, before algorithmic timelines filtered our reality for us, before surveillance capitalism, there was RSS: Really Simple Syndication … As we move away from the centralised web to the peer web, it’s time to rediscover, re-embrace, and reclaim RSS.”

Some ideas from the #HackerNarratives blogpost I'm writing:

#cyberpunk doesn't describe a state of the world, but is a perspective which we can take to perceive the reality.

Cyberpunk and technical dystopias started out as warnings, but got embraced because of a constant future shock the society is feeling.

Now it's easier to accept huge megacorporations and surveillance because _we know them_ from the culture and stories, while we see no realistic alternatives.

I think the last video game console that had a reason to exist was the Dreamcast, but I'm seriously considering buying a Nintendo Switch.

Ich verstehe kein Wort Italienisch, aber wenn die Pizzabäcker leidenschaftlich mit Händen diskutieren und Wörter fallen wie „Einstein“ und „Heisenberg“, fühl ich mich irgendwie wohl.

How could the future of Wikipedia look like? It could be abstract.

Here's an extended whitepaper by Denny Vrandečić, founder of Wikidata and ontologist at Google, on the idea of an Abstract Wikipedia, written language-independently in order to be turned into natural language for writers and readers, and allow more people to share in the sum of all knowledge.

I briefly saw a #solarpunk thing describing our planet as a really big spaceship, and I’m thinking about how great it is as a spaceship and how we need to keep it in good condition and make sure all the food and air and waste systems stay balanced and 😭🌱🌤 *cries in solarpunk*
