@TheKinrar Hello. Does this instance block sending emails to emails that end in XYZ? I am unable to change my email and it says 'Sending email' but I never get one at my new or old email address.

@toast Jokes on you. I'm a 30+ year old boomer who used the internet back when it was just homegrown idiots yelling at each other in AOL chat rooms and saying 'ASL?' over and over again. *craaaaack* *siiiiip* Ain't no Russian bots in my town.

@Kotik I never understood boosting until I looked at this shirt and realized people NEED to see this. Thank you.

@veer66 to me, the term #coding means the ACTUAL writing code part, while #programming involves more stuff, such as setting up an environment, build tools, compiling, etc.
So if you're a programmer you know how to do a lot of those steps, including coding.

Something is wrong with my mastodon. I can’t change my email and I can’t follow users anymore. What the heck.?

Hayden explains that Russian, Chinese, and Saudi authorities will also seek exceptional access backdoors.

Proposals to get around encryption, like client-side scanning, open the door to abuses by those authoritarian regimes and other bad actors.

@markosaric @laura I constantly urge my students to build their own websites. Some listen. Some don’t. But for every one that listens I almost invariably see them use it as part of their resume and it always pays off. Having your own website makes you just a little bit cooler than the next person.

"One small way to get our independence and agency back from exploitative platforms is to build personal websites to share on instead. It’s a step to taking back control, and building a web that neither relies upon, nor feeds, the harms of Big Tech."

Great post by @laura


Technology, thought experiment 

@fribbledom as above so below. They are running a hyper visor to build VMs and distributing the power using space docker.

What's the one thing every web user can do to fight #SurveillanceCapitalism ?

Replace the Google Chrome browser

I've started a new website to send a message to Google that we prefer the internet without them

Dear everyone who is considering making a video of yourself talking rather than just writing the *exact same words* into a text file, a blog post or a PDF:

Please don't.

I love how Mastodon is 100% functional and contains zero trackers.

It's almost as if you don't need trackers to make a functioning site and any trackers on other sites are wholly unnecessary and should be fought against on every possible level...

@fdej888 this seems like an incredible psyop campaign initiated by anti-American forces.
