Peertube is another great idea ruined by the myopia and hostile resistance to learning white men seem to carry with them at all times in the tech space to anyone not white and male.

I’ll just wait for something better to come along or build it myself when I have the time.

Human civilization needs media to function. It needs openmedia to flourish. In the world full of #deathcult we need media to save nature from widespread destruction/disruption. Of course if you are a eco fascist culling the human race is a option though media has a roll in that. So to summarize the is no escape from media. The #openweb give you the power to choose open or closed.

If you still trust these companies, you are a blithering idiot and you deserve to be laughed out of the fucking room.

Reminder: companies like Facebook and Google are a threat to the Internet and the Web. They want to keep you on their site (with Facebook it's pretty obvious, with Google it's through AMP) so they can keep serving you adverts, which earns them money.

Those companies don't care about open access to information, privacy or consumer choice. Those values aren't profitable. What do you think they'll do when they control the majority of Web traffic?

i'm sorry if i seem like a buzzkill, but all i can do is speak the truth as i see it.

if you're actively onboarding the influx of new users, you should do your best to make sure your stuff is secure. you owe your new users nothing less.

if you're developing software, you must not justify things with "this depends on all nodes working together nicely." you owe the users who have decided to trust your software with, potentially, their *life* (they are evading the state after all) nothing less than to take things seriously.

it's been time to take security seriously for a long time now, but it's really time now. if we fuck this up, it could have serious consequences for innocent people.

Ok, I'm really angry. GTK4 will REMOVE ACCESSIBILITY FEATURES: gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/iss

No screen reader or braille displays, no eye tracking for the paralyzed, no information to screen magnifiers so they can move while typing, no . 100% fuck you GTK. Fuck. You.

What does this mean for disabled people? Back to Windows for you!

Its hard for people to see/understand the difference between personal and social conversations as the #deathcult has banished understanding of the social. Its a basic problem we face.
