fav this post and when i wake up I'll @ you with whatever song your avatar reminds me of 🎢

boost and I'll include a justifying sentence πŸ’•

Kill the concept of "RT does not equal endorsement."

Don't share content if you don't endorse it.

Don't spread it. Let it die.

Do not give it a platform.

User on sunbeam.city: Hello everyone! I'm new here. My interests include crocheting, gardening and electronics. Looking forward to sharing tips with you all!

User: Capitalism must fall sooner rather than later, or else it will take our planet with it. We must dispose of the Capitalist pigs now. No cops, no borders, no landlords. The time for revolution is coming. This vegan curry I just made is delicious.

@spoon thank you for the link. You raised another important issue. Those "Advisors on Privacy and Civil Liberties" are mostly from American universities. Academia showed its true colors after Aaron Swartz was arrested near the Harvard campus by MIT police. Those clowns said nothing to help Aaron during the next 2 years (!) of prosecution, not a single word. Academia represents corporate interest not public. Everyone should watch The Internet's Own Boy documentary.

I'm not sure if I've ever done this in my life...

1. 🌐 Download a web browser
2. πŸ” Check every setting
3. βœ”οΈ Change nothing, except...

--

First, guess which browser?

--

I only changed *one* thing by enabling the Better filter with this terminal command:

gsettings set org.gnome.Epiphany adblock-filters "['better.fyi/blockerList.txt']"

I love what this browser ships with out of the box

Thanks to @aral for Better and thanks to the @gnome team for Epiphany

@aral Hi Aral, I've been following your blog and watching your videos for the last month and you have greatly inspired me! I'm not a developer or much of a designer but I am in IT support and I want to redesign my business using your guidelines. I want to start helping people stay safer online and move to eithical alternatives to Survailance Capitalist services. Keep up the great work man!

#Manyverse is an Android app for the #Scuttlebutt social network:

manyver.se

Unlike traditional social networks, Scuttlebutt has no servers. Members store all their personal data on their own computer or phone, and connect directly to their friends' devices in order to update statuses. Scuttlebutt also works offline.

It's currently available on @fdroidorg and Google Play. (Note it's still in beta and many features are missing.)

By boosting this post you are giving me...

... An ego boost

Wow, I have to say that the Tootle app on @elementary OS is the best Mastodon app I've ever used on a Linux OS. I've been using a lot of apps in Elementary and it really feels like the OS was made for actual human beings. Ubuntu claims that they do this but they don't do it as well as Elementary. Kudos to the team. Well worth the $20 I paid for it! πŸ˜„
