I'm increasingly convinced that Disney is one of the companies that has done most harm in the world. Their harm is not economic or ecological, as in most cases, but cultural. Whenever Mickey Mouse would run out of copyright, they use their considerable power to make sure copyright terms are extended in the US – and because of US power, elsewhere in the world. This has robbed us a hundred years of culture that should be in public domain but instead is inaccessible and forgotten.
Hot coffee take
Most coffee is harvested in pretty unethical ways, even most fair trade coffee.
Look for something shade grown, find out if your roaster knows their farmers. Find out how they helped their farmers the last time a hurricane hit the area.
Then decide if you want to buy from them.
Hot coffee take
Most coffee is good when it's fresh.
That means freshly roasted, freshly ground, freshly brewed.
If any one of those isn't true, the coffee will be worse, if all of them are untrue, you're drinking from a keurig and God help you.
There's a new "experimental feature" being tested in Firefox 83: sponsored sites in the URL bar.
"Mozilla works with advertising partners to place sponsored tiles on the Firefox home page (or New Tab) that would be useful to Firefox users. Mozilla is paid when users click on sponsored tiles."
You can disable this by setting `browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.showSponsoredTopSites` to `false`.
Large chunks of the work is done👌but... still more to do.
This work is possible thanks to the support from app store users 🌞

- What items are entering the public domain this year in the US that you're excited for?
- - The Goldrush

- - The Great Gatsby
- - Arrowsmith

They want all .is, .tv, .ru and .to domains banned from the US because they're under the impression they're exclusively used for piracy lmao
@nihl and this is why youtube-dl is not just a nice-to-have, it's a requirement
Of the top 10 highest grossing movies of 2019, 7 of them were Disney movies. They have a practical monopoly on our culture, and the lessons that these movies contain are increasingly empty.
BIPOC matter. Cat mom. He/Stephen. Self-taught computers, hoping to learn more.
