Trillion-dollar company in a world with exponentially-increasing inequality and starving kids: why don’t we call it XS? Yeah, XS sounds good to me… don’t see any problem with that.

Just a reminder that sometimes the Internet can be beautiful...

I want Apple to create products that we can upgrade and reuse, rather than stuff that only Apple can upgrade and reuse.

In case you're wondering: the #EU just voted to impose filters on all the text, audio, photos, videos, etc you might post. If you think this will help photographers or other creators, you don't understand filters.

Meanwhile, the EU has voted to kill the Internet as we know it and possibly aid in creating an even bigger surveillance machine in the process.

Civil disobedience is the way forward on this one. We redouble our efforts to create decentralised alternatives and if they’re deemed illegal by this myopic legislation, so be it. Fuck ’em. We go to jail if we need to.

If you had any illusions that the battle for personhood and human rights would be easier in our age, think again.

We suffered a crushing setback today, but it doesn't change the mission. If this vote had gone the other way, we'd still be fighting today. And tomorrow. And the day after.

As we've seen with #NetNeutrality in the USA, the movement to protect the free and open Internet has widespread popular support and can turn into a potential third rail for politicians. (5/6) nytimes.com/2018/05/16/technol

Today Members of the European Parliament adopted three terrible proposals in the new #CopyrightDirective and rejected every good one, setting the stage for mass, automated surveillance and arbitrary censorship of the Internet. (1/6) eff.org/deeplinks/2018/09/toda

RT @c3o@twitter.com: @Soc_of_Authors@twitter.com Wrong, unfortunately. Article 11 would make reproducing a snippet of a news article, such as those almost always accompanying links, require a license. The exception for "acts of hyperlinking" doesn't cover these extracts, just "plain" web addresses.

Vegan ice cream is usually pretty good because they often use coconut cream as a a base and coconut cream is fucking amazing.

tfw you remember that literally all programmers used to be women until men realized that it was actual intellectual work and ran them out of the field so that 17 year old shitheads could make posts on reddit about how man brains are genetically wired for programming

@jacklenox

I would really like to see a straight forward but safe solution for that.

A moves to B

Probably something like: Instance A sends a move request to instance B. B accepts this moving request and sends an ACK back to A. A informs instances to look at B now.

People get a notification to approve the movement.

Additionally after B confirmed A that it takes over the account, content could be moved as well.
