Yes, you can have "slow mode" on Masto by going to Preferences > Slow Mode (tick), click "save changes".

With slow mode on, any new posts have to be revealed manually and the timeline stays still by default.

Do you know any group/community/association working on the issue of and other giant corps in ? We want to start thinking about an awareness-raising campaign in our own group for the next schoolyear, and I'm on the hunt for ideas! (Boosts appreciated) 🤗

Personal information became a commodity, and it is important to understand that what we call “platforms” are actually systems specifically designed to capture and transmit human generated data @[email protected] in conversation with @[email protected] #edpsconf2022

The thing about large language models like GPT-3 and Lambda describing the experience of being self-aware is they can also describe the experience of being a squirrel.

Un día como hoy #16Junio de 1963, la cosmonauta e ingeniera Valentina Tereshkova se convierte en la primera mujer en viajar al espacio.

Fue la primera civil en realizar este viaje donde completó 48 órbitas alrededor de la Tierra en sus tres días en el espacio.

K-9 has been acquired by #Mozilla and will soon become #Thunderbird mobile, and I have a mixed feeling about it.

I have recently migrated to K-9 as an Android mail client after the drama that recently happened with #FairEmail.

Being an independent developer of an open-source mail client for mobile isn't easy. The developer of FairEmail has recently been quite open about the levels of stress he has been going through - also because of Google's harassment always looking for ways to take down his app.

So the shielding of Mozilla can definitely help and ensure that an email app keeps getting developed and supported. Sure, it's also an implicit admission that they've screwed up so much their mobile app strategy that they had to pick an open-source app built by a random guy and ask him if that could become the new Thunderbird mobile.

But I can't help with the feeling that independent developers who build stuff that big tech mafia dislikes can only keep doing so if they are protected by another company or by a foundation.

Oh, this is what all those "This-and-that's MacBook" showing up on my printer list were about, then? 🤔

@hobson @koherecoWatchdog @stragu @EU_Commission @humanetech I wrote this to describe a problem we have in NZ, but I suspect is pretty universal... maybe it's useful to others? davelane.nz/explainer-digitech
