- I also serve our English masters, I keep their precious trains running
- Are you happy keeping their trains running?
- Happy? I don't know, but I'm good at it.
- I dream of hunting in this jungle of metal and asphalt. I imagine my true form leaping from beam to ledge to terrace roof until I am at the top of this island. Until I can growl in the faces of all the men who believe they can own me.

cnbc is reporting that a fiat chrysler minivan factory in canada is halting production because workers refused to go to work due to pandemic fears
yes, this is good, more of this looking out for each other and less of the looking out for the company's profit margins, thank
a rolling de facto general strike might be exactly what everyone needs to feel a bit better by the time this is all over

Judge Trenga has declared the grand jury ENDED & Jeremy RELEASED from his contempt!
Sadly, this doesn’t mean total freedom, but it does mean he can return to the BOP to finish serving his time, which is a step closer to freedom!
More info & statement soon.
Moving interview with @jz outside of Whoolwhich/Belmarsh court about the #AssangeCase, the usurpation and massacre of our original internet dream, and the essential role of open-knowledge like #Wikileaks in improving our understanding of reality.
tired: luddite means anti-technologism
wired: luddism opposes the boss who uses tech to exploit
inspired: whatever luddism means, i am here to destroy all computers
There's the POSIX® way and the Plan 9 way
The POSIX® way means meticulously recreating every known Unix quirk while proclaiming this sacrifice happens in the name of compatibility
The Plan 9 way means taking the nice things from Unix and improving on them, while replacing other things with new, clearer solutions
"We’ve already laid the infrastructure of techno-fascism. We’ve already created (and are creating) the panopticons. All the fascists need to do is move in and take the controls. And they will do so democratically, before destroying democracy, just as Hitler did."
re: feels about the browser as the one true os
this 1-click transient install paradigm belies presumptions about network availability. if i lose network access, but i keep my TODOs on some or another website, i lose access to my TODOs. why do my TODOs require network access? they don't! but this paradigm benefits app developers by ensuring clients are always using the latest build of your software, and by hiding all the complexity that distributed computing creates.
for example, how many of these fallacies does browser software assume in practice? answer: all of them
In these European countries whistleblowers, activists etc. can still communicate anonymously using prepaid SIM cards (in green).
Tomorrow the European Court on Human Rights will decide on my complaint against mandatory SIM card registration. https://www.patrick-breyer.de/?p=590380&lang=en

Developer-driven software distribution is a bad idea, which is why I dislike things like Flatpak.
Having distro maintainers involved in the process and installing your software from a free software distribution like Debian or FreeBSD is a much better distribution of power. The packages can be tuned to suit their environment without the developer having to repackage it for every distro, and the distro maintainers can keep out anti-features like telemetry and advertising.
The middleman may seem annoying to developers, but embrace the model and it'll work for you. Landing packages in your favorite distro isn't actually that hard, and the rest of the distros will follow. If you're an end-user who wants to see some software available for your distro, look into packaging and volunteer - it's easy.
