Pinned toot

Just found my new favorite mastodon-interface on pinafore.social via reading "Dissapearing frameworks"[1] from @peter, and it *is* much faster, besides of a better UI, also.

Long overdue, but finally done:

Deleted my fakehook, birdsite
and geemail.

Feels good to not be a client of spineless companies anymore.

I grew up in times where anyone saying xenophobic/antisemitic/pro-nazi stuff would have outed themselves as complete idiots.
These days I hear shit like "it wasn't all bad, they also built the Autobahn" and similar creepy things on the streets.
Don't stay silent, , oppose, if you're safe enough to do so.

Oh and hi ! Love to see so many different, interesting people here and *not* be confronted with murderous propaganda, like it happens elsewhere.

@dexmexter after the 2nd time I was like "you're just making this up to help us understand how our biases work". But he also clearly displayed our trust in authority or people whom we perceive as more knowledgeable than ourselves, and how easily that can be taken advantage of.

(by DuckDuckGo)

Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez – a world designed for men

From the ‘one-size-fits-men’ approach to smartphone design to the medical trials that are putting women’s lives at risk … The neat thing about data is that it avoids thorny questions of intention. Criado Perez doesn’t set out to prove a vast conspiracy; she simply wields data like a laser, slicing cleanly through the fog of unconscious and unthinking preferences.

Now reading about 's p2p-concept, that's exciting, thanks!

The reason I stopped using the no-ethics variant some years ago, was when I searched for information about a case where a politician would pay landlords with public money to not rent houses to migrants and bragged about it in front of a reporter's cam: No results. Using another engine with the same keywords gave plenty results...

An #introduction: I'm Melissa (they/them)! Some of my projects are in my bio, but in general I am and do:

#gamedev & #podcasting

#gardening #succulents #cacti

#asexual / #grayace / #queer

#polyamory #relationshipanarchy

I write. I #webdev. I play way too much Fallen London. I collect tattoos. I will not call posts "toots".

I like learning to be more imaginative in devising solutions to difficult problems. 🎊
