Hello Fediworld ๐Ÿ‘‹

most of the #switchingsocial website is restored - have a look:
(or for short)

I want to thank @gemlog for preparing the web-archive version and @LuKaRo for extracting the missing pages from the Google Cache. Would have taken so much longer without you two ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Fediverse ๐Ÿ‘‹

it's @tobias here, broadcasting via this new fediverse account representing (formerly) #switchingsocial ๐ŸŽ‰

Please follow, dm and @ this account for everything related to the English version ... as @swisode wants to write German posts again ๐Ÿ˜

It's been one week since the #shutdown. There hasn't been any news from the original author yet. So, I believe, it's on us to keep this project alive.

Please stay tuned as I'll ask for support here - after some more preparations. ๐Ÿ’ป

Purism Librem 5 

Here's a reminder that if you're in Europe and have ordered a Purism Librem 5 phone, you have 14 days to request a return and refund under the Consumer Contracts Regulations. Otherwise, you've helped fund a company that willingly hosts hate speech in the fediverse.
You can also request this refund before it even arrives, that's what I did x


very excited 2 share w/ u the Untitled Sel + Hyperlink Podcast Episode 2: A Real Picaresque Frog Novel

special thank's to @martinidog and @citrustwee

I wrote about a software project of mine, #remwharead. It is a tool that allows you to #archive and tag articles you read online to a local database.


"The absence of the workersโ€™ movement is not a weakness, then, but in fact an opening. When it becomes too expensive to sustain and affirm the lives of workers as workers, this signals that the mutually reinforcing cycle between labor and capital has begun to decay, and the possibility of breaking that cycle altogether emerges."

To Fediverse users who use screen readers: do you prefer people to integrate #hashtags inside the text, or....
do you prefer when they repeat the word by listing all the hashtags at the end, after the text?
Please boost.

Geepers, I was looking into WYSIWYG HTML editors to recommend to people and the landscape's pretty barren.

Then I remembered that I went through this before a year or two back.

BlueGriffon it is, I guess.

Played the multiplayer driving scavaging adventure makeout thing called BOMB DOLLS

It's really cool! And the soundtrack is great too!

What RMS, Torvalds and the like cost us 

For every gross dude you tolerate, there's almost certainly several people who are pushed out of that space you created for him

The more influential the gross dude, the more people will emulate him and help to push out even more people

And it's mostly women who get pushed out

So for the likes of RMS and Torvalds, the damage they have done to the field of Computer Science may be incalculable

Good riddance

I was just over excitedly rambling to starwall about how amazing precolumbian agriculture was with companion planting, biodiversity of crops to stop disease wiping them out, terraced farming in the Andes with different species bred to grow at different altitudes. white people fucking destroyed so many amazing methods of agriculture with huge monocultues and livestock that ravage an ecosystem in that they eat EVERYTHING and destroy it. Australia was very much the same but even more cool in how unique their agriculture was before white people literally made it into the desert it is now in just 200 years


one last thought: RMS was outspoken and uncompromising. but there are many ways to be those things and some of them are a lot more effective and inspiring than others. look at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. she is fighting for someone besides herself. RMS is fighting to be the most morally pure person in the room. FLOSS needs more of the former. it doesn't need any more secret handshakes (eg inscrutable jargon, complicated build systems, version control systems you need a CS degree to understand)
