After major security vulnerabilities or data breaches, "security people" show up and tell you to delete your account immediately. "Oh, time to delete your account! Switch to service/product … instead!"

Such statements totally ignore that security vulnerabilities are widespread and the vast majority of data breaches won't become publicly-known. Full control over your data and devices requires 100% isolation from the internet, not just arbitrarily switching services or products.

Jeff Bezos made $50,000,000,000 last year, or about 2.5 million times his Amazon employees.

But no, let's blame average Americans for getting haircuts and eating at restaurants for humanitarian crisis-level lack of access to basic necessities like healthcare, affordable housing, food, non-lead-filled water, education, childcare, etc..

Fuck off.

Here it is at last - a UN report specifically claiming that capitalism is destroying the planet.

What we need is radical efforts at degrowth and wealth redistribution, a complete overhaul of agriculture (including a gigantic reduction in animal farming) and efforts to cut population growth and carbon emissions.

Aweigh is an open source navigation system that does not rely on satellites: it is inspired by the mapping of celestial bodies and the polarized vision of insects.

When I started pixelfed, stuff like blocks or mutes wasn't even on my radar.

I have never experienced abuse or harassment online. I've never blocked an account on twitter. It was naive to think those should not be a priority based on my own experiences.

I've learned so much this past year, and strive to build a safer alternative to IG for everyone.

It might take a bit longer, but it sure is worth it!

Happy #EarthDay !
This is what’s needed to stay below 1,5°C of warming.

Note that this doesn’t include the aspect of equity, feedback loops or additional warming hidden by toxic air pollution.

Sorry to bother but it’s time to act.

Another thing about #EarthStrike.

We don't get to tell #workers what to do. Callously calling a strike on a timeline of months is fucking **DANGEROUS.**

As someone on the Earth Strike Matrix said:
"[The] strikes in [Arizona] took four years to organize and you're planning on corraling unions worldwide in a few [months]."
"[This] comes off heavily as kids telling workers what to strike for, when to strike, and how to strike without first looking for input from the actual [workers.]"

Likewise, #XR callously telling passionate people to get arrested for "the movement" is horrifying.
