it's wild how a global pandemic where people are ill and unable to provide their LABOR to the economy makes capital panic and shit its pants. it's almost as if all VALUE that ACTUALLY EXISTS is derived from LABOR, perhaps there's a THEORY ABOUT THIS...

An intuition 💞

Maybe a deep sanitary/human/social/political/economic crisis is a chance to make more obvious the difference between:

💥 commercial, centralized, attention-based networks, which algorithms and induced flock-behaviours favour fast-paced spectacular information. Generate fear/anxiety/panic/profit..

💗 the #Fediverse, where on a slower pace we take time to verify sources, also reassure and care for each other. Collectively create and nurture active solidarities.

🎉 Welcome to newcomers! 🎉

A few personal tips:

👌 the Fediverse is NOT twitt*r! enjoy a more relaxed, courteous, benevolent way of interacting! you are part of it!

🤚 introduce yourself! also fill bio and post a couple "toots" before following people to have more chance they'll follow back..

👍 favourite and follow generously! This is how to create link around. No algorithm-god is spying on you, telling you who to follow, what to read! \o/

⚠️ many people care about CW... learn about that

@queeranarchism @dawnstar I think the easiest and least ambiguous way to express this thought would be "things should be owned by the people that use/need to use them"

Houses should be owned by residents, not landlords. Workplaces should be owned by workers, not bosses. Trains should be owned by commuters, not capitalists. Aquifers should be owned by the people drinking the water, not someone hundreds of miles away. And they should be owned by everyone that uses them, collectively

The only confusion I've seen with this sentiment has taken the form of "so when I'm not wearing the clothes in my closet people can just come take them?" to which the answer is "that'd be a dick move, so no."

Still incredibly pissed off at the state of present-day bodmod technology, by the way, for both furry and gender reasons

I know I've posted before about how I like to watch computers "work", especially if there's text scrolling on the screen involved

long compiles are a good one, file transfers with lots of files of varying sizes, and so on. tonight, though, I realized that these can be lumped under a sort of "digital fish tank"* label.

Anyways, it's come to my attention that watching a dwarf fortress ai play the game might do the same thing

* i know you can just get videos of fish tanks these days, these don't do it for me

I really love the #FSF's idea to call the release of proprietary software under a free license after the end of its support to "#upcycle #software"

this gives a very meaningful connotation to an otherwise rather technical / legal issue and helps to make it understandable for non-experts. Also it is short and handy & works pefect for slogans. Great job! I will re-use it from now in further debates and argumentations.

And btw, sign the petition to #UpcycleWindows7:

I'm not surprised and still disappointed at the lack of outrage on the persecution of Glenn #Greenwald (for 'cyber crimes') because of the great, and embarrassing for the Brazilian gov, journalism he (and his team) did: theintercept.com/series/secret

It's sad to see how gullible and short sighted many people are and believe the persecution is justified because 'hacking is a crime'.

After #Assange this is the 2nd high-profile journalist under attack.
Are people really that eager for authoritarianism?

I’m still really deep in the hole after car repairs and being sick. Rent is coming up, and we can’t make it without help. I’m sorry to ask, but I’m working as hard as I can and it’s not enough. Please help us. Every spare cent we’ve had has gone into these repairs and trying to come back. I’m the only one working right now, and I can’t keep up the pace anymore. #TransCrowdFund

🔥 CVE-2019-14287

A flaw in Sudo—that comes installed on almost every #Linux OS—could let users run commands as "root" even when they're restricted.

Details ➤ thehackernews.com/2019/10/linu

How? Just by specifying user ID "-1" or "4294967295" in the command instead of the root.
