Damn, I love it

Chromebooks foisted on students? Teachers monitoring what children do outside of the classroom via nonfree software? Surveillance of children is common, and it's at your child's school, too. Support #FreeSoftware u.fsf.org/32h

@swaggboi I really want a "dumb" appliance store. My fridge should keep things cold, my toaster warm things up, my printer put ink on thin slices of dead tree, and my TV show whatever video stream I send it. None of these need to reach out over the network. Please sell me well made, well functioning, single use devices, that serve their purpose well.

Should libraries run search engines? It seems that the original point of a library was to organize human knowledge and culture for the public benefit. The benefit has been great, but libraries aren't the main tool for finding information now. Search engines are. The notion that a library needs to be for books only is an arbitrary limitation. This oversight allowed corporations to move into that traditionally non-profit role, and I'm not convinced they've done a particularly good job.

This is what's wrong with the tech industry. The expectation that one should give their free time *EVERY DAY* or you're somehow "not passionate".

My response to that would be fuck you and your shitty fucking culture.

My kids and family are FAR more important to me than your ridiculous expectations.

Before joining Mastodon had you participated or were active on BBS (dial-up) or forums (vBulletin style) in the past?

Boosts are appreciated for better sample sizes.

Loving GNOME 42 so far.

However, what’s that “<app> is ready” notification when you want to open something (e.g., show a downloaded file from the browser in Files?)

I really don’t care to know that the app is ready and then click on a notification to have the app show. Just show me the app! 👀

Colleges should run their own ActivityPub servers and create a life-long social network for their students, faculty, alumni.

Is anything like this happening anywhere?

#Germany's motor lobby calls for more walking, #cycling, public transport & to not drive for short journeys. This is in response to the Russian energy crisis, to reduce consumption.

"For many short journeys, driving by car makes no sense. On other routes you can also use public transport" - #ADAC president Christian Reinicke.

I just realized I haven't seen a "promoted tweet" in 24 hours.

I could get used to this.
