It's been interesting to watch capitalism slowly doing away with private property. Most commercial software is moving towards subscriptions, devices are locked from their users, cars can only be serviced by authorized dealers. Nobody actually owns anything, they just rent it.

konfederacji szczerze nie lubię, ale to co dzisiaj zrobiło TVP to kpina.
- złamali prawo prasowe przez komentowanie wyroku zaraz przed i po pokazaniu sprostowania
- zwiększyli DPI z 9 razy specjalnie na ten jeden raz, żeby tekst o określonej w wyroku treści był mały i nie do odczytania
- zmienili treść sprostowania, zmieniając np. "nieprawdziwe" na "niepełne"
- na koniec materiału, który miał być przeprosinami, przeszli jeszcze do szczucia na partię

The lite version of #Fedilab should come soon on #Fdroid (only).
This version is more focused on privacy. Some features can't be changed:
- Built-in browser with automatic updates of the tracking database.
- Nitter and Invidious (but instances can be customized).
- Most important in-app features are still there.
Without minification the size is around 10Mb.

Last week, before list numbers for parties in Poland's forthcoming elections were selected by lottery by the Polish National Electoral Commission, a PiS candidate was already displaying banners that said PiS's list number was 2.

Today, list numbers were announced. PiS's is 2.

#ShowerThought the very existence of password managers seems like a sign that we're doing computer security wrong.

@matthieuaubry watched 'The Great Hack' and found it super interesting. It tells the story of how Cambridge Analytica helped influence the US elections as well as Brexit (and other events), by exploiting FB ads and data. On

People might also not know Mastodon is not the only type of social media sites that interact here.

There is also:

@pixelfed (Like Instagram)

Peertube (Like YouTube)

(You can see how they look in the pictures in the order that they are mentioned)

You can find more decentralized social media platforms at fediverse.party/

The thing people miss about #desktop #Linux is: it's not that Linux users are using Linux purely for ideology, in most cases. If I could get everything done on Windows in a similar amount of time with a similar level of satisfaction, I probably would.

But I can't. I can't use a tiling WM. I can't use BTRFS or ZFS for my external storage cluster. I can't have a decent package manager or functioning containerization or a command-line driven workflow.

"Does your face recog work at night?"
"At night you need infrared, and cross-match to normal photos. It's less reliable. We have a new system with silent autonomous drones, capturing hi-res 3D models using sonar."
"You've made cyborg bats?"
"Only need a non-trademarked name."
