Hello,
I am new to the instance but not new to Mastodon. I used to have a personal account with which I learned how the Fediverse works, now I would like to start using it as well. I figured I prefer to have a impersonal account, so here I am.
I don't like to blast out self-descriptions, I'm an ever-forming being, I rather would share topics & stuff I am passionate about/interested in, although I will probably forget about a couple.

I love sports, I follow and and I watch ; naturally I don't agree with capitalism surrounding their being.
I am passionate about tech & services. I am and I oppose violence/any harm of life.
I listen to various kinds of music, being the dearest to my heart (ears). And I guess just a list of others - I love reading hikes&nature, and -tech. At times I play and to lose my last two remaining braincells. Merci à tous.

If you are in the EU and have not yet heard of this vote. There is a European's citizens Initiative for a Universal Basic Income. This is an EU binding vote. eci.ec.europa.eu/014/public/#/ . There is only 5 days left and over 700,000 votes still needed. Please vote.

The fact that wearing animal hides and furs is still in fashion tells me that our civilization is not quite as advanced as we'd like to think.

OH: "What about smashing the capitalist system?"
"Sounds good, but I'm currently to busy working"

The right of revolution, which tyrants, in mockery, accord to mankind, is no legal right under a government; it is only a natural right to overturn a governmentent. The government itself never acknowledges this right.

kids are great because you can tell them that one guy has more money than it would take to feed the entire world or that there’s more empty homes than houseless people and they understand why that is absurd and evil.

Oh, this is sweet. @bitwarden now supports integration with email fowarding services SimpleLogin, AnonAddy, and Firefox Relay when setting up a new entry with the username generator.

The police are making more anarchists than I could do in ten years.

I wonder if it's just me or if other people are also noticing how the big corporate side of the internet is totally broken.

Google search results all lead to pages that don't exist or are paywalled or non-functional without allowing tracking.

Amazon listings are mostly scams, reviews are for totally different products.

I used to look at these things to compare with what I was doing elsewhere, but now when I do it just seems kafkaesque how broken it all is.

I know this sounds like a weird idea, but it is almost instrumental to Mastodon :mastodon: , and the Fediverse :fediverse: as a whole's growth:
Proper integration with PeerTube :peertube: , Mobilizion, Funkwale, etc. to the point of being able to run all of them off of one server, access them from eachother's interfaces and log in with a single account.
This is technically supported by ActivityPub's client-server protocol, but nobody cares about that part of the spec because :blobcatgooglyshrug:

A lot of social media feels like the same 20 posts, recycled endlessly

Why is your privacy fucked? You should go ask at the Computers, Privacy and Data Protection conference where the brightest minds in the field meet, sponsored by Google and Meta.

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

I really wish I felt like I was part of a community, but I don't get that sense from much of anywhere

What do you get when you take an image every minute with a telescope tracking at the sidereal rate during a lunar eclipse? Well you get an image of the Earth’s shadow.

It's impossible for a white person to believe in capitalism and not believe in racism. You can't have capitalism without racism.
