“Surveillance capitalism” isn’t a corruption of (an otherwise virtuous) capitalism. It is a precise means of describing modern-day capitalism. Opposing it doesn’t mean simply opposing surveillance, it means opposing capitalism.

capitalism 

pro capitalism folks, I have an idea.

Encourage a norm of 20 hour work weeks and higher wages so people have more time to shop and buy things.

People can make things in their free time and maybe sell those too causing more competition and better markets.

we need 20 hours work weeks and higher wages to save capitalism, spread the word!

take on leftist unity 

honestly I don't care much if you believe in a violent revolution or achieving anarchism through unions or if you're a kind of tankie that believes in a transitory state that withers away, etc

we're still way too far from the point where that will matter

but if you're the "warcrimes are fine actually" kind of tankie, i do /not/ want to have anything to do with that

:boost_ok: :ablobcatwave: Please boost this post if you would like the EFF to join the fediverse. :ablobcatbongo:

In a survey the EFF sent me, I suggested they create an account on the fediverse, so they can reach more supporters and support innovative free software that promotes interoperability among platforms, something they've advocated for in the past, too.

If you can boost this post, maybe I'll be able to show them that there are quite a few users who would like them here!

The EFF is the infamous nonprofit organisation that fights for privacy, government transparency, and digital freedom. Their fight is very important, and the EFF is very special to me. https://www.eff.org/about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_Frontier_Foundation

You can see some of their work here https://www.eff.org/work

In the meantime, you can follow @eff, which is an unofficial mirror of their Twitter.

Do you use an RSS/Atom reader?

Boosts appreciated for sample size :)

Lately I've been noticing a lot of user interfaces that used to have informational messages have been replaced with commanding messages.

One such example is how "battery low" has been replaced with "charge your phone". When juxtaposed, the latter honestly seems a bit disrespectful. Tell me the status; I will decide what to do with my device.

Does your “design thinking” start at the business model or is it bullshit?

If your business model is extractive, exploitative, and otherwise unethical to begin with, you’re not practicing design, you’re practicing decoration: the craft of disguising an otherwise unpalatable product or service to trick people into using (being used by) it.

Listening to punk rock while printing and binding zines is quite the mood.

my take on pronouns in bio 

Your bio is a place for you to describe yourself in any way that you want within the rules of the platform or instance. It is the most essential part of your profile for leaving an impression and giving people an idea of who you are. You are free to decide whether you want it to follow a set format, be detailed or vague, literal or artistic. And nobody has authority over you to choose how you describe yourself, aside from the platform or instance administrators.

This is a long shot, but I want to put the power of social media and federation to the test.

My son wants to become a commercial airline pilot when he’s grown up. It would be awesome if we could find a commercial pilot in the fediverse that we can follow and ask questions of.

If everyone who reads this could boost it, it would be much appreciated and it would mean the world to my son if he could get in touch with a real-life commercial pilot! ✈️

Hey @seek! I was just brainstorming about something to write based on your comments. Thinking about other anonymity networks that I hadn't written tutorials for yet.
