I switched jobs. So I have to switch accounts. I am @cz8s from now on
Here's the best thing I've seen this week, you're welcome!
MOBILIZON (beta) IS OUT! Free, open source, decentralized, (soon) federated, privacy by design software to allow us to organize freely. So proud to be part of it!
"Huge demo in London (police official figure is 22,000) in support of Rojava against Turkey’s fascist invasion"
If you're ever wondering how to console me when antisemitism has me down, talk to your coworkers about forming a union, talk to your neighbors about how you'd have there back during the revolution, sticker your neighborhood with anticapitalist and antifascist propaganda. Build the World to Come with me.
Ich muss echt kotzen wenn ich lese wie jetzt alle wieder total bestürzt und überrascht sind, dass wir - ganz plötzlich, und ohne dass das irgendjemand vorher hätte ahnen können - ein Problem mit Nazis haben. Leute, das ist schon lange nicht mehr glaubwürdig. Entweder seid Ihr heuchlerische Lügner oder Ihr habt immer wieder die Augen davor verschlossen - in beiden Fällen seid Ihr Teil des Problems! 😡
At this point, understanding computers isn't even about understanding the difference between GOTO and GOSUB or knowing what TCP/IP stands for - or even *is*. It's about understanding power. If you buy a laptop off Amazon, boot into Windows, log into Facebook, and check your Gmail, you're entering into exploitative power relationships where you - like the workers who made the laptop, sold you the laptop, delivered the laptop, the workers who manually moderate your Facebook feed, like the miners who dug up the copper and cobalt - are at the bottom.
Much like a job where you exchange your time and labor for capital, you are exchanging your personal relationships for convenience.
In order to get out from under this, you *do* need to educate yourself somewhat. You gotta know how certain things work. You don't have to become a programmer or hacker though. It's not the fucking Matrix. You just have to understand things enough to manipulate them and know where you stand.
We have silenced the server pawoo.net for consistent and repeated spam/bot issues coming from their instance. You can still follow and see content from them if you are already engaged, but you won't be able to do so going forward.
We'll revisit this decision should they get a hold on their user base.
"Hamburg hat eine wunderbare Abmahnfalle gebaut: Der Hafen wird blau angestrahlt, Fotowettbewerb ausgerufen und wer dann Fotos dieser "Kunstinstallation" bei Instagram oder sonstwo online veröffentlicht, bekommt eine Rechnung."
Don't just read the link and go "I can't strike," there's also coordinated protests and other ways to get involved.
As the website says, "[o]ur house is on fire - let's act like it."
(Boost this or a better call to action, or write your own, please.)
Did you know that #linux isn't electronic? It is mad of pipes, socks, files, handles, tar, even evil spirits called demons. There's only one electron, but it's big and slow!
In response to that one person, who wrote a blog post about how the CCC has become too political and how they didn't go to #CCCamp2019 because of an "Antifa or GTFO" atmosphere, I designed these.
Kinda wanna print some t-shirts. Anyone know a good place to do collective orders?
