I finally deleted my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts.

I just wanted to share that I am feeling free, these social networks were a threat to my privacy and my mental health.

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

Check out our final report from our tech intern, Kofi "Rukky" Oghenerukevwe -- she was able to build, test, and publish a CiviCRM extension that will help the FSF receive Bitcoin and Litecoin payments! u.fsf.org/3bo

I'm really impressed with the stuff @matrixdotorg@twitter.com is building. It's such a flexible platform, and true p2p regardless of internet access will enable lots of new kinds of applications. This is great: matrix.org/blog/2021/05/06/int

"Sennheiser Sells Its Consumer Audio Business To Hearing Aid Specialist Sonova"


All I have to say is that I really hope that Sonova creates either a headphone line called "gun" because I'd love for someone to say that they just bought a Sonova Gun to stick in their ears.

necromantic book recommendation 

Another recommendation, in case you still did not read it for some reason.
It's about badass lesbian necromancers in space. You can find it by entering "lesbian necromancers in space" into a search engine of your choice.

Its first paragraph is: "IN THE MYRIADIC YEAR OF OUR LORD—the ten thousandth year of the King Undying, the kindly Prince of Death!—Gideon Nav packed her sword, her shoes, and her dirty magazines, and she escaped from the House of the Ninth."

Its second: "She didn’t run. Gideon never ran unless she had to. In the absolute darkness before dawn she brushed her teeth without concern and splashed her face with water, and even went so far as to sweep the dust off the floor of her cell. She shook out her big black church robe and hung it from the hook. Having done this every day for over a decade, she no longer needed light to do it by. This late in the equinox no light would make it here for months, in any case; you could tell the season by how hard the heating vents were creaking. She dressed herself from head to toe in polymer and synthetic weave. She combed her hair. Then Gideon whistled through her teeth as she unlocked her security cuff, and arranged it and its stolen key considerately on her pillow, like a chocolate in a fancy hotel."

Its middle paragraph:
“Nonagesimus,” she said slowly, “the only job I’d do for you would be if you wanted someone to hold the sword as you fell on it. The only job I’d do for you would be if you wanted your ass kicked so hard, the Locked Tomb opened and a parade came out to sing, ‘Lo! A destructed ass.’ The only job I’d do would be if you wanted me to spot you while you backflipped off the top tier into Drearburh.” “That’s three jobs,” said Harrowhark.”

Enjoy a quick little pencil #sketch of a mounted archer, from an indeterminate #RPG world where horses and bows are a popular method in some cultures for bringing home dinner.

@enkiv2 "

Any technology which is not an (alleged) currency and which incorporates anyway would always work better without it."

I have been saying (and proving) this for years, now.

"The thing we call money is just an information system for labor allocation. What actually matters is making goods and providing services. We should look at currencies from an information theory standpoint. Whichever has least error and latency will win." - Elon Musk


Our old doormat (lord of the rings theme) was getting a bit worn, so my dear wife bought a new one
