We need to either regulate or bust up corporations (like Ticketmaster) that corner markets. But to do so, we must get big money out of politics.

When monopoly power is combined with political clout, the public gets taken for a ride.

Chicago’s skyline takes the crown

I shot this a while back on an aerial flight. The fact that the shadows were almost perfectly perpendicular to the lakefront (part of the shoreline anyway) was pure luck. But when I flipped the photo, it turned into a much more dramatic image

Ok, it's been 3-weeks since I've joined Mastodon and here's my take away so far:

1. White folx prioritizing their fuckin feeling OVER their IMPACT of their racist behavior

2. I'm thankful that I was strategic in joining the instance I'm on because, due to their efforts, they've DEMONSTRATED their INTENT to prioritize voices like mine

3. As a Black women, there's no truly safe space for us

For comparison just @FSF thanks to #RMS 's conference in Brno, Czechia in MUNI with the help of free software advocates were able to basically replace proprietary software in education institutions state-wide and all that for next to free.

These are instructions how you can block content you might not want to see. Welcome to the fedirvese where people can make up their own minds. I personally as a traditional liberal (not the new corporate oxymoron form) like to see everything except spam and make up my own mind.

I took all the domains from block list and put it in a csv file that can be imported so you can block all hateful instances.
Download it here

How to import

  • go to settings
  • click on import & export
  • click on import
  • under import select domain blocking list
  • then select the csv file you downloaded
  • click upload

A reminder for anyone new to mastodon who might not be happy with some of the racist and bad actors out there on other servers... Just import the fediblock list to your personal blocks and you will be safe from the vast majority of bad actors.

Its pretty funny seeing lots of people running from twitter to join mastadon to get away from what they perceive as misinfofmation.

I hope freespeach reigns.. you can hit the ignore buttons. but leave the content that I might want to consider alone.. even if I do not agree I might want to consider how to debate it.

“It is a very serious matter for democratic countries to spy on their politicians, or their journalists – and to do so for years. It’s a grave abuse of human rights” - rapporteur @PieterOmtzigt, opening today's PACE #spyware hearing.

Obligatory reminder, to everyone working on #FOSS #FLOSS #opensource projects

You're making alternatives because the status quo is BAD!!!! Don't use corporate platforms to promote your "Free" projects.

You are inadvertently forcing others to also use those platforms, which we all want to escape from!

If you insist that you go where the people are, at the very least maintain a presence on the open alternatives, so we can migrate away from them.

Please and thank you!

Please Boost!!!
