Hi friendos, here's a reminder that furries and otherkin are valid.
I think this continues to be a good read: https://medium.com/@keisisqrl/dear-fellow-trans-people-lay-off-otherkin-9787ccf6725c
"The biggest lie tech people tell themselves — and the rest of us"
"They see facial recognition, smart diapers, and surveillance devices as inevitable evolutions. They’re not."
By Rose Eveleth
us politics, harrowing, bad, facebook, social media, it's no longer just "the algorithm"
2 days ago: audio is leaked saying that zuckerberg is extremely mad over the democratic candidates trying to push for breaking up facebook
6 hours ago: facebook quietly changes policy about false and misleading info, saying political ads are no longer fact-checked. at about the same time Trump begins to put up false and misleading ads
it's no longer "the algorithm", social media is being intentionally manipulated to push for political situations where the rich stay in power
It's not fire, it's capitalism: 5 things we can do for the Amazon
The following text is a translation from :
"The fires that devastate the lung of the planet (#amazonas) are mainly due to climate change and a bad management of the Bolsonaro government of environmental policies. Scientists predict that we will exceed 1.5 degrees of global warming by 2030, the consequences of fires in the Amazon affect us all on the planet. But what is behind this, what responsibility can I assume and what can I do to change it?"
Why don't I visit webcomic.name more often? It is so wholesome and great and, as the kids would say, on point. Hypocrisy is the worst, innit? #webcomicname
I deleted my Facebook-account years ago, but my latest job (not tech related) uses Facebook for communication.
I created a new account, I have no photos of me there and I share nothing, no posts or anything.
A few days ago they suspended my account for no reason at all and required me to upload an ID of me. I ended up creating a new account days later.
Even though I have nothing of value there I have never felt so powerless. It made me appreciate the ethical fediverse even more.
Still trying to get comfy on here.
