Demnächst finden sie noch raus, dass Videoüberwachung keine Verbrechen verhindert, Verschlüsselungsverbote die Privatsphäre gefährden und die Spree tatsächlich Wasser führt.

Die finden ja alles raus, ALLES finden die raus.

RT @Tagesspiegel@twitter.com

+Exklusiv+ Die @polizeiberlin@twitter.com untersucht das #Sicherheitsempfinden. Erste Erkenntnis: Schwer bewaffnete Polizisten im öffentlichen Raum erzeugen ein Gefühl der Unsicherheit.

FOSS boys: phew I finally got my emails working on my phone, it took me a week, involved a soldering iron, and I had to write a patch for a library

Also FOSS boys: people choose the convenience of Apple/Google/Microsoft because they're lazy and stupid, anybody can switch to Arch and PostmarketOS and self-host everything

Imagine there existed a cooperative dedicated to bringing GNOME forward, and its members worked full time on polishing the ecosystem.

If the designers and engineers announced their projects, and a communication team kept you posted of progress.

Would you throw money at it? And how would you contribute?

The history of Black British gardeners is one of resistance.

From the transatlantic slave trade to Kew Gardens and the Chelsea Flower Show, the long history of Black horticulturists can’t be forgotten. gal-dem.com/the-history-of-bla

Throw away the idea that good people don't have racist and antisemitic preconceptions. Saying "I'm not racist!" is a little like saying "I don't have air in my lungs." Racism is in the air we breathe. The morality doesn't come into whether we were indoctrinated with racist ideas or not, because we are and it's not a matter of choice. The morality is in how we deal with our indoctrination. Do we deny it and double down to become complicit, or face it and dismantle it?

We live with racist ideas and we will die with them. But we can try to do better instead of clinging to the idea that we are Good People who do not need to learn or change. That's just bullshit.

It's Bandcamp Friday, and therefore a good opportunity to remind you of blackbandcamp.info , a collection of black artists searchable by name, genre, or location.

@GwenfarsGarden "ASU’s Hill says he’s not yet fully convinced that the female individual buried 9,000 years ago was actually a hunter in life. Burial goods, including hunting tools, could have been placed there because of symbolic or religious beliefs, he cautions."

Classic, just like what people would say about Viking era shieldmaidens "oh they were buried with a sword to symbolize social importance, not warrior status", until the found they one in Sweden who clearly died of an axe to the head. Such ridiculousness

Honestly, not only does the depiction of 'female' hunter have 'her' wearing pink, so many of these archaeologists and anthropologists are still so bloody reluctant to admit that current sexist ideas of social 'gender roles' might not be representative of the past.

Pinterest is search cancer

It has so completely invaded every image search, it's nearly impossible to find original sources and attribute photos without adding "-site:pinterest.*" (minus quotes). Even then, somehow, there are at least a handful of Pinterest results
