Yo, straight men get on my fucking nerves. And I say this as a straight man.

The constant performance dudes feel the need to engage in is exhausting.

Just... be straight dude. Nobody cares.

Tech companies don't want to pay senior, knowledgeable engineers what they're worth so they claim they're over-qualified.

Which results in more of our tech being designed and implemented by people who are under-qualified without proper mentor-ship and industry-specific history lessons.

The entire industry has it's eyes closed as to the real cost of software. Right now, the consumers are paying for that cost through intangible side-effects which become tangible once democracy fails, cars crash…

Mastodon doesn't punish you for living your life.

It doesn't actively take metrics of your interactions to gauge your social or cultural capital.

Never will it demand that you post this much to be or stay relevant to the community, disappearing into the void if you don't meet The Quota.

So please, for the love of toot, take breaks whenever you feel you need to! We'll be here when you get back! :patcat:

Better Blocker for iOS 12 is now live.

better.fyi

Two weeks ago, I wrote that we wanted to radically simplify Better and widen its reach (ar.al/2018/08/27/better-blocke). With this release, we took the first steps towards that goal. We distilled the app to its essentials (taking it from 44MB to 11MB in the process) & lowered the price to the lowest tier on the App Store ($0.99/£0.99/€1.09).

Details: ar.al/2018/09/14/better-simple

Here’s to bringing the Better web to more people.

Meanwhile, the EU has voted to kill the Internet as we know it and possibly aid in creating an even bigger surveillance machine in the process.

Civil disobedience is the way forward on this one. We redouble our efforts to create decentralised alternatives and if they’re deemed illegal by this myopic legislation, so be it. Fuck ’em. We go to jail if we need to.

If you had any illusions that the battle for personhood and human rights would be easier in our age, think again.

How birdsite feels: I need to be more popular so people will care about me :blobsad:

How the fediverse feels: I want to find new friends and share stuff with them, because everyone already cares :blobnom:

Since moving here, my mental attitude has improved drastically. I no longer feel the need to win some arbitrary popularity contest to feel validated.

Thanks for being here, guys. :blobheart:

Global Warming is a serious threat to humanity. It is primarily caused by waste products from fossil fuel usage.

I don't usually see people over here talking about it. And I saw this story on how peoples behaviors don't match the severity of the threat.

For what its worth, I have turned down several opportunities to go to conferences because it would involve flying.

Have a uterus? Well, you'll be standing in a giant isle of locked doors where you have to hit a button and then stand amd wait for someone to allow you the privilege of buying something.

I stood around for 10 minutes and gave up.

What the fuck is happening in the trash country? THIS IS A GROCERY STORE?!?!
