Liberal Kitty: I love Democracy
Sab: What do you mean?

LK: I get to elect leaders who represent me & my interests! Democracy is the best
S: Sounds great

S: So you get to vote on who your boss is @ work, right?
LK: No of course not

S: Then you must be able to vote for your supervisors or managers?
LK: No

S: Can you vote on how you work, business hours & policies, how the profits are used, stock options?
LK: No! No worker has any say in any of that

Weil gerade wieder ein „macht das web JavaScript frei aus Gründen*“ Toot herum ging, hätte ich mal wieder 1 Frage zu #webdev.

Gibt es gerade aktuelle und nutzbare Ansätze für das Erstellen und Pflegen von dynamischen Seiten, ganz ohne JS? Also kA, JS nicht voraussetzende CMSse und Frameworks?

Gibt es Stichworte, Bewegungen und Trends, die ich mir anschauen könnte?

*ua: Accessibility, Ladezeiten, Sicherheit, Anpassbarkeit

At this point, understanding computers isn't even about understanding the difference between GOTO and GOSUB or knowing what TCP/IP stands for - or even *is*. It's about understanding power. If you buy a laptop off Amazon, boot into Windows, log into Facebook, and check your Gmail, you're entering into exploitative power relationships where you - like the workers who made the laptop, sold you the laptop, delivered the laptop, the workers who manually moderate your Facebook feed, like the miners who dug up the copper and cobalt - are at the bottom.

Much like a job where you exchange your time and labor for capital, you are exchanging your personal relationships for convenience.

In order to get out from under this, you *do* need to educate yourself somewhat. You gotta know how certain things work. You don't have to become a programmer or hacker though. It's not the fucking Matrix. You just have to understand things enough to manipulate them and know where you stand.
