The Silence Is Deafening
(good read for us fedinauts)
northern europe has decimated their populations knowledge about indigenous rights. they'd rather pretend its an american problem and fuck over Sámi and Karelian people. meanwhile americans think scandinavia is a socialist paradise. indigenous people from europe are alive and well and we don't have our land and rights #DeathToEurope
there's been quite a bit of research on the cognitive/health benefits of multilingualism, but I think the framing tends to be backwards. multilingualism isn't a bonus, but the default (historically, anthropologically, biologically). our species developed multilingual, and still is everywhere not too damaged by colonial steamrollers. monolingualism is a v recent development, an emergent artifact of a capitalist+racist society.
so we should be talking about the cognitive damage of monolingualism.
Fedi - I could use some help.
Recently I have been playing a bit of a digital archeologist and exploring websites of late 90s/early 2000s.
I have grown up in Poland, and we had a few internet focused magazines, that would include copies of websites on a CD. I bet other countries had similar publications.
This is where I need help. What magazines from your country included offline versions of websites? English preferred, but I am happy to explore any language. Boosts greatly appreciated!
A warm, time zone-aware #deathToAmerica to all my fedifrens! 🤗
The open-source model treats open source as a utilitarian model for better programming, while the free software model is adamant that it's an issue of individual freedom. Both models are open to exploitation; open source because it explicitly holds itself out to be useful to corporations, and free software because it includes, not just incidentally but foundationally, profit-making corporations in its freedoms. https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html.en Both deal only incidentally or poorly with the community that arise out of the development and use of software.
@peertube now has a plugin to use shared instance blocklists: https://framagit.org/framasoft/peertube/official-plugins/-/tree/master/peertube-plugin-auto-mute
(Another plugin is also available for shared video blocklists.)
Wondering if there should also be the option to use “passlists” instead, to not be automatically exposed to new abusive instances...
The next period of development is focused on moderation tools. Hopefully this is a significant step towards making it easier to keep the fash away.
Here's an idea: every time you feel like sharing a new exciting app / tech / program, don't limit yourself to looking at its features. But also look at:
- Who is developing it? Is the team diverse? What kind of organisation is it?
- What resources are they relying on?
- Have they, **from the beginning**, published a code of conduct, and/or released a statement that specifies that fascists, racists, queerphobes, patriarchs, down-punchers are not welcome to use or contribute to the tool?
