The two most toxic attitudes at work are two sides of the same coin: "that's not my job" and "I can't say no"

"that's not my job" is a complete disregard for being part of a team or an organization. No work is beneath you.

*this does not mean you have to do every task you're asked*: "I can't say no" is *also* a complete disregard for being part of a team or an org. Not everything is a good use of your time and energy 1/…

📢 Exit relay operators, we need you to upgrade to Tor as soon as possible! This is the first stable Tor release with support for congestion control, which will result in significant performance improvements for users. Upgrade to now.

Rewatching "We Steal Secrets". Regardless of your opinion on Assange, we need more organizations like WikiLeaks to show the Publix what is being decided on their behalf behind closed doors.

People are concerned that #Mastodon admins can read their DMs.

Folks, should we tell them about Yahoo Mail, Gmail or even telecom companies like AT&T and Verizon, which are thousands of times worse when sent via SMS?

If you want true DM messaging, go to a much encrypted messaging system like #XMPP or #Matrix.

The Chinese government is not only mistreating Uyghurs within China's borders, it is hunting them down abroad — with help from countries like Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates — to clamp down on criticism of Beijing’s repression of Muslim minorities.

Publish on your Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere

Your website is your home. Always publish your content there then link to it on other platforms like fedi or copy it to the other platform and link back to the original.

Also use that as your general information hub. Instead of saying "my fedi handle is ____, my XMPP handle is ____, my telegram handle is ____, etc.", just say "my website is ____, everything you need is there". It's
much more convenient.

Your website is your slice of the internet. Make use of it

And if you don't have a website but want one, DM me and I'll help get you set up

Did you know there are centralized alternatives to the #Fediverse?

They are great!
Instead of being developed by volunteers for the community they are developed for millionaires with the sole purpose of getting them more money and influence over the "users".

They contain ads and algorithms, so you don't have to decide, what you want to see, but you get to see what makes you addicted, so you view more ads, buy more stuff and thereby support the capitalist system that we all love.

Instead of anonymity you get to enter your phone number and other form of identification, which totally helps against hate speech, right?

I could go on with advantages, but I think it's best you check them out for yourselves.

In the year 2000 I argued on national public radio that hacktivism was justified, and to be expected.

Many of you lost the way.

We are here not simply to destroy, but to be the midwife to a better future.

The future we were promised.

Destruction is not the goal, as fun as you may find it.

Any suitably capable installer / patcher / updater is indistinguishable in its system call behaviour from malware.

And will be treated as such by your oranization's anti-malware heuristics, which are a "protection" method that is inexplicably popular again despite failing totally in the 1990s.

This is happy news that is looooong overdue!
