Fascinating post from Justin O’Beirne on Apple Maps changes in Northern California
We are preparing to release federation support and we want your feedback!
Can you think of any safety, privacy or security features that we haven't announced or already support?
We appreciate any ideas/feedback that can make more safe and secure. #pixelfed
@PawelOrzech Go to any list of users, like people who favourited a toot, then try scrolling past the end.
@PawelOrzech I’m not sure I can accept that judgement when I have a signing elephant and a hidden pool game.
@tootapp I generally like your Mastodon app best. I‘m missing one thing though: Is there a way to see the instance or federated timeline?

"The Japanese Man Who Saved 6,000 Jews With His Handwriting" by David Wolpe
"After the ceremony, in front of some 1,200 students, I spoke with his one remaining child, his son Nobuki, who arrived from Belgium to honor his father’s memory. He told me his father was “a very simple man. He was kind, loved reading, gardening and most of all children. He never thought what he did was notable or unusual.”"
y'all discord users ought to send an email to them saying you opt out of their arbitration clause in case they ever need sued
if you don't trust me read the eula yourself and decide if not having your right to sue them taken away is worth an email
(or, you know, maybe avoid the service entirely if you're able and willing)
why organize tech workers? Show more

1. no, i don't
2. without my knowledge or consent, things i've made have killed people, and my only options were to shrug or quit
3. work should not give you PTSD
4. worker rights and communal welfare is about more than pay. it's about power dynamics, accountability, representation, and taking the craft back from the profiteers who readily dispose of us
Is learning how to code a fundamental skill like reading and writing?
Or is it more like plumbing in that it is incredibly valuable to society but most people don’t need to understand it?
Or is it more like law where it’s good for kids to have a basic understanding of our legal system but they don’t really need any in-depth knowledge?
@tootleapp Hi! Do you plan on updating the app for the iPhone XS Max? Right now some of the text and especially the oversized keyboard look really weird.
@tootleapp On the Xs Max, there are several screens broken, like the picture and profile previews. Love the app in general though. https://mastodon.technology/media/k3H-mr3qAJCdbUcBHAk https://mastodon.technology/media/nFOl0Nmfb9dJXxyZpjY
Trying to understand why some people seem really ticked off at @wilw and it all seems to stem from reactionary twitter. The mob simply decided that Wil was bad.
I won't claim to know him, but everything I've ever heard him say tells me he's not a dick. Certainly far less of a dick than I am.
So if y'all would kindly stop nut-punching the man long enough to hear his side and MAYBE consider that nobody owes you any explanations anyway, maybe we could get the fuck along.
