Falls es irgendwer nicht mitgekriegt hat: Als Reaktion auf Wien schlägt Österreich vor, dass die Verschlüsselung von Signal und WhatsApp staatlich geknackt wird.

Effekt: alle werden überwacht und Islamisten benutzen weiter Telegram.

Try to remember that some people have a more complicated relationship with pronouns than you do.

Encouraging people in give pronouns in their bio is nice, but try not to be so heavy handed. It's rude to insist.

Instead, consider normalising the use of they/them for anyone who doesn't explicitly state their pronouns.

To all the anarchists who have recently arrived. In case anyone wasn't sure, the stuff you post on the fediverse is not private, it is available to all to see, the state included. That means the nodes where activists congregate are also patrolled. This is not a place where you should organize actions. Use other, encrypted tools for that.

If you're wondering if a tiny group of people can put together an enormous festival in just 3 months, the answer is *technically* yes, but we are still taking today as an extra needed day of rest.
While we enjoy sitting on our local parks, you may enjoy our still-running exhibition:

About ethics on funding, would you be open to get funds and become a fellow at Bill&Melinda Gates, Chan Zuckerberg or any similar foundation?
How could you justify getting support from groups associated to tons of unethical practices?
(No, I didn't get any found from them, pure curiosity mainly when see open source and open science projects announcing the grants/supports...)

I'm a "tech guy" on a lot of teams. My major skill is confidence. If I don't know how to do something, I'll type whatever keywords I can think of into DuckDuckGo and keep trying things until they work. I usually have no idea what I'm doing before starting on a new task. I like doing things I haven't done before.

If you can search the web and can be comfortable with some ambiguity, you could do this too.

A lot of women have been told this approach is insufficient. That was a lie to oppress you.

Can anyone point me towards research on 'ritual' and 'online spaces'? How can 'ritual', usually tied with spectacle, performance, and physical presence in a group, be facilitated through online space/s, where bodies are not physically in the same space?

Any ideas, thoughts, pointers to essays or books greatly appreciated!
