@Hello57 @Victoriak I, too, have always been disappointed by the screen Marlowe.

**Life lesson from an old man**: If you have EARNED something - like a union membership, trade license, motorcycle endorsement, amateur radio licenses - keep them current. Do what it takes ($, continuing education, etc) - it will be much harder (or impossible) to get them in the future if you need them. Budget your time and $ for this - categorize it as "insurance".

You've heard of "I don't want your fucking app."

Now get ready for "I don't want to join your fucking Discord server just to get basic information that should be on a proper website instead of hidden away in the archives of a fucking chatroom."

Very cool: Animals are key to restoring the world's forests, long-term data set reveals

Our tendency to be literal, concrete and thing-focused is boundless. In response the world keeps trying to show us, it’s *relations* all the way down.

> In order to consolidate their power over their citizens, states rolled out policies to increase the legibility of the population they ruled over; they started to require that everyone take a surname in order to uniquely identify them to the state in censuses and tax documents. As you can imagine, this didn't go over well; the historical record documents intense resistance, in some cases even open rebellion.

Yesterday I gave a talk at BSides on what IT security professionals can learn from Safety literature [1]

Basically, it's about what's termed "Safety II", i.e. "Ensuring that things go right", rather than "Avoiding that things go wrong" (as Hollnagel would say).

After two years of negotiations with Microsoft, the joint committee of the German federal data protection authority and 17 state regulators (DSK) published a devastating statement that essentially says that organizations currently cannot use MS365 in a lawful way under the GDPR.

Just scaled up #Metatext’s push notification server for the first time

It’s still completely affordable for me to run but feel free to tip at https://opencollective.com/metabolist

The thing about Twitter is that it really lacks a lot of the features you'd expect from a true Mastodon replacement.

For example, there's no way to edit your toots (which they, confusingly call "tweets"—let's face it, it's a bit of a silly name that's difficult to take seriously).

"Tweets" can't be covered by a content warning. There's no way to let the poster know you like their tweet without also sharing it, and no bookmark feature.

There's no way to set up your own instance, and you're basically stuck on a single instance of Twitter. That means there's no community moderators you can reach out to to quickly resolve issues. Also, you can't de-federate instances with a lot of problematic content.

It also doesn't Integrate with other fediverse platforms, and I couldn't find the option to turn the ads off.

Really, Twitter has made a good start, but it will need to add a lot of additional features before it gets to the point where it becomes a true Mastodon replacement for most users.
