@entreprecariat That would be an interesting way to do it! Maybe there should be a separate box for scaling?

idea for a word processing functionality: normally when you select parts of the text with different font-size, the font-size box becomes blank allowing to set one font-size for all. I suggest to turn the option into percentage when two or more font-sizes are selected, so to scale dynamically the different text parts

Hey all!I am researching on the topic of federation and more focused on Mastodon. I would really appreciate if you could answer to this question:
— What made you move to Mastodon?
Thank you so much for all the help you can give me, love, Pedro

le vostre memorie più care non vanno affidate a nessun servizio, mai. copiate, scaricate tutto quello che ritenete importante.
comprate dischi e usb key, anche al supermercato, e tenete una copia in casa.
se non ritenete sicura la vostra casa, cercate un altro posto fidato.
se i contenuti sono _sensibili_, crittate i dischi.

«[…] se si riuscirà a fare un uomo di una creatura che lavora, non si potrà più farne un mero strumeno. Lasciate che cominci ad immaginare, a pensare, a cercare di fare una qualunque cosa degna di nota e la precisione della macchina sparirà. Verranno fuori la rozzezza, l'ottusità, la sua incapacità, errore su errore, onta su onta, pausa su pausa, ma emergerà anche tutta la sua grandezza di cui conosceremo la misura solo quando osserveremo le nubi stabilirsi su di lui: siano esse cupe o luminose, ci sarà una trasfigurazione dentro e fuori di lui.» John Ruskin, 1851

idea: applying McLuhan's laws of media to work/automation and therefor ask:

1. What does automation enhance?
2. What does automation make obsolete?
3. What does automation retrieve that had been obsolesced earlier?
4. What does automation reverse or flip into when pushed to extremes?

"We are not striking to fill our pockets. Rather, we are striking to pay for an increase in staff numbers that will improve the student/staff ratio; to provide better infrastructure for our students; to reduce the workload and frequency of burnouts among our colleagues; to improve our institutional capacities for self-government; and to improve the quality of Dutch education.

We are also striking to protest against the creeping mechanisms of market simulation and commercialization in education. We are striking to contest the incessant drive to turn schools and universities into supermarkets, with an unelected – and unaccountable – board of directors at the top, and a hapless army of consumers at the bottom."
