Reminder why switching.social does NOT recommend using Brave:

-Brave is a for-profit ad sales and cryptocurrency promotion company, funded by venture capital firms. Its primary purpose is to make money, not protect privacy.

-Top of the list of Brave's VC owners is Founders Fund, which is Peter Thiel's company ( web.archive.org/web/2019083116 )

-Peter Thiel is also the head of Palantir, which makes its money by spying on the general public ( bloomberg.com/features/2018-pa )

I'm just gonna say: The YouTube recommendation algorithm is FAR more harmful than any amount of channels full of hate speech. Optimizing for engagement is always going to give priority to these sorts of things. Engagement is a toxic metric.

I'm a huge fan of third wave psychology (I sometimes wish I'd persued it as a career), but this article presents a critique of the recent upsurge of "mindfulness" and assumptions it makes.

Going on holiday to see g/f / go windsurfing etc. Going on holiday from the UK, to then return to the UK, which is odd... Get anxious as hell with transitions and rootless. Tend to do stuff like geekily perseverate. Installed Sway today. Odd, it's great because, as promised, more or less identical to i3.

In the UK. In a co-working space in Brum playing with Flask. Back to Prague in September, I guess. Needed a break. Didn't expect the UK to be that but it is.

Setting up SMTP and bla bla and wondering for the nth time why I am still with ProtonMail.

i'm trying to fill my rss reader with more #blogs by actual people (instead of news stuff). anyone can recommend me interesting active blogs?

#literature, #philosophy, #linux, #opensource, #tech, etc and whatnot :D

boosting appreciated :)

Probably the thing that bothers me most about Twitter is how it's like a fly trap for smart people. It legitimizes the platform that so many thought leaders use it, even if those same people might privately (or publicly!) despite Twitter.

You can use Twitter as a write-only medium for your own mental health, but then you're still pushing the drug out to a large mass of readers.

#SyncThing is awesome! I wish I'd got around to installing it years ago, when I first heard about it. It solves the file sync problem proprietary tools like #DropBox solve, and #ownCloud/ #NextCloud aim to replace with #FreeCode. All purely #P2P, with no servers or #DNS required. I'm sharing folders between my laptops and some with a friend back in #Aotearoa (#NZ).
