Sometimes I feel like I'm watching the world burn from the sidelines. Without popcorn.

Please, Americans, if you do nothing else today, then please take action against EARN-IT.

noearnitact.org/call/?link_id=

We discussed it on the show, but it would destroy online privacy, crypto, etc. This is no joke. Please, take action TODAY as it goes up for a vote July 2nd.

If you love Free Software or Privacy, this bill has to die!

Someone asked Angela Davis why she specified that the 8 richest people in the world are men and 7 of them are white when they felt that the actual issue is that there are 8 people who own like half of the world's wealth.

She replied with one of the greatest explanations of intersectionality theory I've ever heard. I can't transcribe the whole thing in this toot, it was like over 5 minutes long, but the thrust was "Where do you see capitalism without racism?

It's not enough to just dismantle capitalism, it's not enough to just smash the state, unless the work is actively being done to right the social ills that are upholding these things. If we replaced capitalism with Full Communism tomorrow, we would have Racist Communism.

Dead saxy hack: palm pilot collapsible keyboard to USB conversion.

github.com/cy384/ppk_usb

These were great little keyboards, if needing a desk or hardback behind them. They collapse into purse size nicely.

@alexandria "Situational awareness is key"
That... I don't know if that's just irony or if the devs are deliberately mocking people for not being able to use their shitty keybinds.

@alexandria Wow. Having the official game be worse than the demo is quite the feat.

Happy Autistic Pride Day! remember: autism is not a disease or a disorder to be cured: it is a spectrum of differences in the human brain more akin to a disability like deafness. Listen to autistic peoples self-advocacy, not the arguments of non-autists who want to eliminate them
