Gig economy delivery apps claim that they're operating "two-sided markets," connecting delivery people with restaurants. Actually, they're useless, overcapitalized, predatory, money-haemorrhaging parasites.


Hi Fediverse 👋

to break the quietness of this account, here's a quick news flash:

- We added a list with Zoom alternatives 🤙

- We replaced some entries on "Bubbling under" 🔧

- We added Cryptpad to the Doodle list as it has a poll feature 🗒️

- Our DRM article has images now 🙃

- We have an Audible list in the pipeline 🎧

Thanks to @uniq for the nudge to write this! 😊👍

Also, it'd be great if in future, you attached a web link to this screenshot of a wall of text that is inaccessible to people who need screen readers, @DanielAndrewsMP

Statement from the Premier:

Show thread

"Venues will be required to take the contact details of every customer to assist in rapid contact tracing."

And how will that data be retained and destroyed? This feels like a bad plan...

Q: When I was 4, my sister was 2. I am now 44. How old is my sister?

Programmer: 44 - (4 - 2) = 42

So @Senator_Patrick asked DTA last week for the data from tests they conducted on the app, directly. He got this in response.

Not test data.

Some businesses are now offering discounts if you show them you have the CovidSafe app. Doesn’t this go against some coercion law?

Jesus Christ @zoom_us, you've apparently let a whole school in Chile sign up for a paid account using my e-mail address, because you never verified it. I went to create my own account, it said I had one, so I "forgot password", and now I own this school's admin account.

Wednesday: Govt said there's no link at all between uptake of the app & easing restrictions.
Friday: PM's update ...
encourage people to download the app to ensure we can protect Australians "and can continue to ease baseline restrictions" 🤷‍♀️

hey tech recruiters! you know that "pipeline" you're always talking about? well it's currently chock-full of talented, laid-off URMs

so you have no excuse

RT @chrisjrn
For $400M, Facebook have bought embed space on thousands of forums, corporate slacks, and piles of other places where they'd never have got an embed.


RT @alicegoldfuss
Whenever I post about D&I initiatives and hiring URMs, people say: but where do I find them?

And this is the wrong approach.

You are not hunting down and trapping URM candidates. You are building a habitat at your company and letting them find you.

One of the ways we are able to make the Kat Muscat Fellowship possible is from Kat's wonderful work 🌹DEFIANCE FEMINISM EMPATHY🌹. This collection of Kat's works previously published in @ArcherMagazine, @kyd_magazine & @VoiceworksMag is available here:

Part of the reason lockdown policy has been so utterly shitty for so many people is that in most countries it is founded on the expectations of white, heteronormative, nuclear-family, patriarchal, able-bodied bureaucrats and policy makers

I've been using NoScript, a browser extension that disables all JavaScript and lets you enable them on a server-by-server basis. Let me tell you about what I've learned and how broken the internet experience has been since doing this a few weeks ago.

So looks like due to Coronavirus-related cost cutting measures I’m back on the market.

Anyone looking to hire an Australian to do… whatever needs doing in a software stack? I can literally work everywhere from bare metal up to front-end. Ping me if I sound interesting?

RT @shalailah
This is a pretty stark contrast to the way the PM criticised young climate change protesters last year. They were told to "go back to school" and "be less activist".
