the real problem with discord that makes them truly evil is that they sell their solution as being something that provides self-determination.

when you move your community to discord, you start a what they call a "discord server."

to be clear, there is not really any such thing as a "discord server," this is just marketing terminology for group functionality.

they call it a discord "server" on purpose: they want to communicate the idea that you have full autonomy on your own "discord server," when in reality you are still at the mercy of discord as a service provider. this is truly evil, this goes beyond a lack of transparency to actively lying to potential users. not even Slack does this.

we must build real alternatives to these predatory services.

You get annoyed by having to enter your #Mastodon handle each time you want to follow/interact with someone on a "foreign" page?

I got that too, but I've made a little add-on to solve this "problem". 😃

It automatically "redirects" you to your own instance.

You probably hate systemd because you think it's all about "boot fast no bash" - but it can do so much more you probably had no idea about. reddit.com/r/linux/comments/bs

A dragon landed outside the village. "Feed me," it demanded.
The elders conferred, then one stepped up. "What do you wish to eat?"
"Eh? Nobody has ever asked... What is there, apart from what every village feeds me?"
"Er... We have potatoes?"
"Then feed me these 'potatoes'!"

Japan is running out of phone numbers - because they require all IoT devices to have one. Whyyyyy?

Die Firmen kommen in den Genuss von billigsten Vollzeit-Arbeitskräften.

Den Preis dafür zahlen der Staat, die Eltern, und zu guter letzt wir Azubis selbst.

Wirtschaft first, alles andere second.

Europ. Provider lobbyieren gerade für die Legalisierung der Deep Packet inspection. Wir haben deshalb mit zahlreichen Wissenschaftern und NGOs einen Brief unterzeichnet, der dagegen argumentiert! Die Netzneutralität und unsere Privatsphäre sind in Gefahr! boingboing.net/2019/05/15/dpi-
