I had trouble reading some of the dark text on dark background in - so I created a small user theme that gives it a bit more contrast and helps me see it without squinting.

You can get it too from the link above, and install it with the Stylish browser addon.

Because Stylish themes are bound to domains, you may need to edit the theme and add your instance's domain before you can enable it. I added some, but there are so many instances out there!

this is a about de-centralization of the web.

Thanks for all the ideas yesterday! So, #peertube mascot, round 2: A, B or C?

The more the laws diverge from our needs, the harder we will ignore them and work around them. Stuff like this hurts those the most who try to or have to follow laws, like small organizations and companies or less resourceful individuals. We will work around this, break this, ignore this, just as we did and do with copyright, patents, freedom of speech or assembly limitations, etc. #Article13 #Article11

After #GDPR the European Parliament is working hard at turning the Internet into AOL2.0.

#Article13, the #CensorshipMachines, has been adopted by @EP_Legal with a 15:10 majority. Again: We will take this fight to plenary and still hope to #SaveYourInternet

#Article13 adopted. European Parliament's Legal Affairs committee (JURI) demands companies to automatize and systematize the mass-surveillance and mass-censorship of their users in name of archaic copyright... next step: plenary vote. #FuckThatEU #CopyWrong #CopyFight

We already know that automated content filters don't work. They put absolute power over content in the hands of a system that is opaque and broken.

A couple of days ago YouTube took down all of the Blender Foundation's videos from the Blender Foundation's channel due to a copyright claim by... the Blender Foundation.

The BF is an official YT partner, but days later they still cannot get a straight answer from YT about what is going on:

ça marche presque ! ...
the Bamboo Walker is nearly working, I just need to separate the legs further apart (so 2 axes) because now the step length is too long compared to the body.

another pair of legs is ready to be mounted ...

(yet another multiheaded unnecessary side project I can't stop doing ...
Well... I have bamboo in the garden so, at least it's free ;p )

Prvi toot z novo tipkovnico. Takole zgleda (za na hr obalo :)

EU spreminja avtorsko pravo.
To samo po sebi ni slaba novica, toda nekatera določila bodo uničila internet, kot ga poznamo.

danesjenovdan.si/copyleft/

Če želimo, da EU pri spremembah avtorskega prava na prvo mesto postavi državljanke in državljane namesto založniškega kapitala, moramo skupaj povzdigniti glas. Odločitev je v rokah evropskih poslank in poslancev, nagovorimo jih!

The two fundamental problems in computer science are cache invalidation; naming things; and avoiding off-by-one errors.

tukaj sem, ker verjamem, da spleta in interneta ne smemo prepustiti korporacijam, ki jih zanima le, kako nas čim bolje vnovčiti pri pralcih možganov.

vredno se je boriti za avtonomna, distribuirana in lastna omrežja. naj bo javno javno in zasebno zasebno, umetna inteligenca pa naj služi ljudem, ne delničarjem.

hvala vsem, ki vas lahko tukaj berem in ki berete mene!
