Labels are beacons, not fences.

It’s not whether you’re in or out, they’re just milestones by which you set your tent.

The original post said ‘online’ but no. I have witnessed no community that didn’t eventually get harmful because of this style of grift.

The real unsolved question is how you get people to have empathy for one another’s personhood, and so far all I see when I see communities is people primed to turn others into effigies to light up.

A reminder that it turns out that online you’re either very off to the side or you’re going to be painted with someone else’s brush. No exceptions.

Having received the Covid vaccine, I wake to find myself transformed into a monstrous microchip. As I lie here unable to move from my bed, staring up at my giant pins as they twitch in the air, I contemplate whether I will ever be able to return to my job as a software engineer.

hello!!!

i need $35 for my phone bill that's coming up, $50-ish for groceries, $80 for medical weed, and an unknown amount to pick up my anti-psychotic and anti-depressant in a few days (first time getting them with the new insurance)

i didn't get the second or third stimulus, and i'm pretty sure it's because my abusive parents claimed me as a dependent to steal it. tried explaining the whole situation here but went over the character limit, the tl;dr is i'm waiting to get my W-2 from my abusive ex-boss who refuses to give it to me

i've been trying to find a job video editing or something, i can't work anywhere facing the public because i have asthma and if i catch covid i'll die excruciatingly

Alan Kay: this is an amazing book,*he wrinkles his nose* but does it have to be about lisp?

This is honestly horrifying.

This tells us that @fsf KNEW that announcing #RMS's return would cause a chunk of the LibrePlanet speakers & sponsors to leave.

So they waited until the end to announce it.

This is what Microsoft did to Mixer.

What Google did to Stadia Games.

Why should we trust their leadership again?
