So I'm reading Blood in the machine and actually think being called a Luddite is the highest complement you can give someone today. I encourage everyone to read Blood in the Machine. Luddites weren't technophobes. https://www.hachettebookgroup.com/titles/brian-merchant/blood-in-the-machine/9780316487740/?lens=little-brown #Tech #Technology #Books @bookstodon

@weirdwriter @bookstodon Great perspective! For the longest I thought I knew the term Luddite from a novel so I looked it up. I’m pleased that wasn’t the case. I came across this article on literary works and the Luddite movement, though. Interesting!

Has anyone come across a Google doc/list of all the #vc firms that are buying single family homes in the US and ruining the current and future #housing market for literally everyone? Asking for a friend...

Dopo aver resistito eroicamente per quasi un anno e fino all'ultimo uomo, cioè io, all'installazione di Uozzappe (merdassoluta) sul mio smartphone, mi hanno rifilato un device aziendale con il merdone preinstallato e già settato.
Pregandomi di usarlo.

Mi sono presentato così con il primo messaggio:

-- Carissimi,
da sempre, NON considero mex vocali più lunghi di 29 secondi. (il tempo di uno spot in TV)

E anche quelli li considero molto poco...

Evitate.
Buona giornata e buon lavoro a tutti. --

Non ho idea se sia stato apprezzato o meno ma questo è quanto.

BREAKING: Federal judge dismisses a conservative lawsuit challenging a Washington, D.C. law that allows noncitizen residents to vote in local elections. Republican voters argued the law "discriminates against U.S. citizens living in D.C."

It's not extremism to want you and yours to flourish and not just survive by scraping by.

ok, so my sons bought a heavily discounted "smart" last xmas. a TCL with Roku plastered all over the box.

is there a way to root these tvs and wipe their OS?

https://www.wired.com/story/roku-terms-of-service-update-locks-tv/

rooting and changing the OS of smart anything, especially phones, need to be at the center of the right to repair movement, not just getting access to software drivers or hardware.

PS: i have avoided activating the Roku nonsense exactly for what the article describes.

@blogdiva This all #marketing and #profit bullshit. These huge “smart” TVs are so cheap, but that’s only because they’re burdened with #malware and #spyware. Try pricing a “dumb” display at that size.

Then you realize this is like an ISP renting you their hardware at a discount or charging you four times more every month to bring your own. There’s a reason they want their device in your home and it’s not a benefit to you. So they create financial #incentive give to make you do it. #RESIST!

Are you, or do you know, a high school student with some artistic skills in Oregon's 5th Congressional district? Our representative, Lori Chavez-Deremer, is encouraging them to submit entries to a Congressional art competition.

https://chavez-deremer.house.gov/services/art-competition

Me, I encourage them to submit art about an important event in Congressional history: January 6, 2021, when a mob of domestic terrorists, spurred on by the outgoing President, attacked the Capitol in an attempt to overturn a democratic election and murder Congresspeople.

In 2020 the Indian Parliament passed three farm bills described as “anti-farmer laws.” For a couple of years, many Indians protested in the streets and halted industry flow. The protesters eventually won, and the laws were repealed. ✊🏻

    So then they disabled the internet...

    How we laughed...

    Then they disrupted transport and food distribution...

    How we...laughed?

    Then they started banging on doors and quoting security breaches while they took us away...

    Not so funny now...is it?
