Sweet! I thought going #DRMfree would mean I'd have to give up most of my favourite authors.
Does anybody know how to disable middle click paste in #KDE? All I can find are instructions on how to disable the whole button, or disable paste on the desktop.
I need to use the middle click to pan in a graphics application, and it keeps pasting from my cache when I do so.
Also, it was crowdfunded and released under Creative Commons, which is great.
You can download a copy to watch via torrent if you prefer:
I only wish their site said "Follow us on Mastodon" not "Follow us on Facebook".
Just started watching a free doc on mass #surveillance which, while I appreciate all efforts, I feel is starting on the wrong foot.
Their opening counter to the "nothing to hide" nonsense is that most adults have committed at least minor crimes.
This response IMO is harmful. Profit driven #privacy invasions are in no way motivated by policing crime. It's the opposite.
Privacy is matter of self-defence against dangerous, often criminal, actors. We shouldn't let them flip the script.
So, as we all would have assumed, Facebook was well aware of Cambridge Analytica's shitshow much earlier that they claimed.
I know we all expect this, but soooo many people don't yet realise the threat FB poses, so circulating this information remains very important.
We've got to stop calling ourselves "consumers". Two videos in a row I just watched discussing the Epic games store referred to customers as "consumers".
That's how someone who has no respect thinks of you - as an inanimate cog in their profit machine.
Would an expensive restaurant call their diners "consumers"? Would a successful musician call their fans "consumers"? Would a lawyer call their clients "consumers"?
We have to stop dehumanizing ourselves. I am not a "consumer".
Can somebody just @ John Bolton and tell him Bolsonaro has some oil he’s tryna nationalize???
I'd like to take a moment of your timeline to ask folks to use CamelCase in your tags. I didn't know until I came to masto that this helps people who use screen readers parse them as words rather than jumbles of characters. When there are multiple words mashed together in a tag, try capitalising each one, for instance #CommissionMe #CallForArt #LookingForArtist
You really should always read the Terms of Service agreements closely.
Good lord, the sheer amount of corporate apologists, even within purported #privacy communities online, is utterly confounding.
"Oh no, don't you see they had to fuck us over? Won't someone think of corporate profits? If we don't immediately submit, how will the shareholders get their dividends?"
For goodness sake, have some self respect and stand up for yourself a little.
Thank god for #mastodon. The people here are sane, and it's a absolute breath of fresh air.
(I don't normally quotetoot but seems important to give some context here:)
@sean writes the Fediverse's news site @blog, the excellent vidcommons.org instance on PeerTube, and runs lots of other projects promoting decentralised social media. He provides these free of charge, but now needs our help.

So since I discovered the Ice SSB app I mentioned a while ago I have a little dedicated Firefox window that now has 8 tabs with different #mastodon instances in it.
I may have developed a problem.
