The best life rule I've ever come up with is to leave my Sunday mornings FREE. No helping friends move, visiting family, doing work or taxes, or worrying about anything.

Just a lazy morning in bed, in a warm house, with coffee and possibly pancakes. ❤️

Tomorrow morning they will surround the Paddington Green Police station in the event the bailiffs are told to force entry. We need to stop them for everyone living there, and for every family they will come for after. This Event is not only to raise awareness of the hideous neglect of our country but to use any means necessary to peacefully prevent the eviction.

We will gather by the telephone boxes outside of Paddington Green at 10AM Tommorrow. PLEASE share this around to anyone who’d be able to show up and show their support.

We are losing our shelter . We are losing our healthcare , we are getting evicted and deported. It’s time we lose our fear. Tomorrow, the police will be deploying ruthless violence to kick people from their homes by any means necessary. They are ripping our shelter apart and leaving us to freeze on the streets.

For years #PaddingtonGreen Police Station has been left to rot by the government while people die on the streets from lack of shelter. People in the past few weeks have turned it into their homes. Their intention was not only to live there themselves, but to open it to a wider community, prioritising the homeless community in this borough. But the government cannot allow that to happen. They will put profit over people’s lives.

"How Finland starts its fight against fake news in primary schools"

"In maths lessons, Kivinen’s pupils learn how easy it is to lie with statistics. In art, they see how an image’s meaning can be manipulated. In history, they analyse notable propaganda campaigns, while Finnish language teachers work with them on the many ways in which words can be used to confuse, mislead and deceive"

"Every platform dies off some day. Geocities, LiveJournal, now Yahoo Groups. One day, Medium, Twitter, and even hosting services like GitHub Pages will be plundered then discarded when they can no longer grow or cannot find a working business model"

Thanks to @Thib support for #XMPP URIs got merged into mastodon a few days ago. This should make linking to external discussion channels and moving a conversation to a E2E encrypted chat a bit easier on the fediverse:

Now just think about all those shady VPN companies based in Panama again. You don’t need TS clearance to know. The same strategy that worked still applies today.

What if I told you what happened with Crypto AG 50 years ago is happening right now with ███████?

Efforts made in the 70’s to control cryptography < efforts made today to control electronic communications

Yes, of course I want a rotary cell phone.

The power switch is an actual slide switch. No holding down a stupid button to make it turn off and not being sure it really is turning off or what. justine-haupt.com/rotarycellph

OpenPush - A Free, #Decentralized Push Messaging Framework for #Android

"Push messages are an essential part of connected mobile devices. They are also one of the critical missing pieces in the #opensource Android ecosystem. Until now, free Android apps would either need to implement their own push notification system, do without any push messaging or use the proprietary Google Cloud Messaging service."
