Mind you: companies against striking (and the rights of workers) move like this a lot. Basically saying "fuck you, come back and work". https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv/tv-news/disney-demands-showrunners-work-during-writers-strike-wga-1235480879/
My partner shared https://kimkardashianruinedmylife.com/ and so you have to see it too.
That'd unseat them because if more people could vote and generally raised their political knowledge, it'd be clear that neither of the bipartisan groups can serve the public.
oh I'd be interested in this! I came to this idea only through https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKH3oew8D-s that passively mentions it (her series on the 70s is a trip).
Anything near the Omni Shoreham!
Today, it feels like the Republican (and Democrat, if we're being honest) party took the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_strategy (Southern Strategy of using racism against Black people as a political radicalizing strategy) and threw it to anyone who's not a wealthy cishet white male.
XBox spent too much money on buying up companies instead of investing in their staff and resources. Not surprised in that behavior. I actually want XBox to fail and burn to permit these people to work elsewhere and to make space for a vendor, publisher and developer (three separate ones) that can focus on the needs of indie creators (RIP Xbox Live Arcade). https://www.gamesindustry.biz/phil-spencer-were-not-in-the-business-of-out-consoling-sony-or-out-consoling-nintendo
RhythmBox isn't a bad music player. Tbh, it does everything I want: play the music I have on my computer, submit my stats to things, so I can see it later and allow me to make playlists. I would like something that makes it easier to see lyrics for the currently playing song but tbh, that could be done as a side-car app.
Has anyone tried making a custom desktop environment for the Steam Deck? As in a custom overlay that replaces Steam's with something that could plug into multiple game vendors (I'm thinking Itch, GOG, Humble Bumble, Epic, Origin, EA) and lean on how Steam's control mapping works to homogenize this. If I had all the time in the world, this is something I'd want to do and release it openly (with some paid services that would also be open).
what should I be doing in DC 16-17 May at night?

Cop killings are lynchings. We have yet to pass an anti-lynching law, but that'd be against the nature of the United States.
Again, the casual murder of citizens, namely Black people, is in the fabric and programming of the United States. And as much as it runs counter to our collective understanding of the United States, this is what the State wants to do.
Shit activists have been saying for $0.10: https://gizmodo.com/cnn-blurs-faces-of-u-s-secret-police-in-viral-video-1844438285
To a degree! That has been some of my understanding of the appeal of it; I just don't understand why people opt for a different scheme and query parameter at that point? The content-type-fixing is something that trips me a bit tbh. But again, more reading!

This thought is incomplete, but I'm wondering why this and not leaning on URLs. The same information could be packed in it, we use similar systems in XML and JSON. I've been reading the spec slowly just now so might have a more formed opinion then.
How did people like Tom Swift on HBO?
TWC with another issue: https://news.techworkerscoalition.org/2023/05/02/issue-7/
That is when I saw the writing on the wall: the company would always care more about business goals than the end user. That’s also when it became a very difficult place for me to feel like I had any positive impact. I felt like I wasn’t helping anyone at that point other than C-suite executives. I also realized that this position limited my ability to grow as a researcher or as a designer, because the company only wanted us to do two things: one, learn how a given decision was going to make them more or less money, and two, figure out how new ideas could make them more money or less money.
This behavior is TEXTBOOK for them. Stand up, form a union and protect the people!
For some reason (maybe because I said "Mozilla's doing something a bit different and that I like it"?), this is being seen an endorsement. I can't say that I do until I use the service myself. And I haven't — this is a PSA to not put words in my mouth — I'll link this post back to you.
(this has links on my site but won't show as the such on fedi so please on my site)
There's a lot of valid critique, some of which I'm aware of like Aral's point about Mozilla Inc (though, again, owned by the NGO with the same name, would be a lot worse, IMO, if it was in the inverse as most of these organizations tend to be set up like Google and Microsoft) and this solid thread by Chema (which you should read) as they looked more into Mozilla's move here. Chema makes a good point regarding the application of moderation and I do think that Mozilla would be more receptive to change here because of their past work with online safety (like with Rally).
Y'all using DIDs for anything, eh? Guess that's the point.
