comrade linus 🫡🫡

but also he’s finnish, which is communist, so he’s obviously a communist smh 🤷‍♀️

oh damn, that’s very elaborate, much thanks 😊 🙏🫡

Worker rights in PRC
i'm curious to get some concrete data wrt to worker rights/labour legislation in prc: is it as bad as it's often perceived in the west? has anything changed recently? there's a weird duality to it in my perception, on one side it's a relatively happy nation, but on the other side there is the crazy 996 work schedule, poor safety net that's largely substituted by investment in housing etc 🤔

does anyone know what kind of moderation 4chan has? tbh, if it didn’t attract all racists, nazis in the world, i think that kind of forum would be onto something interesting 🤔

The true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love. It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality | Che Guevara
found this quote on a competitive typing website, and for some reason it really resonated with me, thought i'd share it :)

/c/privacy is looking for moderators
greetings everyone, there's already >3.5k members here, not all of them are active obviously, but there are still a lot of posts on this sub, and even more comments, i can't really meticulously go through each and every one of them if you are somewhat active in this community, and have been on lemmy (or one of the other instances) for a few months, and would like to dedicate some time to moderating this community, please pm me :)

can someone pls explain why so much importance is put into pronouns? imo it puts additional emphasis on gender when all of us could benefit a lot from deemphasizing it tbh

so glad the FREEMARKIT^(TM) graced our sinful souls with this heavenly hydrogen tiddy juice 🥳🥳

What’s your favorite software for generating fake identities?
i needed one for filling out required info on some stupid account: things like address, phone number, name etc... any suggestions?

if both instances are federated with each other, you can simply copy the url of the community on another instance and paste it into the search field of your instance, then click on the community that pops up

from there you can subscribe to it to see posts from it in your feed, upvote/downtove/make posts and comments

Post: anti-vegan talking points are rehashed right-wing talkings points, beware. Comments: sorry, veganism is just not for me, baby steps 🤦‍♀️
non-vegan leftists are truly more stubborn to argue against than other non-vegans stay on alert for anti-vegan propaganda, be very careful john

POV 2024:

we are now desperately trying to get people off of signal because it turned out it was privacywashing (like greenwashing, but with privacy)

hi there, i do not agree with much in this article and many tangential view points, however i want to better understand the other side of the discussion, so pls no hostility

how would you say imperialists’ intentions have manifested during the recent elections?

also what do you think about the legitimacy of the recent elections?

It really bothers me that not needing a phone number for registration is now a feature, and not a basic requirement for anything claiming to be anonymous/private…

As /u/wraptile mentioned, DDG is hardly libre software, thus it doesn’t deserve it. They basically offer privacy by policy, not privacy by design. Additionally, the very foundation, the concept of ad-based revenue model is flawed, and DDG is just a less-flawed (as compared to most other implementations) version of it.

Ideally we need to have a decentralized data base with indexed websites, that would be hosted partially on computers of every participant of this theoretical network, and those said computers would be performing the crawling.

And with DDG we have a ultra-centralized database and crawlers, hosted on the worst privacy offender in the world’s servers, and in addition to that most of the code is closed-sourced.

No thank you.

(I do use DDG as my primary search engine, and a lot of the features are really cool, but I would be happy to get as far away as possible from it as soon as a comparable libre solution emerges)

wow, to be honest, i'm really impressed with what it does for 200$, waiting for mass production :)

can't wait :) mobile devices liberated at last

Microsoft’s Software is Malware
microsoft bad, gnu good

The title is copied from the article, it's a little misleading, since the users are given the option of choosing from multiple search engines *including* DDG, Google and others

For anyone looking for Plex/Emby replacement, whose developments have gone astray. For those unfamiliar, Jellyfin is a libre fork of Emby, which (similar to Plex) has gone closed-source, resorted fully to the freemium model, to the point where it's literally not possible to use the free version, started including tremendous amounts of telemetry (mostly Plex). And just on a basic level, it sounds a bit ridiculous to pay for software for media that you provide **yourself** hosted on the hardware that you provide **yourself**. Anyway, the project is kind of in the early state, but the development is rather fast, just in the couple months that I've been using it a lot of things have been improved/introduced, most important for me being: - iOS clients have been released - pause/resume is now universal across all devices for the same user (i.e. start playing on one device, continue watching on another one from the moment you stopped) There's native support for Linux, macOS and Windows (why would you use those?) and Docker and Kubernetes images available. Anyway, the developers are committed to keep the software libre forever, so that's a nice thing :) *btw are we posting software recommendations here?*

It's interesting how matrix mentions that they're going to pour a lot of resources into p2p in 2020 :)
