Chrome continues to be the only major browser without meaningful built-in tracking protection. Web extensions need more freedom to operate on their own, which means first-class access to browser APIs and persistent memory. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/12/goog

One thing I am learning after joinging a software company is that there is general disagreement about how software should be made.

The Facebook leaks should be the starting point, not the end, of a sincere policy debate over concrete approaches that will make the internet—not just Facebook—better for everyone.

Support the project to link villages, towns and cities in Wales and the rest of the UK by walking a 'slow way' near you!

I really, really want to like #pixelfed but it feels even emptier than Mastodon, and I can't find a lot of posts about the things I like 😔 Does anyone else feel the same way? I joined pixelfed.social but maybe I just need to find a better instance?

@dansup @pixelfed are there any plans to add "drag and drop" and cut/paste from browsers on Windows for #Pixelfed (like we already have on Mastodon and Flickr)?

This is quite a big missing feature as I have to write down what pictures I want to upload from the Camera Roll which like being back in 2005 so I end up using Pixelfed less (and its otherwise a decent app)
