Amazon is not only one of the world's most powerful tech companies--it also sells numerous surveillance and anti-privacy products (Echo, Ring, Rekognition). Additionally, it's cloud services (Amazon Web Services) hosts much of the Fortune 500, as well as invasive US govt agencies, like the CIA and ICE. Result? A state-corporate nexus that embodies modern surveillance capitalism. Chapter from "The Cost of Free Shipping". #amazon #anarchism #labor #privacy

#Pinephone #DailyDriver informal survey closed:

Looks good to me! Among a demographic biased to geeky and pro-free-software people, about a fifth are currently using their pinephone as their daily driver, and another half guess they'll be doing so on a 15-month time scale.

This short time scale should encourage experienced GNU/Linuxers willing to have a go and contribute bug reports and merge requests: this is not vapourware.

Thanks to everyone who answered! :)

Those fedizens who've chosen No, because they hardly use bots anyway:

Are you aware of what bots are available to you, and how they may be of service? I know that I don't have a complete overview.

#Bot #developer on the #Fediverse could you respond and introduce your bot project to this #poll thread?

If they are #foss then I will also add them to the #ActivityPub developer watchlist at:

Boosts appreciated.. ๐Ÿ™

1. Do you want to recreate the feeling of that day at primary school when they asked you to wash your hands and make a sandwich and afterwards they showed you your hands and the sandwich under a UV light?

2. Do you have an android phone?

If you answered yes to both these questions, great news! The app you are looking for is called Tracker Control
