I very rarely post on the birdsite, but I thought my recent blog article on the dangers of surveillance capitalism was worth highlighting there.
With +3k folllowers, the only like and retweet I got was from .... myself...?
It's almost like the birdsite algorithms filter out information seeking to influence people away from the birdsite 😂
This Guardian column by #CaroleCadwalladr describes how #Facebook (and #Instagram, #WhatsApp) are the poison that is destroying democracy. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/jul/26/with-facebook-we-are-already-through-the-looking-glass
Yet there is a vaccine - and an antidote. And if you're already on #Mastodon, you're part of the solution.
Full power to everyone who is part of the solution!
There's no hope here, just a razor-sharp puncturing of the fantasist approach to 'soverignty' which will result in a greatly diminished UK.
There were nearly 9,000 signatures for this one
Thank god that we got rid of all that EU bureaucracy 🙄 #brexit https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/providing-services-to-eea-and-efta-countries-after-eu-exit
Another amazing #Brexit column from Professor #ChrisGrey. The Brexit ultras will never be happy - even with a no-deal Brexit. They are only happy with a narrative of betrayal, and we are forced to endure their never-ending cries of treachery.
#MarkBarry, a Professor in transport policy in #Wales, makes the case for more integrated public transport in south Wales to provide a whole host of benefits https://swalesmetroprof.blog/2020/07/13/a-public-transport-grid-for-the-m4-corridor/
#IWAWales blog post about the need for #IndyWales, by Brian Jones and Edward Jones https://www.iwa.wales/agenda/2020/07/from-a-state-of-mind-to-a-nation-state/
Another amazing post on #Brexit from #ChrisGrey, this one referencing #IndyWales as a footnote, along with the breakup of the UK and the continuing dissolution of the UK's place as a leading 'global' state.
To be #antiracist means dismantling the structures that lead to poorer outcomes for people of colour https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/jul/07/anti-racism-checking-privilege-anti-blackness
Sounds good to me
I like the Manifesto for Democracy published by the Electoral Reform Society in #Wales (endorsed by the Institute for Welsh Affairs amongst others) https://www.electoral-reform.org.uk/welsh-civil-society-launches-democracy-manifesto-for-2021-senedd-elections/
#Feminist. Physicist. Anti-racist 🦸✊🏾
