The thing you have to keep in mind about the tech field is that white guys are invested in running out every other social group when it comes to that field because that is the only way they can maintain their 'dominance' of it.

This is the objective context of working in technology. If a dude isn't actively fighting against this context, he is enabling it.

Either you're for more diversity in the field or not. There is no middle ground.

If recent events have you thinking about codes of conduct, you can hire me to evaluate yours and make an action plan to be ready to start enforcing it. $200 and I have a sponsored spot for a project that can’t afford to do this on their own. lifeofaudrey.com/2018/07/16/co

The fediverse is impressively hungry for anti-harassment tools!

The other day, I released t5.codesections.com/ —a tool to learn who you favorite most. It's a fun tool and spread widely with 30 boosts.

Yesterday, I released mastodon-de-mob.codesections.c As an anti-harassment tool you only use when being actively mobbed, I thought it would be of niche interest.

But instead, it's been boosted nearly 100 times(!), and is still going strong.

@Gargron this might tell you what features people want

@kibi Excellent post! I added it to the references from my TRANSform Tech talk - medium.com/a-change-is-coming/

Great point that “Acknowledging and recording the troubled history of the Mastodon software is essential to prevent the narratives of these other developers — frequently, marginalized actors doing important work for their communities — from being lost.” As @June says it's rare that these things are documented - and so credit tends to go to the less-marginalized people.

Okay. #mastoadmin commentary time.

I've written a quick guide, So You're A Mastodon Moderator: noelle.codes/so_youre_a_mastod

My goal for this is threefold:

* I want to create a useful reference for moderators, so they know what options are available.
* I want to create a useful reference for /users/, so they know what the powers and limitations of being a moderator are.
* I want to help establish a /standard of moderation/, so we're all on a level playing field.

Hello Assembled People of European Mastodon! I work at @eff on international copyright. You might have heard of #article13, the EU proposal to require © filters on sharing sites.

We're really worried that this could affect services like ActivePub/Mastodon instances, opening them up to lawsuits or requiring expensive filters.

The key vote is on Wednesday -- please call or write your MEP and ask them to vote against #article13 to protect the future of the internet! saveyourinternet.eu/
