I don't know what percentage of our time on any computer-based project is spent getting the equipment to work right, but if I had a gardener who spent as much time fixing her shovel as we spend fooling with our computers, I'd buy her a good shovel. At least you can buy a good shovel.

fun fact: i can id as trans and not do anything to my physical appearance (whether bc of choice or situation, both are valid) and still be a valid trans person who's worthy of respect

“I think someone broke into my house!”

“Are you a Ring customer?”

“No!?”

Our comrades had not read Marx and were scarcely familiar with all of Proudhon's theories, but common sense was their guide.

Thinking of becoming a goth how do I do that?

The Community Calafou is having them opendays this summer: calafou.org/en/content/opennin

So if you ever wanted to visit, now's the time! It's a lovely (hacker) community in the mountains near Barcelona: openstreetmap.org/way/15968751

I've also been taking some photos there in the past: u2m.nl/pwg/index.php?/category

i want the version of the matrix with trans characters in it and humans used as processors not batteries

selfie; ec; boosts welcome ☺️ 

Fucking white people turning society into an open-air prison by installing cameras for police to watch your street like prison guards watch a prison hallway, by volunteering their DNA so governments and corporations can map together the genome of anyone related to them, by installing listening devices into their homes.

All for what? "Home security" (governments and corporations leveraging racism to sell camera installations)? "Finding your ancestors online" (giving away DNA, by definition your only unchangeable unique identifier)? "Getting a personal assistant" (getting an always-on government and corporate listening device in exchange for knowing the forecast without looking at a computer)?

This shit is all so fucking transparent ffs

FYI: Turning their bullshit on them is top notch anticapitalist praxis
