This kind of thing really gets me going. Irrational fear driving wholesale abandonment of children’s #privacy. ‘It's just the way the world works now, said Gaggle CEO Jeff Patterson.
"Privacy went out the window in the last five years," he said. "We're a part of that. For the good of society, for protecting kids."’
Here is a wee story about two of our squirrels and a previous peanut feeder:

Oh look. Some election mail arrived. I know just what to do.
I find videos like this simultaneously motivating and demotivating. On the one hand I think “I can do that.” On the other hand, I try, and it comes out nowhere near as musical. And I think “I can’t do that.” I spent a solid couple hours on #LogicProX tonight, so I guess she inspired more than uninspired. https://youtu.be/QsjGEjvDbeU #music

I see lots of people arguing that microsoft's open source efforts are in good faith.
I don't believe that is possible, and I won't believe that is possible until microsoft releases critical components of their software under the (a)gpl version 3 or later.
Microsoft spent years operating under a model of Embrace Extend Extinguish, and we have no reason to believe that they have changed.
Microsoft is your enemy. The fact that they are embracing a thing you love should terrify you.
Want to play an interesting game around #representation? Play “spot the person of colour” in the #London tube. What I mean are the ads. Whether they’re selling furniture, vitamins, holidays, or toothbrushes, if you see a person’s skin in an ad (either cartoon or photograph) it’s probably a white person. Some days it’s 90% white. Others it’s 100%.

Two UK parties will not get my vote: the Tories and Labour. The tories HAVE been a disaster and Labour wants to be. A party that wants to leave Europe can’t have my vote.
@ajroach42 i have said it before and I will keep saying
Give me the next next generation!!
I don’t want prequels, I don’t want movies, I only kinda want the Picard show. I want the show that’s 60-80 years after tng, 1 cameo in the first few episodes, and then all new shit. Except for the throwback eps obvs.
