roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

Alcohol death rates in Europe. Apparently very low in cultures where drunkenness is frowned upon and where alcohol is only consumed in company of others and served alongside meals. Spain and Italy for example. Source:

'Do your research' sounds simple enough but the internet is overflowing with misinformation and not every one can sift it out.

I set my caps lock key (which I rarely use) to be the compose key, then (using GNOME Tweaks) set pressing both shift keys to trigger caps lock.

The compose key lets you type special characters by combining normal characters. For example, [compose]+[three hyphens] creates an em dash (—). [compose]+o+c creates a copyright symbol (©). As a writer, I care deeply about getting the right character rather an approximation such as -- or (c).

You can set the compose key to any key you're not using.

I have an idea for a game around ecosystem restoration. Cooperative, roles based. People need to pursue a balanced ecosystem and must support other members of the team to survive.

Maybe like "Pandemic" but about ecology.

I was recently informed that many people interpret the “I identify as an attack helicopter” thing differently than I knew it, so checking, what do you think it makes fun of?

The options aren’t long enough, so:

All non-cis - it makes fun of all trans people and overall everyone that doesn’t identify with the gender they were assigned at birth.
otherkin/xenogender - the people identifying as ponies, turtles, fictional characters, etc

An #Emacs thing I really want to work on, but I don't expect to have time for in the next months, so I'm sharing in case someone wants to take a stab at it or knows some prior art: The #idea is:

Tablet support for Emacs.

Particularly 2-in-1 devices with touchscreen and a stylus, but not necessarily limited to them (and possibly covering even phones).

The goal is to make Emacs properly usable on touchscreens.

There's bunch of things already present in vanilla Emacs that could make this work.

🧵 1/?

@kuba Working on it :).

Or rather, doing some slow movements towards experimenting with making Emacs (particularly Org Agenda) much better with touch interfaces.

See for relevant Emacs built-in features, that just beg to be repurposed for touch ergonomics.

@rogatywieszcz w ogóle w domach powinna być osobno doprowadzona nitka z wodą gospodarczą. Jak się zastanaowić to jest absurd spłukiwać kibel wodą którą najpierw ogromnym kosztem i nakładem pracy przygotowuje się aby była zdatna do picia (jup, ignoruje zupełnie aspekt wykonalności czegoś takiego, nakładu pracy i środków jaki by był potrzebny ale to inetrenty więc mi wolno) @kmic

@robdaemon @humanetech @natecull @theruran The browser is just a weird VM with too much builtin layouting concepts.

HTML Canvas is just a framebuffer, WASM is just binaries, websockets are sockets.

On the plus side: Building a UI in HTML gives you immutable messages between UI and backend, you can run your frontend elsewhere (like with the X Window System), code is sandboxed, hardware can be accessed when permitted by the user.

Next step: Build a browser in your browser.

Cześć polskie Fedi!

@krzysiek postanowił zapełnić naszą Fediwersową lukę i zahostować polską instancję Pixelfeda. Jaki adres? Oczywiście...

Kto chce przekonać znajomych do porzucenia Instagrama to polecam i zapraszam! (tak, da się ich obserwować z poziomu Mastodona).

If a monkey hoarded more bananas than it could eat, while most of the other monkeys starved, scientists would try to figure out what's wrong.

When humans do it we put them on cover of Forbes.
