@taoeffect Do you immediately think "SJW" when you read “social justice?”
I usually find that folks who call people “SJWs” have a problem with social justice in general.
@Knigge No, it’s always good to be in the pocket of folks like Google and Facebook. That’s how we’re going to move past surveillance capitalism, when we’re all paid by them. Or something…
@harald Yeah, that’s the problem. If X Corp pays you, you won’t be overly keen to hire folks who are working on things that are against X Corp’s interests. Creates a major conflict of interest and leads to institutional corruption. Most (all?) universities, sadly, have become free outsourced corporate training departments.
Owncast is a Small Web app – let’s embrace that fully!
(And, yeah, sadly it IS usually men but it goes equally for everyone.)
This week’s Small Is Beautiful livestream will be on “National Rail Fail: lessons to be learned on privacy and accessibility”
@better fixes the National Rail site? What are the wider implications?
Thursday 15th April, 5pm (Irish time) at https://small-tech.org/events/small-is-beautiful/
It’ll be me and @aral this week. Back in separate rooms, I suspect.
I make Small Tech.
