Pinned toot

I've been on the fediverse since a _long_ time, previously mostly on social.umeahackerspace.se, seen a lot of things move, seen a lot of things cool down.

I am, in no particular order, a musician of various kinds, a programmer, an academic, a white cis guy, a hacker, a burned-out activist ( among other things), a teacher, a student, appreciative and occasionally a contributor of art, of thought, and of justice.

Currently in CH, previously in SE.

I just open-sourced our surreal Zelda-like, Anodyne!!

The code, art, and music are now free to be used for mods, fan games, sprite webcomics, AMVs, etc! I also included the level editor. Check it out here and make something cool!!

To Jitsi admins:

– Add a privacy policy (or a link to it) to your landing page.
– Be aware of Google STUN servers in your configuration (see also github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/pu).
– Change the default text of the landing page since it may incorrectly state that Jitsi is fully encrypted.
– Try to deploy HTTP security headers, like a strict Content Security Policy.
– Keep your server software up-to-date (see also infosec-handbook.eu/as-wss/).
– Be nice to each other.

This is the flag of Bikini Atoll, whose symbolism essentially means 'fuck the United States.'

I'm thinking about Zoom a lot these days, since I use it for teaching.

While it has clear problems, including privacy problems, a very common tip is to move to, of all things, Microsoft Teams.

I can't help but think that this is astroturfing from a monopoly power aimed at a (relatively) new and small company.

To be clear, something free/open source/self-hosted is def better than Zoom in almost all cases (BigBlueButton, Jitsi), and they deserve a lot of the shit they get, but just.. Microsoft?

remember when white people discovered soap nuts and now traditional communities in India are running out because they're all sold abroad? it's even more ridiculous when you think about how horse chestnuts also contain saponins
