⚠️ Important news

There's a new @fdroidorg app called #AirGuard protecting you from being tracked by AirTags.

It scans your surroundings for devices that someone might have put into your pocket to track you via #Apple's #FindMy surveillance network and alerts you if a device is following you.

🎶 I wear my sunglasses at night, so I can so I can,🎶 cope with my photosensitivity from this migraine.

My email provider (zoho.eu) has suspended inbound email because "Mail Rate Exceeds Limit [Mail rate=50/minute]" which is not in my control and an EASY DoS! So now I need recommendations for a new good email in the (rules out fastmail). I don't want one that forces only webmail/their app (tutanota), I want one that supports pure open protocols like IMAPS (which rules out protonmail). Suggestions please, boosts welcomed.

:BoostOK: BOOST THIS, RUST IN DANGER

So it looks like Amazon has its tentacles ready to take over Rust.

The company is slowly adding its own members to the Rust team in an attempt to leverage governance. Amazon employees are badmouthing the original Rust team, and articles are being released to manufacture consent for Rust being an Amazon project.

Capital tryna take away my gay crab language.

ProtonMail’s founder and CEO Andy Yen reacted to the police report on Twitter without mentioning the specific circumstances of that case in particular. “Proton must comply with Swiss law. As soon as a crime is committed, privacy protections can be suspended and we’re required by Swiss law to answer requests from Swiss authorities,” he wrote.

There once was a singer of old
Who then broke away from the fold
He won't give you up
He won't let you down
In a word, you have been Limerick-rolled

@aral I'd like to get your opinion on something I've seen in a couple of places now calling itself "impact capitalism". Investors who will only invest in companies that are making products or services aimed at making things better (socially, environmentally etc). It seems like it is an interesting approach by people stuck in the mindset that capitalism isn't evil, or is it a way to "break the system from the inside" pirate.io is one of the examples.
