(5/6) Pixelfed cannot be a better and ethical alternative if it ignores the gamification and FOMO dark patterns found on popular platforms.

Los peligros del aguacate: España, al borde del colapso hídrico por su cultivo.
La obtención de un kilo de aguacate conlleva un consumo de 600 litros de agua.
Es un cultivo que está esquilmando los recursos hídricos en bastantes zonas del sur de España.

question about the selfie eye-contact CW 

Hi, all -- For some time I've seen people use the "eye contact" CW for selfies. I've hoped over time to figure out why that warning is used, and I have to admit: I'm unsure.

Would someone explain why that custom exists? (I'm not arguing with it, and I'm happy to abide by it. Just curious!)

Dear Spotify: don’t manipulate our emotions for profit

Take a stand against Spotify
's recent speech-recognition patent that claims to detect “emotional state, gender, age, or accent” to recommend music.

Music services shouldn't be using covert surveillance in their products.

Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.

"The way our digital lives have been structured to depend on third party intermediaries that simply pass our communications on to our friends and families while all the time spying on us to make money isn’t fate. It is the result of many decisions made because it was easier this way or because it would make money for those in the middle."

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

Great work from @accessnow@twitter.com - calling out Spotify's gross new always-on speech-recognition tech that claims to detect “emotional state, gender, age, or accent.”

2021. Big data, AI, ML, etc. Vas a un anestesista y te pregunta qué enfermedades tienes. El historial o no se mira, o no es fiable (sincronización, actualización), o no se tiene el tiempo para mirar. Como pacientes seguimos siendo la base de datos, el API y la interfaz.
