GitHub Pages "blocks" Google's FLoC now by adding the opt-out header.

I don't think this is any reason to celebrate. #Google pulled two tricks here:

1. It identified all websites that are against this standard, making it easy to rank them worse.
2. Provided a technical solution to a social problem making all the tech elitist feel good by adding a header instead of protesting.

All in all, I feel this header legitimises the standard more and more "because you can opt-out". #FLoC #privacy

I have been using @gnome 40 on 34 beta since last 3 weeks now. The horizontal workspaces have definitely improved the way I use them. Moving windows across workspaces is much easier, you actually get a quick view of all the windows/applications with overview and probably much more, I don't even remember how it was before!

What is the license of your personal website's content, and why?

I'm thinking of licensing my website content with CC-BY-SA 4.0 and code with GPLv3. Want to use a copyleft license. Are there any reasons I should prefer something else?

Instance admin just lost their job, might need help 

Mstdn.social is one of the largest and nicest instances on the Fediverse, run by an enthusiastic admin called @stux

Unfortunately Stux has today found out that they are fired from their day job 😞

However, by happy coincidence, Stux had just set up a hosting company. If you need web hosting, domain names etc please consider using Stuxhost so that Stux can continue working:

And then, for each sequence of slides, the questions are:

What did this person believe before we got here?

What do I want them to believe after they see this?

Brick by brick, step by step, your slides conspire to cause this change to happen.

The font you choose, your grammar, the size of the letters, the quality of the picture–each of these tactical decisions has a purpose. What’s the change I want this element to contribute to?

Publish. Consistently. With patience. Own your assets. Don’t let a middleman be your landlord. Yell at Google for blocking your emails and hope it’ll work eventually. Continually push for RSS and an open web. With patience.

Getting picked is great, when it works. Someone needs to be in the spotlight and it might as well be you.

In the meantime, catch your breath, show up and contribute.

It all adds up.
