One of the things I do for a living is reviewing gadgets. Right now I've reviewed the Xiaomi Notebook Pro 120G, which is a powerful compact laptop with a pro-grade screen and a couple of suprises up its sleeve. Do have a look in case you're in the market for a laptop. And I'd be grateful if you could Boost for reach!

Notable that Marc Andreessen backed Elon’s Twitter takeover and is now also backing Post.news, Twitter’s main competitor outside Mastodon. Once again, you think you’re given a choice but the rich get richer either path you take!

We made this tool public for anyone to use—just type in a website to reveal its tracking #technology (or technologies) at themarkup.org/blacklight.
Screenshot of The Markup's Blacklight tool, which is a website privacy inspector. It looks like a search engine, and at the top of the page cbssports.com has been entered as the site to scan. The scan results reveal 56 ad trackers, 38 third-party cookies, as well as that the website could be monitoring your keystrokes and mouse clicks, tells Facebook when you visit it, and allows Google analytics to follow you across the internet. The website scanned does not capture keystrokes and no tracking that evades cookie blockers was found.

“Helping other people use technology requires humility: you have to want to help them realize their goals, which may be totally unlike your own. You have to listen carefully and take care not to make assumptions about how they ‘should’ use tech. You may be a tech expert, but they are experts on themselves.” - @pluralistic

#Introduction post, even though most of this is in my bio:

My pronouns are she/her.

I am #blind. I have a #GuideDog who is semi-retired at this point, Macie.

I love #books and #podcasts of almost any kind. I have extensive lists of both that are ridiculously long, but I’d rather have too much of something than not enough, in a lot of cases.

I love #music! My favorite genre would have to be #RAndB #R&B (whichever works better as a hashtag) and #soul, with #HipHop being a close second. I also like a little bit of nearly every other genre of music too. My music collection is very eclectic. My favorite hiphop artists are #BigKRIT, #KendrickLamar, and #Eminem. I have too many favorite R&B and soul singers and bands to name.

I like some #technology things. I love my #iPhone, and I collect #headphones and #speakers to a possibly unhealthy extent. I’m a #Braille enthusiast. I like some other tech stuff too, but it’s a little spotty compared to lots of people here.

I’m interested in #science and #psychology. I’m also somewhat interested in #medicine and #medical things. Throw in a little #philosophy too.

I have #depression and #anxiety. There are lots of #MentalHealth issues in my family.

I’m not a religious person, but recently I found a #UnitarianUniversalist church which is kind of a perfect place for nonreligious and religious people alike to come together, care for each other, and discuss life. I feel very at home there.

I love things in life that bring comfort, such as #tea, #blankets, #love, and #conversation.

I have the best #family in the world, including my 2 little nephews who are the cutest, best kids ever!

If you want to know more about me, please ask.

If you want to find me on #Twitter, I’m @Miss_A_94.


I'm a 17-year-old #blind teenager. Mostly in to #technology, #Linux, #Unix, and #MacOS / #iOS hacking.
I'm a big #JDilla fan. I even uploaded a huge collection of his unreleased beats to the #InternetArchive.
Speaking of which, I'm a huge archivist. Saving data and data hording are some of my all-time favorite hobbies, but unfortunately I haven't got enough money to buy harddrives ATM. At least I can upload to archive.org, so this is what I do.

Hey, all of our #Relays appear to be dead. Does anyone have, or know of, a #Relay that we could join?
Preferably a #Moderated #Relay with a nice atmosphere?
We offer some posts about random stuff including #accessibility, probably some #gaming, maybe some #music, maybe a #ShortStory or a #Poem, #Food or #Technology or #Pets? We also have some #SoftwareDevelopment in various areas from very mainstream to very obscure, as well as some #Sound and #SoundDesign.

Cheaper hearing aids hit stores in US today, available over the counter for first time – They often cost thousands and by prescription only. Now they’re as low as $199 at Walmart

Why support Purism? We believe people should have #technology that fully respects their freedom. Being a social purpose company means doing social good for society before maximizing profits, and that makes us quite a different company from the big tech players. Thank you for supporting us!


So if the long-form flag is --directory, what is the short-form?

Did you say, -C?

Why yes, of course.

I'm starting a small call for entries for a yet-to-exist 'zine on tech for resting, being lazy, letting be, and having a break. Share wide and far.

--

For the first Fallow Zine, la Jachère is interested in contributions about the following topics, but not limited to them.

- Lazy tech or tech for the lazies
- Tech that falls into place, fits, is just enough
- Tech for rest, pause, have a break, take a breath
- Tech for preservation, of the status quo, of energy, of a moment, of equilibrium

More on https://jache.re/notes/call-fallow-zine-1.html

- Deadline: 21. June 2022 (more or less… deadlines are thresholds to play with)
