@Gargron has
done a great job of keeping #Trump social in the corner they painted themselves in:

"If Truth Social backpedals on its claims to have created the social network itself — and not simply set up a branded instance of Mastodon, which anyone can do in an afternoon — it will be safe but may lose a bit of luster. If it doesn’t, then it’s a textbook case and a lawsuit may force the company to build its own code base after all, which they may find is harder than expected."

Despite the dark patterns, I take a moment to make my choice on the consent banners. Sites are listening and the GDPR opt-in rate is one of the key performance indicators. They often mention this when they contact Plausible. Every choice is a vote for a more private web.

@loke https://idiomdrottning.org/perfect Signal is the perfect example of what we should avoid, of the type of “good” that’s an enemy of perfect.

The improvement over FB etc isn’t big enough since we are still beholden to one corporation, and
getting people to switch to Signal will make it harder to get them to switch to something else in the future. You only get so many “you should switch to such-and-such” per lifetime.

We’re painting ourselves into a corner by recommending Signal, Telegram, Discord. It breaks my heart every time I see them recommended.

The OpenBSD Webzine is taking shape!

Has regular and dark theme so everyone will be happy :flan_hacker:

I expect it to be online very soon, stay tuned :flan_thumbs:

I gathered a small community of contributors around it already. Not being alone in this was invaluable, when I got an idea, people helped refining it and suggesting better ideas. I hope everyone will enjoy our work.
