I volunteer as 'IT person' for a museum in its early days, ( - @EICAS).

I would love to connect with other "museum people" and "museum IT people", here and elsewhere.

Any boosts/recommendations welcome!

Great time for the reminder that #FreeSoftware isn't about the cost... funding is always needed.

:boost_ok: :ablobcatwave: Please boost this post if you would like the EFF to join the fediverse. :ablobcatbongo:

In a survey the EFF sent me, I suggested they create an account on the fediverse, so they can reach more supporters and support innovative free software that promotes interoperability among platforms, something they've advocated for in the past, too.

If you can boost this post, maybe I'll be able to show them that there are quite a few users who would like them here!

The EFF is the infamous nonprofit organisation that fights for privacy, government transparency, and digital freedom. Their fight is very important, and the EFF is very special to me.

You can see some of their work here

In the meantime, you can follow @eff, which is an unofficial mirror of their Twitter.

"Surveillance capitalists' interests have shifted from using automated machine processes to know about your behavior to ... shape your behavior according to their interests." The whole Pokémon Go thing passed me by, but now I discover in that it was a gross experiment in herding hapless players to Starbucks and pizzerias.

They've always wanted you to "click this ad", but "sleepwalk into this shop" is some next level behavior modification.

Do you use an RSS/Atom reader?

Boosts appreciated for sample size :)

The @nextcloud markdown editor just lost a hour of my wife's work. No errors, no messages, nothing saved. This will be a deal-breaker that drives her back to Google Docs 😞

Any other self-hosted, in-browser document editors that have a good mobile app out there? (apart from OwnCloud)

Dear Mastodon, we're ~60 followers away from 12K! Can you help us get there?

Help by spreading the word that:

🔵 Privacy is a human right.

🔵 Tracking & surveillance are widespread on the internet.

🔵 Tor is a nonprofit that can help you take back your privacy online.

Well, this is both fascinating and terrifying:

This is honestly like turning the crank on a meat grinder backwards and having that work so well that that cows just mosey out of it under their own power. It is astounding.

10. It's becoming creepy to realise that a lot of important places and roads where I grew up were named after assholes; Richmond (Road), Hobson (Street), Wakefield (Street), Grey (Lynn), Marsden (Point)...

But famous Māori protagonists don't seem to have become street names.

We're steeped in colonialism in insidious ways I hadn't imagined.

(Naming streets after colonial assholes is also big in Buenos Aires, where I now live, but at least they teach their exploits in schools here)

9. Settlers (in Auckland at least) actually supported upholding the Treaty, as they were heavily dependent on trade with Māori.

But only until settlers began to outnumber Māori. Then the Treaty became a nuisance that should be overruled, so it would no longer " damp the ardour and cramp the energies of the industrious white man" - this from a settler who was also 'Native Minister' in the settler government (!)
