Pinafore v1.19.0 

Highlights:

- Bookmarks support! (Thank you @charlag!) Press "…" on a toot and then "bookmark" to bookmark it. Your bookmarks are in the Community page under "Bookmarks."

- Press "/" to instantly start searching (Thank you GitHub user shinenelson!)

- Nicer "maskable" PWA icons in Firefox/Chrome on Android (may require reinstall)

- Empty timelines no longer show an infinite loading spinner, instead they tell you they're empty (old bug, finally fixed!)

On the Human Centred Design show, @aral talks with service designer Gerry Scullion about the role of design in surveillance capitalism. Enjoy Sensibly spent 45minutes: is.gd/yBiBbq

"Ultimately, despite our best efforts, Apple’s updates may render Audience Network so ineffective on iOS 14 that it may not make sense to offer it on iOS 14."

Thank you Apple <3

I see a lot of open source software projects that do not do a good job of describing themselves.

It's okay. There's nothing shameful about that.

Most programmers aren't writers.

Just like most writers aren't programmers.

I can't code to save my life, but I can write some killer copy and content.

Know of any open source projects that need copy written?

I want to contribute.

Hessische Lehrer:innen haben offenbar Mailkonten nach dem Muster ...@schule.hessen.de erhalten. Der Anbieter ist das Land selbst. Damit hat Hessen einen der wichtigsten Bausteine zu einer #DigitalSouveränenSchule gelegt! Respekt!!!

So sind sensible Kommunikationsinhalte sowie deren Metadaten grundsätzlich schon mal in einer sicheren Umgebung. Das wäre doch, wie auch das Thüringer Modell, ein Beispiel für andere Bundesländer.

Sofortüberweisung: "Neben dem Kontostand werden weitere Daten zur Prüfung der Kontodeckung vom Zahlungsdienstleister abgerufen, darunter der aktuelle Kontostand, die Umsätze, der Kreditrahmen des Dispokredits, das Vorhandensein anderer Konten, sowie deren Salden."

Nicht nutzen sowas. Einfach gruselig.

Ohne Worte. Mit "technisch notwendig" lässt sich wohl jede Datensammelei begründen...

Sometimes when I'm helping a non-techie with computer issues, and the best advice I can give them is "did you try turning it off and back on again," I wonder if they think I'm not really trying to help them, or that I'm withholding some secret computer science knowledge from them. But no – this is the big insight! When you're a programmer, you realize that programmers don't really know what they're doing. All software is terrible. And our collective misfortune, as users, is to do battle with it

OMG, TIL about the amazing @ReverseEagle community!

They make the @switchingsoftware website helping people find great FOSS alternatives to software.

But maybe even cooler is their RE Developers work, where they work to get FOSS devs to stop using Google tools!

They list alternatives to Google tools used by devs, and they contact the devs asking them to switch.

This is great work!

The thing that makes this outcome not pure fantasy (and which many folks don't understand) is that a lot of people who work on the Chrome team are true web-heads who really believe in "the open web" and want to see a vibrant, thriving ecosystem. The question is whether the people who write their paychecks have the same perspective, especially when Chromium has reached a level of near-monopoly influence and doesn't strictly need to "play nice" in standards anymore.

TL;DR: the best outcome for the web at this point is that Chromium becomes some kind of foundation rather than a totally Google-controlled project. Maybe it can be wrestled from Google's hands the same way Node was wrestled from Joyent's. It feels unlikely to me, but having multiple browser engines with roughly equal influence and roughly keeping up with each other (as it was circa maybe ~2010) feels even more unlikely.

This is a good thread on where browser engines are going… Chris knows what he's talking about; he's been in the browser game for decades (first at Microsoft, later at Google): twitter.com/cwilso/status/1293

Mein Fünkchen Hoffnung, dass sie es irgendwie schaffen eine substantielle Geschäftsmodell auf die Beine zu stellen ohne auf Google aufzubauen, ist dann auch hin.

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.
