@rick_777 @thomasfuchs I will never learn this, because "dollars 20" makes no sense.

@support Great! I was wondering about the security patch, since Hometown hasn't been updated.

@kennetmattfolk I think the answer should be no, since conceptualising privacy in terms of its economic value is already a sign that the surveillance capitalists have won. It's simply the wrong framework for thinking about privacy, which should be thought as a political - not economic - question.

The Great Google Revolt

...Berland was one of at least four employees Google fired that day. All four were locked in an ongoing conflict with the company, as they and other activists had stepped forward to denounce both its treatment of workers and its relationship with certain customers, like U.S. Customs and Border Protection....

@rostiger Jekyll here. Originally compatibility with Github, now because it has great plugins and themes.

@cj I think American discourse has a weird way framing so many different things through "censorship". Just refusing to listen to someone or refusing to give someone a platform is seen as censorship. It's probably got something to do with the fetishistic relationship American culture has to free speech, but I haven't quite figured out how it works.

@kensanata That's a pretty hard core way to start a discussion on rpgs. I wouldn't start a class in uni with that text (there's a bunch of better resources), and he seems to be high school teacher.

@dredmorbius Woah, that's a harsh reaction for agreeing with you. Dropping now.

> It seeks minimal access to both Facebook's corporate,

This would seem consistent with the surveillance capitalist project of the company. If data = value, then guarding it makes total sense.

I would guess that Facebook (and Google) had a big role in changing the Silicon Valley approach to personal data.

@dredmorbius That's probably true, but I've been thinking whether he simply changed his mind. It's been pretty clear that people disagreed with him, and that statement was given in 2010.
