Der #IPCC warnt heute eindringlich vor den Folgen der Klimakrise. Wenn wir nicht endlich unsere Abgängigkeit von fossilem Energien beenden, werden Klimafolgen und deren Kosten enorm steigen. Es ist die eindringliche Warnung, jetzt endlich zu handeln!


The fact that the Conservative Party of Canada is going down the Q hole this week is deeply disturbing. I'm no conservative voter by any means, but 🇨🇦 is much healthier when the second most powerful party is not run by the alt-right.

If you make a piece of software, and people are required to use that piece of software in order to, say, pay for their housing or groceries or pay back a loan, you are on the hook to make sure that software works for _every single person_ who needs to use it.

All of them.

Every screen reader user. Every person with muscle issues who can't use a mouse. Everyone who doesn't speak English. Everyone with three first names, or no last name. Everyone who is Irish or Jewish and has a ' in their name. Everyone with slow internet.

EVERY person.

"Oh we don't have the resources to do that!" Great. Then you don't have the resources to make and sell that kind of software. Pack up and go home.

NFTs are about money, not art. They do not serve the best interests of artists, and it's increasingly common to hear of artists who've had their art stolen by NFT sites. If you're thinking of getting into NFTs, *please* research thoroughly to avoid getting scammed.

“The first thing I would like to mention is that there must be a recognition on the part of everybody in this nation that America is still a racist country[...] Now however unpleasant that sounds, it is the truth. And we will never solve the problem of racism until there is a recognition of the fact that racism still stands at the center of so much of our nation and we must see racism for what it is.”


I have no idea what Wordle is or how to do it and at this point I'm afraid to ask.

If you love books, the best part of the Fediverse is probably @bookwyrm, a GoodReads-style social reading network.

Loving @bookwyrm so far - the import from goodreads functionality is so handy. My sister in-law just asked if I knew of any Goodreads alternatives that don't give Bezos any money and I said "funny you should ask..." highly recommended!

Aaron Swartz, an early internet and freedom activist, was pushed to suicide nine years ago today by JSTOR for downloading too many research papers. May he rest in peace.

During #2021 #Bitcoin consumed 134 #TWh in total


RT @DigiEconomist@twitter.com

Some statistics to start the year:

During 2021 Bitcoin consumed 134 TWh in total, which is comparable to the electrical energy consumed by a country like Argentina.

Related CO2 emissions were ~64 Mt; enough to negate the entire global net savings from deploying EVs.
