Current status: Looking up WTF a schwa is...

I've got two tickets for the Hilltop Hoods at Rod Laver next Friday night (9th) that I can't use so I'm giving then away. Anyone want them?

We published a statement on our stance on neutrality of free software (and why we won't stay neutral in this case): f-droid.org/en/2019/07/16/stat

you know, on Mastodon?

I'm here to find more community, more friends. I want to find more artists, and also to share my own art. I want to chat with other parents of young children about... well, kids. And the challenges of raising them. I want to feel safe talking about things like being probably autistic. I want to spend less time marinating in the woe woe woe of the world, but I like that I can CW it if I do want to talk about those things.

Just had a *great* conversation with the Jetstar call centre person about how "change your seat selection" on the website working for them and their Chrome/Win10 combination but not for any of the 9 (nine) browser/OS combinations I tried at home means the problem is a their end, not mine.

Isn't it suspicious that every single Miss Universe so far has been a human?

So now we nurse our hangovers. And work our how to rebuild.

Why don't we feel like we deserve a Prime Minister like New Zealand's?

@mike knowing that my behavioral data allows them to create content optimised for addiction-like consumption is what did it for me

Matt boosted

@mike I hear you, but what I was referring to goes beyond recommendations.

They know for each TV series at what episode the majority of viewers stop watching. They know for each episode when people pause or when they stop watching. They can then deduce what events need to happen at what moment to keep you watching.

Given that they create their own content, I'd say we have a bit of a conflict of interest.

That's not art, that's organised addiction enabling.

I'm not helping them.

Why not boycott Uber every day? 😎

Having read an article about it, I have just signed up for Postcrossing (postcrossing.com/), which is a website for people to send postcards to people all around the world. It randomly picks a recipient for you to send a card to, and then you receive one from another randomly chosen sender.

It looks like a really nice way to learn a bit about other cultures and get good post from friendly people 😀

I'm looking for an artist to do a cartoon style family portrait for my wife's significant birthday that is coming up soon-ish. Anyone know anyone who does stuff like that?

And I have to write this "Statement of Claims" for a job application by tomorrow and I've never done one before and I don't like it.
