[FR] "Ce que l’on combattait déjà avant, nous allons devoir le combattre encore plus fort aujourd’hui."

Interview de Corine Morel Darleux, à la lumière du "monde d'après". Via @beanface42

Loch Mhòrair (Morar) is Scotland's deepest loch, and also home to Mòrag.

However, the loch isn't the largest (by volume) body of water in Scotland. That honour is held by Loch Nis (Ness) which although not as deep, is longer and wider. In fact, there is more freshwater in Loch Nis than all the lakes in England & Wales combined.

Mòrag is Nessie's much less famous relative. Disappointingly, I didn't see Mòrag on my walk along the lochside.

Say what you will about WordPress, it runs on a cheap $3 a month hosting plan, you don't need root privileges or npm to install it, and you can update it by clicking a single button in the admin panel without ever learning git

Gosh I LOVE reading tech posts on personal blog and not on Medium . com!


I always have a lot to say about why Creep is a much better and more meaningful song when it's sung by pretty much anyone other than white cis guys, but Hildegard von Blingin's cover is so fuckin' special because "I want a perfect body, I want a perfect soul" is 100% a huge medieval mood

Yay! Just imported all my videos to #peertube from my two neglected YouTube channels, so now I have more videos on PeerTube than anywhere else.

All the videos are about learning to use #libre & #foss creative software, and by that I mean both art and dev creativity.

I really like PeerTube. Although still rough around the edges it just feels great to use. I think it has a super bright future.

Miii \o/

REVISION TO PREVIOUS COALITION POST: Due to input I've received from insightful folks with far more experience than me in these matters, I'd like to amend my previous post. Instead, I want to aid in building a coalition of folks that will offer $$$ & support for anti-abuse-centered social media projects. If you have info on these projects or like to help spread the word, let me know.

Decentralized tech is often celebrated here as preserving individual freedom, but it's proving to be an utter failure at holding bad actors accountable.

"We certainly can’t drive around as a lawful gun owner, like Philando Castile did, and tell an officer that we’re carrying a gun to feel safe — because we have no guarantee a cop won’t become terrified of the imaginary Black people in his mind and shoot a real one. (We can’t safely be a boy like Tamir Rice playing with a toy gun in a park either.)"

Show thread

"Black people know we can’t just step outside to go jogging. If we make the same choice Ahmaud Arbery did to live a healthier lifestyle, someone else might get scared and kill us. We can’t be a young woman like Renisha McBride who crashed her car and then walked up to someone’s house, knocked on the front door, looking for help from a neighbor, only to be shot to death through the screen door."

Show thread

"She told a 911 operator, voice deliberately quavering, that an “African-American” man was threatening her. After all, she knew what that particular descriptor would mean for the police response. She knew that one fact would stick in the imagination of the cops. She was so painfully familiar with how she and other people like her are afraid of the Black people in their imaginations that she used it against an actual Black person — a birdwatcher wearing a bike helmet in a public park."
