#Medium now fully completed their paywalling efforts. The public page's now completely inaccessible without logging in.

Unsuspecting visitors to Medium's #articles now can't #read them unless they lock themselves into the platform.

The ability to search for new #content written by independent creators? Gone! The goal's to usurp content created by others free of charge to make you pay the centralized platform to access it.

#Plume exists to combat this, using the power of the #fediverse.

financial need, boosts appreciated 

We are still $1,400 short of the full repair cost.

Anything helps.

Especially boosting and sharing to other social media.

Someone out there has enough to cover our need, and every penny helps ensure our ongoing survival and R&D efforts.

Also updated the Ko-Fi with a bunch of trip pictures and more of the generator:

Blizzard banned a Hearthstone player for pro-Hong Kong statements, so HK protestors are appropriating Mei (from Overwatch) as a symbol of the free Hong Kong movement.

This is, sources say, my shit

if you've read about the Hearthstone player getting banned from competing and losing his prize money for support democracy in Hong Kong you might also like to know that people are making art with Blizzard character supporting Hong Kong since it will probably cause Blizzard to get banned in china like they did to Winnie the Pooh.

This is Democracy Mei from Overwatch

Important Transgender PSA (Halloween Related) - Please Boost 

IMPORTANT SPOOPTOBER PSA: I know that those foods colored with activated charcoal so they’re jet-black are super cool looking and tempting. But, please keep in mind that activated charcoal can limit your body’s ability to absorb any medications you may be taking by absorbing it first, including things like birth control and HRT! That’s because activated charcoal is also used to counteract poisoning and drug overdoses, as it binds to a variety of chemicals quite well.

Consume novelty foodstuffs responsibly! You don’t want your body to miss a dose because that black ice cream you had prevented it from being absorbed! Stay safe, my loves!

Oh, and while you’re here, don’t forget to take any meds you do need and to drink plenty of water! 💖💖💖

all video games should have an easy mode

preferably a wide range of settings to customise how difficult each thing is so you can tweak it for your desired amount of challenge

but at least an easy mode

Github has a $200,000 contract with ICE that they just renewed.

you know how if you aren't going to be home for trick-or-treating you leave candy out for kids to just take freely

what if people did that every day and with more than just candy for everyone in their communities

Techbros: We cant make licences that prevent evil, its against open source.

Also techbros: *takes money from ice to do evil*

so i started off using the nes color palette but i didnt quite stick to hardware limitation rules i just kinda started sketching a scene lol oops but i like it anyway. im behind so i prolly shouldnt worry too much about color correction and whatnot lmao #inktoberday7 #enchanted

So, uh. You know Invidious, the privacy-focused front end for YouTube?

Someone made the same thing except it's for Twitter. And it has RSS support.

uhh.. apparently CBD reacts similarly as grapefruit to certain medications so if you take CBD and other meds, probably check to make sure you aren't accidentally poisoning yourself?

Are you an artist living in #Venezuela 🇻🇪 ? Have you lost access to #Adobe PhotoShop due to the embargo?

I have an extra copy of the Corel Suite, which includes Corel Painter 2019, PaintShop Pro 2020, and additional tools. It's not the same, but it's comparable, and if that would help you out, I would love to send this to you.

The software has a *perpetual license. It will be yours forever.

If this interests you, hit me up!

¿Eres artista y vives en #Venezuela? 🇻🇪 ¿Ha perdido el acceso a #Adobe PhotoShop debido al embargo?

Tengo una copia adicional de Corel Suite, que incluye Corel Painter 2019, PaintShop Pro 2020 y herramientas adicionales. No es lo mismo, pero es comparable, y si eso te ayudara, me encantaría enviarte esto.

El software tiene una licencia perpetua. Será tuyo para siempre.

Si esto le interesa, ¡contácteme! (Pido disculpas por mi español. Estoy usando el traductor de Google. 😅 )

I keep reading people here saying tech should unionize, so I figured it doesn't hurt to remind everyone that at least in France we do have a union for tech workers (but not just them) called Solidaires Informatique:

It's organized democratically, with a strong feminist, antiracist, antiLGBTphobic, antifascist and internationalist stance which is, as the name implies, rooted in worker solidarity and mutual aid.

And yes, tech workers should unionize.
