Absolutely devastating, I'm completely shocked. David Graeber was one of the best leftist/anarchist public intellectuals of our time.

Yea the new furniture set up doesn't suit me as much as i thought - Ctrl+Z !

...instead of wasting 4 hours putting it all back...

How incredibly useful would it be to be able to Ctrl+Z in real life...

The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you.

Voting isn't "radical action"

Voting isn't going to get us out of the quagmire we find ourselves in.

The government and police refuse to be held accountable to the people.

Don't fool yourself into thinking that votes have made things the way they are.

A massive system of exploitation and abuse did that. And it's not going to go away because some lawyer in a suit with a petition list asked nicely.

Now is the time to demand what is rightfully ours. The respect of our humanity.

Asking nicely hadn't worked. Voting hasn't worked. From where we are, the next step isn't to maybe try those things again because they might work this time.

It doesn't matter how old I am, whenever I think about my 5 years younger self, I always feel embarrassed by what a clueless fool I was back then.

This either means I'm constantly growing and learning... or that I'll forever remain a clueless fool.

Probably the latter.

The power of the state will never deliver joy, happiness and fulfillment to any society. Such power was created by drones for the sole purpose of pillage and indulgence of their often murderous violence against those who do produce, through their toil -- whether through determination, intelligence or brawn -- everything useful and good in man's life.
-- Nestor Makhno

JetBrains IDE accessed via browser thanks to projector. And it works well enough to use it with the iPad with 200ms latency :)

Very horrible video: Lethal police violence Amsterdam 

Last night in #Amsterdam the #police killed a German man with clearly mental problems. The man walked around holding (according the police) a knife against his throat. The policeman an the left (on video right) tries to use his dog to eliminate the German man, but the dog refuses to do so somehow. Instead the policeman knocks the man to the ground. The man panics. We can't see what happens next (why stops the camera filming this?). You hear a few shots and that is it.

This is yet another example of why the police is not suited to handle people with mental issues. Experts are asking for changes for years, all around the world. Why doesn't politicians in charge and the police doesn't listen? Yes the police must be abolished one day, but let's start with creating local teams of mental health experts who will handle this.

I'm fucking #ANGRY!

Any recommendations for #email hosting service? I'm willing to pay, rather than give all my data to Google. 😛

Preferrably some nice co-op-y/non-scummy EU based company, or something like that...

So apparently Mozilla let go 250 employees including the threat management team.
To make it even worse they announce this in a blog post full of corporate doublespeak.

Also Mitchel baker has a salary of 2.5$ Mil which apparently couldn't be lowered so they at least wouldn't have had to let got the *threat management team*.

Plain text is nice too?

to junior back-end devs: don't ever mention that you can do front-end in an emergency, or you'll do little else the rest of your career.
