Reminds me of 2020, when in the Netherlands the NPO (national broadcasting service, akin to BBC), removed third-party tracking and actually increased their revenue in doing so: techcrunch.com/2020/07/24/data

Can anyone recommend a good article on Alt Text writing for artists?

Ideally, one that is written by someone who uses a screen reader.

Please help your favourite open source project in any way you can.

Write or fix documentation, fix code, open issues - do whatever you can to assist. Get in touch with the developers and ask what they need.

In all likelihood, the project is being maintained by a tiny group of people who cannot bear the burden alone. And once they burn out, so does your favourite project.

Get involved!

Scribblings include:
"I visited and did not like anything but the sarcophagus!" and "I cannot read the hieroglyphs."

Friends, an easy step toward democratization of the economy is moving your money to a credit union. So let's say July 14th is Fediverse Move your Money Day!

In Japan this has been an important part of the fossil fuels divestment campaign by 350.org. When you choose a credit union, ask them about their investments (you'll probably be the first one to ask).

Please boost

Hello! I am a scientist and parent looking to chat with folks about the future — the scary parts and also the hopeful parts. I'm interested in #permacomputing, the small internet, and doing more with less. I've been writing at degrowther.smol.pub/ and more recently sharing stuff at retrace.club/~mycorrhiza/. #introductions

朋友们,我强烈推荐这个视频里出现的第一个什么K-town开店朋友腌猪肉的方子。我昨天用这个方子腌的五花肉和牛肉,然后今天烤了,蘸一点辣椒粉,完全是韩式烤肉那个味道,绝了。里面的黄糖我没有放那么多,感觉甜度也是够的,我以后每次烧烤应该都会复刻,实在是太好吃了,强烈推荐
