"No one is forced to use Facebook"
I hear that often, but I know of many people who had to create accounts and start to use Facebook for things like classes, community participation, and family communication. It's assumed you have it, and we don't make affordances for those who don't.
Perhaps we're not forced with violence or laws, but we are strongly coercing each other to use it. I never created an account for various reasons, and I have lost touch with people as a result.

There's a new version for littr.me, the minimalist link aggregator and fedbox, the generic #activitypub service.
This one is mostly about dockerization and having an easy way to deploy everything.

If you do attend and never used BBB why not watch a short introduction video

Why is it that the "frightening AI" news stories these days seem to be about AI that's frighteningly bad, rather than AI that's frighteningly good?
"Just because there is now a multi-billion-dollar industry based on the abject betrayal of our privacy doesn’t mean the sociopaths who built it have any right whatsoever to continue getting away with it"
The Social Dilemma is a great documentary. Will hopefully spread awareness about the issues with social media and surveillance capitalism.
