Alright, blocked the new Trump domains in advance. Good thing they announced it ahead of time.

"The ‘Facebook Files’ on Instagram harms – all leaked slides on a single page"

cw: suicide, self-harm, mh -, undescribed images

«Here, on a single, convenient, scrollable page, are Facebook’s internal research presentation slides from the 2021 ‘Facebook Files‘ leak. The slides reveals Facebook’s own research on the potential effects of Instagram on teen wellbeing [...].»

"it's not real it can't hurt you"

complex analysis:

Once again my #coop is hiring:

We do open data stuff for public good. This role in particular is focussed on beneficial ownership data analysis and standards development, but internally there's a lot of flexibility about what you work on and we have a variety of ongoing projects. It's particularly fun to do transparency and anti-corruption stuff though.

We have flat pay, are all remote, mostly UK-based, mostly part time, extremely flexi, and always looking for new ways to improve our wellbeing.

There's a birdsite thread with more info here: (which I might recreate on here later).

BIRD-WORK: Verb. To jump. To leap.

ex. "He was bird-working down the road"

Museums are finding it nearly impossible to post imagery containing artistic nudity on social media because their posts keep getting deleted and accounts suspended or banned, so Vienna's museums opened a page on OnlyFans.

TikTok closed the Alberta museum account for showing an obscured woman's breast.

Facebook ruled the 25,000 year old Venus of Willendorf figurine as pornographic and removed the post.

Ukpol, MP assassination 

I never wish death upon people. It's not in my nature. It disturbs me to do it even casually.

Speaking ill of the dead on the other hand, that I can do. Parliament has lost a god-bothering, anti-abortion, gay-hating, Brexiteering, capital punishment-lover.

Remember than when the media spends the next couple of weeks fawning over his animal rights work.

we can talk a lot about how bad tumblr culture is (and it is) but the Rule Zero, "don't talk to terven, period, no matter how tempting it might be" needs to be adopted on Fedi and Twitter

I've made an alternative frontend to Medium:

If you, like me, are occasionally forced to read articles on, now you can read them on Scribe instead! Feedback welcome.
