Von Twitter zu Mastodon – ist das ein guter Wechsel? – Schreiblehrling

As Mastodon is growing, it becomes clear that many of the problems that we face in social media aren’t solved by simply replacing monolithic corporate-owned infrastructure with a decentralized one. That – it seems – was the easy part. The hard problems appear to be sociological. How do you protect an individual from an angry mob? How do you find out if the mob’s anger is justified or not? We can’t hope to answer these questions with technology.

No Nazi was ever a Holocaust denier

Bookmarked

 This one, simple fact shows that everything the modern deniers try to claim is a post hoc contrivance. From 1945 onwards, thousands of Nazis were captured and hundreds tried for their part in the Holocaust and other crimes against humanity. They tried to pretend they were someone else, they tried to pretend they didn’t know what was happening, they tried to pretend they didn’t have as much to do with it as others, they tried to claim they were just following orders and they tried to justify it as „the kind of thing that happens in war“. But what not one of them ever did was deny it happened.

Die Quelle gibt es leider nicht mehr (Link) – das Argument gilt nach wie vor.

Verlinkt: I Moved to Linux and It’s Even Better Than I Expected

Bookmarked

On a spring day in 2012, I shut down my MacBook Air for the last time. From then on, my primary computing environment — at least on a laptop computer — was GNU/Linux. I was abandoning, as much as possible, the proprietary, control-freakish environments that Apple and Microsoft have increasingly foisted on users of personal computers.

Der zweite Bundestags-Untersuchungsausschuss zum NSU hat sich konstituiert

Bookmarked

„Die Fragestellung des neuen Untersuchungsausschusses und das gängige Narrativ machen deutlich: Die Erzählung von mangelnder Vernetzung und Kompetenzstreitigkeiten zwischen den Behörden hat sich durchgesetzt. Doch sie erklärt nicht das Schweigen, Lügen, Vertuschen und Schreddern der Geheimdienste, mit dem schon der erste Ausschuss ständig konfrontiert war.“
