I'm a doctoral researcher in , and I plan to test sluice-model of argument flow from periphery to core.

I'm also interested in and in general.

Non-academic interests include server administration & service hosting, video games.

This is not my first account in the Fediverse, but this time I want to make full use of the "local timeline" feature. (:

Quo vadis Digital Democracy? Thinking about submitting a poster proposal for the reconstruction of the digital public sphere in the fediverse… 🤔

Make a to-do list if you're feeling overwhelmed. Sometimes it helps to break things down into smaller pieces.

It's probably old news already but #CalyxOS has test builds of Android 12 available for the #Fairphone4
Don't get confused by the date of the post, the image downloads do exist 😉

✨️ I made a thing! 🎉️

After several weeks of leaving the house really early, I finally get back to my normal schedule and my s.o. thinks I'm on leave, because I'm sleeping so long. :BlobCatGoogly:

Neural technology for a new token

Don't know what to think of this. Sceptical of buzzwords in general, but maybe this would be an actual worthy application? Any opinions? :boost_requested:

After Mozilla recently began accepting donations via BitPay, many people started being vocal about cancelling Mozilla and Firefox and switching to other browsers.

I know crypto sucks, but don't y'all realize that the other browser engines are developed by megacorps that are LEAGUES ahead in terms of ecologic impact, and that are almost entirely built on top of evil business models?

Mozilla's only sin was accepting donations via BitPay. Please let's stop being so toxic about everything, and boycott BitPay and Bitcoin rather than Mozilla, shall we?

So, for 4, when? It's all that's keeping me from pre-ordering. 😁 @Fairphone :boost_requested:

Anyone can help me to buy a computer? What features do you think are mandatory and recommended? AMD vs Intel CPU? Minimum RAM? The only requirement: it could be linux friendly.

So Nvidia GPU bannef

Erhöhte Hardware-Anforderungen von Windows 11 sorgen derzeit für viel Diskussionen, da einige erst kürzlich gekaufte Systeme diese nicht erfüllen.

Dagegen sind die Hardware-Anforderungen der #OpenSource #Betriebssysteme moderat und können daher älterer Hardware zu Software mit aktuellem Patchstatus verhelfen. Für Desktop-Oberflächen gibt es darüber hinaus Alternativen mit explizit geringem Ressourcenbedarf.
So verbinden sich IT-Sicherheit und Nachhaltigkeit.

What's your primary OS?

Boosts appreciated for sample size :)

The "forceless force of the dominant standard" – love that quote. So dense and so Habermasian, hehe.

Reading about the digital public sphere is often so frustrating… authors would generally see and acknowledge the platform problematic, and sometimes even demand that they must be *shaped*… but they lack any vision *how*. Centralisation is not even identified as a problem.
