Long time, and super active mapper Tshedy will spend next Friday on a 24 hr one woman #OpenStreetMap mapathon, to bring the map of #Lesotho to the next level of completeness.
An hour of your time mapping, or cheering on, can help.
@bob ung. The British were making jokes about "euro sausage" and "we can't call the British sausage sausage any more because of Brussels"... since a 1984 episode of Yes Minister.
Brexit was caused by more than just Facebook/Cambridge Alaytica
@lesbianhacker I dunno about what FF will do, but i think the spec is aware that browsers might want to always block pings
"For example, the user agent might wish to ignore any or all ping URLs in accordance with the user's expressed preferences."
So that's something.....
@lesbianhacker isn't the theory that a web browser should allow the user to turn the ping off? To just not send the ping?
You're not better than anyone else.
And no-one else is better than you.

@BartG95 Imagine if #DRM was used for privacy. Now-a-days a song you buy & download is locked with DRM. Imagine if your selfies (or nudes) were DRM locked. And the site/company/app you gave them to was legally required to follow the DRM restrictions you had put on the file.
Imagine if you could "revoke" all access to one particular photo you had taken!
Someone removed the burnded building:part's of #NotreDame in #OpenStreetMap
State of the Map 2020: The call for venues is now open! Assemble your team and propose your city as host for the next OpenStreetMap conference! https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2019/04/16/state-of-the-map-2020-call-for-venues-open/
@jalcine I wonder is that like the "you don't hate technological improvements, you hate capitalism"?
If software is A/B tested in order to squeeze more money/engagement out of people, that's bad. If it's used to address UI mistakes, to fix common crashes, to find out what's popular/often used and hence focus effort there, that's good, right?
You could use A/B testing? Especially if it's hosted software that you host?
If you want to find a DIY/crafty way to do a thing, "arduino" is a useful term to add to your search engine. A web search for "embroidery machine arduino" got me exactly what I was looking for. 🙂 "make your own embroidery machine" got lots of SEO type results ("make your photos into patterns for your embroidery machine" etc)
Here's someone turning a #sewing machine into a programmable #embroidery machine with an #arduino & #3dPrinted things.
@oakreef That's a great idea. Someone's already made the #OpenStreetMap logo 'embroidery ready'!
