Joachim Rohloff liefert in der aktuellen konkret zum Einstieg in seinen Artikel "Mein dudenloses Dasein" eine so gute wie knappe Darstellung der Debatte um Gendern vs. generisches Maskulinum.

Nice post by @baldur "Nobody gives a hoot about groupthink", especially the part on organizing an organisation's information: baldurbjarnason.com/2021/the-g

"Almost everybody builds their internal library of documents as an improvised layer of garbage and weeds."

I wonder what tools for the alternative user-subjective information management approach already exist.

‘The web is not "open" if nobody new can write a web browser engine. It's the illusion of openness.’

This point, made in an excellent thread over on the bird site, gets to the heart of the matter. What we have today on the web is the illusion of openness.

Das Fediverse ist ein Netzwerk aus Plattformen, die wie bekannte Social-Media-Dienste funktionieren, aber allen gehören. Ein Schaubild stellt das Fediverse und seine Akteure schlicht, informativ und dennoch übersichtlich dar.

Netflix gibt mir heute Überschriften in Deutsch, Englisch und Swahili.

"The ugly, geeky war for web privacy is playing out in the W3C": protocol.com/amp/w3c-privacy-w

Reading this article was very helpful for me in understanding what is currently going in at the W3C. Not very surprising, neither the browser vendors nor ad biz really care about privacy, in the article, it's only Ashkan Soltani who really does.

Mozilla is basically a not-for-profit/for-profit that protects/violates your privacy.

I don’t understand why some people are confused. It’s really quite simple.

Why does Mozilla Corporation exist?

Because Google (and Baidu, etc.) pay it ~ $500,000,000 a year

Why do Google (and Baidu, etc.) pay it so much?

Because it gives them access to track you.

Nice post by Leigh Dodds on "Some lessons learned from building standards around Schema.org": blog.ldodds.com/2021/05/19/som

There are lots of similarities with our experience in our OER Metadata group where we are creating a metadata profile mainly based on schema.org / LRMI, using SKOS for controlled vocabularies and providing a JSON schema for validation. (See slides.lobid.org/dcmi2020/ for details.)

Really glad endoflife.date/ exists, very useful for maintaining web infra or other Internet services, to avoid getting bitten by those pesky end-of-life deadlines.
