Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:

Tech; socialism; democratization of tech 

"Because all the day’s computers, including Galaksija, ran their programs on cassette, Regasek thought Modli might broadcast programs over the airwaves as audio during his show. The idea was that listeners could tape the programs off their receivers as they were broadcast, then load them into their personal machines.

An overnight sensation, this DJing practice quickly became a staple on Modli’s show. In the ensuing months, Ventilator 202 broadcast hundreds of computer programs. During the hour, Modli would announce when the segment was approaching, signaling to his listeners that it was time for them to fetch their equipment, cue up a tape, and get ready to hit record. Fans began to write programs with the expressed intention of mailing them into the station and broadcasting them during the segment."

πŸ‚ I'm enhancing old artworks for a special artbook project: tweaking color for CMYK, adding bleeds, painting more details and resizing them for my desktop publishing in Scribus. It's a long process but very rewarding. Here is one of my fav with a new background:
#krita

i'm starting to think that people's understanding of "social construct" begins and ends with "it's not real," thus missing the "but people believe in it, which actually makes it real" part

Hundreds of cases by LAPD being opened to review after three officers found to have lied and framed suspects. Also LAPD is apparently banned from uploading to the Gang database (already something that should be banned) because they couldn't even justify their uploads

me: WRITINGGGGGGGG

unpopular opinion among americans 

@prophet_goddess yeah thats real. i hope everyone can experience the relaxation of public bathing without it being weird someday

i think about once a week i see some game programmer show their ass by implying that abstraction wastes time. i honestly think this is why every video game takes 2+ years to make. creating a hierarchical mess where you cant touch anything without breaking half the game isn't abstraction, it's just bad code

as a dude adjacent or dudely person it baffles me when i hear men say "how are women supposed to know im interested in them these days if i cant hit on them!!" have you tried

- being kind
- having shared interests
- putting effort into your personal appearance
- genuine and not gross compliments
- doing a favor without expectations in return
- inviting them to do something fun together

@Mycroft of course you bring this up the day I'm wearing my Alan Turning shirt!

Being kept awake by noisy eurasian oystercatchers.

Having someone intentionally ignore a small thing you told them not to do is a big red flag. "It's not a big deal, it was just a joke" is not a good excuse

A good thing to do is to respect boundaries that your friends set, even when they seem very trivial

Okay here’s an opinion. Markov bots should have a CW on every toot they make, that reads β€œoutput of markov bot” or similar. Because when they get boosted onto my timeline with no CW I’m left stressing out trying to work out why I don’t comprehend what this person is saying, until eventually I work out it was a bot and I wasted that energy because it was meaningless. Can y’all see why an autistic person would find text that looks like real language but doesn’t make sense a trigger and a drain of energy? And that it’s a valid position to not want to waste my time reading words recycled by an unthinking computer script even if other people find them hilarious?
Even putting β€œbot” or β€œebooks” in the display name isn’t good enough because people do that too as a joke! But it’s more ableist than it is funny.
