Per the EFF, the EU passed Article 13.
As a reminder, if the #LinkTax passes the plenary vote, there's no longer any freedom of speech on the EU-Internet: all speech has to be ISP-approved, and all mention of any copyrighted material stripped away.
This is going to WRECK Mastodon, as well as all other federated services.
Please, if you're in the EU, contact your legislators.
There's so much bad in the world, I feel like there's one piece of good news to discuss:
My local fried chicken place delivers now.
Oooh, I got some decent job prospects. ... that I can tell you about in the morning.
Good night, niu, and good night, world. Take care of the people you love. Punch anyone who would take them away from you.
I have had people try to break into my car when I was in it. I have been struck by a drunk in a SUV. I have been in a ride at Universal Studios when the operator broke over the voiceover and said 'Brace for impact' in a very out of character command.
But nothing could have prepared me for the terror of walking up to a 20 person party holding an 8 inch pizza.
I can't believe I'm only hearing about the Project X Zone series for the first time.
Good night, niu, and good night, world.
Take care of the people you love. Punch anyone who would take them away from you.

for that matter... the business license is a legal entity separate from the ownership or the management.
After a certain size (~10 workers), the workers should have a legally protected right to hold a Vote of No Confidence and eject the board and management en masse.
The survival of a business, as a means of protecting the community's interests and the workers' needs, trumps a single groups' profits.

I mean... starting a business is not a right. It's the starting point of having increased access to money (the govt's key monopoly) and incredible power over the lives of workers (the safety of which is the govt's key duty).
Of course business owners should be held to a higher standard, and lose their license when they fall below that standard.
Someone FINALLY did a good tutorial on how to install RAM

So, Mueller has named several politicians who participated in the Russian affair. And, well, this is going to make a BIG mess of things.
The list includes politicians (current and former) in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, and Spain. Too big a list for the character count - which on Mastodon, is saying something.

while Trump tries desperately to get something, anything that can be seen as a win, the birdsite is going crazy with the queerest e3 in history while members of management from several major studios are having serious discussions about how the way they burn through staff is unsustainable and how they can concretely change working conditions for the better
and it warms the cockles of my heart to see
