“These efforts are well intentioned, but #FacialRecognition bans are the wrong way to fight against modern #surveillance. Focusing on one particular identification method misconstrues the nature of the #SurveillanceSociety we’re in the process of building […]
This is a thing I can get behind - boycotting News Limited papers and web assets. I'm tempted to use a Murdoch DNS block list to do it for my entire network.

Mike's one piece of advice for new Mastodon users - dive into that Federated column and follow ANYONE and EVERYONE who looks like they've posted anything at all interesting to you. Just hammer the button. There's no penalty for mistakes. Go wild.
