Can you touch type?

Had a conversation on here which surprized me - someone said touch typing wasn't as prevelant as I though.

I haven't worked with anyone in the last... I don't know, 30 years? who could not. (That's across 3 countries.) It was taught (and required) in schools (4 different schools systems, 2 different US states) when I was in school (pre-home computers, 10 years before the internet.)

I'd like to know - of the people on the Fediverse, who can touch type?
(That would, I assume, mean people who are typing things somewhat regularly.)

(Please boost, 7 day poll)

There will be a follow up poll about "taught in school" so I can understand a bit more.

If you rely professionally on IRC, I'd love to hear about your usage!

What IRC networks do you connect to?
What communities are you in?
What do you love about it?
What are your gripes with it?

🔄 Boosts welcome, help me reach people out of my circles!

Anyone in my network know if MongoDB is a decent place to work? Treats people well, does decent with D&I, etc.? I have someone I think would be a good fit for a role there but I'd like to get a culture pulse before making the connection…

DM if you don't feel comfortable replying in public. Boosts for visibility are appreciated.

People should learn a bit about e-mail… spread the link, it’s a public service you are doing. :-)


I got zero responses last time I hit up the Fediverse offering paid creative work, but I'm not giving up!

Some #Owncast features being worked on require iconography. And while we could use an icon library or something like Fiverr it'd be nice to work with an illustrator on the Fediverse who focuses on icons to have something that is custom.

This is paid work, so please boost and tell your friends.

Feel free to message me on the fediverse or email me: gabek@real-ity.com

What's your primary OS?

Boosts appreciated for sample size :)

google antitrust filing thread from @fasterthanlime@twitter.com 

RT Lock (with permission):

Ok so, I just read through all 173 pages of the unredacted Google antitrust filing and I have to say that either Google is screwed or society is screwed, we'll find out which.

Unordered list of fun things I learned:

- google has a secret deal with facebook called "Jedi Blue" that they knew was so illegal that it has a whole section describing how they'll cover for each other if anyone finds out
- google appears to have a team called gTrade that is wholly dedicated to ad market manipulation
- Google had a plan called "Project NERA" to turn the web into a walled garden they called "Not Owned But Operated". A core component of this was the forced logins to the chrome browser you've probably experienced (surprise!)
- Google is willing to do almost everything to prevent people from circumventing their ad exchanges
- This is what AMP is about
- Google habitually insider trades on their ad exchanges in every way you can think of and every way you can't. Too many ways to list here.
- The exchanges are also rigged so that google wins on bids where they aren't the highest bidder.
- A large amount of people inside google are aware of all of this
- If Google ever tells you some change will increase your ad yield, run. In fact anything they tell you is a lie
- Google has worked with Facebook and Microsoft to discourage them from increasing user privacy, lamenting occasions where they prioritized their reputation over their collective business interest

You can read the full unredacted document for yourself here:

I'm gonna keep posting this until one of you fucking boosts it
