I have little patience for people who spend a substantial amount of time on explaining why they are making a point instead of actually making the point.

Content Warning: (In Swedish) om rasim och antirasism

Mattias Gardell har alltid varit en förebild för mig, och här är en väldigt bra interjuv som jag tycker alla ska ta del av som handlar om rasism i Sverige.

Rasism har funnits i drygt 500 år, långt innan idén om biologisk rasism dök upp. Det säger Mattias Gardell, professor @UU_University. Expos Faktalabbet har pratat med Mattias om vad rasism är och hur den tar sig uttryck. https://bit.ly/3g79nJM

Rich white man holding an assault rifle (pointed away), pointing a finger at unfocused protestor in the foreground.
White woman stands besides the man holding a hand gun looking away.
Unfocused protestor in foreground is pointing both hands towards the rich white man.

The white man and protestor seems to be exchanging arguments, perhaps shouting at each other.

(This is one of many images widely circulating in media recently of a couple standing outside of their property holding guns while a protest passes by.)

currently trying to find ppl who have queer or synthy blogs or podcasts etc ~

if you know of anyone who might be interested in featuring the Powderpaint EP pls lmk ^^

Virtually every time the World Bank and IMF have intervened in global South countries in the name of development, the goal has been to make labour (i.e., human beings) cheaper.

"On June 14 [2018]a family court judge ruled in favour of an unconventional family — made up of two men and a woman — who all wanted to be legally recognized as parents to a child the woman had in 2017.

All three now have their names listed as legal guardians. Before, the law only allowed two people to be listed."

I think the concept of "species loneliness" has it right. Living in an economic system that regards nonhuman beings - plants, animals, ecosystems - as a mere stock of resources to be exploited leaves us on some subconscious level deeply troubled by the trauma of our separation.

"How to be a good white ally, according to activists

Three experts on what it does and doesn’t mean to be an ally, now and always."

This thread is full of gold.

I can't do a lot of thinking or working lately. The circumstances don't allow it.

But I can't help but be bothered by the internet finding yet another of Martin Luther King Jr's quotes to say what they want him to say.

A public request for comments, any good discourse welcome.

Content warning: UX/UI thoughts on simplicity vs complexity:

Click to open/closeA UI should present the task with all of it's complexity in an as simple manner as possible.
Any UI that reduces the complexity of the task is a failure in UX design.

Am I missing something?
Thoughs?

Perhaps unpopular and unconventional opinion of problems of peer review in science and academia:

Click to open/closeWorks published only in for profit journals inevitably have a conflict of interest and should be regarded as problematic for that reason. It also inhibits proper peer review. If a work can't be freely accessed and referred* to it shouldn't be regarded as a serious contribution to the scientific community.

* A reference to a work that isn't freely available is also highly problematic.
