Es ist wunderbar zu sehen wie schockiert Menschen sind wenn sie Anfangen sich mal mit den Machenschaften der großen Internetkonzerne und Datenschutz zu beschäftigen. Und noch besser wenn sie das dann auch reflektieren.

Schul-IT Best Practice gesucht: Eigentlich wollte ich mich mit der Technik einer datenschutzkonformen Schul-IT-Lösung nicht beschäftigen aber scheinbar geht's doch nicht ohne. Listen mit Tools gibts ja schon viele, ich würde deswegen gerne Gesamtlösungen und auch die Wege zur Lösung anhand von konkreten Beispielen vorstellen. Gibt es Schulen, die bereit wären, ihre Schul-IT-Lösung vorzustellen, gerne auch anonym, um damit anderen Schulen Anregungen zu geben?
Looking for a job in Berlin Show more
I am looking for a mini-job in Berlin. I have an MA in theoretical linguistics and German literature and 4/7 of my studies of BSc computational linguistics.
I did a lot of stuff including coding but mainly did care work in the last 10 years.
Boosts are welcome.
"We didn't call it fuzzing back in the 1950s, but it was our standard practice to test programs by inputting decks of punch cards taken from the trash.
We also used decks of random number punch cards. We weren't networked in those days, so we weren't much worried about security, but our random/trash decks often turned up undesirable behavior.
Every programmer I knew used the trash-deck technique."

A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”
It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”
It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)
By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.
And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.
Researching parts for a PC-build… just totally escalates because I don‘t want to spend a lot of money. Yet I want something that can last for a while.
For me this is a rather absurd conundrum. I‘ll probably procrastinate this by spending 100% project time on picking parts instead of building.
hey y'all, I would appreciate boosts for this, there's a petition appealing to the British government for the removal of gender markers from ID (passports, drivers license, etc) and only folks from the UK may sign it but if it reaches 10,000 signatures, it is guaranteed a response from the government and if it reaches 100,000 it may even be debated in parliament
it only takes a few seconds to sign but could make a massive difference https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/327554
Got a text from NHS Blood Donation asking me to give blood again soon. My previous booking was cancelled because of the pandemic and it slipped my mind to book an other one so that's sorted now, I'm glad they sent out a reminder.
