A year with password manager bitwarden

I moved from 1Password to @bitwarden almost exactly a year ago, and I've written up my thoughts.

tl;dr. I am a fan... mostly.

(I am using the self-hosted version; most of this will also be relevant to the bitwarden-hosted vault.)

Just read a story about the Denver case against Google searches, and also remembered a story about fake warrants to some big tech companies … I initially thought that at least they’d done some due diligence to have a judge signed off in these difficult cases. One could see & read about potential & real ramifications of these searches. But I also wonder about the qualifications of judges in these situations & whether they were sufficiently technologically aware to be objective about the cases.

Some period tracking apps will share your data. Stay safe, use one from @fdroidorg without Internet permission.

Possible options are:
drip (safest!)
Periodical
log28

All of these apps don't ask for internet permission and thus can't share your data. Drip goes the extra mile and explicitly opts out of Android's backup framework so your data won't be backed up on Google servers.

Please boost for those who need it!

@feditips Is it possible to somehow link static pages like github/codeberg pages to fediverse? Like there’s a wordpress plugin for activitypub, is there one for static pages for blogging?

Over 4 billion people use the Web. Fewer than 10 million people use the Fediverse.

If you're a developer and wish to make the Fediverse more popular, building Fedi tools for users already in the Fediverse will barely change that number. Building Web services that just happen to have Fediverse integration will make for a massive change.

One of the best parts of collaborating with @m3me is being able to discuss various aspects of #techethics at length. We thought these conversations might be interesting to others who are exploring the emerging field of #responsibletech, so we've decided to start sharing them with the world in our monthly #TalkingTethix Show.

You can now watch the first episode on why tech ethics is more than just a role on our YT channel: youtube.com/channel/UCYcZseCgS

Replace every article about Elon Musk with an article about someone fixing/maintaining important infrastructure. A person repairing buses. A person repairing and tweaking wheelchairs. A person tending to a community garden.

Replace every breathless take about the sentience of some "AI" with a report on how a community organized to solve their current need and how to support those kinds of processes.
